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.

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

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.
