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 O’s. 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 freakin’ good!"

Source: 12 oz can. Aroma: nice hop front aroma. Followed quickly with a nice biscuit malt presence. Color: great pale ale color. Quite a bit of haze. Taste: malt backbone is in charge. Characteristic rye flavor, well balanced with the hops. Neither the hops or malt override each. They actually take turns showing up on the palate. The rye seems to be the final note on my palate. Overall:( A-) A great effort in a style of beer I really enjoy, by a brewery that I feel does a great job with most of their beers. If you like rye, you'll like this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pored from 12oz. can. Pours a yellow hazy color with medium carbonation. Aroma is citrus but not overpowering. Light bodied with medium carbonation. slightly bitter but a good session IPA. Would have a few of these. Pretty good.

Lectvay (146) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Can from a local swap, thanks Jeff! This is quite nice. Intense aroma, on the dank, grassy end of the spectrum. Very bitter, grainy, like rye bread.

superspak (2712) - Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2014
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 that’s what it’s meant to be.

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.

cheap (4130) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2014
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.
