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

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

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.

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.

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.

Not bad. Drinkable and not so bitter as I might have expected. Quite decent foam and regular features too.

Aroma caramel, roasty, Appearance: Red, Taste: Boring. Really can’t be bothered to type anything else. Some of the Minhas stuff is passable and some is awful. This falls under the latter. I had the Bad Hare Double IPA version

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.

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.
