4.31/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Bottled on 12-20-13 and drank on 3-2-2014
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass
A - very translucent gold. Not much head that turns into a thin lace very quickly. It looks good but nothing to write home about.
S- Pine and resin hit the nose hard on this one. Hint of lemon and sweet pineapple. There's a very prominent "thick" sugary smell with it as well.
T - sweet malt and sugar hit first followed by a piney bitterness that sits in the depth of your tongue for a while. There are also hints of lemon and other citrus fruits. However, the most prominent taste in this beer are sweet malt and piney resin. Very good though.
M - lightly carbonated with a bitter after finish. goes down smooth and fills your cheeks with sweetness.
O - very delicious, a sweet malty pine with a resiny aftertaste. A well crafted beer that really brings the definition of a good IPA to life. Highly recommended.

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!
