BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jack's Abby Brewing
Massachusetts, United States
jacksabbybrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Pilsner

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is an intensely hoppy and strong lager that we refer to as a Double India Pale Lager. Over four pounds of hops per BBL of New Zealand hops (Kiwi Hops) were used in progressively larger hop additions throughout the brewing process. Four kettle hop additions, whole leaf hops in the hop back, and multiple dry hop additions infuse an intense floral and citrusy aroma. No kiwifruit or kiwi birds were used in the production of this beer.

Excellent beer that sets itself away from the other lagers. Taste is smooth - floral citrusy some may compare taste to that of an IPA. Feel & look draws this solid lager to the front of the line.

Pint can at Tria Rittenhouse in Philly. May not have been the freshest can...

Poured from a can dated 10/23/17 into the test glass
A - Sunflower yellow backdrop, active carbonation tops aout in a fine white cap
S - Sweet malt, then a trip to the tropics, lots of pineapple, some peach skin as well
T - Follows the nose well, excellent malt base, matched with fruit
M - Heavy as lagers go, a bit oily excellent carbonation, with a pleasant dry finish
O - A big hoppy IPL lives up to the billing.

16oz can, pours a thin golden haze with medium body. Floral and bright up front, but then almost immediately metallic and bitter. I've enjoyed it fresh on tap before, so maybe not a can-friendly brew.

A big thanks to the commander of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is floral, citrus, malts. Taste is citrus, herbal, some malts, a bit of alcohol is present. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is among the hoppiest lagers I have tried.
