Default Firestone Double Jack

Searched for another thread and could not fine one. Picked up a bomber ($8+) at their Beulton tasting room after coming through for the holidays. Union Jack is probably my favorite IPA around so I was giddy to try the double. WOW! Would have to say that it is the best beer I have ever had. Ridiculous! Heaven in a bottle. I think the official release is soon. Have anyone else tried??

It's one of the best beers I've ever had.

I had on for the first time on tap at the brewery about 6 months ago.. I have a bottle now that I'll probably drink this weekend.
I love me some Union Jack, and Double Jack is, well, twice the kick in the face! Amazing beer.

I've had it on tap at the brewery in Paso and it is that good.

This is an ancient thread but I thought I'd dig it up as I'm also a huge fan of this beer... I've found two AG recipes for the beer:

1. http://hopville.com/recipe/809383/ho...ll-grain-clone

2. http://www.beerformulator.com/Recipe...hp?RecipeID=71

They are fairly different both in hopping and in malt percentages, I'm not familiar with "Simpson's Light Crystal" but I'm guessing Crystal 20 is pretty similar.

Anyone have a recipe they have used and found close to the real deal?

Union jack is good but double is just so insanely good.
