Had this (along with other dipa's) at a East VS. West Dipa Head to Head Showdown I hosted on 8/27/13
Round 1 East - Captain lawrence CIIPA. West - Double Jack
Double jack I personally love and is one of maybe 3 beers I buy again and again because I'm always trying to drink new stuff. Its the beer I tell Dipa heads to buy and if it wasn't for heady would be my favorite Dipa overall. So delicious it is with perfect hop / alcohol / sweetness for my liking. For the round captain lawrence won the overall appearance and smell but trust me... Double Jack is the most underated beer you'll ever try.

Pours clear copper-amber with a head of bone white soft foam that fell gracefully to some really gorgeous lace. The entire inside of the glass is coated with fine white lace. Beautiful! Nose is tantalizing. Tropical fruits, tangerine, melon, doughy malt, nutty, grass and floral with a tad bit of spice in back. Alcohol doesn’t come to the nose at all. Smells clean and vibrant. You could describe the nose as glowing it’s so animated. Taste follows the nose. You are greeted with oily hop resins and bitter, those delicious fruits all juicy and some nutty flavor from the strong caramel malt that has more bread than you think. Finishes dry with good bitter, earth and dank.
This was one of the most artful west coast DIPA’s I’ve had. Everything in balance and playing off one another. Bitter like crazy but not offensive. Fruits were so juicy up against the alcohol dryness and hop bitter. Alcohol is a little bit on the palate but it belongs there. You are left with the sweet taste of pine like a gracious afterthought. Smooth, really smooth. Original, strapping, unconfined.
