Pours from the 4.99 (!) pint bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store into my Hill Farmstead stemware.

Pours a golden yellow, shimmering. Well carbonated and crisp looking.

Smells incredible- pine, peach, mango.

Tastes even better- the aforementioned flavors shine, especially the peach and mango. Not much malt, slightly crackery if anything. Very crisp, bitter finish keeps the pure hop flavors clean and refreshing. Doesn't taste at all like the 8.5% ABV.

Light body, great carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel.

Probably my favorite Jack's Abby offering. Well worth the bargain price it goes for.

Enjoyed on tap at the Armsby Abbey. This is a double IPL (Indian pale lager). Adding this as a dortmunder as their other hoppy offering was classified as such. This was brewed exclusively with New Zealand hops (I was told Pacific Jade and a few others).

A - Poured into a standard snifter a hazy golden orange with a very creamy half a finger of off white head that leaves rich side lacing and a nice creamy blanket.

S - Wow was the first feeling that coursed through my brain upon putting my nose to the snifter. Super fresh aroma of what is New Zealand hops. Smells almost like citra hops; no pine at all lots of citrus (grapefruit, orange, and tangerine). Very light crystal like malt sweetness mixed in as well. Wow.

T - Wow again. Is this really just New Zealand hops? Loads of fresh citrus on the tongue. The grapefruit rind is much more subtle, instead I get huge orange notes. Lots of orange rind but the biggest thing for me is it tastes almost like a Clementine. Reminds me of childhood, using my teeth to start peeling a Clementine. The bitterness and slight oil from the rind followed by the sweet citrus acidic mouthful of juice that would wash over my tongue. There is a very light bitterness at the finish. That lack of a super bitter finish, truely this is a Jack's Abby larger.

M - Smooth very creamy mild carbonation. This is crazy...8.5%?! Get the hell out of here with that. I'd maybe, maybe believe 5% but 8.5% no goddamn way. This is a snifter of orange juice!

O - Overall I like this beer so much I can't stand up from the bar in fear of being arrested for indecent exposure. What the hell guys. Why...why make a beer this good, this surprising. If lagering an IPA turns it into this symphony then all breweries should play these notes. I would drink this over any nondark beet any day of the week. This is truey something magical get this while it lasts everyone because as Cinderella said: "You don't know what you've got till its gone."

Bright straw/golden color with a thick lacing white head of foam. Hops hit big up front with a nice white wine and orange blossom note. Taste has that lager crispness with a touch of bread and cereal grain. Hops are present in the flavor, but with a subtle bitterness. Carbonation level is high and the mouth feel is very clean and just the right weight on the tongue. Finished with a touch of grain and some lingering slightly vegetal hops.

The beer comes in a very slightly hazy light orange color with a huge huge egg white head with little bubbles. A very frothy head, not something I've seen before.

The aroma has a powdery sweet tropical aroma of mango, pineapple, tons of citrus peel, a bit of white bread malt.

The flavor follows of that tropical note, then onto an aggressive citrus peel and pith and grassiness (maybe Motueka in there). There' s a bit of white bread maltiness. The finish is a bit bitter, but extremely dry of hop juiciness. The beer is very hoppy, but without a distinct hop note that stands out. Instead, it balances the malt, the hop juice, and lager very well. There's a bit of that metallic lager note on the back. Alcohol extremely well hidden and drinks like a 6-7% beer.

The beer is very crisp and hoppy.

A really interesting brew. Great that it stands out as an DIPL instead of trying to replicate some other DIPAs.

FINALLY.

A-Pours a hazy brilliant golden color. Head is thick and doughy. Head retains with intimidating stature. This puppy laces all over the place. Looks excellent, and I can even smell it from about 2 feet away...

S-This one is exquisite. Lager yeast lends a rich and buttery aroma. Just like buttered buns from a restaurant. Then, the (I think I am right) Nelson Sauvin hops just floor my senses. Nelson Sauvin may be the easiest hop aroma to detect. Unbelievably detailed tropical hoppiness. Pineapple, apricot, canteloupe and honeydew. Light mango and sweet citrus. Awesome.

