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.

gururyan (646) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 28, 2013
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.

Evolutionary (348) - Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle from gahanna beer store. Dank nose with thin pour. Hop bitterness dominates with some sweet toffee like shimmer. Smooth and interesting although it's not amazing. Would do again I think.

TXBadger (1793) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with white head. Funky pine and light citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweeter and maltier than I expected.

screigh (500) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pours a super hazy straw color. Almost looks like grapefruit juice. Thin wide head that leaves plenty of lacing. Malty and hints pine in the aroma. Very creamy mouth feel. Almost a dusty dank flavor. A fruit flavor (not sure what) pops out just before the bitterness kicks in. Lingering and a bit harsh bitterness.

DrinkyCrow (98) - Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle. Thick foamy head, fairly clean amber appearance. Hoppy and sweet, a somewhat interesting IPA.

beeratarian (150) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours a hazy orange with thick medium tan head. Aroma is malty and piney. Lots of hop resin in the taste, a little sweet for the style. Caramel and malt are very present. Almost taste aged. More alcohol flavor than 8.1% suggests. Long bitter and pine resin finish. Not bad not great.

chuckstout (310) - Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Tropical, citrus aroma. Pours a fairly clear copper color with dense white head. Heavy sticky hop flavor.

italianjohn (2447) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Cloudy golden orange pour with a thin off white head .... Aroma of apricots, citrusy hops, caramel malts and a bit boozy .... Taste is of citrusy hops, caramel malts, apricots and some toasted malts .... Has a chewy and thick feel ... The Ibus are not really there for 115 and the abv Is hidden well .... A bit sugary

swoopjones (6755) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
bottle, 22oz, solid IIPA. orangeish pour, fuller mouthfeel. piney hops, citrusy notes, touch of earthy notes. overall, a nice not mind blowing IIPA.

Lagerboy (1507) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Bomber. Unclear brownish orange, firm lasting off-white foam. Pungent pine citrus c-malt aroma. More potent than bitter, earthy woody fruity citrus hop taste, deep darker caramel malt, spicy floral herbal evergreen notes. Average carbonation, full bodied, aggressively hopped. Big bold bad boy.
