650ml bomber. Poured into a Dogfish snifter. No freshness date but I suspect this bottle has been sitting around for awhile.
Appearance: Pour a glowing orange/copper color with a one finger creamy white head. Retention is long and leaves long legs all over. Beautiful.
Aroma: Piney and resiny hops. Also lots of grapefruit hops. And some caramel malty sweetness in the background.
Taste: Slight pine up front. I'm getting mostly grapefruit-y and tropical hops. Sweeter caramel malt backbone is a bit bold. But again, I think this could be due to this beer sitting awhile. Little bit of heat as it warms
Mouthfeel: Thick, fuller side of side of medium. Low carbonation. Bitter finish. Pretty much all is expected for the style.
Serving type: bottle

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!
