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!
