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’

In short: A sweet blonde lager hopped the American IPA way. Simple well balanced good beer.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed fresh.
The look: Mostly cloudy dark blonde body topped by a medium white head leavings thick lacings on the glass.
In long: The hoppy nose of medium intensity is very bright and has a citrus zest and pine needles character. In mouth the beer is full body with plenty of very soft bubbles. Taste starts with crunchy hay-like pale cereals, some honey, a little too much residual sugars (refined white sugars sensation). This is then followed by a generous hopping but without a bitterness overly assertive, just enough to balance the beer. Pine needles, citrus fruits, lemon zest, floral notes. A very good beer even if a little too sweet. I prefer their regular IPL (Hoponius) over this cranked up Double IPL. And after my latest trip to Vermont I can confirm you can go to the beer store just to pet bottles, there’s no law against it.

Pours golden and hazy, fluffy white head, left lacing throughout. Aroma of damp and musty, some citrus, grains, and malts. Taste was that same kind of dank and musty taste. Nothing bad, and I actually enjoy the Jack’s Abby lagers. Just what I got out of it and also some bitter citrus in there of grapefruit and lemon. Kind of a dry finish. Nicely done.

Golden cloudy with big white head. Citrus grapefruit hoppy grassy aroma. Tasty lite malt with citrus balance. Nice bitter hoppy finish. The best characters if an IPA in a lager yum. Thanks dlovell2 for sharing.

Pours a bright yellow gold color. It’s quite transparent. There’s some sediment at the bottom of the bottle, but a gentle-ish pour didn’t disturb it and cloud things up. Big puffy white head. Lots of lacing. Big clumps on the walls of the glass. Excellent retention. Floral and citric hop aroma. Pale bready malt sweetness. Some peach, white grape, mango. It’s all a bit mild, though, and really could be juicier. Surprisingly little lager yeastiness. Taste is similar. Some lemon, peach, grass, pine. Again, fairly mild. Moderate bitterness. Very clean. Some pale malt sweetness, doughy sugars. Little bit of solvent bitterness in the finish. Light and crisp, particularly for the abv. Pretty good beer.

Similar to Hopponius Union in terms of hop profile. A little more heavy on the malt side. Crisp lager finish. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Prufrockstar (1365) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2014
12 oz bottle with thanks to BoostIPA. Dark gold pour with ample white head, good retention. Dank, more caramel than hoponious union, sweeter but with a solid bitter finish. For some reason this felt less precise than hoponious union. Digging these brews.

Bottle thanks to Duchammer: Poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma was very dank hops. Taste was nice strong hops, grain and although robust very drinkable.

Pours clear golden color with white head. Aroma is grassy fruity hop aroma. Sweet malty start with grass and fruity notes. Finish is citrus hops with some bitterness. This beer is really smooth.
