3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Jackie O’s Taproom. Aroma and appearance of pure orange juice, literally like opening a bottle of OJ. Medium body with sweet citrus notes and some bitterness on the backend. Actually a good DIPA but wanted more in the way of a hop bomb.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft... Muckfest 2014… Clear amber pour with a tiny, quickly-dissipating, white head. The aroma is reminiscent of Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, fruity and juicy, but does trend bitter by a narrow margin. Well-developed crunchy malts - doesn’t seem like a lot of caramel. A touch of ethanol is noticeable. Finishes crisp, moderately bitter, grassy, then dry.

On draft at Alexandria’s in Findlay. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is tangerine, blood orange, orange peel, white grapefruit, and lingering tropical fruit. Flavor is similar with assertive tropical fruit, tangerine, blood orange, and bitter orange with lingering bitter orange into the finish. Medium to full in body and a nice DIPA overall.

32oz growler in a teku. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy and floral hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and hints of dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. Another solid beer from Jackie O’s.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the production brewery’s tasting room. Thanks for the pour, Brad! Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head that settles into a ring. Big, big juicy aroma on this one. The flavor, though, has more bitterness. Tropical and citrus fruits, florals, grass, and some backing pale and sweet malts. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy, bitter mouthfeel. The galaxy hops really explode in the nose on this one.
