A - Light gold, slight haze, thick head fades quickly and leaves a lasting film. Heavy lacing.

S - Heavy on the pine hops, some caramel sweetness, citrus notes, and honestly the sweetness reminds me of bubblegum.

T - Hop forward of course, starts with strong pine, then overwhelmed with orange transfers into a malt sweetness. Some have stated there isn't an alcohol burn, initially there isn't but after a few minutes the flavor lingers and you get that burn.

M - Thick body coats the palate, low/medium carb.

O - Never a bad brew from FSW, this is an excellent DIPA, but not a leader of the category like Union Jack for IPA's.

Poured into a glass, and it's a nice copper color with moderate head and leaves a nice lacing in the glass.

Has a huge hop aroma, mostly piney, citrusy hops.

Tastes like it smells, with a huge hop presence but nicely balanced with some malts. There's a slight taste of caramel and a slight hint of barley.

It goes down smooth, with a moderate body.

Overall, this is one of the best double IPAs. I had found this in a local shop that got in several new double IPAs all at the same time, many of which I had never tried and some of which I had been looking for. Out of all of the excellent double IPAs I had during this time period, Firestone Walker's Double Jack was the best of the bunch.
