COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The grand daddy of them all, Imperial Jack - robust, malty and heavily hopped. Who said "jackrabbits" don’t bite?.

This doesn’t come off as a Double IPA, or even a regular IPA. It’s just a semi-decent pale ale. Nothing to write home about.

I like it, not really a double ipa, but I still enjoyed it. Aroma and flavour are both big on malt profile, with very little hops showing up anywhere.

fiulijn (16187) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle from Trader Joe’s, Bellingham, WA, as Boatswain Double IPA, 8% ABV
Hazy amber color, medium sized head. Light aroma of cereals. Some malt and caramel flavor, correct body strength, minimal residual sweetness, some vegetables, quite strong bitterness.
Not much quality traits here.

(as Boatswain DIPA from Trader Joe’s) amber with off white head and some lace. Aroma of caramel malt and some hops. Flavor is sweet malt, some citrus hops, a hint of alcohol.

Bottle. Two bucks. Cant pass up the tick at that price. Loads of caramel malt and some sweet, citrus hops. Not very good.

robforbes (2083) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2013
picked up at trader Joe’s as a boatswain double IPA. pours a clear copper-amber with a small off-white head and good lacing. smell is of orange, hops, citrus, and some malt. taste is of hops, citrus, caramel, and some grapefruit. ends a little bitter. overall not as bad as most raters say, think that they are just upset that it is a contract beer from trader Joe’s, yet i would not call it a double IPA.

Cybercat (3877) - Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Aroma is fairly strong and hoppy, with a hint of sour citrus, but not remarkable. It pours a clear amber with a so-so pale head that doesn’t last too long. Flavor is hoppy, a little bitter, just slightly fruity, barely says it’s an IPA - let alone a double IPA. Texture is smooth and firm, none too fizzy, though it leaves a hoppy and woody finish and a persistent tingle on the lips. Fair to middlin’ and leanin’ towards fair. Give it a try anyway.

Patrickctenchi (4604) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Pours cloudy, amber-orange with a short, yellowish-white head. Aroma of scotch tape...juniper? maybe? Taste is extra-sweet caramel/toffee. Barely prceptible hops...just a slight boozy bitter. Not good.

Another Minhas bucket of pig slop that doesn’t know what the fuck to call itself. Mine was labeled "Boatswain Double IPA" and allegedly only sold at Traitor Joes! No, I did not spell Trader wrong, dickhead!!!!!!! Pour is light orange with an off white head that dies as soon as it can. Super grainy nose with corn in the face punch. Not as hopped up as much as the other "Boatswain" bullshit label Minhas is trying to hide behind. 8.4% alcohol is not detected by any burn. Aftertaste is pleasantly bitter. Could be worse, but could be better. Borders on sucky!

Pours very hazy auburn with a thick creamy head. Taste is malty with sour hops. Creamy finish which is not right for a Double IPA.
