COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal; Autumn - Released in November.
This is an intensely hoppy and strong lager that we refer to as a Double India Pale Lager. Over four pounds of hops per BBL of New Zealand hops (Kiwi Hops) were used in progressively larger hop additions throughout the brewing process. Four kettle hop additions, whole leaf hops in the hop back, and multiple dry hop additions infuse an intense floral and citrusy aroma. No kiwifruit or kiwi birds were used in the production of this beer.

Pint.9 into a glass. Pours a solid marmalade orange. Medium white head, no real lacing retention at all. Aroma of orange peel, orange, wheat, hops, grass, pineapple, grain. Taste of juicy citrus fields, melon, grape, hoppy grass cuttings, soil, zesty peach. Excellent for a lager, quite drinkable, faint booze bug, so relaxing. Winning

Bottle. Pours a bright, mainly clear yellow with a big foamy white head. Aroma had citrus, tropical, and pine notes. Flavor had grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, and pine. Very solid brew. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter bite on the finish. Not a big lager fan, but Jack’s Abby makes some great ones I enjoy.

JBPortland (1451) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 16, 2015
500ml bottle pours slightly hazy orange with 2 finger head. Big nose with tons of tropical fruit, mango, orange, grassy citrus and light pine. Palate holds all the notes of the nose with nice bitterness level and just a kiss of light malt toast to back it up. Finishes bitter with long lingering piney tropical fruit, melon, and citrus. Awesome.

SlovakSniper (4702) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Une robe dorée et sa mousse petite mais intéressante pour mon œil. Des parfums concentrés de fruits comme une salade exotique arrosée par un sirop légèrement mielleux. Au goût, la base maltée est double tandis que les cultivars apportent un réconfort fruité, gazonné et floral. En bouche, le liquide est plutôt rond, pétillant et huileux. La finale est modérément amère, très fruitée comme une bière qui exploite ses houblons de glorieuse façon.

AlainG (1825) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2015
Une bière dorée ayant une mousse baveuse qui laisse des traces communes. Un nez houblonné et fruité; particulièrement pas l’ananas cuit, chauffé avec des élans sucrés. Le goût et aussi fruité, il est crémeux et on a l’impression de dessert, de gâteau, de sucre et fruits confits. L’effervescence aide au transport du liquide, la rendant facile à boire. (1672-031215)

This is a great beer. Huge pine and pineapple aroma. Some citrus peel and grapefruit. Pours golden with decent lacing, some initial head. Bitter finish. Light sweet malt. Great balance. Tap at Lord Hobo.

Strong citrus and hop aromas, golden with a nice cloudiness to it. Strong hops at the front, with citrus after taste and a bit of alcohol note to the finish

CacheManyHose (538) - HONG KONG - FEB 27, 2015
Cloudy straw-coloured, sudsy white head, streaky legs. Smells of very dry resinous hop, yeast, dry grass, lightly herbal pine needles, pepper, orange peel, guava, lemon. Tastes of deeply bitter piney hop, resin, light pepper, grapefruit, tangerine. Body is medium, very smooth, fluffy finish - palate is heavier than expected for a lager and very nice. Excellent, especially as it warms up.
