I saw this and I figured I would give it a try.

A - Light orange color with course white head. Good lacing. Slight hop haze.

S - Nice citrus hop nose. Light malt and grain smell after the hops.

T - Nice citrus hops. Complimenting malt flavor. Balanced and crisp. Distinct hop bitterness.

M - Lighter to moderate mouth-feel. Has some bitterness and the carbonation seems to lighten the body.

Overall, a fine IPA. Definitely not a "Double" IPA. There is a hop forward profile but not enough to give it a great flavor. It is also pretty thin for 8.5% ABV making it not as good as many out there. I would not get it again but for the price and the higher ABV it is justified trying it but I would dare to say you're probably not going to be thrilled with your purchase.

Needs more hops to be a IIPA. Decent mouthfeel. Sweet bready cloying. Not bad for the price .

It's good to try. For a double IPA I like it. If you're a double IPA fan, give it a shot.

This pours a medium amber color with a full, beige head. The aroma is fairly malty considering it’s a double IPA. The taste is sweeter than anything with lots of bready tones. It’s a lighter and drinkable beer but in no way does this even begin to compare to other IIPAs on the market.

Like others have said... not a very good beer, and Not a DIPA but decent price point.

L -Light amber. Hazy. Short white head, not persistent.
S - Sugar and vague citrusy hops. A little fruity.
T - Not good. Indistint cloying sweetness. Bitter slightly citrus finish.
O - The two primary characters are cloying and bitter. Not a great combo.

Minhas Creek Brewing 'Imperial Jack Dbl IPA' @ 8.5% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $4

A-pour is gold from the bottle to a hazy amber in the glass with a small thin off-white head leaving a streaky lace along the pint

S-funky hops

T-big booze (eww) , definately not smooth

MF-lack of carbonation , full ugly body

Ov-one & done , almost a drain pour

From notes on 10/27/13

Boatwain Double IPA from Trader Joes. Pours the color of bright orange yellow. Not much smell, but what smell there is isn't pleasant. Not really hoppy at all. Kind of a rust taste. Easily the worst pale ale I've ever had. But paid $2 for a 22 once bottle, so can’t expect much.
