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

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.

Wow, I'm not really sure why this was called a double IPA. The brewery needs to look up what a double IPA.
It's a amber color, it says the IBU are 75 I don't think so. I could not find a brew date on it anywhere so I assume it was fresh.
I wasted $12.00 for the six pack

I purchased this for 2 bucks and change for a bomber which should have been a good clue that this is terrible. Pours an amber color with a white head that dissipates quickly. Double ipa? The smell is only malt and sulfur. The taste is that of a maltier rhinelander export lager. This is garbage. This should be labeled malt liquor. Rhinelander, be embarrassed. This is awful.
