4.25/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle says 8.5%. 12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a very hazy golden copper color. The head is a nice three finger cream color featuring excellent lacing down the glass. Retention is only decent, however.

S: Quite grapefruit forward, with an underlying touch of peppery, herbal pine. The malt profile seems to be the standard-issue crystal malts, coming across as somewhat biscuity. The general aroma is very good, if not as vivid as I hoped/expected.

T: The grapefruit character comes across more expressively in the flavor. It starts off with a combination of citrusy hops and biscuity malt/yeast. The finish is pleasantly malty; the subtle grapefruit mingles with the toffee and marzipan qualities, with touches of black pepper and pine appearing. Again, like its little brother, it has a surprising amount of complexity while it maintains a level of balance; some sips will be citrusy, others will be piny, and some will even be tropical.

After downing a second one, it becomes very melon-like in its hop character...perhaps a sign of the Citra hops coming through. I'm upping the score here - I'm on my second one and I almost feel like killing a third bottle. It's just superb, yet in a subtle manner.

M: The finish starts off pleasantly clean and dry, before a budding aftertaste of hop nectar and malt sweetness builds and lingers on the aftertaste. General texture is on the heavier side of medium - and yet, in spite of all the things conspiring to make it a difficult drink, it's quite easy to down.

O: This is what FW Double Jack should have been - the reason I single out that one is because the flavor profile here is very reminiscent of the hyped DIPA in terms of its malty, orange/grapefruit forward nature; only it's more balanced, less boozy, not as sweet, and more complex. Or maybe this 4 pack is just fresher than the bottle of Double Jack I had. All I know is A) I'll be coming back to this one at a somewhat frequent rate, and B) it's about damn time MD starts producing a DIPA that's both top notch and well-priced.

Recommended by an employee at the Craft Beer Outlet in Philadelphia as an exceptional DIPA.

a: Copper with a finger thick tan head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Strong citrus

t: Citrus and pine hops over a mild malt base. Bitterness builds on the tongue.

m; Medium with good body.

o: A superior DIPA with plenty of hop flavors.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at AndrewK's tasting.

Bottled 3/2013.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, cardboard, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with honey, cardboard, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is definitely past its prime but still drinkable and not really all that bad.
