ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Reviewed 2/11/13. Bottle says 8.5%. 12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a very hazy golden copper color. The head is a nice three finger cream color featuring excellent lacing down the glass. Retention is only decent, however. S: Quite grapefruit forward, with an underlying touch of peppery, herbal pine. The malt profile seems to be the standard-issue crystal malts, coming across as somewhat biscuity. The general aroma is very good, if not as vivid as I hoped/expected. T: The grapefruit character comes across more expressively in the flavor. It starts off with a combination of citrusy hops and biscuity malt/yeast. The finish is pleasantly malty; the subtle grapefruit mingles with the toffee and marzipan qualities, with touches of black pepper and pine appearing. Again, like its little brother, it has a surprising amount of complexity while it maintains a level of balance; some sips will be citrusy, others will be piny, and some will even be tropical. After downing a second one, it becomes very melon-like in its hop character...perhaps a sign of the Citra hops coming through. Im upping the score here - Im on my second one and I almost feel like killing a third bottle. Its just superb, yet in a subtle manner. M: The finish starts off pleasantly clean and dry, before a budding aftertaste of hop nectar and malt sweetness builds and lingers on the aftertaste. General texture is on the heavier side of medium - and yet, in spite of all the things conspiring to make it a difficult drink, its quite easy to down. O: This is what FW Double Jack should have been - the reason I single out that one is because the flavor profile here is very reminiscent of the hyped DIPA in terms of its malty, orange/grapefruit forward nature; only its more balanced, less boozy, not as sweet, and more complex. Or maybe this 4 pack is just fresher than the bottle of Double Jack I had. All I know is A) Ill be coming back to this one at a somewhat frequent rate, and B) its about damn time MD starts producing a DIPA thats both top notch and well-priced.

glennmastrange (2744) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with date and toffee in the background. Head is average size, frothy, off-white with excellent lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy, dark amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a soft to lively carbonation and a moderately astringent finish. Definitely one of the heavier weighted and thicker varieties of DIPAs. A slow sipper for sure.

Pours a very hazy amber - looks like it is unfiltered, lots of stuff floating around. Nose is tropical fruit and citrus. Taste of grapefruit and some bitter hops. Definitely tastes better than it looks! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
