4.08/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

4.5- Pours a beautiful hazy light golden color. Big, lasting, pillowy head. Leaves some incredible lacing.

4.5- Very fresh hoppiness. Grapefruit, citrus, mango, tropical. Hint of sweet malt.

4- Has a great floral hop taste upfront (usually used to describe the scent but thats just how it tastes), all the citrus and tropical fruits that i got in the nose are present, the lager yeast definitely adds a new and interesting dynamic, a touch of grain. Touch of alcohol but id never have guessed it was 8.5%.

3.5- Has a sort of drying/bitter quality like grapefruit juice (which isnt a bad thing), higher end of medium carbonation level that works great for this beer. My only wish would be for a heavier body to it. Its very very drinkable which is awesome but for a "double IPA" (or IPL I should say) I think the body should be a little bigger and heavier.

4- Overall this is an awesome beer. Very glad my girlfriend picked this one out at the store. Brewing this as a lager opposed to an ale was a great idea. Pretty unique and it worked out well! Definitely one of the best beers I've had to date thats come out of my home state of MA.

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.
