A: Honey/light orange with a nice white head.

S: Hops, tropical fruit, alcohol, slight carmel malt. The smell lights up immediately, the way a good West Coast IPA is supposed to!

T: Heavenly. Apricots, honey, and tangerine on the front, hoppy dryness and malt sweetness on the back. This is a nearly perfect DIPA, right up there with some of the best. My top 3 West Coast IPAs are Sculpin, Alesmith IPA, and Pliny. This is in this mix.

M: Silky and perfectly carbonated. Some DIPA take on an overly heavy thickness, Double Jack gets it perfect.

O: This is a gem in this category! One of my favorite DIPA/West Coast IPAs for sure. Surprisingly drinkable for the heavy ABV. Get this beer!
