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.

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 (2417) - 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.

Linnet (1807) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2013
Ar: Burst of tropical fruits, pineapple, citric, resinous, grapefruit, mango, passionfruit, some perfume and maltiness under all the lovely hop notes, Ap: Amber colour, extremely creamy beige head, lots of lacing. T: big bite but also lots and lots of malts to balance it, lovely retro nasal action of tropical fruits, Behind the grapefruity resinous first onslaught. Long lingering bitterness, paired with a warming finish. P: soft carbonation, full body. T: very nice indeed, Only downside is That for My particular taste the thick maltbase somewhat subdues the hops.

Beautiful double IPA. Hits all the right notes. Nice bouquet. Deep orange color. Hoppy, citrus flavor while not being crazy bitter. Perhaps a standard bearer for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
The beer pours a deep copper color with an strong white head. The citrus aroma of grapefruit is noticeable as soon as the cap comes off the bottle. The flavor is full-bodied and rich in citrus fruit mixed with pine resin. The sweet malt comes through at the end. The mouthfeel is thick with a clean finish. An excellent and flavorful libation.

Ataraxia (525) - California, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Golden pour with a white head. Complex blend of grapefruit, mango, peach, and orange fruits. Bread malt, pine resin, and grass are also present. Spicy, sweet, and crisp, though a bit too highly carbonated. Bitterness of the hops mixes with the alcohol and dominates the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Spicy aroma with a hint of citrus. Perfect mouth feel; harsh, almost abrupt finish.

Garvinil (4) - DeKalb, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2012 does not count
The best imperial IPA I have had to date. The color is a little misleading, due to the pale amber hue. One might expect a darker more ominous shade. The taste is surprisingly complex and yet subtle. One taste and I was singing it's praises. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
