COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Jack IPA is our first ever Imperial IPA. It features a big malty middle to cloak the high alcohol and mouth puckering hop bitterness. Huge tangerine, grapefruit and juicy fruit aroma blossom over the herbal blue basil and malt earthiness of this aggressive beer. Best enjoyed in moderation.

Draft snifter at Bavarian Lodge, $6. Oooh, fresh Amarillo hops for sure from the first whiff. Thin, clingy white head and…yipes! I just can’t get the impression of cat whizz out of my nose. Tha’ss one big hoppy beer. Really clear copper-amber color, which I suggest is their Union system at work. The first sip brings in syrupy malts, not sticky, but bright, with some impressions of iced tea. Hops are still nearly bringing tears to my eyes, so you’ve got to really be a hop-head to enjoy this one. Coats the tongue with both malt and bitterness, yet the total mouthfeel is a little lighter than, say a Hopslam. Still delivers on that big hippity hop hop. A smack in the face with a bale of wet hops. Did I mention this was hoppy?

Barwa: złocista, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, ładnie oblepiająca szkło [5/5] Aromat: słodowy (zbożowy, herbatnikowy i nieco karmelowy) z dominującym akcentem chmielowym (melon, cytrusy, zioła). Niestety trochę mniej przyjemnych naleciałości chmielu zielonego, łodygowego również obecnych, alkohol natomiast nieźle ukryty. [4,5/5] Smak: słodowy, słodki i pełny, z wytrawną chmielową kontrą. Goryczka nieco powyżej średniej, ale przyjemna i niezalegająca. Następne piwo, na które zapolowałem w Żywcu i z tego co widziałem rozchodziło się, jak przysłowiowe "ciepłe bułeczki". Jest to legendarne piwo, wielokrotnie nagradzane na konkursach (m.in. złotymi medalami na trzech ostatnich edycjach European Beer Star). Z tego powodu miałem bardzo dużą ochotę na ten trunek i wiązałem z nim spore nadzieje. Barwa i piana są świetne, natomiast aromat i smak jedynie dobre. Wiąże się to zapewne z datą rozlewu tego piwa, bowiem ma ono już 9 miesięcy i choć data przydatności jeszcze długa to aromaty chmielowe zdążyły się już niestety częściowo ulotnić. Szkoda, bowiem jeśli tak smakuje w chwili obecnej można sobie jedynie wyobrazić jak dobre musi być świeże...

When a brewery is able to craft an Imperial IPA that’s intensely hoppy and still extremely drinkable it’s a rare feat. The fact that Double Jack utilizes some extremely aggressive hop varieties (Warrior, Cascade, Amarillo, Simcoe, and Centennial) makes its balance even more impressive. The tremendous malt backbone on this beer allows it to reach a happy medium between malts and hops. (Regrettably, I almost used the unforgivably cheesy term "hoppy medium" to describe the balance. I’ll go sit in a corner for a while.) You first notice the uniqueness of this beer when you see the surprisingly pale color. Hopheads who are thrown off by the appearance will be calmed by the big herbal, floral smell. People who are less excited about hops will be happy to note the smooth malt profile in the aroma. The taste is simply spectacular. Tropical, juicy, and savory flavors all the way through. Hop flavors come with peach, orange, grapefruit, and tangerine while the malt hints at sweet nectar. Finish is crisp, bright, and refreshing. Double Jack is one of those exceptional IPA’s that has the potential to please hop heads and craft beer lovers who are less crazy about bittering agents.

HuskerTan (451) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. A- Peaches, tangerines, citrus, juicy. A- Vibrant orange color, slightly hazy liquid, white head. T- Citrus, tangerines, fruity, juicy, bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth juicy finish. O- As damn good of an IPA as you’ll find. So juicy and filled with citrus. Almost like a stronger version of Fresh Squeezed IPA by Deschutes. Not a lot to say about this beer other than it is a fine one.

(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with a white head. Piney hop aroma with lots of citrus sweetness. Flavor is piney at the start and bitter throughout and into the end.
