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.

22oz pour with a clear gold pour. Citrus aroma. Strong citrus grapefruit and orange taste.

Prufrockstar (2077) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Aroma is big spruce, citrus, grass, some caramel, bread. Clear amber orange with white head that dissipates to a ring. Irregular lacing. Strong hop bitterness through and through. Almost harsh. It figures that now that Im finally getting to rate this Im not picking up as much on the malty sweetness that usually holds it together from the bitter start to bitter end. I suppose thats the nature of this game, though -- snapshots in time. Medium body, average carbonation, long bitter finish. Overall: this is one of my go-to favorites, but it probably wouldnt be if this rating was my first time with the beer. I wonder how many other potential favorites I miss because of the circumstances under which we meet for the first time?

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Freebridge in Phillipsburg, NJ. Elegant aroma with flowery umbrella and citrus. Flavor a mix of orange and apple fruits with spicy herbal quality underneath. Aggressive malt tone in aftertaste with slight alcohol burn. I like how they mix the sweetness of the malts with sweet citrus hop tones. Very dry mouthfeel.

Decent double IPA, hoppy, sweet, stays on the palate. The hop flavor at the end is a little off putting

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours a nice amber orange color with an off white foamy head that lasts a decent while. Aroma is complex of citrus, pine, grapefruit, hops and mild orange. Flavor is initially bittersweet and bold malt and hop flavors with some pine as well. The finish is dry but hard to pick out if its bitter or sweet. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is decent. Overall this is a solid beer.

duke33 (69) - Eldersburg, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Very sweet and syrupy going down. It quickly is replaced by extremely bitter hops and a citrus bite. Not bad but not the best imperial IPA Ive had.

Shaney (2423) - Kln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2013
Das Aroma ist tropisch-fruchtig nach Ananas, Grapefruit, Passionsfrucht, nur etwas Citrus-Hopfen. Im Antrunk erstaunlich trocken. Der Hopfen bernimmt gleich das Kommando. Der ist fast berdimensioniert, aber neben der Herbe auch ausgleichend aromatisch. Der relativ hohe Alkoholgehalt ist zwar nicht zu leugnen, aber keinesfalls spritig. Soweit so gut. Zu kritisieren bleibt die mangelnde Sffigkeit, denn das Double IPA lsst sich nur nippend konsumieren. Der Malzkrper ist fr diese Hopfenstopfung einfach zu schmchtig geraten, sonst wre eine bessere Wertung zustande gekommen. "Normale" IPA haben fr mich daher ganz klar mehr zu bieten.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Bomber shared at GRMs. Clear deep golden with a thin white head. Strong pine, dust, dank, tropical fruit hops, strong grapefruit, a bit perfumed, black tea, lovely. Medium+body with reasonable effervescence. Strong fruitiness, decent pine/resin, strong, almost cloying honeyed malts, a fair bit of alcohol, perfumed, quite big, not entirely successful for me; sweet with strong bitterness and a long, perfumed, resinous, citrus finish.

Emeister84 (2380) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Aromas of juicy grapefruit, apricot, pine, and light caramel. Clear bronze, off-white head, low retention. Bitter, strong with boozy tones, lightly sweet, very balanced. Full bodied and chewy, moderate carbonation, flavors fade quickly but leave a long, bitter but clean finish.
