Wow. I will come right out and say it - this beer blew me away. I had pretty high expectations going in - and this surpassed them.
Poured a beautiful hazy golden color. Very bright and refreshing looking. Some sediment visible but barely.
Smells of delicious fresh hops, some alcohol, and citrus fruit. Very pungent and flowery. Almost a sweet-tartish smell to it as well.
Taste is incredible. Wow. Super fresh tasting - definitely a presence of pine and grapefruit. I pick up some bitter tea tastes as well. Truly complex and delicious. Awesome.
Mouth-feel is spot on for the style. Alcohol burn can be slightly detected but is pleasant.
Wow. I love this beer. This is up there with some of the more mainstream favorites such as Heady Topper and Pliny the Elder. Incredible beer. The fact that it is fermented as a lager adds a level of crispness that I find amazing.
Well done. Well, well done.

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.
