A: Gold, light copper color. Not much head
S: Strong citrus notes, pine, floral notes
T: Strong citrus at first, tastes like it smells
M: Lightly carbonated, sits nicely, dry but inviting aftertaste in a good way
O: Great beer, especially from a small brewery. Unbeatable by a large brewer. Great choice!

Poured from the growler into a standard pint glass. Appears a nice golden orange color with average white head. The head leaves a nice ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass and small amounts of lacing.
Nose is citrus, floral and spiciness. All hops in the aroma. Taste starts malty upfront, but quickly moves to bitter. Again the citrus and floral hops, and huge spiciness to finish. Big spicy kick at the end of each sip.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, average carbonation and each sip leaves a nice film, but not overly sticky. Very drinkable and seems almost more like an IPA than on APA. Overall, a good, dependable brew. Glad a friend in Athens could grab this for me before coming up this weekend. Definitely worth having, and just a few adjustments could make it a go-to brew.

On Nitro-Tap. My second trip to Jackie O's.
Appearance - A solid foam like whipped cream, of course. A pale orange and yellow color that is amber-like. Bubbly with carbonation.
Smell - Light citrus and hops. A very light smell with not much else going on.
Taste - Succulent citrus and hops. Very smooth, but sort of plain. Slightly dry. A light hop-bite.
Mouthfeel and Drinkability - Easily palatable and drinkable. A fairly dry taste overall. I was ready for my glass to be empty when I finished it. This isn't saying that the brew was bad, just that it wasn't one of my favorite pale ales.

A solid Pale Ale. Generously hopped with a bicuity malt front. Light straw color with quick white head. Light aromas of dough and pine needles. Taste is of pale malt and white bread, piney and earthy hops take over for a dry, crisp finish. A good last call beer.

On tap at the brewery.The last of the pale ale/IPA/single hoppped beers I will likely want to pay for from Jackie O's sadly. They just all seem way below average imo.
Arrived a very light, golden wheat color with a short white head. Spotted lace ran down my glass after each sip.
Ouch, the smell is clean - as in crisp and also cleaner - as in cleaning solvent. Lots of pine character from the hops and lemon pledge from whatever else. This one just smelled off to me, I don't get the praise for this beer.
Light and bitter hops on the taste. Nothing too complex or deep, though luckily it didn't taste as bad as it smelled. The malts are soft and bready.
Very dry going down. My notes say, "dry, going on dry-teen." Whatever that means to you...
I have determined that Jackie O's just doesn't make very good hop-forward beer. Plenty of breweries are better at certain styles, Jackie O's ought to focus on stouts and sour porters it would seem.

4.33/5 rDev +13.4%
Appearance: Arrives with a cloudy orange-tinted amber color and an inch of a head that leaves some streaks of lace
Smell: The aroma smells of fresh floral hops
Taste: Bready, up front, with a pith and pine character that is joined with some graham cracker sweetness in the mid-palate; after the swallow the flavors merge together leaving considerable hoppy bitterness in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Drinkability: A top flight example of the style that verges on IPA territory

Pours a hazy orange with a decent head that resolves to a nice cap.
Smells fruity with a very nice overall aroma.
Taste is fruity with enough flavor to give it character, but not too much that it is complex and over powering. Very nice flavor.
It feels like it looks, a little hazy, but light.
Drinks well with not much of an aftertaste.
If you like Pale Ale's then you really should give this a try. Good solid beer that won't leave you disappointed.
