One beer style that Firestone Walker Brewing can brew that stands among others is an IPA. After being diminished to an occasional draft only offering over the past few years, Firestone Walker returns with its Double Jack Imperial IPA in 12oz cans. The return of Double Jack will be available for a limited time in the 2019 Merlin’s Mixed Pack that is currently rolling out this week to all Firestone Walker markets.

Joining Double Jack in the Merlin’s Mixed 12-Pack that is named after Brewmaster Matt “Merlin” Brynildson are 12oz cans of Union Jack IPA, Easy Jack IPA and Luponic Distortion. Union Jack also has seen a packaging refresh with new can’s that debuted a few months ago.

Here are descriptions of each of the four IPAs provided by Firestone Walker Brewing…

Double Jack: Limited Release
Firestone Walker’s dearly departed Double Jack returns with a vengeance in the Merlin’s Mixed Pack. Righteously hoppy yet supremely balanced, Double Jack is the brewery’s signature imperial IPA that still stands strong today. Although Double Jack was retired in 2016, fans continue to ask for it, so Firestone Walker decided to answer the clamor for a limited time.

Union Jack: Loud & Proud
Union Jack is taking a stand: new look, same intensely hopped IPA. This is Firestone Walker’s signature West Coast-style IPA, loaded with four pounds of hops per barrel. It now bears a new package that is loud and proud, just like the beer itself.

Easy Jack: Easier Than Ever
Easy Jack is easier than ever. Starting in 2019, Firestone Walker’s Easy Jack IPA is changing things up by dialing down the ABV to 4% (from 4.5%), offering the same hoppy goodness with even more drinkability at just 120 calories.

Luponic Distortion: Flavors through Hops
No fruits, no flavorings, no shortcuts—just the magic of 100-percent natural hops. This is the mantra of Firestone Walker’s Luponic Distortion IPA Series. While the base beer remains the same, each release features a different hop blend built around new and experimental hops, always aiming to deliver bright tropical flavors that pop on the palate.
