I poured this 1 pt. 6 oz. bottle into a nonic pint glass. No freshness dating apparent.

A: clear honey gold color, pours a wicked creamy 3-finger head that slowly falls into an excellent cap with excellent lacing.

S: decadent. Orange, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange blossom honey, and underneath all of that loveliness is a caramel and biscuit malt base that more than holds it's own against the assertive fruity hops.

T: tastes as good as it smells, with loads of citrus and honey up front, an earthy, woodsy, floral and resinous middle, and a nicely bitter finish that shows off some herbal and pine hops. One extremely well put together DIPA.

M: medium bodied, silky to somewhat oily texture, moderate to plentiful carbonation.

O: This will definitely be a go-to DIPA in the future. If you love citrus-inspired DIPAs as I do, try this beer.

Double jack is another example of a great Cali IPA with bright citrus flavors, mostly grapefruit, and a finely tuned balance of hoppiness and alcohol content. Pours slightly dark orange with a moderate head and an almost overwhelming fruity aroma, double jack has a wonderful balance of bitterness, citrusy hops, and the high alcohol content of a DIPA. Served fresh on tap in an IPA glass, double jack is a very enjoyable standout ipa from firestone
