Bottle to Lawson's sniffer
A: it is a orangey honey color that is very cloudy with a few hope floaters and a thick white head that goes away quickly
S: it smells like tropical fruit bomb there is melon and it has a sweetness that I might not go to if it wasn't in the name but kiwi it's not quite citrusy and there is no malt.
T: there is a lot of fresh hop flavors it's very crisp it's grassy and though I don't like term like a farm house ale. There is some citrusy notes that stay there all the way through the finish which is full of hop bitterness
M: it is fairly smooth, very oily and very thin. It is crisp and fairly drinkable which I like as most lagers are too flat for me this resembles an ipa in feel but staying true to a lager
O:I liked this beer a lot and I usually hate lagers but this has many ipa qualities which is a huge benefit for me. It is pretty tastey looks, smells great and had a real good mouthfeel not just standard local fair a really good beer and it reps mass well.

Have definitely had this one before, but the review must be lost in a note book somewhere...nonetheless, this is now available locally! HUZZAH! Enjoyed from a jacks abby snifter.
Brew pours a lush transparent orange yellow with a generous frothy ipa like head.
Nose is fruity hops. Tropical and citric. Lager you say?
Taste is more of the same, fantastic tropical fruit over a soft lager. No grain in the taste, just fresh hop. Feels like a grainy ipa.
Smooth and super drinkable. Could drink this all day and all night.
Overall, jacks abby doesnt disappoint. Great brewery making lagers formthe craft beer drinker. Mfloral, hoppy, wonderful.
