B/D 12.13.12
My doublejack has a golden amber color, is slightly hazy with some gentile carbonation.
I started pouring softly and when I noticed a head wasn't forming so I poured more aggressivly and was rewarded with a fine tall head, beige and sticky. The head retention was moderate and the head faded rather quickly leaving spotty lacing in it's wake.
I.m having difficults picking up any onre particular hop scent. To me it smells fresh and hoppy with perhaps some tangerine but I think it's suggestive from reading reviews. If anything, I would say floral and piney. Sweet malts are balanced too. A deep wiff and i can smell the alcohol.

Taste was bullied with a big hop bitterness. Sweet caramel malts make the base with a touch of bready graininess as well. Hops are taste, bold, oily and in your face but seem to lack flavor.
Drinks smooth and thick with a tongue slapping bitterness that lingers well after.
I like this beer it was good. The ABV caught up to me quickly. This beer was only a month old when openned and I thought it would be more flavorfull.

December Bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a golden color with 2 finger head. Tons of lacing on the glass.

S: Dank, citrus, and some tropical sweet fruit notes.

T: Citrus, grape fruit, pine resine and HOPS.

M: Medium bodied, sticky dry finish. Hops really drying out the mouth.

O: Fantastic west coast style IPA with a malty back bone. Must try for DIPA fans.
