L - A thin white head rests on a murky, light orange body. There is a nice, subtle lacing that follows the beer but, for the most part, is a very unassuming beer.

S - After one whiff, you know this is a substantial DIPL... A big kick of citrus and mango hit you right off the bat. The sweetness doesn't taper off, though, instead it finds a deeper root, almost like a syrup.

T - Very complex palette, as the smell implies. It's very sweet but there is a vanilla and nuttiness here, as well. Very well balanced... I've had this beer all season and never have had a bad batch. Lingering aftertaste that reminds you of the 8.5%

F - The lingering effect isn't everyone's cup of tea - but with DIPLs, this is part of the game. The beer is very full without being too much. Anyone could sip at this and enjoy it thoroughly.

O - Exceptional lager here. No surprise coming from Jack's Abbey, one of the most consistent breweries in MA. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Very off tasting brew, a strange funk that was not expected. Bottle has been stored properly and appeared fine. Mouthfeel was quite thin and color was quite unappealing. Bitterness was mild for such a high ibu, just an overpowering off taste.

A solid beer. Extremely smooth and drinkable. Very crisp and clean on the taste, with a bit of hoppy grapefruit goodness on the back end.

Good lagers are my simple pleasure and this is a great hoppy lager with Southern Hemi hops, which are some of my favorite. I am drinking the bottle 1.5 months after bottling but I believe hoppy lagers fall off slower than certain IPA/DIPA culprits. Would I rather have a fresh IPA w Nelson, Galaxy, or other Southern Hemi hop? Yes. Is this a good, enjoyable hoppy lager? Most definitely.
