Fruity, citrusy, peaches, apricot, caramel, quite some booze in the aroma. Taste is peaches and apricot, nice residual sweetness, good body, grapefruit and tropical fruit, warming bitter finish. Quite a different IPA!

ctipping (117) - Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2015
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Clear amber body without a huge head. Off white head reduced to thin lacing. Not an overwhelming aroma, really. The faint aroma is fruity and citrusy. Some mango smell and grapefruit. More predominant is the caramel malt that smells very sweet. Significantly better than the smell. The grapefruit is the strongest flavor, but the rest are tough to discern. No hop flavor is overwhelming. The malt is just sweet enough to feel like a DIPA, which is nice, but it doesn’t taste overly sweet. Perfectly balanced. Low carbonation and medium bodied. A bit sluggish. Great flavor and easy to drink.

Golden pour with decent off white head. Has a fruit, pine, citrus, and spice aroma. Flavors of caramel, spices, resinous pine, and grapefruit. medium body that was slick and chewy on the palate with a slight alcohol warming finish. Nicely balanced, and very enjoyable.

JackMandarin (61) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Can from Cornelius. Pous pale. Head fades quickly. Good amount of lacing. Aroma is not as full-on as I was expecting. Zesty orange. Bit herbal. Almost minty. Spice at the end. Medium to full mouthfeel. Creamy. A good whack of bitterness blasting thru. Dryish then sweetish then more dryish. Mouth-coating finish. My first beer from Firestone Walker. I’m suitably impressed. I’m really looking forward to my Double Jack now!!

Pours dark orange with huge head consisting of a diversity of diffrent bubble Typs. Nose is cery floral pineapple and citrus fruits. American hops at its best. Drink is First a bit bitter but quickly the Aroma takes over. Lemon and fizzy carbonation. This is still one of my favourite IPAs...

BierMeHoos (328) - Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2015
On draft at Marriott Marquis Washington bar, DC. Appearance pours a dark golden color, rich in texture and color. Aroma is spicy pine, spruce, and citrus. Taste is floral hops and a booziness on the back end. Pineapple comes out, and honey and citrus. Palate is dry but sweet and boozy. Overall, a powerhouse and pretty much perfect.

Gut aber etwas unbalanciert -stark überragende Pinienharz note -Grapefruit,Pfirsich,Aprikose,Ananas noten -leiche Zitrus und orangennoten -leider leichte Klebstoffnote vom Simcoe Hopfen -gut carbonisiert -grapefruit,süß m. starker hopfenbitterkeit im abgang MMn nicht ganz so gut ausbalanciert wie andere IPAs.Sicher etwas für Freunde von "harzigen" IPAs.
