COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The grand daddy of them all, Imperial Jack - robust, malty and heavily hopped. Who said "jackrabbits" donít bite?.

Aroma is malts, citrus and oddly perfumed. The flavor is citrus, kind of odd biscuit malts, toffee and a tangy finish.

barn0216 (537) - California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottled as Boatswain DIPA, found at Trader Joeís. Clear orange-copper color, nice bed of creamy foam, moderate lacing. Nose is a blend of grain, hay, and a touch of citrus. Flavor is much the same, with a dry bitter tone. This is completely unrecognizable as a DIPA. The good news is that it isnít entirely without merit. As a strong American pale ale or perhaps an oktoberfest beer, the brew is palatable. That is to say, it is no worse or better than common lagers. But those common lagers are a much better bang for the buck.

An odd palate for a double IPA. Clearly strong, but not as full-bodied or flavorful as most DIPAs. Smooth to drink, but also weak in flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Christpuncher (2694) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
Smells like an old style an tastes like an extremely hoppy old style. No real fruit flavor and has a big bite. Not what I would consider a double ipa. But for 2.99 a bomber, it's hard to complain ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle from Trader Joes. Horrible, not worth the $2.00 Pours clear copper with a two finger beige head and a faint citrus aroma. There is a grassy dry citrus flavor with slight malt bitterness. Watery mouthfeel and a bad aftertaste.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 7, 2013
22oz. bottle, as Boatswain Double IPA. Aroma of pineapple, banana, sugary sweetness and faint pine, some harsh alcohol and chemical notes present as well, like one would expect to come across in a malt liquor. Hazy light amber in color, head is fine, uneven and lasting. Flavor is similarly fruity, sweet and alcoholic with light caramel, some hop bitterness present but not well integrated and fails to provide any sort of balance or refreshing traits. Shows some fine, smooth carbonation and a certain slickness on the palate, body is medium-full. Quite industrial. Pretty far from what I would consider a good example of the style. If you just want to get lit up for $2/bottle, sure, but I recommend scrolling past.

thornecb (5403) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2013
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Tan head with little retention recedes leaving no lacing. Mild resin aromas. Sour tropical fruit and bready caramel front to back.

Somewhat mild double IPA. Selling this brand at THís, so itís easy on the pocketbook - if not very inspiring.

Arayaga2 (2099) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Clear headless gold. Aroma is a bit of burnt sulfur and not much else. Taste is the same, and it wouldnít be this unpleasant if I hadnít expected an IIPA. There is almost a gasoline note in the finish. $2.3/22oz

pretty unexciting double IPA. good hops, but masked by malts. Seems to fly in face of the way a double should be done.
