Drank from a 12 fl. oz. (355ml) bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors, Westboro, MA
Served in a snifter
Bottled on 01/08/13 07:57

Crystal clear, glowing amber appearance. The uber-filtered liquid was topped by a three-finger, tight, bubbly crown of off-white foam. Slowly, the head dissipated to a resilient frothy cap. Streaks of soapy lacing coated the glass and lasted until the beer was finished.

Near perfect aroma. Super punchy and bright. Lots of C-hop notes. Tons of tropical fruits. Mango dominated. Papaya. Good amount of tangerine and orange zest. Hint of caramel-like sweetness. Nicely balanced. Some resiny hops appeared as the beer warmed.

The flavor profile was respectible yet quite different from the nose. It was much drier and more bitter with strong white grapefruit notes. Orange peel and tangerine were evident. Some lemon in the center. Slightly tart. The finish was punchy. Pithy, dry and bitter with lots of grapefruit rind. At 9.5% ABV, the alcohol was remarkably well masked.

The liquid was medium bodied and pillowy soft on the palate. Creamy, smooth and supple with a crisp, somewhat lively effervescence.

All in all, Double Jack is a very impressive beer and definitely one of the best widely available double IPAs on the market.
