The beer comes in a beautiful clear dark rich ruby color with a thick whtie head.

The aroma has pine and grapefruit. Some caramel malt sweetness.

The beer has a wonderful caramel malt that is sweet, but clean and not sticky. A piney and spicy bitterness throughout. Almost reminds me of the hop character of Celebration. A medium mouthfeel.

A delicious hoppy beer with great balance and clean flavors.

This beer pours a nice reddish orange Color with a nice white head that slowly recedes lacing the glass beautifully. The smell is piney hops and a nice bready malt backbone. Taste follows the smell. Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Overall a great beer

Very nice variation of a bock with an awesome taste of hops.Poured orange into a snifter, its head a nice 2 inches and lacing lasting until the end. Never one to like too many hops this IBU of 50 is just right with its amber color and maltiness, this is an exceptional lager, from the lager heads at Jack's Abby who know how to treat Munch malt to make this really, really good tasting beer - Thanks guys!

S: Very fresh hops, caramel malt, resiny

L: Quite clear orangish red with white creamy head that dissipates slightly.

T: Semi-sweet caramel malt with a pungent hop taste. Medium high bitterness with a pungent resiny hop flavor following. Finishes fairly clean with lasting hop flavor. Some caramel and pine as it warms.

M: Medium full body, medium carbonation. Smooth.

A great beer, would have no idea if this was a lager if it didn't tell me. Just fantastic.

Purchased a bottle from the brewery a few days ago. First to review it, had a sample at the brewery and knew I needed to buy some. According to bottle its a "Hopback Lager" with munich malt, and styrian, centennial, Columbus and palisade hops. Sign me up.


A: Pours a crystal clear, deep copper, thin head dissipated quickly. Could be a slightly dirty glass.

S: Big fresh grapefruit hops, definitely can smell the Centennial+Columbus. Incredibly pungent considering the long time needed to ferment a lager.

T: Initial taste is a big wave of bitter grapefruit and piney hops. Has a nice malty backbone with notes of brown bread, molasses, maybe even rye. Has that "red" malt flavor to it, a bit tea like. Finishes with a dry spicy, herbal, resins, floral dank, and refreshing hop bite. As i continue to drink it gets greener and spicier. Great balance of malt sweetness and bitterness, very clean tasting (no yeast or off notes).

M: Lots of carbonation, creamy, a bit oily, but has that lager crisp/lightess.

O: I really like this beer. Great hop aroma and flavor, rich malt backbone that holds its own, yet not palate dominating. Would make an excellent session beer. One of Jack's best offerings. This was pretty tough to classify, Rate beer says imperial pilsner, with Munich malts though I definitely consider this an amber or red. Maybe an India Red Lager? Sounds crazy but its awesome, highly recommended.
