Firestone Walker Brewing Company Double Jack
What the brewers say
A dangerously drinkable Double IPA. Double Jack opens up with bright grapefruit and tangerine American hop aromas. Beautifully crafted undertones of stone fruit are revealed upon first sip, followed by the essence of blue basil and pine. A sturdy pale and crystal malt backbone brings balance to high hop intensity. Complex and aggressively hopped, and flawlessly balanced.
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Bright fruit/citrus hop up front: lemon zest, subtle orange, some floral character, some wildflower honey notes. Slight alcohol notes. Light malt sweetness. Clean and crisp. Good level of complexity.”
Flavor: “Fruity, intense hops carry through—pine, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, some cattiness. Bitterness compliments the rich malt profile well. Lingering bitterness.”
Overall: “Very tasty DIPA with a complex hop profile and complex bitterness.”
