Served on tap at Chappy's in Moraine. This is one of the less impressive offerings from Jackie O's, but yet it is quite drinkable. There's a balanced mix between hops and wheat, and there are flavors of grapefruit and citrus. The mouthfeel is light to medium, making it drinkable for a spring day, and the carbonation is moderate. Someone who enjoys this style may like it a bit more (I was expecting a more hoppy beer, and that's not at all what I got). It's a decent choice for a session spring ale, but probably not one that I will make again.

Very nice session ipa. Dare I say one of the few session ipa's that has a nice glow about it. Pleasant aromas to go along with a crisp, hoppy dandelion taste. Pretty good . . . Go ahead and can this one guys.

This is a good-looking brew, clearly unfiltered as even the pale, almost pastel color is clouded, though it clears up somewhat and shows some brightness. The head is pure white, fluffy and soapy. It's got a softness to it that also proves to be quite strong. It holds up a full finger pretty well through the session, and the lacing that's dropped behind it is patchy and in good quantity.
This is a very nicely hopped session beer, both in bitterness considering the (technical) style and how lightly hopped a beer of this ABV tends to be and the overall bouquet/flavor. There's a ghost of something almost cat-like, maybe a touch acidic, which isn't bad and really only shows up in any real way in the aroma. I wonder if Simcoe is used at all or if Citra and sometimes produce something like that. Regardless, I don't find it to detract much at all. Munich malts are well used just for balance, adding a nice, soft malty sweetness and a bit of grainy character. Overall, though, it's semi-dry, as the hops and the wheat add a bit of cracker/bread as well as bitterness. The aroma and flavor really shine with hops, thouh, as lots of citrus comes out, lightly pithy. Notes of some fresh grapefruit as well as rind make for a brighter, zesty sort of bitterness. It finishes out with a bit of lingering floral character. For such a sessionable beer to be so flavorful makes it a pleasure to drink several of these in a row pretty easily.
This beer flows on the tongue with tight carbonation and an easy smoothness with a brightness all through and zippy crispness from front to end.

Poured out of a week old can into a pint glass. Appears a perfectly clear golden color with a nice white head. The nose is nicely hoppy with a touch of citrus coming through, along with a touch of malt sweetness. The taste is grainy, with a malty finish, balanced with good hoppiness in the middle There's a bit of citrus and pine. Overall, it's a decent session IPA, but is a touch thin and a little too grainy for my tastes.

On tap at The Daily Growler in Upper Arlington, OH.

Pours a light yellow, with a one inch head and not much lacing.

Smells a bit catty, with some underlying citrus flavors.

The taste is a bit similar, and shows one of the typical downfalls of all Citra-hopped beers. Sort a grainy, catty flavor overtakes the proceedings, and is not all that pleasant. There is a small amount of bitterness, with some mild pine and citrus.

Light bodied, crisp, well carbonated. Not all that drinkable due to off flavors.

Probably the least of the new beers I tried this weekend.

Canned on 2/3/16. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a pale golden with a subtle haze; small white head that fades leaving solid retention and some lacing. The aromas are very nice. Lots of citrus. Ripe grapefruit is there with some subtle cracker notes. The flavors are very clean and crisp. More grapefruit and orange along with hints of lemon and lime zest. Some cracker notes are in the mix. Slightly sweet. Hints of pine as well. Solid bitterness for such a small beer. Alcohol obviously goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's light with active carbonation. Extremely smooth and very drinkable.

This is a very nice "Session IPA". Nice hop profile and it's extremely refreshing. If you're looking for a hoppy brew with a lower ABV, this is definitely worth checking out. Enjoyable stuff.

This is actually a very good beer, but it is not what I want in a session pale ale. It's incredibly hoppy. World of beer, Easton. Columbus, oh
