Double Jack IPA ~ Firestone Walker Brewing Co.

Appearance: beautiful brilliant golden oranges under a voluminous pithy head, tight and in no hurry to disappear. Mousse-like with random bubbly pockets. Lace surrounds.

Nose: orangey hoppy juicy freshly squeezed goodness. Mango, kiwi, and guava squeezed for my pleasure. Husky in the back. Hop cones in the back. Kiwi grows as initial chill dissipates.

Palate: hits the spot! Mango, kiwi, and guava. Lemon rind in the finish along with inner ripe yellow banana skins. Tropical flesh into tropical skins for lingering juicy husky bitterness with a rawness to it. Honeycomb with more comb than honey. Tangerines freshly picked and juiced.

Final Thoughts: clean and delicious. Firestone Walker inspires and teases because I can’t get any here in Florida. One of the tasting highlights of our Massachusetts vacation. Juicy hoppy goodness.
