22 oz. bottle: Pours a copperish-orange with a medium off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Citrus aroma has a tangerine presence with hints of grapefruit and pine. Sweet malty flavor is hoppy with a pine presence and a spicy mouthfeel in the mild dry bitterness of the finish. Well balanced and delicious!

22 oz. Bottle from Baltimore. What a great DIPA! Biting pine hop scent with a candied grapefruit undercurrent, the perfect mix. Hazy copper pour with a thick, foamy off-white head. Medium body, slight sticky feel, but mostly a silky texture. The taste kicked off with the candied grapefruit, great sweetness, to a bitter pine hop and back to sweet malt for the finish. Wow.

Bottle shared with (and courtasy of) The Bergen tasting crew, and Gunnar. Pours a golden light amber colour with a medium white head. Herbal aroma with nice hops, apricot, pine and some citrus. Sweet flavours og hops, apricot, sweet berries and some candy. Has an incredibly soft and nice mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. A well-balanced, sweet and great DIPA. brian60625 (756) - Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Resin blasts and lemongrass. Dark yellow appearance with clearly delineated streams of bubbles floating up. An island of foam in the middle of the surface, surrounded with heavy amounts of lacing on the glass. Strong hop flavors jump out and yet the aroma is very mild, grapefruit. 9.5% alcohol is practically undetectable, adding to its drinkability. Light bodied. Double Jack is a tonguebomb that’s nice about it. fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012

Hazy deep blond color; medium sized head. The aroma is piney and resiny. Good toffee flavor, leaner than expected, and without the annoying crystal malt; very moderate residual sweetness; very strong hopping, resiny and piney; long final.
Excellent, mostly because it’s more easy to drink than most beers in the same style.
Pours a clear dark orange, with minimal head. Aromas & flavors of hops, citrus, grapefruit, tangerine. Sour, bitter aftertaste. gunnar (9924) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
Shared bottle at BBGTC tasting. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of oranges and grapefruit, fruity, catpiss light,berries, all in all quite pleasant and inviting aroma. Taste is strong and heavy grapefruit and pine, green hops. Very dry and bitter, ends even more drier, good one.

The high alcohol content creates a perfect bed for the rich malt to meld with the piny hops. Fantastic beer with excellent not over carbonated mouth feel. drcboehm (104) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2012
