Pours a clear gold color with a small white head that hangs around for a little while and leaves nice lacing.

Strong bursts of citrus come out in the aroma. Lemon and grapefruit are prominent upfront. There are also lighter hints of mango and pineapple that show up in the back.

Taste starts out with notes of lemon, mango and pineapple upfront, then shifts to a more piny flavor before coming back to lemony notes that linger into the finish.

Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable DIPA, very flavorful with only the slightest touch of alcohol being felt.

I was going to save this brew for a special occasion but when I found out it was National IPA Day -- what's better than celebrating with a Double Jack? I have never had this before and I thought it was quite fitting.

While pouring it into my glass, I was thinking, this is going to be a darker Double IPA, right? It turns out, it's a light golden straw color. A lot of tiny bubbles moving at a medium pace. A white head fizzles out to a bubbly film.

When I cracked the bottle open, the words HOLY SHIT, were muttered. The aroma, so fresh smelling coming from the bottle. While in the glass, I smell amazing piney, citrus and dark fruits -- I'm thinking grapes. A little bit of bread mixing with some caramel.

Pineapple, citrus, grapes, sweetness right away, some bread, caramel in the background, finishing up with bitterness but a lingering sweet flavor sticks around. Alcohol is evident but doesn't disrupt or sidetrack the main flavors. As it warms, some spiciness pokes through.

Medium body, noticeable carbonation -- slightly prickly, still a sweet dry feeling in the mouth. Very easy going down for a 9.5 abv.

Sweet, bitter, tasty, complex, very easy to go down. Thank goodness I don't have a growler of this or I'd be toasted; it would be all gone in my first sitting. Wait, would that be a bad thing? This screams -- I'm a Double IPA -- with the first sip! Alcohol is hidden very well. This is a very nice brew to celebrate National IPA Day!
