Firestone Walker Double Jack
Firestone Walker Brewing Co. – Double Jack – On Tap at Naja’s Place in Redondo Beach, CA. Poured into proper glassware. 9.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours a vibrant golden amber with a 1/8 inch of off white foam.
Aroma: Light whiffs of pine and grapefruit.
Taste: A large mouthful of grapefruit that is followed by a piney flowery mango blast finishing moderately bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. About the same viscosity as Union Jack.
Overall: Way more balanced than I had anticipated. I wouldn’t have minded it being offensively hoppy, but it just wasn’t. A really great beer.
