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.

Bottle courtesy of pjdipes. 22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body supporting a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts with a dash of biscuit malts mixing with resiny pine hops and some citrus hard candy notes. The taste delivers rich deep chewy notes that are grapefruit and tangerine as well as resiny pine hop goodness with a decent enough base of sweet malts. The malts fade some into the finish leaving pleasing rich hoppiness lingering behind. Enjoyable IIPA.

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 (147) - 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 (580) - 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 (4879) - 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 (3988) - 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 (407) - 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 (2006) - 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 (522) - 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.

Bottle. Thick foamy head, fairly clean amber appearance. Hoppy and sweet, a somewhat interesting IPA.
