Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, grass and grains. Taste is light bitters with a light tart bite. Soft carbonation, slick texture and some dryness on the finish.

davidezdonz (257) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 17, 2016
A 16.9 fl oz. bottle with no bottled on or best by date, poured into a Moonzen teku glass. It poured a cloudy golden colour with a slightly less than two finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing. Aromas of citrus orange, mandarin and a bit of peel with hints of mango. Tastes juicy with orange, melon and mango dominating. There are also some light herbal and floral notes, a hint of lemon zest and is lightly bitter. Light bodied and highly carbonated. Overall another great lager from Jack’s Abby. Much like Hoponius Union, it is light tasty and easy to drink.

Homer321 (3963) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Can thanks to Will Run For Bier! Poured to snifter. Nose is huge in tropical fruit and citrus. Not a lot of lagery sulfur yeasty aroma. Pretty clean. Hazy light gold in color. Small white head, laces well.. Taste is like a melon ball with a light grassy note. Fucken tropical and quenchable. Maybe a little thin, but I’m not sure a premium lager shouldn’t be. Damn tasty. Can JoeT make IPL a style already. This is giving Budweiser a bad rap!

kramer (5763) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a one finger creamy white head. The nose is bright and hoppy with a dry pale bready malt base. The flavor is dry and crisp with a fresh and bright hoppiness, lighter on the bitterness. Very clean and super crushable. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Really great stuff.

CamdenD (1177) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 30, 2016
Premium lager? Yeah maybe. This beer straddles the "session" aspects with "lingering" perfectly. An interesting drinker.

trapped (2071) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 26, 2016
Can. Cloudy yellow with off-white foamy head, citrus aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sweet lemon peel taste (like Meyer lemons), smooth body, lightly bitter long finish. Very smooth and tasty.

Jow (3276) - New York, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Nice purple can on a Saturday afternoon while trying to get my son to eat. Golden pour puffy white head. Nose is tropical fruit and bitter pine. Trees of pine, grapefruit, orange rind, sweet tangerine, some grainy notes. Light bodied but it’s a session after all. Very nice could see grabbing a bunch of this if I was hosting a cookout.

Oakes (14975) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
Cloudy, dull tan with a big head. Has a light, fruity aroma. Light melony fruit with lemony accents.
