No enjoy be date on the label.
Poured fairly aggressively into a standard pint glass.

A: A fairly agressive pour resulted in about one finger of light biege head that quickly disapated into a single layer of bubbles. The brew is a very nice golden orange and pretty clear.

S: The aroma is a big pine rush, with some grapefruit and just a little bit of malt sweetness, too.

T: Nice grapefruit and pine resin and just a hint of sipciness. There is also a malt backbone present that is just enough to hold the grapefruit and pine together.

M: The body is on the heavier side of medium and there is just the right amount of carbonation for this style of beer.

O: A great pine and grapefruit whack. This beer makes only a slight concession to the malts - just enough malt to keep the hops from getting out of control. This is an outstanding version of the completely hops focused type of IPA. This should be on any hop heads' list of must trys.

3.63/5  rDev -16.4%

Color: yellow, with a drop of orange
Smell: very strong, citrusy aroma filled with grapefruit and a hint of apricot
Taste: Very piny and sour, though not very hoppy for a DIPA
Mouthfeel: Went from a soft to hard feeling, yet very smooth and light on the carbonation
Overall: Double Jack was good, and was certainly with the try, yet it is by no means my DIPA of choice. Would I repeat? Certainly. Would I go out of my way to repeat? No.

Review written in real time.

A: Pours a beautiful copper color with off-white head that is still there 10 minutes later. I have seen naked women who did not look this good!

S: I was so enthralled with the high alcohol and the thick malt aroma that I initially mistook the piney hops for citrus hops. A deeper inhale set me straight.

T: Unless you have a fetish for pine needles, this beer is not for you. The taste begins with a malt sweetness and ends with a sharp dryness and a pine needle aftertaste.

M: The body is full. The alcohol is smooth. The experience was neither.

O: I am so glad I did not pay for this beer.
