3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale straw, light haze, thin white head. Aroma: light, delicate resinty-grassy hops with a little citrus, underlying grainy malt with some caramel. Flavor: grainy malt with some caramel sweetness, firm bitterness with resiny, grassy hop flavor and a little lemon-citrus. Finishes slightly bitter. Quenching refresher.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Finally found it. My notes were for "single hop golden." Now it makes sense as a "golden ale." Anyway, nice sessionable ale. Pretty tame overall but honestly tasty for being sub-4 ABV.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Clean, clearish gold pour with a moderate carbonation and fairly minimal head. Bracing dry nose, appealing and inviting though not especially complex. But it’s meant to be a pert session ale and it certain succeeds really well in that area, grassy and herbal everywhere.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Received in a pint glass. I enjoy gettting one of the series every time I go to JO’s. The beers themselves are forgettable, but it allows me to do some research into hop profiles without doing any of the work myself.
3.5 A: Golden wheat color. Came without a head.
3.5 S: Pine and grapefruit dominate. Flowery with a light orange citrus.
2.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Moderate bitterness. Pine and grapefruit, flowers, and mild citrus. Lacking any maltiness, which I guess is the point.
2.5 M: Light body. Moderate carbonation. Not much creaminess.
2.5 D: It is what it is.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft. Appearance is translucent gold with a thick, fluffy white head of foam. Aroma is super hoppy, herbal, and resinous. A touch of graininess comes through, but the hops pretty much kick that out of the equation. Jackie-O’s does a great job on these single hop golden ales. They really bring out the hop profile of the showcased varietal. Pretty cool series they have going here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler thanks to Puddintane, I won his contest during free beer week 2012. A sweet rich hoppy nose, very floral and big. The flavor is very nice: refreshing, high carbonated, light orange peel, pineapple, lingering bitterness. Under 4% but good, we need these low alcohol brews in Utah.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at the brewpub. Mostly hazy yellow/white color. A thin but persisting foamy white head, leaving plenty of lace. Light, crisp carbonation, more dry texture. Good, long aftertaste. Nice, strong hop aroma for a 3.5er. Spice, pear, floral and fresh bitter citrus. Zesty taste. Jackie-Os’ single-hop brews have yet to disappoint me. Great session ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma of citrusy, piney and grassy hops. Piney and grassy hop flavor up front before a bitter grapefruit finish. Nice hoppy session beer and the best of the single hop series so far.
