Bottle thanks to BobZ poured into a Hill Farmstead taster.
Pour: Bright, mostly clear orange with a finger of sticky, frothy white head. Lots of lacing through out, and even a bit of alcohol coating.
Smell: Right from opening the bottle, big burst of resinous pine and bright citrus. Very slick with hop oils, even on the nose. Dank, lightly grassy. A touch of bready malt and a light waft of lager yeast.
Taste: Follows the nose with an aggressive hoppy pine, tangerine, and grassiness. Quite bitter, more so than I expected. More doughy sweetness in the middle, and a touch of honey. Finishes bitter with pine.
Mouthfeel: Bitterness cuts down on the drinkability, but still refreshing. No trace of alcohol.
Overall: Another impressive lager from Jack's Abby. Drinks like an DIPA. Thanks Bob!

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.