T-Flavor matches the aroma in many aspects but It is a bit more vegetal and grassy. Just a tropical fruit cornucopia. Piña Colada. Light cookie malt and Lager yeastiness. The New Zealand hops are so damn exotic and fruity but it also has this crazy earthy and veggie aspect to it. Back to the point; this lager is phenomenal.

M-Booze hidden excellently. Moderate to high bitterness. Flavor lasts forever. Zipping carbonation. Lightly resinous.

O/D-The "Double India Pale Lager" is better than 90-95% of the DIPAs I have had. I love the Nelson Sauvin hop (still pretty certain this is the correct varietal) and I love how they utilized its flavors in this beer. Jack's Abby is the best brewery in MA and is up there with the best in the country in my opinion. Don't let their specific niche-brewing deter you; these lagers are unequivocally world class!

Big, fluffy whitish cap from a gentle pour. Tons of clumpy lacing, good head retention. The beer was hazy, yellow gold. Fruity aroma, orange and lemon, grassy and a bit tropical. Nice flavour. Hops are in full force, tropical (mango and pineapple) up front, a bit of citrus mid-palate, then bitterness and a hint of spicy alcohol in the finish. Malt was really just there to provide some balance. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Really enjoyable and quite drinkable.

thanks to egrace for gifting me this beer! Thanks elliot!

Bottle is dated November 2012 on the side of the label.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy golden blonde bodied beer with 2 fingers of head. Lots of lacing and good head retention. Great looking lager, I honestly cant remeber the last lager that i drank that looked this good. Seriously.

Smell: bright citrus and tropical fruits. A hint of bananas and fruitiness. Bready and yeasty notes too. Hints of garlic and onion.

Taste: Its a beer that is fairly balanced, but the hops tip the scale a bit more than malt profile. The beer is somewhere between mild to moderately bitter. Tropical fruits and floral hops are pretty big here. Also a touch earthy. Pine and citrus are abundant as well. Onions, garlic, and grassy hops seem to float around. Malts are fairly bready, but also grainy and cracker like. Mild lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: low end of a medium bodied beer. Moderately carbonated. The beer is really crisp and clean, yet it is also got a creamy and slightly resinous / oily mouthfeel. Carbonation is lively, but not prickly or ticklish. You would not think this beer is almost 9%, it drinks closer to 6% abv.

Overall: I have never had an Imperial Pilsner before. The hops dont really give this beer a chance to be a regular pilsner, but I dont care because this is a tasty beer. This is my second favorite Jack Abby's beer and they make some wonderful hoppy beers! i am impressed again by Abby Jack's. But Hoponius Union is still my favorite. You can think of Kiwi Rising as bigger version of Hoponius Union. My favorite aspect of this beer is how unique the hop profile is... its true unique.

The last of my mixed six pack from the East coast. I can't find a bottled on date, but this smells and tastes fresh.

Pouring a light, clear yellow with a dense, white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this is a top notch IPL. The nose is singular. The kiwi hop is off the chain! Spicy with a blend of turmeric, coriander seed and a little cumin, there's a touch of cat pee, some light fruitiness, a little tropical, as well. Wild stuff. Pepper too? Wow. It's got characteristics of simcoe and Amarillo, bit is still so...unique. Malt character is nonexistent here. Awesome. Along with this is a big fruity character, citrusy, bright, refreshing, clarifying, complex and wonderful.

The palate opens with a big, juicy, fruity hop character, light, tropical, airy and surprisingly enough, like a kiwi in some respects. Really though, this is a blend of citron, mangosteen and a little pineapple. Interestingly enough, the spiciness that I picked up on the nose isn't particularly noticeable, though this is definitely on the spicier side of IPLs I've had. The mid palate brings out some bitterness, with a blend of hand of Buddha-like brilliant, clarifying brightness and a very focused citrus resin bite. Very clean, this beer finishes with flavors of honey, simple syrup and a mild bitterness. Alcohol is very well hidden, there is no way I'd peg this at 8%. Malt character is nonexistent. This is one of the more memorable beers I've had this year. Outrageously good.

