I had this on tap at Brat Haus is Scottsdale with "C". It was served in a snifter.
A: A golden, orange color with a beautiful white, creamy head that lasts along time. There was a fairly good amount of lacing.
S: Smells floral and citrusy and very aromatic. I could smell it a foot away from my nose. Ruby red grapefruit and tangerine and something tropical like mango-pineapple is all very interesting.
T: Despite the high alcohol content, there is no taste of alcohol. It is just delicious and tasty. I taste citrus, a pine bitterness, and something tropical like papaya and mango and pineapple. This is not in-your-face "hopness" but balance and wonderful. (Not that hops are not wonderful).
M: Medium to heavier bodied and medium carbonated.
O: I really like this beer. I recommend it and it wasn't for the high alcohol; I would have it frequently. That being said, it is very drinkable and it left me wanting more.
Serving type: on-tap

Grabbed a bomber of Double Jack at Wegmans for less than $8.50. Okay, it was $8.49 (pre-tax), but I thought that was reasonable for a DIPA with a lion and a bear fighting on the label. I love the bottled-on info (5/22/2014) -- even the time (9:14)?!?!
Appearance: crystal clear copper. Three finger head that leaves a thick, white lacing.
Smell: big grapefruit notes with a subtle touch of pine.
Taste: in a word---complex. Starts off with citrus, but quickly becomes more pine/bitter. After about half a glass, the citrus pulls ahead again! Finishes with a gentle malt sweetness; nice!
Mouthfeel: really palatable for a DIPA (i.e. not heavy at all).
Drinkability: watch yourself. At 9.5% A.B.V, this DIPA could outmatch your desire for continued consumption.
Based on DoubleJack, I'll definitely try Union Jack now. Thanks Firestone!
Serving type: bottle
