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.

ACHops (591) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2013
22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours bright golden yellow with medium head, although quite a bit of sediment as the last sip poured much darker, more of a golden amber. Aroma is sharp piney hops with a bit of sweetness in the background. Taste is sweet thick caramel malt followed immediately by big bitter hops. Nice pine and citrus notes. Quite strong tasting for such a (relatively) low abv. Not as balanced as some of the better DIPAs, but solid. Reasonably priced too.

MrBunn (2384) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish gold with a decent head and aromas of resin and dankness. Flavor is mostly based around this combination over a honey sweet malt presence. A very solid beer in spite of not really blowing my hair back with a new take on the style.

stevoj (1701) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 12, 2014
Hops dominate, as expected. Nice amber body with creamy head. Hops are smooth, piney, some buttery taste. Dry bitter finish.

Gold pour with a white head. Piney, bitter, florals, dry malts. Easy palate, bitter, dough, florals, pine, not much else.

hockeybeerguy (909) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 2, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a slightly hazy semi orange/somewhat amber colored body with yellow highlights to help to make it fairly clear, thin white half finger foamy head that dies immediately leaving some adequate foamy sticky lacing in its wake. The smell had some coconut in the beginning (not sure where I’m gettin’ that, but that’s what I truly got) and after it warms a bit toasted piney caramel plays in my nose. The taste was somewhat bitter but still sweet through the malty bill that comes through, sticky caramel aftertaste, dry caramel finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium in body, fairly sessionable - pretty much as any DIPA could be, carbonated very well for the style. Overall, I say a pretty well done DIPA from No-Li, shout out to Breeze - In for gettin’ this in growler fills.

Good retention and good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, sweet malt, hop resin and lemon. Tastes of hop resin, grapefruit and pine. Light bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheGooch510 (13) - Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2014
I love IPAs. Especially doubles. This is BY FAR the best double IPA that I’ve ever had. Light malt body. Riddled with citrusy notes and a grapefruit flavor.

drsordr (890) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle pour dark gold. Nose citrus hop up front, some dank hop, then late in aroma a very sweet powdery malt, almost like powdered donuts. Taste bitter up front, followed by dank and alcohol. Late palate vague sweetness. Astringnet bitter finish.

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle, shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Orange amber, off white head. Caramel malt and pithy citrus share the palate equally, ending with astringent bitterness. Nothing shines here, not to mention that the hops seem a bit lacking for a DIPA. Wouldn’t come back to this one, given that there are about a million West Coast DIPAs out there, this one is pretty forgettable.

22oz bottle, mustard yellow label. Light amber color, rocky white foam. Aroma of hops resin, some caramel malts. Flavor is of sweet bready caramel malts. Well balanced with earthy hops. Finishes with hints of chocolate and flavor of honey. Creamy texture. (3981)

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Grassy, smoky nose. Flavors of pine resin and citrus. Medium bodied, bitter finish.
