I am three for three with this, picked up my third separate bottle today, this one brewed on April 2014. I am surprised the reviews and rating for this beer is not higher, this one really suits my personal palate. The floral hops and bitterness are great. Highly recommended.

I look at the ratings of this beer and I'm very surprised. I think this beer is exceptional. Drank a month out from bottling and in MA, so maybe I'm benefiting from the freshness. The beer smells and tastes awesome. Very good carbonation, with lots of citrus up front and a sweet aftertaste. Really good brew.

Even at around 3 months old, this is a damn good IPA. Plenty of flavorful, juicy citrus notes alongside a lingering, pithy bitterness make for an assertively hoppy brew. A bit of sweet caramel and toffee provide just enough balance.

I've tried 3 great beers from Jack and no duds. An awesome, under the radar brewery. Hope I get to try more!

12 oz. bottle

Pours slightly hazy golden amber orange with a dense creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like mango, papaya, guava, melon, orange, grapefruit, berry, pineapple, caramelized bready crackery grain, with earthy herbal grass and dank floral pine. Tastes slightly bitter and resinous with grapefruit, orange citrus, mango, papaya, melon, guava, some pineapple, blueberry, caramelized bready crackery grains, with earthy herbal grass and dank floral pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a nice IPA.
