Vibrant clear orange copper. Big dense offwhite head. Good retention. Dense frosty Laces. Quite the looker.

Grapefruit, citrus, spicy resins, herbal, pine. sweet and toasty with a small wiff of alcohol.

Juicy Grapefruit and citrus, spicy resinous with some pine and ganja. Toasty with some sugary sweetness. a light alcohol bite cuts through the hops.

Oily and sticky medium+ body that is creamy and silky for an IIPA. Lively but subtle carbonation.

So good. So drinkable. So tasty. One of the best IIPAs out there. Love this one.

Double Jack pours a crystal clear amber gold with a decent head. The aroma is floral, fruity citrusy hops and sweet malt. The flavor is sweet, pale malt with a huge hop presence. Citrusy and fruity, almost soapy, but really nice. Alcohol is well only betrayed by the sweetness, overall a really nice IIPA.

Poured from bottle into glass , super clear beer that is pale in color with lots of carb bubbles floating to the top , a one inch head that disapeared quick and not much lacing

The smell is just wonderful , super hoppy with the citrus hitting first, a little pine then the sweet malt ends it all

The mouth on it is great , nice and heavy with enough carbonation to lighten it up at the end

A well balananced flavor for a double , the hops and malt seem to trade places through the drink with a nice dry bitter finish

Overall this beer is on my list to keep around the house from now on , going to enjoy drinking more of this in the future
