Poured into a Dogfish Head Spiegelau glass.

A - Pours as nice orange hue. Think sudsy head.

S - Smells of tropical fruit; Mango, apricot, mango, papaya.

T - Tons of tropical fruit flavors as mentioned with the smell. Of course with it being 9.5%, it was a little boozy, but not overpowering.

M - Good carbonation with a bitterness that lingers in the mouth.

O - Honestly a little let down from this one, but a great beer nonetheless. Lots of tropical fruits, but not the crisp hop profile that I was expecting.

A-Typical deep orange/dark honey DIPA look. Wow this sandy 4-finger head seems to never die! One of the best billowy heads I've seen in any beer.

S-Citrus. Hops. Bubbling sugar.

T-Bitter fat hops crash like asteroids on the surface of tongue. Exploding bursts of citrus wash over. Sweet-breads such as fruitcake and cinnamon raisin. Orange bitters. Grapefruit. Honey.

M-Medium body. Nice thickness. Gel like in texture on the finish.

O-The taste wins. The flavor and overall smoothness make Double Jack a top shelf DIPA. Flavor shape-shifts a bit even as it warms, retaining the character but inviting your palate to discern new and previously unknown taste traits. 9.5% ABV is barely perceptible. Sneaks up on you nicely. Try to keep a bomber in the home at all times. Go Firestone!

From a 750ml bottle into a tulip.

A: Nice golden amber, with no haze, and an airy white head.

S: Citrus with some floral undertones and a little pine.

T: Hoppy, with some more hops. Afterwards lending to some malt backing with a slight carmel hint.

M: Medium, not as heavy or oily as expected from a strong hoppy beer.

O: A great DIPA, not my favorite but in my top 10. If you enjoy hoppy beers this one is worth trying. I will get it again.

Serving type: bottle
