Tap. Pours a clear gold with a pillowy head that sticks around. The flavor is mildly hoppy but has a strong, piney bitterness that overpowers any other flavors in the beer. OK overall.

Bottle... Hazy and peach-colored with a small, fleeting, white head. The nose is chock full of tannins and fruit rinds. Full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is bitter, bitter, bitter and bitter, flanked by more bitterness and minerals. Finishes tannicly bitter and dry. Not even close to being my thing.

Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a clear golden body with a three finger white foamy head that rises and falls and leaves some nice speckled/yet somewhat spider web lacing. There is some light slowly moving carbonation is seen rising. The smell is spicy through the citrus, slight hint of pine, comes out slightly grassy as well. The taste is spicy and bitter through previously mentioned flavors, slight grapefruit comes out slightly sweet (malty, perhaps?), sticky aftertaste. The palate is about a medium, perhaps sessionable, yet smooth, dry finish. Overall, this is a nice spicy Double Pilsner that is good for its style and good for me.

Bottle @ Beachwood Brewing, sent courtesy of Clark. Slightly hazed orange pour with a white head. Smells of marmalade, candied orange peel, and caramel malt. Strong apricot jam notes as well. Much sweeter than I anticipated, particularly on the palate. Big time orange marmalade and apricot jam. Notes of pine and herbal bitterness on the finish. A fair amount of caramel sweetness, too. Lightly grassy.

In short: A crisp biscuity and very grapefruity Double IPA (I know, I know, it’s a lager). Very good.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed moderately fresh weeks after receiving it from Loineshawn, formerly Lushawn, formerly the short ugly one in New Kids On The Block.
The look: Mostly cloudy dark blonde body topped by a medium white head with medium retention.
In long: The monster hoppy nose is mostly bright white grapefruits, a bit citric (lemon zest). In mouth the beer has a crisp & grainy texture with plenty of carbonation. Flavor wise the beer starts with crisp grainy crackery and biscuity malts offering a sugary sweetness (more residual sugars than actual honey or caramel). Assertive grapefruity hops offers a worthy opponent to the malts sweetness. Everything comes out very bright in this beer. Another excellent beer from Jack Abby. I really enjoyed this beer despite the rude bartender who refused to serve me another beer and said I already had too much to drink and I should take out the trash and I have to stop calling her “bartender”.

hazy honey with a puffy white head. Dank ass nose, skunk hops with light biscuit underneath. Flavor equally dank, toast and darker grains with warmth. Abv in abc is most apparent in body, slick and lightly oppressive despite effervescence.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. A little unbalanced. Grapefruit hop notes dominate. Decent mouthfeel and body.

glad i found this bottle at a new store i checked out. Was a little worried because i wasnt sure how old it was. But no need to fear. A good beer all around. Some peach and pine aromas with some dust and dankness. Bitter resin taste. light malt lager taste and little crisp body. Golden pretty color and as always a remarkable head. thumbs up jack.

Tap and bottle. Big beer, big taste.big hops. Can’t believe they’ve sold out of this. Pours golden with soft white head, an Imperial IPA in a lager, who knew? These guys continue making new and different beer, hopefully this will be making a reapperance soon

I love this brewery. Amazing what they’re doing with lagers. This is big and juicy like a 2XIPA. Light orange in color with fluffy head. Some pine and citrus in the nose and taste. YUM!!!!

Draft @ Lord Hobo. Snifter shows a clear gold with thick retention down the glass. Nose is a delightful mixture of tropical fruit, grapefruit and biscuit malt. Flavor is ripe honeydew melon, grapefruit pith, over ripe pineapple and bitter grapefruit. Bitterness linger for a long duration, and hangs well after the final sip. Lots of fruit and solid bitterness. As this beer warms pine hops make an appearance. Damn, this is a really tasty brew, I would drink this any day of the week.
