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.

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.
