12oz picked up tonight at Brewer's Haven Boise on the way home from work... Pours a fairly clear dark golden/light orangish.... decent white head... great lacing.

Nose is pretty standard/average DIPA territory... piney essence with some grapefruit pith back.... cracker malt/dry toast maltiness carries the hops... balanced, but too heavy toward the malt to really grab my attention.

Flavor doesn't have nearly big enough bitter bite to be in the DIPA category, especially in the PNW... instead almost an orange juice essence spiked with pithy zest is the hop big player... again, it seems too malty with a pretty substantial pale malt presence from front to back.

Body is right... carbonation is on the light side for the style.

Really, this is a pretty okay beer... no real flaws... but anybody calling their beer a DIPA nowadays has some benchmarks to live up to and this bottle just barely skates by.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden amber with a fine, three finger off-white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, sweet biscuit malt, light piney hops. Flavor follows aroma, nice citrus and fruit based malt body with pine and citrus hops, finishing with semisweet malt and lngering citrus hops. Medium bodied with nice sharp carbonation. A nicely balanced slightly sweet malty IIPA with a pleasant hop choice. I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did and would not hesitate to buy this again.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big lemon/lime zest, grapefruit, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, herbal, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of bright citrus/pine hops and light-moderate malt balance; with great strength. Taste of lemon/lime zest, orange peel, grapefruit, floral, grass, pine resin, herbal, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine/floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/lime zest, orange peel, grapefruit, floral, grass, pine resin, herbal, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity of bright citrus/pine hops with light-moderate malt presence; with a very crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and resinous sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice DIPA. All around good balance and complexity of resinous citrus/pine hops and light-moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

After their 7% ipa which was really good I had high hopes for this. Given the 8.1% it seems odd that 1% makes this imperial but we'll see.

The pour doesn't provide a huge amount of head. The body is tangerine and golden.

There's a huge amount of ruby grape fruit with a done of sugar and malt.

Passion fruit, ruby grape fruit, caramel, and artificial sweetener. This isn't very good.

Jet Star drinks like a double IPA even though it's rather low in alcohol for the style.

This is a huge pass and just isn't good. There's a fake sugar off flavor in here that's killing this one for me.
