Imbibed on tap at Good Karma, 10/10/12.

Golden copper in appearance, clear with a metallic shine. A thin white head laces well when poured correctly. The hop aroma is strong with this one. Equal citrus and pine with some dankness. I can't really pick out different citrus because the pine is so strong. Golden biscuit and coppery malt lie underneath as a strong base. Biscuit carries to the taste, which turns bitter quick. A metallic taste is prevalent along with a flash of malty sweetness with grapefruit before going full on back of the tongue bitter. Earthiness and a tingly tongue signal the high IBUs in this one. The feel is acidic, but not annoyingly so. The finish is, you guessed it, dry. The lighter side of the hops show up in the burp, which is floral, kinda sweet.

Double Jack packs a punch. It's in your face, but it's not over the line and is still quite palatable. Makes you sit back a bit after a gulp, but the sweetness pulls it back enough to make it less of a sipping beer. One of the best DIPAs for sure.
