look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

From a 750ml bottle into a tulip.

A: Nice golden amber, with no haze, and an airy white head.

S: Citrus with some floral undertones and a little pine.

T: Hoppy, with some more hops. Afterwards lending to some malt backing with a slight carmel hint.

M: Medium, not as heavy or oily as expected from a strong hoppy beer.

O: A great DIPA, not my favorite but in my top 10. If you enjoy hoppy beers this one is worth trying. I will get it again.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Amber color with a one finger head with short retention.
Nice aroma of pine, honey, vanilla and grapefruit.
Sweet flavor of toasted malts with strong notes of grapefruit citrusy, tangerines, pine, orange peel and resin. Also lots of honey and apricot, some mango and grass. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 9.5% is well hidden.
I preferred their superb IPA, DIPAs tend to be too sweet, and Double Jack is no exception. Nevertheless, this is a great citric DIPA, very deep and complex.

A: A rich and cloudy copper/golden color. Nice lacing.

S: Grassy, floral, and sweet.

T: Grapefruit and smokey citrus. Hoppy, malty, and biscuity. Caramel tastes.

M: Chewy and medium to full bodied. An almost woody aged feeling.

O: A classic and fantastic Double IPA. Maybe too strong for some, this is one of my favorites.
