COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal; Autumn - Released in November.
This is an intensely hoppy and strong lager that we refer to as a Double India Pale Lager. Over four pounds of hops per BBL of New Zealand hops (Kiwi Hops) were used in progressively larger hop additions throughout the brewing process. Four kettle hop additions, whole leaf hops in the hop back, and multiple dry hop additions infuse an intense floral and citrusy aroma. No kiwifruit or kiwi birds were used in the production of this beer.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2016 Another masterpiece DIPL from Jack’s Abby. The Kiwi hops add an absolutely delicious spicy pepper flavor. The aroma is good but not great and the palate and body are solid despite the beer looking very pale in the glass.

reggiedunlop (3680) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Pours clear gold with a huge pillowy white head...great retention and lacing. Aroma is slightly boozy and has a good bit of melon...some hoppy spice...touch of fruit. Flavor is even more boozy...firm bitterness...resinous...earthy malts. Mouthfeel is medium/full with a dry, resinous finish.

Clear waffle yellow pour with a ring of white foam The nose - melon, orange juice, tropical melange. On the palette, crisp and sugary, medium bodied The backbone has a dry coating of flour, which seems odd to me

My first Double IPL...let’s see where the bar is set. Poured from a large can. Golden colour- on the lighter side. Big fluffy white head. The aroma...dear lord the aroma. Very fresh, very clean. Citrusy and fruity. Taste is nice, very well balanced. Those fruity hops (tropical) come to play but there is a malty sweetness that is there as well. It’s really, really good. I had no heads up going into this and WOW how pleasantly surprised I am. This is freaking good.

Hazy yellow body with a soapy white cap. Aromas of sourdough bread, lager yeast, citrus hops. A balanced beer, with sufficient hop character atop a robust malt bill. Light to medium bitterness. Tasty!
