look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Sweet yet spicey. Citrus and pines. Good balance. Yellow to brown blouse when held up to a window. Very fine carbonation. The lacing on the glass is unique - doesn't fall off but also not webbed. Nose is orange and pine sap. Some malt syrup is present via the pine sap. Taste is sweet at first with a grade A maple syrup and the. Quickly spices with the hops.

Serving type: on-tap

4.19/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

The body appears crystal clear with a deep copper tone, the head is thick, fluffy, and white. Pine and lemon aroma wafts from the glass top with twinges of biscuit and caramel malt notes. Subdued malt sweetness with a bold hop bitterness show up throughout the taste; mild cereal and honey-like sweetness. Medium-heavy body with a crisp, tingly mouthfeel; dry finish.

A very nice, well-rounded DIPA. Bold and assertive IPA aroma, taste, and feel without sacrificing balance. High ABV is well-masked with the grain and hop ingredients. Very enjoyable.

4.23/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - cloudy, golden honey color. Amber hues as well. No real head to speak of.

N - sweet oranges, grapefruit & malts

M - perfectly creamy but not to heavy. Light carbonation

T - begins with your fruity orange favors and moved into the sweet malty backbone, almost no alcohol taste to be found

O - my favorite aspect of this brew was the mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and definitely enjoyable.

4.71/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: Honey/light orange with a nice white head.

S: Hops, tropical fruit, alcohol, slight carmel malt. The smell lights up immediately, the way a good West Coast IPA is supposed to!

T: Heavenly. Apricots, honey, and tangerine on the front, hoppy dryness and malt sweetness on the back. This is a nearly perfect DIPA, right up there with some of the best. My top 3 West Coast IPAs are Sculpin, Alesmith IPA, and Pliny. This is in this mix.

M: Silky and perfectly carbonated. Some DIPA take on an overly heavy thickness, Double Jack gets it perfect.

O: This is a gem in this category! One of my favorite DIPA/West Coast IPAs for sure. Surprisingly drinkable for the heavy ABV. Get this beer!
