On tap at Bodega.

A- Pale gold with a thin haze and minimal head. Spotty lace.

S- The smell is the best part. Its very sweet, full of orange and candied citrus. A little but of malt.

T- Too bitter with mostly pine and astringent, almost medicinal hops. Some citrus but much less than the nose leads on.

On tap in a pint glass at Bodega on 2/12/11

Dull, burnt amber color. Small layer of foam thins quickly. Skimmed retention. A bit of drippy lace.

Airy, floral hop aroma is punctuated by sweeter malt aspects. There's something akin to candy sweetness in there. Hints of earth and pine. Tastes similar - floral hops with a bit of earthiness and pine bitterness. Not quite astringent, but the bitterness grows. Toasty, bready notes. Candy notes, too. Seems to come together better as it warms. Kind of. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Dry and astringent, finishing a tad harsh with the bitterness.

Drinkability is ok. It could be a lot better.

Thanks to kgncfl for sending this one. My first Jackie O's beer. Something of a miss though. I've heard people talk about that plastic, band-aid taste in beer, but until this, I don't think I've experienced. Now I get it. Something burnt and chemical on the finish distracted from the enjoyment. Hopwise, this strikes the balance between hop and malt, perhaps a bit more on the hop end would be appreciated. Overall, this is somewhere on the low side of the IPA spectrum, but perhaps in a different state with less Band-Aid, this would leave a better impression.

Aroma: Melon and tropical fruit aromatics up front. Mild alcohol warmth invades the nostrils. Slight hint of bready sweetness. Clean fermentation character.

Appearance: Cloudy amber pour with a thick, long-lasting white head. Appears still and murky in the glass.

Flavor: Huge pithy orange rind bitterness up front. Bitterness continues with more melon and citrusy notes to back up the punch. At the very end on the back of the tongue is more of the bready maltiness. Balance is firmly bitter. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high carbonation and slight hop-derived astringency.

Overall impression: A bitter bomb for sure. I enjoyed it but there are so many other good, local, better, and more reasonably priced IPA's out there that I can't see reaching for this one again.

I wasn't able to give this a proper examination as I was eating while I was drinking it but I can say that this was an average IPA. It left me wanting something more. Overall it was just average. The appearance was that of an average IPA, just as the other aspects. The taste was conservative for an IPA, almost like a starter beer to get people interested in IPAs. I have had pale ales that had more hoppiness to them but overall not a bad beer, just an average IPA.
