4.58/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
(A ) Very little head/carbonation that quickly fades. Good lacing. Color is a bright and light Orange. Very clear, no haze whatsoever.
(S) Lots of floral and citrus! Very, very nice.
(T) Floral and citrus are there and the bitterness comes out balanced well by a nice malt sweetness. I can def taste some of the 9+% alcohol in this one but its not overwhelming by any means. Pretty balanced. One of the best IIPA's Ive had.
(M) Body is heavier then I thought from the appearance. Very sooth and easy to drink. Nothing to complain about here!
Overall its a really good IIPA. As far as CA IIPA's go, Id say this the best one thats pretty easily available in bottles. I would love to have this fresh on tap some day!

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!
