Notes: Flavors of citrus from Galaxy and Mosaic hops are complemented by the slightest addition of pineapple juice (less than 0.1% by volume).

Appearance: Hazy yellow with medium to full bubbles to the body with a white head rising a notch over a finger's length off the body. Heavy stickiness to the glass which maintains after a few sips.

Smell: Heavy citrus and smooth malts but light aroma.

Taste: Sweet citrus but heavy floral which overcomes some of the spicy foods I'm pairing with it. Lemongrass undertone and sweet pineapple with a spoonful of hops.

Mouth: Chewy and I say this maybe because of the extra carbonation the beer has, full body but not too much stickiness.

Overall: Descent brew, definitely above average and super thirst quenching. If it crosses your eyes definitely grab it...salud!

My first (trying something new) Brewmaster Jack. Freezer chilled pour leads to a pineapple aroma as advertised. Very smooth drinking and I liked the tart aftertaste. Put a creamy shot in the pour and you'll have a concoction!

A- Tallboy into a tulip-snifter glass with a fairly hazy golden body and a one finger foamy white head. The head retention is decent and a few small webs of lacing wrap around the glass.

S- Dank and hoppy all the way with a very strong and pungent hop filled aroma. Grapefruit juice instantly comes to mind as well as strong citrus hops with the dank herbs, pineapple, mango, peach and juicy stone fruits. Nectar.

T- The dank and juicy vibe from the aroma carries over and this brew really has some great hop depth on the palate. A very well balanced blend of citrus, dank, tropical and stone fruit hops. Beyond that there are hints of underripe apricots, clementine, tangerine, lime, pale base grains, bread and melon.

MF- Medium bodied brew with a hefty creamy texture and a high level of carbonation. Silky and very smooth and it ends with a nice clean bitterness.

Brewmaster Jack with another good hoppy brew and one that I am super happy that I found really fresh by chance. The pineapple flavor is there but it is hard to tell if it is from the juice or from the hops but either way this one is loaded with citrus, tropical, stone fruit and dank hop flavors.

no canning date?
Pours a decent foamy slight creamy almost 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, not bad for the abv, a bit of lacing, semi clear slight hazed golden yellow color

Nose big sweet candy malt, pineapple but the gummy sugar coated pineapple candy like, a little citrus and generic tropical, that's about it, fairly one dimentional

Taste brings more pineapple, again candied pineapple with syrup like they kind you get on top of an ice cream sundae, candy sweet malts, sugar syrup, a bit of light almost green citrus like unripe orange clementine, a bit spicy hop, again that's about it, fairly simple but not great, driier finish, bit of alcohol tingle, sharp pineapple and spicy hops lingering

Mouth is med bod, some warming tingly alcohol late, even the carbonation is a bit light

Overall meh, nothing really good about this, even the pineapple juice was like candy syrup on the big syrupy malts, alcohol was not really hidden, hops were bland, not sure if it's old but I purchased it recently, but without a canning date no way to tell. Either way this was a boring sweet bland beer.

Not sure what's going on with Brewmaster Jack. When they first came out all their beers were amazing, really loved their stuff. Lately they've been really going the other direction.

Pours a very hazy burnt orange color reminiscant of passion fruit juice. Very little head and little lacing.

Pineapple and passion fruit immediately fill the air. Caramelized sugar, candied tropical fruits, and a small hint of ginger follow up.

Tastes of citrus peels, pine, grapefruit are predominately present. The pineapple is subtle but there and tastes mixed with tangerines. An even more subtle hint of sweet mango is present before the finish. Bitter hops linger after every sip mixed with a boozy, alcoholic taste.

Medium body with medium low carbonation. The carbonation leaves a bit of tingle behind. I feel a bit of stickiness after every sip.

Not a bad pineapple DIPA. I wish there could be more present up front but not enough to overpower. This isn't a juice bomb and drinks more like a traditional DIPA. It definitely is a good offering from Western Massachusetts and I'm glad I've had it.

Picked up a can of this at Julio's. There is no canning date so hopefully this isn't too old.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice just slightly hazy light golden hue with a fat two finger white head that fades to leave super sticky side lacing and a dense creamy blanket. Very nice.

S - Aromas of slightly sweet pineapple juice, quite ripe. Little bit of malts. I do get an unfortunate 'old hops' aroma, light caramel. I also get a slight metallic flash as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Some light hop bitterness, decent pineapple juice, slightly sweet and nicely tropical. The mosaic I think asserts rather heavily. Getting a fair amount of earthy spicy hop along with a bit of an oniony flavour that absolutely clashes with the pineapple. The unfortunate reality when using mosaic.

M - Mouthfeel is quite nice. Decently carbonated, little fluffy. Very pleasant. Alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this beer was kind of a bust. Not sure if it was a matter of it being on the older side, the mosaic, or a combination of both. Either way the old earthy slightly oniony hops really ruined this one for me. I'd like to try it super fresh though because if that flavour/aroma is gone this could be quite the enjoyable beer.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some faint hues of amber. It poured with a finger high frothy white head that consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of pineapples are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of citrusy hops along with strong notes of pineapples. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked how this Imperial IPA had flavors of pineapples and wasn't overly bitter. It drank more like an APA.

Huh. So here's a double IPA actually from New England that upfront says it has juice in it (pineapple) and is clear and golden, not hazy. Trickier one to fit neatly with current trends, but it tastes good. Definitely juicy and pineapple, though strangely I've had beers that achieved similar tropical taste with hops. Head dissipates quickly. Some booze punch at 8%.
