L: Bright, clear, gold with a good white head on top. Excellent lacings.
A: Grapefruit, peach, berry, and pine resin hops, clean candylike malt, and some alcohol as well. Very soft and delicate aroma for such a potent beer.
T/M: Smooth bitterness upfront, moves into a big citrus, peach, and piney hops. Hops linger through, and the bitterness increases toward the middle. All the intensity is balanced out by a full body of clean, bready malt with a touch of caramel sweetness. The beer finishes dry and hops linger through.
Overall, Firestone Walker makes some seriously good hoppy beers, and this is no exception. Perfect balance for the style, a full bodied beer, but no sweetness to take away the drinkability.

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!
