Side of the label reads "MFG 03.28.2"
A: Golden-yellow with a big, fluffy, frothy, white head. A bit of haze because I let some of the sediment into the glass. Give it a swirl and the head explodes into fizzy, white bubbles that burst with hop aromas. There's a really cool cloudiness that forms right before the head builds, too. Very interesting appearance.
S: Huuuge tropical fruits, resin, and fruity hops.
T: As expected...big, delicious, fruity, sticky, resiny hops. Like seriously massive hops. Everything you want in a hoppy beer but with the finish and cleanliness of a lager.
M: Hop-splosion. Pretty dry but juicy and fruity at the same time. Such a joy to drink.
O: Another smooth, silky, hop bomb from Jack's Abby. A little more dry and in your face compared to Kiwi Rising but they're two very different beers. I had high expectations for this beer and I finished the bottle very satisfied.

I think this is a genius brew. its a german style pilsener lager, with a great dose of American hops. a beautiful fusion of styles. clear on the pour until the sediment layer is disturbed and it runs a little hazy. golden in color with a really active white head a few inches high and lacing up well. the nose is dusty german malts on the light side, and aggressive fruity fresh American hops plenty high in alpha acids. clean flavor too, with a floral side of the hops emerging, fresh and springy, a nice contrast to the fuller malt body for the style. jacks abby has effective redefined the American lager, and this might be their best beer to date. so much flavor, soft feel, and snappy hops with lager yeast, a great combo. everything they make is good, this one is fabulous.
