A dangerously drinkable Double IPA. Double Jack opens up with bright grapefruit and tangerine American hop aromas. Beautifully crafted undertones of stone fruit are revealed upon first sip, followed by the essence of blue basil and pine. A sturdy pale and crystal malt backbone brings balance to high hop intensity. Complex and aggressively hopped, and flawlessly balanced.

Big. bold up front aroma and taste, but goes down easy. Amber color with nice creamy head, hoppy smell, and slick mouthfeel. This is how a double IPA should taste.

Yellowish color. Herbal aromas and flavor notes. Otherwise, a fairly average IPA. I'm not sure I understand the high marks this beer gets.

Pours a very light hazy amber, ample carbonation and a short lived head. A 12 ounce can dated 9/11/20 so over six months old. First time to find it locally so I bought it. It has grapefruit aroma and not particularly strong. Taste is all hops. Mostly grapefruit and pine. Definitely of the West Coast variety. I imagine it much crisper if it were fresh. I get some resin in the tongue. A hint of sweetness in there too. Overall I think age took it's toll but still tastes good and I'd like to give it another chance when I can get it fresh.

A-orange/gold, minimal head as expected with the high ABV
S-Smells like a a west coast double
T-tastes as advertised too. Relatively malt-forward, but never overly so. The grapefruit and pine stay up front where they belong. Above average bitter.
M-slightly above avg carbonation. Medium body.
O-One of the better WC DIPA's I've enjoyed, despite the SIX MONTH age. Fresh, this thing would be killer.

Bought a variety 12-pack $15.98 Foodland
85 days old
Smell of citrus and pine
Light amber color
Medium mouthfeel
Medium carbonation
Taste of alcohol dominates with some citrus and bitterness flavors
Overall not that great. I think high ABV beers that hide their alcohol well are good so this isn't it. Very unbalanced. Would not buy again.
