Shaker pint

A. Transparent amber. Foamy cream colored head. Slow fade. Fat lacing.

S. Cut grass. Hops for miles. Flowery scent. Pine resin. So fresh and outstanding.

T. Hoppy. Caremel malt. Tropical fruit. Orange peel. Bitter spicey finish.

M. Medium. Nice body. Little carbo. Finishes nice and smooth.

O. Great. Balanced perfectly. Super hoppy with a nice thick backbone. My favorite FW so far.

355ml bottle poured into tulip 3/8/13 thanks Ian for the bottle

A golden yellow liquid with tiny bubbles feeding a thumbs width of foam that has great retention leaving several partial rings deep down the glass

S floral and tropical, mango, tangerine, pineapple and lemon with some pine and caramel popping up here and there, smells the part

T more rind and pine then in the mouth and less floral and tropical notes, no complaints but the nose had a little something over the flavor

M medium full with a nice bitter snap, very slick on the palate almost slimy and just a little sticky on the lips, lingering pine and lemon rind just keeps going

O well hidden booze and well rounded, could pass for a DIPA in my books or at least an IPA and a half, went down in no time

I have a feeling the Double Jack in my fridge is going to be a palate wrecker, I'd drink this on a regular basis if I could get my hands on it with ease
