Firestone Walker Double Jack: Pretty fine double IPA. Got this as a birthday present, and its a nice one! Peachy color to the body, with a faint haze. The head is thin and fades. Fruity aroma earns big points. But ultimately the flavor rules. Nice apricot sweetness, smooth, and a slight bitter in the aftertaste only. Very good double IPA by any standard. A define must try if you like this type of beer. Good introduction to double IPAs, but do not expect them all to be this good!

A - Pours copper in color, semi-translucent with an eggshell head. Decent lacing down the glass.

S - A citrus bomb in the nose with grapefruit/pineapple, a touch of pine hops along with light sweet malts in the background.

T - Resin & citrus with a good malt bill. Not Overly hoppy or a palette wrecker but does have a good hop bite finish.

M - Medium bodied/carbonation with a wet finish.

O - FW did things right with this beer. The taste left me wanting a little more though.
