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 and…yipes! I just can’t get the impression of cat whizz out of my nose. Tha’ss 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 you’ve 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?

21-10-17 // bottle from Getränke Stumpf. Malty hoppy nose. Sweet malty body, resin, some alcholic notes. Fruity bitterness fading away. Solid DIPA.

Double Jack IPA is one of my favorite Imperial IPAs. Nice big malty middle to hide the high alcohol and hop bitterness. Beautiful tangerine, grapefruit and juicy fruit aroma Another excellent offering from Firestone Walker!

Hoppy, tasty, citrusy, good beer. But my father did not like it so much. It is not boozy, its for summer! I think there is not big difference between this stuff and european made IPA. A little bit overrated ?

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 A golden yellow with a white head. Aroma is citrusy and piney. Taste is very hoppy citrusy, lemon, orange and tropical fruits. Very dry. A masterpiece

650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours golden with a beige head and good lacing. Smelled odd at first (fish I thought) but after a bit I picked up predominantly grapefruit. Taste is heavy malt and pine with a nice bitter finish. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It’s a Powerful Ale! Aroma is boozy along with tropical fruits and an earthy musty characteristic, golden in colour with a lasting cap head, flavours of toasted malts, hoppy tropical fruits and citrus and a bitter pepper aftertaste, has a slick full bodied mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 Stored bottle from Mai 2015 drank at 22.6.17 so be aware that the description could be misleading if you compare it to a fresh bottle. Off-white creamy average sized rather quick disappearing head. Beer is slightly murky and amber, copper golden in color. Aroma is intense, lots of hop, pine, exotic, fresh, orange and a bit of cinnamon. Taste is full and heavy after sweet roasted malt, caramel and a ton of bitter hops. Finish is intense and long, I say even very long. On the tongue is a continues fight between bitter and sweet, while the sweet is trying the bitter is dominating every round. Texture is creamy, Caribana is soft. For my personal taste I must admit this style of beer is not my favorite. It?s a tad to bitter and too intense. Anyway it?s a perfect example of this style and deserves the high rating.

12oz bottle purchased at Sheffield’s and consumed in a tulip glass. Picture perfect color...hazy deep orange with a hint of amber. Assertive white head. Aroma is orange hard candy and tropical fruit. Taste is an extremely well balanced with maybe a slight lean on the sweeter side. Tropical fruit carries through. Malty undertones play a significant part as well. Alcohol presence is apparent but used quite effectively. This is a spot on version of a malt forward double IPA. Delicious.

Taste: woody, spiced resin notes with tropical hops. Dry hopped and slightly boozy nose. Orange/Amber color, mostly clear, with foamy white head and ringed lattice. Medium/full body. Dry it is.
