3.85/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22oz bottle, poured judiciously into a tulip. Had a sampler of this once at the brewery, but this will be the first full serving.

A: A perfectly golden beauty to behold. Lacing and tears from the slowly receding white head and liquid body cling to the glass interior. Double Jack could have fooled me as it has the look of a nice pilsner!

S: Good if not spectacular hop aromas waft on upwards. Citrus and tropical fruits dominate with some petrol/pine thrown into the mix. Cs and Simcoe...

T: As it warms up a little, I'm beginning to enjoy it more. It immediately reminded me of another DIPA in terms of taste...I believe it's Green Flash's Imperial IPA. A side by side is required. As it is, this is certainly a hoppy brew but the malt is strong with this one. It doesn't remind me of 90 Minute IPA whatsoever, but it is almost equally malty.

M: Very smooth and full-bodied. The carbonation is exemplary and the aftertaste marked by the dry hopping.

D: This is most quaffable, though it is on the sweeter side. And trust me, I do not like sweet beers. The initial sweetness is tempered by the hop profile as the beer warms a little.

Not what I expected - or should I say hoped for, since I expected something like this after those who created and believe their own hype felt disappointed. Still, I enjoyed Double Jack and it does nothing to alter my love for Firestone Walker.
