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.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear gold with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of straw, grapefruit, lemon zest and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, earthiness, dank bud, grapefruit and light pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering earthy finish.

harrisoni (13828) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop and drunk at home. Clear gold deepish gold lasting ricky white head. Very big American PNW hop aroma. Aroma of a DIPA. It then has the drinkability of a lager in the mouth then big hops on the finish. Rather good to be honest. Big hoppy drinking beer. I think it’s hoppy and rather good. Bitter on the finish. It’s great. Big and hoppy and good.

MiP (13662) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle, 8%. Good grapefruity hop aroma. Almost clear shiny golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is papery and nicely hoppy. The hop flavour is papery, fruity, grapefruity and more or less clean. Distinct and good hop note.

Bamsen78 (3223) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle @ Wannsinchen / MiP bliver gammel. Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and citrus, with notes of yeast and malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of hops, touches of fruit, perfume and malt. Bitter aftertaste. Again a decent beer for the style but only because it is so far away from the widespread mocne...

Lightly hazy amber beer, good off white head. Palate is airy, slighty dry and a little crisp. Airy malts bring a little cream and pleasant light sweetness. Really nice hops - smooth pine that is both sweet and spicy. Underpinned by lovely light citric orange. Finishes smooth, mild bitter linger. Not really that lagerish but a lovely quaffable beer and beautifully joined up.

JulienHuxley (3256) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with nice frothy white head. Aroma of piney hop, nice fresh and piney. Taste is hoppy but not really bitter, maltiness is really discreet but the body of the beer really props up the hops nicel, really grassy. Body is light, carbonation is medium, finishes dry. Tasty stuff.

Jack’s Abby has pretty much single-handedly invented a bunch of new beer styles. They only brew lagers, but in traditional ale styles. Mass Rising is their take on a Double IPA, which they, not surprisingly, dub as a “Double IPL.” It definitely does drink like a beer of the style, though. Huge hop flavor and bitterness using some of the most popular hop combinations of the day.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. It was bottled on 7/28/14 and cost $3.99 ($0.33 per ounce).

Appearance: Bright pale yellow hue. Extremely hazy, but spastic carbonation can be seen. Pours to a huge, Duvel-like, white fluffy head which retains and laces extremely well.

Smell: Huge spicy hop aroma with notes of garlic, onion and lemon rind.

Taste: I’m not sure which hops are in this beer, as they’re not listed on the label or the brewery’s website. To me, it tastes a lot like Sorachi Ave – huge spicy notes with distinct onion, garlic and lemon rind flavors. An interesting combination to be sure, but they definitely do work. Strong dry bitterness from beginning to end (especially on the end, I might add). The malty backbone is strong enough to support the palette, though it doesn’t add much towards the taste except for a slight stone wheat cracker-like flavor. It complements the hops well, which also leave a residual spice rack seasoning aftertaste. Definitely the kind of beer to pair with a savory meal.

Drinkability: Though quite hefty at 8% ABV, Jack’s Abby Mass Rising is actually quite lithe. Since it is a lager, it does have a crisp mouthfeel and a body that’s on the lighter side for its potency. It goes down smooth, but it’s better enjoyed in sips than gulps. No alcohol warmth or distraction, which makes it almost too easy to drink.
