On tap at BSP for their madcrazy 14th anniversary! From notes.
A. Clear brushed copper. Low head.
S. Dense citrus nose, some booze here, sweet malted grains, grapefruit, well rounded really, but overall heavy and stiff. Succulent... but gives fair warning about the hurt it can put on you.
T. Here we go! Full flavor all the way across the sky! Double Jack pulls no punches, you've got your orange-tangerine citrus bitters, sweet caramel malt, warming booze, some pine here and there - classic flavors. The bitterness is thankfully restrained; I'm tired of IBU-bombs. Nothing earth-moving, but this is very well balanced.
M / O: Medium-full body, middling carbonation, smooth really. Tasty for sure, but breaks no new ground - just an above average West Coast DIPA. Depending on when and where you have this I imagine it could run the spectrum from sublime to just good.
Serving type: on-tap
