These days, the New England/Hazy IPA is all the rage. In fact, I’ve even visited a few places over the past year where I couldn’t find a single West Coast style IPA on tap – just hazies. Thankfully, there’s been a bit of push back lately, and I’m starting to see more West Coast IPAs available again.
One of my all time favorite West Coast style IPAs is Double Jack from Firestone Walker Brewing Company out of California. I was sad when they discontinued Double Jack in 2016 in order to focus on the launch their Luponic Distortion series and Leo v. Ursus series of IPAs. Now though, by popular demand, Double Jack is back – at least seasonally.
