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.

Draft snifter at Bavarian Lodge, $6. Oooh, fresh Amarillo hops for sure from the first whiff. Thin, clingy white head andyipes! I just cant get the impression of cat whizz out of my nose. Thass one big hoppy beer. Really clear copper-amber color, which I suggest is their Union system at work. The first sip brings in syrupy malts, not sticky, but bright, with some impressions of iced tea. Hops are still nearly bringing tears to my eyes, so youve got to really be a hop-head to enjoy this one. Coats the tongue with both malt and bitterness, yet the total mouthfeel is a little lighter than, say a Hopslam. Still delivers on that big hippity hop hop. A smack in the face with a bale of wet hops. Did I mention this was hoppy?

Bitter resin with slight hints of lemon. Full-bodied and creamy. Always solid.

Trbes Bernstein mit sehr guter Schaumkrone. Herrlicher Duft. Super fruchtiger Krper mit harmonischer Hopfenbittere. Der Alkohol wird gekonnt versteckt!

9.5%ABV. Double IPA. Poured out light amber. 12SRM. Nose is pine and spicy with cilantro and scallion. Sweet nose suggesting nice clean malty body that is full bodied and syrupy. It gets me in the mood to taste some big hop flavor. Mouthfeel is syrupy and soapy. Palate is malted candy, corn syrup. hops are pine, pine sap, citrus peel, citrus oil. Finish is medium with a lingering citrus oil flavor. Overall, one of those sweet malt, dry hopped affairs for me. I dont hate it, but my palate at the time of this review wants to have more bready heft which means more body, this sweet has not much body which means you get a 2 track tasting, big hops and big sweet malt and nothing to fill the void in between.

Clean and refined bright copper color with an eggshell colored head of soapy white foam. Caramelized grapfruit character throughout with a tangy orange and reserved pine dryness in the finish.

Bottle from Blackfriars. Outstanding. Chewy, pineapple and pine and lovely lingering hops and resin. Big orange smell, enticing deep orange colour. Absolutely one of the best Imperial IPAs Ive tried.

tfontana (932) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle pour from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear amber with tons of sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with good retention and lots of sudsy lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus and dank, resinous hops. Taste is strong bitter dank resin with tropical fruits, citrus and late bready, biscuity malt base. Palate is light-bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and bitter over sweet finish. Overall, as advertised, this excels all around. That said, many have emulated this so it is not as unique as it may have once been. Maybe thats enough reason to retire it? A little too bitter dominant for me.

Spab (3726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
650 ml bottle from Canada Craft Club. Pours a clear golden orange with moderate-sized white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, sweet caramel, candy sugar and biscuit. Flavour is big on sweet caramel maltiness, some biscuit, grapefruit, tangerine, light pine and some candy sugar. Fine carbonation. Nice.

Thanks to Canada Craft Club. Les premires notes de son olfactif sont assez maltes, avec du biscuit type Social Tea. Perception lgre de fruits tropicaux et dorange. Gazon en toile de fond. Mais son profil malt est trs en vidence. Limpidit du liquide. Couleur ambre / cuivre. norme mousse persistante et rocailleuse qui colle trs bien au verre. Entre de bouche avec des fruits tropicaux et une chaleur dalcool. Les notes sont dorange, de mangue, de pamplemousse, de gazon, de biscuit, de rsine en finale. En gnral cette bire est dlicieuse, sauf que son profil malt et sucr la dsavantage du cot technique. Jaurais prfr une amertume plus prononce. Elle aurait pu tre une grande bire.

IslandHaole (1250) - Misawa, JAPAN - FEB 6, 2017
Thank you Misawa AB AAFES Shopette! Orange hued clear with creamy short lived head. Nice pine resin hops with rich malty backbone. Chewy malt, lip-smackingly sweet with intense hops, citrus, floral.....wow, this packs tons of flavor into a 12 oz bottle! Very well balanced, thick body, what more could you ask for? This is a damned good beer!

Pours golden color, haze with foamy white head. Aroma: intense hop notes, which takes on citruses, especially grapefruit, hint of ranferine, pine...flavor is similar, with intense hop profile, which takes on fruits mentioned above, supported with biscuit & toffee like malt backbone. Hop bitterness is very high but still perfectly balanced with malt backbone. Finish is dry, bitter, bitterness lingers in aftertaste. Body is medium, texture is smooth, carbonation is medium.
