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!"

This has been on tap alot recently and for good reason. I think with rye you are either a fan or you are not, I am a fan as I think the rye gives a unique spice to the beer that you cant get with hops. It has very good bitterness to it the finish is lingering and the rye spice is very noticeable. When it is on draft it is one I always get.

Can. Orange peel and spicy rye malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange, rye malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body. Definitely so freakin’ good.

Can from Vintage Estate. Pours straw golden with white head. Nose is litterbox, citrus, and some pine. Well balanced, nice backbone and citrus hop goodness. Some mild rye notes. Really, really delicious.

This is a nice, strong grapefruit-centric IPA. This is a cloudy orange golden brew with a head of fine bubbles. Its nose is big citrus with a touch of pine to it as well. It tastes just a little sweet which brings out mandarin orange and floral notes. There is a touch of honey-like malt character but this is really all about the hops. Texture is full bodied and a bit juicy but not too heavy and really very drinkable. It finishes with solid bitterness and just a touch of a pleasant apple skin astringent note. This is a really damn good Ipa, heartily recommended by yours truly to all fans of the style.

My first beer ever at world of beer franchise. Certainly won't be my last (in the next 10 minutes and thereafter). Sold to me by the bartender as a good local IPA. I have to agree - more of the crisp lite IPA style - hoppy and refreshing. Interesting lacing, color is super light. Taste is solid, fruity hops, not too heavy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice draft also comes in cans for drinking at the ballpark, while picnicking, or after mowing the lawn. It might be past the time of year when I normally look for a session IPA but come 2015 this might get some recommendations from friends looking for a new experience.

Aroma / Appearance - A caramel golden base radiates life with bright carbonation and wispy head for company. Rye, pine, and floor polish scrub the air and leave behind a rough bitterness. Lightweight and airy, it feels ideal for a beer meant to drunk more than once in a single sitting.

Flavor / Palate - Rye, pine, and oaky hops tickle the tongue. A fluid mouthfeel sweeps to a bitter memorable finish bursting with fresh hops. Despite the 6.5% ABV this feels like a beer that would be easy to drink over a long session without too much palate fatigue. Grab a can net time you travel through Ohio.

JRListon (9) - - SEP 28, 2014 does not count
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 (157) - 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.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2014
12 ounce can opened 8/22/14. Pours a hazy orange color with a large foamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of rye, citrus hops, toasted malt. The taste is citrus and tropical hops, rye, toasted malts and a bit of caramel. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, moderate carbonation, decent balance.

suprchunk (2343) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Golden colored pour. Small white head. Tons of lacing. Enormous malt aroma. Some spicy notes and a bit of earthy hops. Taste is huge malt. Tastes like an English IPA.
