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

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

22oz bomber. Worst dipa ive uet to have. Thought it was a steal.at five bucks, nope. Bland hop appeal, no strong malt convergance, this sucks. Abv doest help either. 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 (2011) - 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 (10518) - 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.

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 (4164) - Snohomish, 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 (199) - Nevada, USA - 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.

Bottle as Trader Joe’s Boatswain DIPA. Clear pale amber color, medium white head. Aroma of stale straw. Taste is similar.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2012
This stuff was pretty bad. Bought at Trader Joe’s for $1.99, labeled Boatswain Double IPA. This smells and tastes nothing like a DIPA. At best, it is a very lackluster amber ale. The price is good, the taste is not. My drain got the second half of a 22oz bottle.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Pours cloudy medium amber with a fleeting white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Sweet almost syrupy, some alcohol. The hops are drowned out by the sweet mess going on here. Trader Joe’s "Boatswain Double IPA.
