12 ounce bottle poured into a Lost Abbey Teku glass. Bottled 8/13/2012
(~2.5 months old).

A: Pours a hazy golden-orange hue with a thick white head on top.

S: Great big nose of grapefruit, mango/pineapple, and pine.

T: Big, bold, and bitter-sweet. The mango/pineapple is more present on the tongue than in the nose, arriving early and staying to the end. Malt sweetness accompanies it up front. Grapefruit flavors arrive in force towards the middle. Big bold bitter flavors of pine at the end, perhaps at a slightly lower volume than optimal. I wonder if the bitterness was a bit more thunderous a month or so ago...?

M: Surprisingly light and refreshing for a 9.5% monster. Not as dry on the finish as I would have thought, either.

D/O: All day every day. Love this beer.

Firestone Walker Double Jack: Pretty fine double IPA. Got this as a birthday present, and its a nice one! Peachy color to the body, with a faint haze. The head is thin and fades. Fruity aroma earns big points. But ultimately the flavor rules. Nice apricot sweetness, smooth, and a slight bitter in the aftertaste only. Very good double IPA by any standard. A define must try if you like this type of beer. Good introduction to double IPAs, but do not expect them all to be this good!

the type of beer that I must have again. luckily it is around jersey and pretty fresh! probly one of my new top dipa's. has a lot of subtle complexities, not sure where they hid those hops, they're coming out in the most elegant ways, and it just goes down like nothin

12 oz. bottle with no date

A - Golden straw bronze with a thick white head

S- Super complex! I'm getting hints of sweet malt, pineapple, grapefruit tart, clementine rind, white grape, and a hibiscus floral scent.

T - This beer come rushing at your taste buds! Malt with a slight alcohol burn gets blown away by a sudden rush of floral hops. Getting orange, citrus, piney hoppy joy! This is a literal hop bomb but the malt backbone holds it on it's own to balance it out as it lingers!

M - Resiny mouth feel to this one but yet still crisp and dry on the finish. The hops wreck your palate though and dance on your tongue for a while after every sip.

O - Oh heck of a double IPA! Great malt and hop contrast will definitely please any hop head! Not the most balanced Double IPA but the hop line up on this one is really well done and leads to a fantastic beer! Also dangerously drinkable for 9.5% found myself blowing through this one before i knew it! Great offering from Firestone Walker!

Undated bomber into a snifter. Smells like sunshine- pineapple, grapefruit with a little wheat and a funky sourness in the background that I can't quite identify. Nearly clear gold with a frothy white head that leaves big looping lace.

Wow- this is incredibly juicy and sweet. The finish dries up a bit with some bitterness. Alcohol stays incredibly well-hidden. Mouthfeel is slick without being sticky. The complexity of this beer encourages me to take my time, but it's not overbearing at all. Would guess that this bottle is not incredibly fresh, and I'm sure this beer is even better when it is.
