3.69/5  rDev +21.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle dated first week of September 2014. Poured into an O'so snifter 9/30/2014.

A- Hazy copper-yellow body. Very impressive thick two finger white head that continues to replenish itself from within to make for an incredibly long retention time. Lots of thick lacing left as time goes on. [4]

S- Pine resin, hop oils, crackers, grainy pale malt sweetness. Honey sweetness. Nothing too complicated. [3.5]

F- Syrupy honey sweetness hits the palate first, followed by grainy malt, caramel, toffee sweetness, finished off by a thick, resinous and dank pine bitterness. This is pretty solid, reminds me more of an East Coast-style IPA rather than the more prevalent West Coast-style IPA. [3.75]

M- Medium bodied, a bit on the thick, syrupy side. Quite bitter with a resinous, slightly pine-accented finish. Actually quite effervescent and peppy on the tongue. [3.5]

O- I didn't like Bubblejack that much, so I was hesitant to try this, but hey, I had to fill out the last slot in my mixed 6-pack. And you know what? This is a pretty solid Imperial India Pale Ale with plenty of grainy pale malt sweetness tempered by a nice pine resin bitterness. [3.75]

Final score: 3.69
