Poured from a .5 lt bottle into a duvel glass

A: pours a very lightly hazed copper ruby with a fat two fingers of slightly tanned head.... Excellent retention and lacing, nice looking beer.

S: overall i find the aroma to be a bit on the mild side... There are some light citrusy/piney hops over a solid malt backbone... Hops come out more and more as the beer warms... Not a bad aroma, just wish it was a bit more pungent.... Turns out I'm gonna have to take all that back... The aroma really opens up as this room gets closer to room temp... Very nice.

T: much like the aroma. Nice hop notes right up front over a solid malt backbone. I get grapefruity citrus along with some nice piney notes from the hops. The malt contributes some nice lightly sweet bready notes. The hops are deffiantly the show case here.

M: on the heavy side of medium with a nice lush mouthfeel, dry and bitter on the finish with some earthy and piney hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

O: this is a nice ipa for a cold night, with just enough malt heft to balance out the hops... Another nice brew from jacks Abby. (1,094 characters)

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. (1,430 characters)