Bottle opened on 6.28.13

Bottled Nov 2012, Yikes!

A - Pours a hazy, very light orange-almost yellow with a huge cream-colored soapy head with good retention.

S - Fruity, hard to place. Citrus and some lager yeast come through as well.

T - Malty, floral, and some grass.

D - Good carbonation and a light body.

O - Still a good beer, but I would love to try a fresh one.

500ml bottle served in a pilsner glass. MFG. 11.11.2013 printed on the label. Pours a beautiful translucent honey-gold with a dense, four-fingered bright white head. Copious tiny bubbles are present effervescing in-solution from the base of the glass to the underside of the head. Head eventually settles into a two-finger cap with delicate, textured bands to lacing revealed in the wake. Nose expresses grains, a hint of skunk and aromas akin to white wine. Taste consistent with nose; however, the kiwi definitely expresses itself in the flavor profile (more towards the tart side of the spectrum). There's a also a slight piney/floral hops presence and a kiss of ethanol bittering towards the back. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a pleasant, even carbonation and a slightly oily texture. Overall, a great beer, but not as good as I remember. Nonetheless, well worth your time if the opportunity presents.

A- Cloudy apricot orange body poured into a tulip. Creamy white head with a frothy look forms and has decent retention. Sticky legs and few small spots of lace.

S- Fresh hops yielding apricot, peach, citrus, pineapple tea and floral notes. Not quite as strong as a IIPA but I get the picture.

T- Let it warm up some and it's quite nice. Hop forward with a balancing caramel grainy finish. Hops give white grape, peach, apricot sweets, citrus, herbal tea, pepper and floral notes.

MF- Silky creamy body with low-moderate carbonation. Slightly bitter and sweet finish on the palate.

Glad to see a very local brewery making a hoppy but unique beer. Doesn't just emulate your usual IIPA, the hops here are smooth and fruity flavorful.

Pour is lightly hazed pale golden orange with a ton of tight white head. Nose is strong, presents a nice balance of assertive grains, lightly toasty with notes of bread and a touch of dough. Very strong hops behind, grassy and strong citrus and tart grapefruit. Taste is even more juicy hops, still has a solid grain bill, bread crust mixed with dough. Hops are juicy and bright, tropical fruits and some tart grapefruit, assertive bitterness through the finish. Clean airy body with strong carbonation, great stuff.

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a pint glass. This was bottled less than 2 weeks ago.

Appearance: Pours a pretty clear amber/gold and leaves a couple fingers of white head which hangs around for a while. Plenty of carbonation can be seen flying from the bottom of the beer to the surface. Lots of lacing.

Smell: A nice balanced combination of pine and citrus hops. Quite aromatic - I can smell this from several feet away. Mainly hops in the smell, but there is a little malt in the background.

Taste: Delicious, floral hops yet with a big enough yet mild malt backbone. Pine with some mild citrus are the main players. Extremely drinkable. Alcohol is expertly masked, tastes more like 5-6% IPA.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly creamy body. Matches the style very well. Very drinkable body with a crisp finish.

Overall: Really well balanced and super high drinkability with lots of fantastic flavor. This is definitely a go-to IPA. Really refreshing and a very well crafted brew.

Pours light and filtered, like all of JA's other brews. This one is yellow-orange with a small white head.

Smells of aggressive Nelson Sauvin hops, the aroma of which could easily be mistaken for west coast American varieties. The hops dominate, but are balanced nicely by a bready grain profile.

Tastes great. Hops start out with more typical grapefruit and citrus nodes but there's a distinct white-white flavor that becomes more present as the beer warms. Very nice, and combines excellently with the crisp grain profile.

A-Clear yellow, three finger head that leaves nice lacing.

