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.

ACHops (696) - 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.

Poured a medium amber with a lively, lacy head. Nose of flowers. In the mouth, the alcohol is well hidden, but nicely hoppy.

pinkzambia (1488) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Tap @ The Dam Bar & Grill: clear gold color with a small head and semi- sticky lacing. Earthy pleasant aroma with a solid hoppy backbone. Alcohol is masked well. Tasty and well done.

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a small finger of lacing that settles to reveal only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some caramel. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with some tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness underneath. A well crafted and potent DIPA that is definitely recommended.

7/18/14. Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a minimal head and lacing. Light hoppy nose. Taste definitely points up the source of the high IBUs. Interesting and complex hop profile barely held in check by the alcohol level. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong hoppy aroma and taste. The taste of hops left no room for additional flavor. Bite of bitterness at the end.

shrubber85 (7646) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Sweet orange malt and strong alcohol/acetone aroma. Hazy amber with small head. Sweet orange/peach malt and light bitter herbal orange peel flavor. Thankfully doesn’t taste nearly as harsh as the aroma.

bytemesis (3228) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle - thanks Brian! Pours hazy orange with a large off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly with decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, spruce, cardboard. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, buttery. Medium body, a bit harsh. Nondescript.

cblado (242) - Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice goldenrod color, some head, not much lacing. Aroma is mainly strong citrus hops, with some floral notes as well. Flavor is deliciously bitter hops up front with a good malt backbone. The palate is perfect for an imperial IPA, with a bit more thickness than a standard IPA. Overall this is a great beer, and I look forward to having a couple more!

ajnepple (2219) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2014
22 oz bottle on sale (old) at Coconuts. Cloudy darker orange appearance with a fluffy, lingering, sticky white head. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, citrus fruit, toasted grains and light toffee. Flavor is medium to heavy resiny bitterness and light grainy sweetness. Medium plus body, a little thick and almost syrupy with a somewhat dry, lingering bitter finish. OK, not too fresh of bottle most likely. Hard to drink.
