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.

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

Jaune brumeux avec une petite robe blanche. L’arôme est du pin et agrumes. En bouche c’est d’abord un peu sucré puis une amertume forte avec une finition assez sec. Très bonne.

Ed5388 (2756) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2015
22oz bomber from HBT trade. Drank after work with Tom and Brian. Pours a clear orange color with small foamt white head. Aroma of caramel malt, old citrus, marzipan, and some floral hops. Taste of pine, rotted citrus zest, caramel malt, and grass. Don’t see a bottled on date. Seems a little past its prime perhaps.

Bottle from Grocery Outlet. Clear medium copper in color. Lightly hopped nose with a little fruitiness. Hoppy flavor with quite a bit of sweetness. Some spicy hop fruitiness in the finish. Drinkable impy.

From a bomber pours golden orange color. Smell is great sweet and fruity maybe orange or citrus. Nice mouthfeel with bitter finish but not overly. Very good.

mambossa (212) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle to snifter, thick honey-gold pour with top-notch head retention. Aroma is huge; sticky passion fruit, a viscous Simcoe pine, sugar, over-ripe fruit, an indescribable prickly earth against the sweetness. Smells so familiar yet can’t put a name to it. Taste is a massive and round citrus with a sticky, sappy pine. Fairly big mouthfeel, borderline raisiny, even some barleywine notes picked up. Strawberry hints linger among the resinous finish. Very interesting!!

Bartzilla (590) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Really good dipa from the northwest. Seems to exhibit more pungent characteristics from SoCal with less emphasis on the malt. Easy drinker with a solid kick. 2nd beer I’ve tried form this brewery and it did not disappoint. Spokane is weird. They have naked coffee drive thrus all over the place. Just thought I’d add that in case you’re ever in the area and need a cup of Yawn Be Gone. Anyway, great beer.

jkwood04 (5058) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of floral and lightly fruity/citrusy hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same but sort of bitter. Average texture. A decent imperial IPA, but not like the East Coast examples of the style I love.

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle in Baltimore. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is fruity, somewhat floral, a hint of resin and some pine. Flavor is fruity bitter, some grains, a hint of rye, citrus and slightly spicy. Nice and balanced IPA, a bit rough, but well drinkable.

Evolutionary (423) - 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.