S-Rather tropical, some wheat, nice hop presence. Some spice and lemon.

T-Starts with lots of tropical/citrus note via the NZ hops. Nice bitterness but the finish is bland and lacing. There is some spice and wheat in there.

M-Lighter in body, crisp finish with nice carbonation.

O-The hops start out great but then nothing. The finish is bland.

Have definitely had this one before, but the review must be lost in a note book somewhere...nonetheless, this is now available locally! HUZZAH! Enjoyed from a jacks abby snifter.

Brew pours a lush transparent orange yellow with a generous frothy ipa like head.

Nose is fruity hops. Tropical and citric. Lager you say?

Taste is more of the same, fantastic tropical fruit over a soft lager. No grain in the taste, just fresh hop. Feels like a grainy ipa.

Smooth and super drinkable. Could drink this all day and all night.

Overall, jacks abby doesnt disappoint. Great brewery making lagers formthe craft beer drinker. Mfloral, hoppy, wonderful.

Big thanks goes out to MSquared2 for sharing this one during one of our random Sunday tastings! Served from bottle into Sweetwater 15th Anniversary snifter. Poured a hazy golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, citrus, citrus hop, tropical fruit, and pineapple. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, tropical fruit, tropical fruit hop, citrus, and pine hop. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. Another brew from this brewery and another hit. Everything on this one really worked in complete harmony and unison to make it very easy to drink and refreshing. The tropical fruit profile going on was nothing short of awesome on this one. So glad that I finally found out about this brewery . I hope you get the chance to do the same.

22oz bottle into nonic pint. Thanks, Michael.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy citrus gold with a couple fingers of bright white head that faded into a lasting film that left a ton of sticky lacing down the glass.
S: Light notes of pine needles, grass, earth and a bit of citrus. Peppery.
T: Follows the nose with a big hop flavor. Citrus shines through, lemon, along with earthy yeast, citrus pith, bready dough, and a touch of sweet fruit. A hoppy lager if there was one.
M: Thicker than expected body, thick and fluffy mouthfeel with creamy carbonation.
O: Easy to drink, thick, with a good hoppy flavor. Worth checking out if you’re into a hoppy chance of pace.

A: A very cloudy golden pour, nice fluffy offwhite head and great lacing/retention.

S: WOW. Hop explosion in my nose not unlike a huge DIPA. Tons of grapefruit and tropical fruit like pineapple and mango. I'm not sure if this has simcoe in it but the pleasant cat urine odor is there in spades. Maybe a bit of pine too? Can't stop smelling this one.

T: More hop craziness. Lots of grapefruit and a little tropical fruit as you would expect. Not as bitter as I expected. Not to say that it's NOT bitter, I just expected a puckering wave of bitterness. Surprisingly well balanced, borderline sweet even - the hops cut it nicely though. Some pine resin is apparent in the aftertaste and carries nicely.

M: Carbonation is dead on, nice resin mouth coating action going on too.

O: This is definitely one of the most interesting beers I've had lately. I almost passed on it due to the "lager" label but I'm glad I didn't. It's 85% like a big DIPA. If I didn't know it was a lager I would have assumed it was a DIPA in fact. Doesn't beat you up too badly despite the high hoppiness, making is surprisingly drinkable. I think I could have more than one of these, which is more than I could say for a Ruination, Maharaja or a Hopsickle.

Bottle purchased at deccicos Pelham for $6. Bottled November 11, 2013.
Its a little old for ipa standards. Nice pour into my pfriem tulip. Golden color with thick sticky lacing. Huge fruity hop aroma..with a hint of pine. Really nice. Great fruity hop flavor...its got a definite kiwi flavor with a sweet yet piney finish. Im not a huge fan of the piney hop flavor so maybe its good its a few months old. Great smooth and crisp mouthfeel. This is excellent.

Served on-tap in a clear glass willi at Stoddard's (Boston, MA).

A: Very slightly hazy golden with 1-finger of tightly bubbled off-white head. Good retention and a nice layering of lacing.

