Estebanik (890) - Lublin, POLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Piana niezbyt wysoka, znika dość szybko. W aromacie generalnie sam chmiel - cytrusy, trawiaste klimaty i truskawka, która w miarę ogrzewania zaczyna dominować resztę bukietu. W smaku wytrawne, rześkie, o czystym profilu. Wysycenie średnie w stronę wysokiego, pasuje. Goryczka zaznaczona, bardzo krótka. Super pijalne, piłbym na sześciopaki.

Calyptra fills 2 niche categories for Jack’s Abby. It’s an IPL and a Session beer (The can I drank had a lower ABV than the one listed here - 4.9%). It pours gold with white suds. Interestingly, Calyptra captures more of the dank side of Calypso and Citra. For me, that came as a pleasant surprise. Cereal grain and earthy hop aroma. Calyptra tastes like bread, grass, and honeydew. Crisp finish with a bit of lingering peppery spice. I haven’t really had anything else like it.

HuskerTan (1844) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Can. A- Mildew, grassy, citrus. A- Gold color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Dank, subtle bitterness, citrus. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, grassy finish. O- Wasn’t sure what this would be like going in. With the hops used, I was hoping for a loaded juicy refreshing beer. Definitely much more bitter and grassy than I thought it would be. A bit let down.

PhillyCraft (6448) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Tap at Sanchos with Eric and Katie, Pours a clear golden with small white head. Malty honey and light lager grain. Weak stuff for JAcks Abby, maybe it was old or changed temps a couple times? Wasn’t that hoppy or lagery?

ben4321 (6001) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Can from Milk and Hops, as Calyptra Session IPL. Sort of a hazy yellowish-gold pour with a nice, fizzy, egg shell head and some solid lacing. Melon and citrus, some yeast, dough, and a bit of spice. Finishes somewhat dry. Malt backbone holds up pretty well to the hops. Fizzy feel, with a long, clean, tingly finish. Not a world class beer, but way above serviceable.

DocLock (10205) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Can from Whole Foods PM. Pours bright and turbid golden with frothy, white head. Nose is bright and juicy, hoppy, with grapefruit, pineapple, melon. Tastes hoppy, bready, pale malty, with some melon, peach, and floral, spicy notes as it warms.

brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Can @ Maple Leaf Motel. Yellow beer with a white head. This is some good stuff. Super fruity aroma of cantaloupe, honeydew, grapefruit, and lemon. A nice touch of sweet orange to go with it, too. The malt profile here is pretty nice, and a good mouthfeel, which is sometimes lacking in these hoppy, light, US lagers. Nice biscuity, chewy malt character. Slightly dry on the finish. Plenty of citrus, melon, and even slightly tropical hop flavor with just enough bitterness. This is a nice beer.
