COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double IPL.
Two years into our brewery and we’re fueling the fires surrounding extremely hoppy beers. In celebration of our anniversary and in support of our fans, we’re brewing this extra hoppy Double IPL. Together, we have taken a journey to redefine the term ’lager.’ Prost! 17.5°
June 2013 Released as ’2nd Anniversary Lager’

Pours golden with a minimal white lacing. The aroma is hop forward with notes of melon, grass and citrus. Alcohol is well masked

My Bottom Line:
This floral and citrusy Double IPL is grounded by subtle honeyed cereals for a very personable example.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear honeyed blond.
-Mouthfeel is lean and drinkability very high.
-Resinous bitterness rises with every sip, but the juicy hops help weather the blow.
-This is as well-made as their Pilseners, which I appreciate.

On tap at The Reservoir, Waterbury, VT.

Bottle at home, acquired through trade. Pour is slightly hazy golden with a frothy white head and great lacing. Huge tropical fruity aroma - mango, pineapple, tangerines - light biscuit, straw, orange peel, weed and grass. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, cracker, ganja, pineapple, dough, weed, and oranges with a big dry bitter finish. Slick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Seriously tasty tropical hop bomb.

Tap. Pours a light gold color. Strong floral and citrus hop aroma. Powerful punch on the first sip. A lingering bitter aftertaste builds as you work your way through the beer. Goes down easily. Powerful beer and very good.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks John! Pour with a touch of haze and a very nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is grapefruit, tropical fruit, more grapefruit, pine, floral, and malt. Well crafted.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Solid take on craft beer staple. Great citrus aroma and just a tad more bitter than you might expect. I don?t get many opportunities to drink lagers, but this may be my favorite. Jack?s Abby has really perfected their craft. Highly recommend for a different take on the India Pale.

PhillyCraft (3253) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
On tap at pro pig, pours clearish golden with medium lace. For a pilsner this jawn is nice and hoppy with some grapefruit and diesel. A little bit of sweet malting but mostly pretty dry and hoppy for a pilsner.

CraftBeerLvr41 (82) - Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2014
A: Golden in color. Nice foamy white head that lingers. Great lacing. S: Smell is amazing. Huge aroma citrus, tropical fruit, some peach, apricot with some malt coming through. T: Nice citrus grapefruit right up front, then a little tropical fruit taste. Has a good malt backbone and has a solid base. Some sweetness but not much, overall pretty dry the way I like. On the back end it has some bitterness on the finish with some pine resin notes. M: Light and mostly dry. It’s really crisp and would enjoy on a nice summer day. O: A really nice beer. I wish I got this around here to get regularly.

Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT. Pours clear gold,lightly effervescent with a large, frothy white head. Lovely aroma, some grapefruit, tangerine, some general pithy citrus, melon. Light-medium sweet flavor with lots of semi-rip citrus, melon, stone fruits, lemon peel, grapefruit rind, pine needles. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Mellow warmth to finish, some juicy melon, grapefruit, light pine resins, tangerine, a bit of rindy bitterness. Solid.

Blue monk Draft. Hazy burnt orange yellow body with a creamy thin white head that laces down. Nose is grassy and fresh, good citrus notes. Taste is Nice and smooth bodied malt with a grassy hop profile and light bitter finish. Really smooth and balanced.
