Salvador Brewing Co. | Double Captain Jack

During the II World War, Jack Churchill made his enemies tremble. He went to the front using a bow and arrow, a sword and playing his bagpipes. Cap. Mad Jack, which was how he was nicknamed, was fearless and insane. As insane as the amount of hops that we put on the recipe of this NE IPA, which has the name of this war hero. In a even more potent version, the hops of choice now are Mosaic, Citra, Azacca and Ekuanot, resulting in an aromas and flavors explosion! (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)

  • Look: yellow color, turbid, with a good white head formation that leaves marks on the glass;
  • Aroma: very fruity aroma, bringing remembrance of peach and orange. In a lower level, resinous notes can be perceived as well.
  • Taste: its taste is really fruity, with emphasis on peach-like notes. Resinous notes are even more present than in the aroma. Herbal notes are present in a lower level.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-high body, medium-high carbonation and a dry but long finish. Fluffy;
  • Overall: Fresh, fruity and “chewy” beer. Really good Double NE IPA!
