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.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2013
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.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours amber with a lively off white head. The nose has robust herbal hop notes. Those herbals translate to the palate with a bit of cotton candy. Medium bodied with a medium finish. Pretty good.

Sammer (1047) - Plano, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Taste is citrus, pine, grain, hops and charred wood, with a nice hint of booze at the finish. Solid IPA.

Beerandhockey8 (232) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - OCT 4, 2014
From 12oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a nice golden orange with a medium white head. Nose is big hop, malt, caramel, dark fruits. Taste is medium bodied, very bitter with slight touches of sweetness. Thicker feel with a little carbonated finish. Nice imperial.

legion242 (2223) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Poured a medium amber with a lively, lacy head. Nose of flowers. In the mouth, the alcohol is well hidden, but nicely hoppy.

pinkzambia (1505) - 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 (4239) - 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.

Enwiebe (143) - - JUL 20, 2014
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

Golden pour with an off white head. Strong floral aroma with hints of citrus. flavor was fairly sweet with a backend bitterness. Not my favorite Imp. IPA..

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

shrubber85 (7732) - 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.
