Purchased a bottle from the brewery a few days ago. First to review it, had a sample at the brewery and knew I needed to buy some. According to bottle its a "Hopback Lager" with munich malt, and styrian, centennial, Columbus and palisade hops. Sign me up.


A: Pours a crystal clear, deep copper, thin head dissipated quickly. Could be a slightly dirty glass.

S: Big fresh grapefruit hops, definitely can smell the Centennial+Columbus. Incredibly pungent considering the long time needed to ferment a lager.

T: Initial taste is a big wave of bitter grapefruit and piney hops. Has a nice malty backbone with notes of brown bread, molasses, maybe even rye. Has that "red" malt flavor to it, a bit tea like. Finishes with a dry spicy, herbal, resins, floral dank, and refreshing hop bite. As i continue to drink it gets greener and spicier. Great balance of malt sweetness and bitterness, very clean tasting (no yeast or off notes).

M: Lots of carbonation, creamy, a bit oily, but has that lager crisp/lightess.

O: I really like this beer. Great hop aroma and flavor, rich malt backbone that holds its own, yet not palate dominating. Would make an excellent session beer. One of Jack's best offerings. This was pretty tough to classify, Rate beer says imperial pilsner, with Munich malts though I definitely consider this an amber or red. Maybe an India Red Lager? Sounds crazy but its awesome, highly recommended.
