look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A- Nice bright orange body with creamy white head, tons of carbonation.

S- Lots of sweet orange, citrus and malt notes coming through with a hint of alcohol.

T- Sweet citrus, leaning towards orange and some apple, big bitterness on the tongue, malt really balances everything out. Super smooth.

M- Medium Body; Tons of carbonation helps clean the pallet after every sip. Really smooth and pleasant feel to this, couldn't be any better.

O- Excellent beer, as it warmed up it really opened up a lot more and showed how good it really was.

Bottle from Bear World in Watertown.

A - Pours a light golden colour. Two fingers of thick eggshell head. Really small bubbles. Bright. Nice gentle carbonation. Nice thick rings of soapy lace and a full finger of retention. Looks pretty nice.

S - Generous citrus. Not aggressive. Lot's of hops with citrus grapefruit, peach, and pineapple.

T - Really aggressive hops, peach, lot's of pineapple and grapefruit. Biscuity and a little booze. Sweet candy.

M - Nice bitterness, full body and some gentle carbonation.

O/D - Not bad. Not a great DIPA. I was expecting more but enjoyed it. Really drinkable.

Double Jack has absolutely nothing that you can't love about it. Crystal clear orange body with a big solid almost white head.

Aroma is like you've ventured out and decided to walk through a forest filled with pine trees. Lots of pine, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, and a nice malty backbone. Mild herbal, floral, and vegetal aromas come through as well. Everything is blended amazingly and so many different aromas can be picked out.

Sweet tropical fruits/massive pine hit the taste buds right away. Bitterness takes a moment to come through and the dryness steps in towards the finish. The dry aspect makes you want to keep drinking more. A mild floral/herbal/rye taste blend well with the dryness at the end. A taste bud explosion!

Double Jack is one of the best DIPA's out there. Flavors rush over the palate and the mouthfeel is such a highlight here. From start to finish you're left with flavors/textures to enjoy. Firestone is crafting the best of the best and Double Jack is another testament to them.
