Heard both good and not so good things about this brew so I was skeptical. Especially after loving BA Framinghammer....gotta say this is an absolutely exceptional beer. The aroma fills the room after pouring...a nice 1 inch white head....I'd never thought I'd use the description of 'grass' but that's a great descriptor....as well as a beautifully well balanced IPL...Great hop flavor with a delicious malt back bone....Thrilled that Jacks Abbey is here in NY! Well done!!

Bottle thanks to ILOVESTOUTS, served in a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: Hazy golden yellow. Really vibrant and almost glowing. Big two and a have finger fluffy, snow white head. Leaves tons of clean sticky lacing. Beautiful.

Smell: Big grapefruit, melon, and pine right off the bat. Some light breadyness, but barely. Not super big on the nose but really bright.

Taste: Woah. HUGE grapefruit, melons, and clean pine, followed by a deep citrus bitterness. Just bright all around. This beer is standout. A nice bread dough sweetness just supplements This is no where close to balance, and I love it.

Mouthfeel: It drinks like a Hill Farmstead DIPA. To me, that about the highest mouthfeel praise there is. Incredibly juicy, this beer approaches S&S5 levels of drinkability. Great bitterness, but in the raw fruit sense. Amazing.

Overall: This beer is better than nearly every DIPA I've ever had. Just a stellar beer in every regard. Jack's Abbey hit a grand slam here. I don't want this again, I NEED this again.
