Look - A cloudy dark golden color
Smell - Tons of citrus, grapefruit, hints of tropical fruits, pine
Taste - Dank, grapefruit, pine, citrus

Overall - didn't know what to expect from this one but I must say, I was impressed. Very tasty and super easy drinking.

12oz bottle, can't make out born-on date

Pours a hazy orange with a thin head

Smells of subdued tropical notes

Taste a bit malty w hop background, smooth. Bitterness retreats nicely for an 80 IBU. Balanced, bordering on EIPA

Low carbonation, feels like a homebrew; minor alcohol presence (a good thing)

A good English IPA

BREWMASTER JACK AMBREWSIA IPA 8/7/15

Bottled in March so this is an oldie. Bought about six weeks ago so some of the age is my fault.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada IPA glass

a: Hazy orange with a huge two plus inch thick white head which receded slowly to thick surface foam and dense patterned lacing. Impressive.

s: Dank pine resin.

t: Intense pine resin up front over a medium bready malt base. Bitterness lingers and adds strong grassy notes,. Dry finish.

m: Medium, good body and plenty of carbonation tingle.

o; A surprisingly good older offering from BJ, definitely worth trying a fresher bottle to see if the flavor has been affected any by age. 80 IBUs so very near or at DIPA strength hoppiness.
