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.

22oz bottle, moderate gusher. aroma is well balanced grainy pine and distinct grapefruit. maltiness is pleasant and comes in bounds, earthy and organic. appearance is deep gold near ruby with active carb and floating island head, ring as well. flavor is substantial lightly darkened citrus up front and BIG lasting bitterness on tail end, booze is present but melds well into big, beefy maltiness. never comes across as offensive or even reveals on its own, just partners with the grain bill and rolls on through.

angelkostvo (793) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 19, 2015
Hazy orange colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, mandarins, candy sugar, really there is a basil note, more on the sweet side, but the bottle is 2 years old. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Pretty good

Pours a clear golden orange color with a nice head and decent lacing. A blast of pine and citrus (grapefruit); this is definitely a hop bomb. More hoppiness. Pine and citrus flavor. Nicely carbonated, with a hoppy bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste.

ALLOVATE (2538) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2015
A delicious DIPA, from go to whoa, even given it was bottled last October. Cool and into a snifter. Appears to suffer from chill haze as it settles. A hazed, pastel orange with fine conditioning and short-lived, frothy, off-white foam. Big, bold and pungent, resinous hop nose displaying notes of grapefruit, tangelo, mandarin and stewed rhubarb amongst some pine sap, eucalypt, camphor and pot pourri - complex and deep. Ooooh, there is some artisanal balance here. Big fruit, plummy and jammy with all that aroma at play throughout. Oily with plenty of presence. Lightly bitter peak before more plump fruit in the finish as well as a kick from the alcohol to remind one they are drinking a strong ale. Carbonation is prickly, heightening all that is going on. This is a sumptuous, big IPA. I need to go out and grab a few more and settle in for the night. Delicious!! (12fl.Oz, bottled 30/10/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

chuckstout (306) - Washington, USA - APR 12, 2015
Big hop aroma pine and citrus, pours a clearance orange with dense pillowing off white head and great lacing. Light carbonation and and a smooth bitterness that increases through out the palette blending the citrus and pine along with a hint of alcohol before disappearing leaving you want another drink. Some nice malt character with a bit of rich bread and caramel sweetness to help roast round it out.

euniceradio (68) - Colton, California, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pours deep orange sunset. Head is frothy white. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, citrus and light bready caramel. Taste is the same with tangerine and mango on the bitter finish. Good bright dipa. Most are malty. This is balanced on the hoppy side. Love it!

Bottle and tap. Had a long time ago for both. Remember they both were great. The tap Gave more citrus flavors, the bottle has a barrel aged taste to it.

THE best double IPA on the market, Firestone really hit a home-run with this one. Best of all, its available year round and is not hounded as a white whale (you know what Im talking about w Pliny and Heady Topper)....while there are IPAs that gleam higher stature, this one stands up to em all without one having to go crazy finding it.
