Two finger head. Smell is hopsational. The initial taste is hoppy with just enough backbone. This is kind of like pure hoppiness but less sweet are more alcohol taste.

Double Jack is one of my favorite DIPAs of all time. It is extremely aggressively dry-hopped which makes it very strong in its smell and taste profile.

The issue with this beer, as with so many other DIPA, is that recently it's been near-impossible to find fresh. I don't know if that's a result of their distro process, but it seemed to happen around the time they switched to the new bottle label.

The fact is that you will rarely find this beer fresh, and it's not worth the price usually. But always check, and if you do find that fresh bottle, buy it immediately and proceed to drink one of the better DIPA on the market today.
