COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the news section of Jackie-Os website: "Hop Ryot has hit the taps and I believe that this is the finest IPA that we have produced here at Jackie Oís. Get to the pub to try this rye IPA, or look for it on draft at Bodega in Columbus." ... On the chalkboard-menu in the bar (as of spring 2011): "So freakiní good!"

12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours fairly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate caramel/rye malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness and rye spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate rye/caramel malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice rye IPA! All around great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate caramel/rye malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear copper orange color with a large white head. A nice fruity orange tea nose. Rich spicy rye, oranges, some lemon zest, very smooth, tea-like, a bit of resin. Very good beer. A bit light, but thatís what itís meant to be.

12 oz can poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Hazy golden brown/orange with a finger of off-white head. Some bits of sediment. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, rye, caramel. Aroma seems a bit light. Tastes of grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit, rye, floral hops, caramel, a bit of sweet malt. Medium body with a dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Pretty good.

Quite perfumy out of the can. Looks like a darker hefe. First taste is a big dull blast of IPA naughtiness. Yes, terribly on style for a rye IPA. Long bitter rude medicinal hop finish, wew. Nasty Nellie. If yer a lager lover, better stay away from this stuff.

Twelve oz can on vacation in NC. This beer pours a hazy apricot with a nice thick head of off white foam. Nose is floral hops. Taste is a good blend of sharp herbal notes and evergreen hops, medium malt with a touch of sweetness. Body medium with active bubbles. Finish with a good amount of bitters.

Not happy with this one: overly bitter a pretty harsh bite from the rye. Not sure why, just not digging this one, even though I have liked many rye beers in the past. 12oz can pour.

Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Pours a hazy gold color with a small frothy head that fades to a ring and leaves decent lacing. Aromas are oranges, grapefruit, peaches, and a hint of flowers. Taste starts with a light malty sweetness to go with the citrus fruit and peaches. Finishes moderately bitter with spicy rye, pine, and flowers. Fairly dry finish with a citrus rind aftertaste. Pretty good IPA.
