3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Light gold color with no head and no lacing. Aroma is almost nonexistent- just light hops and faint floral notes. Flavor has strong piney bitterness, grapefruit and bready toasted malts. Very little carbonation. Simple and boring overall. Pretty disappointing compared to Jackie-O’s other beers.
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Draft @ Hilton CMH. Light aroma, slightly sweet, straw. Dark yellow color with a white head that lasts quite a while, pretty good lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and a touch spicy from the rye. Appropriate body. Overall a good IPA. Marheb (6193) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2017
(En fût à la source): Des agrumes fondantes avec un modéré enrobage tropical. La finale est sèche et presque engourdissante. Solide. ganache (6054) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2017
Can from VE, rating #111 for this beer. Nose of pine, rye, earth. Pour clear, slightly pale, slightly burnished golden with below-average carbonation and a foamy-rocky white head. Watery light-medium body, astringent, medium bitterness, very dry; highlights of rye over earth and dark caramel, on second thought, much higher levels of rye. Light citrus, minimal malt, low resin but still strips the palate utterly clean. Composed and well-executed, but I don’t much like the results.

12oz can from Vintage Estate. Lighter than ipa pour. White head with streaky lace. Aroma has citrus, tangy fruits, light malt. Taste is of sweet and spicy rye malts, some grapefruit and other citrus. A bit subtle. Lighter than medium bodied, the blend is fine and there is little alcohol presence. Finishes quite a bit sweeter than bittersweet. A solid rye-ipa. 13.4 bwa5879 (959) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2017
Dark orange pour bordering on red, hazy, inch of fluffy white head. Juicy citrus aroma, orange and tangerine, rye adds a nice spicy essence. Soft carbonation, thinner mouthfeel, dry finish. The rye attributes blend nicely and add spiciness to tangerine grapefruit and pine hops. Really nice rye IPA.

Pours a golden opaque yellow. Danny lemon aroma. Light body. Easy drinking but lacks the hoppyness of an IPA.

Canned. Pours a slightly hazy golden beer with a medium sized white head on top. Aroma is strong on the rye characters, lots of grapefruits, grassy and leafy hops and very full. Flavor has lots of bittering hops, lots earthy rye influences, strong bitter grapefruit and very full flavored and has a longlasting, bitter aftertaste. Really refreshing, great balance and a very nice IPA. Great stuff. italianjohn (3254) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Clear light golden pour with a thin white head and thin stripes rings of lacing .... Aroma of rye grapefruit and citrusy hops ..... Taste is of grapefruity and citrusy rinds with a spicy rye bite .... average dlovell2 (2283) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma is pineapple and spicy herbal hops. Flavor is fruity pineapple up front with citrus. Finishes grapefruit, bitter pine, and rye spiciness. Bitterness lingers. DiarmaidBHK (5881) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Can at Le Meridien Columbus. Pours orange with a white head. Solid floral notes on the nose. Nice balance of rye with some pine notes. Bracing bitterness on the tongue. Nice!
