COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Jack IPA is our first ever Imperial IPA. It features a big malty middle to cloak the high alcohol and mouth puckering hop bitterness. Huge tangerine, grapefruit and juicy fruit aroma blossom over the herbal blue basil and malt earthiness of this aggressive beer. Best enjoyed in moderation.

Zlotta (2402) - Hagen, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2016
0.65 l bottle from ’EDEKA Preller’ (Breckerfeld), bottled in April 2016. Clear, orangeish amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, dank, very fruity and moderately resiny aroma of orange, mango, passion fruit, honeyish malts and some pine. Sweetish, already slightly bitter, juicy, fruity and slightly resiny taste of orange jam, apricot, some mango, honey and pine, followed by a medium long, rather dry-bitter, resiny finish. Full body, creamy, almost oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Great stuff!

pintbypint (3352) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
650ml brown bottle. Golden colour, lightly hazy. Holds a strong white head, lots of sticky lace in the glass. Nose - a little sweetness with a mix of citrus peels. Taste - a little fruitiness, some malt sweetness, mandarin, grapefruit, tropical notes. Finish has some sweetness and tropical fruit and citrus. Smooth mouth feel and medium bodied. big, still balanced and an exceptional example of the style. This is a beer I will be revisiting many times.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2016
- bernstein-farben mit guter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Citrusfrüchten aller Art, Honig, Karamell, etwas Minze und Kokos, Vanille, Rosinen und eine Idee Kiefernadeln - absolut harmonische und zurückhaltende Carbonisierung - durch die vorbildliche Carbonisierung erzeugt der Antrunk sofort ein wunderbar, ölig-samtenes Mundgefühl - der Alkohol ist bemerkenswert versteckt und macht sich zu keiner Zeit bemerkbar - das Malzbett umschließt zu jeder Zeit umschmeichelnd die Hopfenbitternis - natürlich ist es ein Double IPA und die Hopfenbitternis bildet den Stamm des Geschmacks, aber alle beschriebenen Noten bilden das perfekte Gerüst - vom Mittelteil bis zum Abgang zeigt das Bier eine unnachahmliche Verbindung aller Aromen welche ein Bier dieses Typs hervorbringen kann Fazit: Perfektes Double IPA

MelvinKalksma (1115) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, honey, orange, pine, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Hazy golden/amber beer with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, honey, orange and pine; ends slightly/medium bitter and dry with with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could have been intenser. Shame that this beer is filtered, that hurts the appearance a lot. Taste and palate are great however, so that makes this beer great nonetheless.

ok, so yea this beer is just bonkers. so good that im down to my last 2 sips forgoing the words till now so i’ll pull a ’fest review on an amount of beer that will evaporate quicker than one can properly review. stupid good everywhere - tropics papaya, melon, pine, grapefreuit, orangly things, marmalade, caramel and bisctui. Very cool spice from the get go. will actually rereview even at the totally retarded 13$ price tag. That revisitation will go against fat tug for the reason to see how good FT is vs this on a price point.

Beerclubsa (121) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a very clear golden with an tightly packed, off white head that retains about 1/2 cm. Aromas of pine resin, citrus, some spice, bready malt. Palate is medium-high carbonation, medium-light body. Flavour of sweet malt, fruity hops and a balanced bitter finish that lingers. So balanced and drinkable for 9.5% it’s scary.

JPDIPSO (5799) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Deep golden color with a taller, lasting, light beige head. Huge pine and citrus aromas. Hints of sweet malt and caramel in the background. A pure hopshead scent that I can not find much fault in. Flavors are of a strong IIPA, with sweet pale malt in the front, some pine and citrus (especially zest) in the middle and a slow return of caramel in the finish and a fairly sharp stingy linger. I find myself going back and forth with this one. Balanced, yet not quite stable. Traditional, yet over the top hops at times. Very good, but not quite great. 12/10

EsGils (7) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016 does not count
I tend to find many of these American Double IPAs quite imbalanced, with the alcohol taking too strong a hold of the beer. This one however just about gets it right. Golden orange colour and a fantastic fresh fruity smell. The taste doesn’t disappoint, as a well made brew lets the high alcohol through without being overawed. Well done.
