COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Remember that first thrill ride and mind altering experience? Jet Star Imperial IPA shatters your senses in a way that has not been seen since Spokane’s ’74 World Expo. Jet Star is a roller-coaster ride of double dosed hops, packing 115 IBUs and 8.1% alc/vol. One heck of a flash-back.

Made in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Expo ’74 World’s Fair in Spokane, Washington. Tastes great. I wonder if they were drinking IPA back then?

Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Hazy blond color with medium head. Intense aroma, yellow fruits, apricots; mellow; later, a bit of pungent animal aroma appear. The mouthfeel is quite dry and lean, although also minimally oily; good malt flavor, a bit toasty, and with some fudge/toffee; very strong bitterness; the hopping is resiny and fruity, although in the very end there is a bit of chicory bitterness; I may sense infinitesimal diacetyl, not enough to disturb though.
Very good.

jesperhammer (2937) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
04-MAY-2914, bottle @Hyatt Regency hotel room, Washington DC, from Whole Foods P Street. Very hazy orange with lasting, lacing off-white head. Aroma is grape fruit and pine. Taste the same but also very alcoholic. Grand Marnier-like liqour taste. Nice. Dry hops but very sweet malts. Big body, medium carbonation, hot. Too alcoholic but otherwise fine IIPA.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2014
12oz bottle, from Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield. Don’t see any date on the otherwise neat-looking bottle. Poured into my DFH IPA glass. Half hazy yellow orange color. Good bigger off-white head that retains well, and leaves good thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Kind of a smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick in the finish. Grassy spicy hoppy flavor. Big bitterness, but also some big malty syrupy sweetness, and a bit of a sweet bite in the finish, more than necessary for the ABV. A bit of a heat in the finish, but at least it’s a nice hoppy heat. Nice citrus hop and resiny spicy hop, but the big sweet malt holds everything back a bit.

LinusStick (2870) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2014
An OK IIPA. Aroma was very malty. Caramel, pine and grapefruit. Pour was a nice hazy light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was sticky sweet and bitter hot. Very resinous with pine, grapefruit and sweet light malt. Hot sweet finish. Mild carbonation. Drinkable; nothing special

Gerbeer (1841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a light copper with moderate head. Aromas of pine, toffee, and pink grapefruit. Flavors are similar with an emphasis on pine. Very good but nothing to differentiate from the offerings of a hundred other micros.
