The Double Jack poured a deep gold with a creamy head and was a beautiful beer. The aroma was full of hop notes with citrus some pine a little dankness too. The taste was straight up hops like an amped up Union Jack. It had a dry bitterness that coated my palate with grapefruit and lemon rind with some caramel underneath. The Double Jack didn’t play around. It was a straight up double IPA and it let you know it.

One of my Favorite Double IPA's!!

A: It poured a delicious copper/amber, crystalline yellow with a small thick head that quickly dissipated and led a small lacing round the glass
S: A sweet citrus and pine right off the bat! Sweet molasses and resinous notes with some nice piney grapefruit
T: outstandingly complex combination of pineapple, tangerine, mango, lemon with a small touch of resinous caramel.
M: low carbonation but very pleasent.
O: A great double IPA that is true to its style. Deliciously complex and not over powering. Be careful of that abv though. This beauty will easily seduce you and before you know it you are on the floor and missing 60 bucks

Thanks to bnuno for the awesome trade again!

A: It poured a awesome amber, crystalline yellow body with a small thick head that announced that this beer has low carbonation. Yet, the perfect level of carbonation for this IIPA.
S: Once I've popped the cap, the aroma of citrus and pine came up with such intensity that made Double Jack, possibly, the most aromatic beer I've ever had.
T: Its taste is an amazingly complex combination of pineapple, tangerine, mango, lemon with a small tone of resin and caramel.
M: For a beer with 75 IBUs, the bitterness has a low profile while the beer is still inside the mouth but after the sip it creates the awesome feeling of dry mouth that so much craft brewers want to replicate. Awesome.
O: It was my first IIPA and my first FW beer and I'm convinced, very convinced. This is probably the awesomest american beer I've had until today.
