I would have never suspected my first 5 would come from a Double IPA, but Ive gotta hand it to the brewers of Jackie-Os. This beer does indeed "fucking rule". Poured on draft a few times at Jackie-Os. Pours a beautifully translucent copper with a creamy, tight nit head of white foam. Great retention, great lacing. The aroma was loaded with tropical fruit notes of papaya, mango, oranges, pineapple...man, thats how a Double IPA ought to smell. The first sip is pure ambrosia. The tropical fruit sweetness balances perfectly with the higher alpha acids of the Citra hops. Is Citra the perfect hop? I think this showcasing of it makes a strong case for it in my book. Finish is sweet and bitter and sticks with you for a couple moments. I really hope this is a beer added to the regular lineup. Im sad I couldnt bring a growler of this home with me.

Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeffs on July 20. Poured from a can, I cant recall is it was a 12 or crowler. The pour is a clear-ish golden yellow with a big white head that slowly falls, leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice dank citra hop up front with a lot of bitter rind and pine resin. This isnt anything like I was expecting for a citra IPA. The flavor is much of the same. There is a little more juiciness to it, but its really dank, bitter, and dry. The mouth feel is thinner and light with a decent carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Its really interesting. I dont think Ive ever had a citra beer this dank and bitter.

luttonm (4621) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Can in Seattle. Huge thanks to Pruf, best of the box so far! Thin foamy head, hazy clean orange. Delicious fruit, clean and very fresh. Pineapple, mild pith, sweet and juicy. Modest bitter with a clean, sharp alcohol helping to balance it all. A touch of resin at finish, coating. Terrific and delicious.
