Yet another great beer from Jacks Abby. The one pours the standard yellowy amber clear lager thing. The smell is piney, hoppy, nutty, with a little funk almost bretty-saisony. The flavor is more strident hops and resiny dank nuggs with more of a lagery mouthfeel to it than Jacks Abby’s other IPL style offerings, which lean more aleish in taste usually despite the categorization. Still this one is very good, if not quite as good as I remember it being after having Excess IPL and Kiwi Rising. Good for smoky room italo disco jams on the nicest day of the year in anticipation of your beloveds belated return.

tekstr1der (476) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 24, 2017
Canned 04/03. Clear golden pour with intensely sticky finger of white. Light fruits and a hint of spice on the nose belying the 100 IBUs. Flavor is just fantastic. Definitely a hop bomb most of the journey through the sip, but offset by the lightness and bready malt flavor. Finish is very clean for as bitter as this gets mid-sip. Another really solid offering from Jack’s.

Draft at Harbor Bar, Whole Foods Bryant Park. Mostly clear golden pour. Frothy off-white head and plenty of lacing. Fruity and grassy, some pale malt notes. Tastes hoppy, fruity, and bitter. Drinks soft with a strong, dry finish. Good stuff.

glennmastrange (2807) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted grain for the malt, light orange and herbs for the hops, faint soap for the yeast, with over ripe pear, pepper and peach liqueur in the background. Head is average size, frothy turning wispy, white, with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark murky amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then the long finish is moderately sweet and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a soft to lively carbonation and a moderately astringent finish. A higher end Imperial Pils for sure, but not much my style.
