3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bestway. Always up for a good PNW IPA and this one does not disappoint. A bit on the peppery spice side but with a good dose of citrusy orange and grapefruit hops. Mostly orange citrus in the aroma. Caramel malt backbone to add some balance. Finish gets to the grapefruit that leaves a slight bitter burn on the back of your throat.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of pjdipes. 22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body supporting a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts with a dash of biscuit malts mixing with resiny pine hops and some citrus hard candy notes. The taste delivers rich deep chewy notes that are grapefruit and tangerine as well as resiny pine hop goodness with a decent enough base of sweet malts. The malts fade some into the finish leaving pleasing rich hoppiness lingering behind. Enjoyable IIPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jet Star Imperial IPA pours a golden honey color with a small beige cap. Aroma is of honey and mild citrus. Flavor is sweet. Maybe primed with molasses or honey. Definitely some citrus and lots of hoppy goodness. This beer is fairly rated. Not a show stopper, but definitely a good beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate head. Nose is quite floral up-front. Taste is definitely hoppy and bitter with the floral elements coming through in the taste, too. Very easy drink.

4/14/13. Bomber thanks to LOL bitbucket. WBW before OTL weight loss challenge tomorrow. Hazy orange pour with a small white head. Lots of yeast in the bottom of the bottle, beware floaties. Malty aroma and flavor, pale malts, biscuits, and a touch of caramel, with earthy, musty hops, and black tea. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bomber into snifter, typical DIPA/IIPA color, clear, but with sediment aplenty. Aroma is a bit bitter in a chemical way, taste matches with a soapy aftertaste. I have to say I am a bit disappointed but still enjoying it.
