Deep amber with a little foam head on top. Leaves a small amount of lacing behind.
Smells of citrusy (orange and grapefruit) and grassy hops. Big aroma. This is remarkable. The citrus comes across first, and in an undeniable way; followed by the grasses.
Taste follows the aroma with a subtle malt backbone - caramel notes are present. But really, the hops take the show.
Medium-body carries the flavor appropriately. Malt and carbonation are balanced quite well.
This is a great beer. Don't pass up an opportunity to taste this.
Serving type: on-tap

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!
