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

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2012
650 ml bottle from Trader Joes. IBU = 75 / O.G. = 17.15 Deep amber color with a small and short-lived head, leaving almost no lacing. The aroma has a metallic off odor and is too boozy. There is a moderate amount of earthy hop aroma and flavor, but a rather poor quality aroma compared to better IPAs. Medium body but lightly astringent. O: drinkable and inexpensive, but disappointing and not recommended.

johnnnniee (2446) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a decent sized white head with moderate retention. The aroma is quite malty for a double IPA, toffee and caramel with a bit of earthy spicy hops. Wow yeah the flavor holds the same lack of hops that the aroma did. Sweet toffee and sugary malt with a bit of earth and spice and nothing really nice. Medi8um body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Honestly where are the hops? Not a bad beer, just bland and too sweet for the style.

Bronzan (126) - Windsor, California, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Picked up at Trader Joe’s. Saw cheap price and a label I didn’t know... yes, this one was my fault. Pretty awful. Pours a deep copper with plenty of bubbles. Nothing much to speak of, really. For all the visible carbonation, it’s kind of flat tasting. No real hop flavor. Disappointing, but hey, you win some, you lose some.

thegreenrooster (3298) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Pour is a copper with a average white head. Aroma is some syurpy malts but there is an ever so faint whiff of hops. Flavor is heavy malts with some cooked cabbage and lots of alcohol. This was not good. When at TJ’s just stick with the TJ’s named beers and put back the beers they bought, probably b/c they were old, and repackaged with their own label. $1.99

Aroma os sour melon, color is burnt orange. Blah. This jack is not good. Its like bad cough syrup, hurys the stomach and makes one shit. This is not right. Dont buy this beet, im going to give it to the worms outside or thr jerk next store.

Trev (1960) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Muddy amber. Medium soapy head. Aroma is oranges and caramel. Flavour is caramel, light citrus hop. Cardboard and vegetal tones. Muddy flavours. Not unpleasant though a bit muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Bomber, Boatswain Label, from Trader Joe’s Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral, herbal hops and cracker malts. The taste is big caramel malts with citrus and herbal hops. Medium bodied. Overly sweet with not enough bitterness for a DIPA. Meh.

haddon90 (1490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a decent white head. Not much of an aroma but some hops and tartness. Nice hoppy taste. Some grapefruit and tartness. But still light for a DIPA.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color (with just a hint of red) and a moderate white head. Not a lot of smell on this can’t really speak to it. A little bitter, but not overly hoppy in the taste. And odd beer.

penstemon (127) - - NOV 12, 2012
Pours a murky amber with off-white head. Aromas of white grape juice (?), alcohol, and cooked grain. Taste is sweet, bready, slightly vegetal. This beer is really confused about what it wants to be. Hop presence almost non-existent which is kind of a problem for a DIPA. Not good but I did manage to finish the whole 22 oz.
