From BeerAdvocate Magazine #83 (Dec 2013):

“Brewed with a copious amount of pungent hops,” including Columbus, Warrior, Amarillo and Simcoe, all of which are showcased in an awesome array of aromas and flavors with a malty backbone to reign this hop-bomb in just a bit. Overall, a very solid and aggressive IPA in a can that won’t disappoint hopheads looking for their next fix.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 7.0%

LOOK: Light, golden, hazy, thick head

SMELL: Grapefruit, pineapple, grass, herbal, dan

TASTE: Chewy, sticky, resiny, grassy, piney, leafy, zesty, grapefruity, jammy, malty, bready, ashy

Made my first in-person trip down to Jackie O's this Valentine's weekend for my birthday. Needless to say, I was quite excited and encountered an impressive lineup.

Appearance- Pours a slightly hazy golden with about a finger of white head that sticks around for a bit before dying back to a thin coating. Some small amounts of lacing left.

Smell- Wow, smells like a west coast IPA here! Lots of huge grapefruit and pineapple notes dominate the nose. Smells very tropical and creamy.

Taste- Up front with lots of grapefruit rind and pineapple. Almost devoid of any notes of pine or resin from the hops, really dominated by a fruity juiciness that surprised me. Finishes with a nice drying hop punch.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth with a solid amount of carbonation. Drinkability is excellent and I could have sessioned this one if I hadn't want to try a variety of the other beers being offered.

Overall, possibly the best IPAs I've ever had at a small brewpub. Really quite good and paired with the Matriarch DIPA were probably the best beers of the evening.

Reviewed 3-13-15. Threshold Beer Glass. Canned on 1-7-15.

Appearance: My, how pale! Almost 2 inches of bright white head, frothy. Leaves a thin skim of retention. Nice lacing. Modest carbonation - slightly hazy gold.

Aroma: So hoppy it smells a little like gasoline, resiny.

Taste: Dry arrival. Clean, dry, bitter. Dry through and through, hoppy. Bitter finish. Malt? What malt? [Postscript: not fruity at all, just resiny, dank, grassy, somewhat piney, somewhat floral.]

Mouthfeel: Light, with modest carbonation. Perfect IPA.

Overall: Wow. This is a great IPA. Extremely hoppy, exceptionally refreshing. Could make this a regular. Very West Coast - light, hoppy, refreshing. [Postscript: I have since come to recognize the distinct smell and taste of Simcoe hops. This was a Simcoe beer, and I'm usually not a fan of Simcoe beers, though I liked it in this one.]

Review taken as soon as cans hit the shelves near the beginning of Fall 2014.

12 oz can with some pretty stunning artwork. I like Jackie O's and their style. Purple artwork of the mystic mama herself sitting on a black background. Poured into a Nonic style pint glass.

A - Hazy yellowish with a slight touch of golden yellow hue. It looks refreshing. Head pours decent and settles to a thin ring of lacing leave very good stick.

S - fruity and citric notes are what I picked out first. Passion fruit, tangerine, and even a whiff of kiwi. Pine resin note comes on faint with a touch of honeyed bread malt make up the backbone.

T - citrusy hops and a nice sweetness. Not quite as good as the nose, but still brings it's flavor across nicely. Citrus and somewhat dank resinous hops come run in between slightly sweet malt notes.

M - medium bodied and highly drinkable. A nice, refreshing feel to this. Texture is solid and it leaves it's flavor clinging to the mouth. Smooth mouthfeel that flows very well.

O - a very good beer from Jackie O's and one I will pick up again. This stuff tastes so fresh and it is just that considering Jackie O's is only about an hour away. Good stuff