S: CItrus aromas abound with grapefruit and orange with lemon-lime and herbal-floral honeysuckle layered on a clear pilsner malt base. No esters and the alcohol is not detectable.

T: Just a great beer all-around -- drinkable, approachable, but still full of flavor. Big blasts of tropical fruit join the grapefruit-orange-lime citrus and floral flavors. The maltbill is clean and simple with some bready light pilsner malt with no off-flavors. Alcohol is undetectable and there are no off-flavors or esters. Bitterness is medium to medium-high but works well with the lush, crisp fruitness of the hopping.

M: Feel suffers for the ABV a little bit, but it still is pretty drinkable. The body is medium with some crispness but a tad creamy and heavy for a lager, albeit an imperial lager. All of the hop oils give this a bit more of an ale-y quality. Carbonation is medium.

O: Kiwi Rising is an impressive beer, one of the best I've had this year -- it combines drinkability with a big ABV somehow. If you're expecting lager-like feel, that is probably not realistic with the big load of hop oils, but this beer is delicious, aromatic, flavorful, and a must-try.

500ml bottle into a 25cl Duvel tulip. Big thanks to Hopstoopid120 for sharing. Enjoyed fresh and reviewed from notes.

A: Hazy pale amber body beneath a finger of fine, dense white head. Good retention, very nice lace. Lovely.

S: Gigantic, juicy, tropical, and floral hops. Clean, pure hoppy goodness. Terrific.

T: Juicy hops up front, with mango, citrus, and resinous flavors filling in behind. Clean, bitter, and spicy finish with a distant lager-yeast bite on the aftertaste. A trifle harsh on the back end, but still amazing.

M: Lively, ultra-fine carbonation in a fairly light body. A little less body than I'd like, but not bad at all.

O: Terrific beer, with an aroma that puts 90% (at least) of DIPAs to shame, and is simply unparalleled for a lager. I absolutely love what Jack's Abby is doing here.

Cheers!

Bottle to Jack's Abby Pint
500ml

Thanks to Jlindros and Rudzud for this one

App- A solid orange with some mixed golds and yellows. For some reason the head on this one was huge. A giant 3 finger puffy white long lasting head. Generous cling down the glass.

Smell- A solid mix of lager and IPA. A bit of tropical notes with a generous lager yeast aroma came wofting up to greet the noise. Slightly grainular as well.

Taste- I thought this was a good beer. I wanted to like it more, but I think the New Zealand hops arent my favorite variety. I thought the mix of IPA and lager was subtle and the grainular nose followed the beer in the taste department. Good but wanted more.

Mouth- A wet drinking beer but this was a bit of a softer medium body with a light feel behind. Residual grain and some tropical fruits.

Drink- Its a solid beer and I like jacks abbys, I just wanted to like this one more.

Kiwi Rising pours a hazy orange/yellow (light amber?) with a moderate creamy head on top. The foam fades away slowly leaving behind a netted pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma is loaded with grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit notes (mango) and some pine.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is crisp on the palate, somewhat dry with moderate carbonation. The flavor is much like the aroma, lots of grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit (mango, pineapple) and pine. Towards the end there's some malty sweetness trying to balance out all the hops. It finishes bitter with lingering citrus and tropical notes when gone.

This is a delicious beer with a great aroma. It reminds me a lot of Hill Farmstead Edward, but with a thinner body. I hope this becomes a more than seasonal brew.

A: Pours a golden color with 2+ fingers of head that slowly recedes to a nice cap that leaves some good, sticky lacing

S: Very citrusy with a good floral presence as well. Some malt and fruitiness in the back, but very hop forward

T: Follows the nose. Citrus and floral hops are right up front followed by a mellowing malt presence and some lighter fruity notes. Quite bitter throughout and into the finish. Alcohol extremely well hidden behind the hop wall

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: JA knocks another one out of the park. Extremely drinkable for 8.5% even with the high amount of bitterness throughout. Definitely worth picking up
