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.

IndianaRed (2604) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2014
On Tap at the River Room, While Foods, Boise Hazy golden orange, with an impressive full off-white head leaving heavy thick sheets of lacing. Modest fresh citrusy hop aroma. Big IBU bite and reasonable west coast hop flavors. A little metallic and medicinal, late grassy bitterness. Pretty clean and modest bodied for a double. Decent.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
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.
