Finally get to review this gem.
A Gigantic white 2 finger billows toward the top of the glass and had great retention. The body is a hazy straw yellow with a hint of orange and has active carbonation rushing to the head. as the head slowly dies down sticky lace is left down the side of the glass and a fat foam pillow is left above the beer. Looks fantastic and can already smell it.
S Sweet tropical fruits and a subtle malt are the first thing I notice. Bitter grapefruit and pineapple along with some orange zest round out the nose.
T Mirrors the nose perfectly. Nice piney bitterness upfront that carries to the finish along with some grapefruit and tropical fruits like pineapple and some sweeter fruits. Finish is tropical and bitter with a bitter linger. Galaxy comes through nicely, stuff is top notch..
M Medium to lighter feel with medium to slightly heavy carbonation. Very clean and crisp finish makes this quite enjoyable to drink.
O Really nice DIPA.. err DIPL.. Whatever you want to call this stuff it's fantastic stuff, but thats nothing new for Jack's Abby

Thanks to Jlindros and Rudzud for this one
App- A solid orange with some mixed golds and yellows. For some reason the head on this one was huge. A giant 3 finger puffy white long lasting head. Generous cling down the glass.
Smell- A solid mix of lager and IPA. A bit of tropical notes with a generous lager yeast aroma came wofting up to greet the noise. Slightly grainular as well.
Taste- I thought this was a good beer. I wanted to like it more, but I think the New Zealand hops arent my favorite variety. I thought the mix of IPA and lager was subtle and the grainular nose followed the beer in the taste department. Good but wanted more.
Mouth- A wet drinking beer but this was a bit of a softer medium body with a light feel behind. Residual grain and some tropical fruits.
Drink- Its a solid beer and I like jacks abbys, I just wanted to like this one more.
