4.3/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
From a 2.5 pint bomber by the time it got to my tongue.
Lots & lots of raw rubber intense pine grapefruit on the nose this has an orangy golden colour. Not big head, maybe a quarter inch at most, but the head is very glossy. In the mouth there is some sap and malt, maybe a touch of silk too, but certainly matter than I expected. Some passing hints of malt in the background but totally surrounded by all those hops and stuffing. So so much stuffed in here but it remains a really begging linear harmonious whole. A powerful intense beer that goes the distance .
Serving type: on-tap

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!
