The Brü Revü – Firestone Walker Double Jack IPA
Firestone Walker is officially in Texas and Austin was chosen as the kickoff of their Texas tour. I was fortunate enough to bring back their Union Jack IPA from a vacation to San Diego and have been eagerly anticipating their arrival in Austin ever since. Their roll-out came with several events around town and a limited number of bombers of their core beers and more. I was able to grab a Double Jack and I am so happy I did. It poured a deep gold with a creamy head and was a beautiful beer. The aroma was full of hop notes with citrus some pine a little dankness too. The taste was straight up hops like an amped up Union Jack. It had a dry bitterness that coated my palate with grapefruit and lemon rind with some caramel underneath. The Double Jack didn’t play around. It was a straight up double IPA and it let you know it. This was a truly great beer from a great brewery and it’s satisfying to know it will be readily available in Austin.
