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

Received as an extra. Three months old.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a thin head that fades to leave sudsy lacing.

S - Aromas of sweeter malts, bitter hops, nothing particular special, pleasant though.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, malts are more subdued, nice bitterness, faint remnants of tropical hops, finish is a bit bland.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, though slightly thin.

O - Overall this beer was nice, though probably a shell of what it should be. Tasty but should be better.

Poured into the Speigelau from a 12oz canned on 2/19/15. Really fresh. Clear amber with a finger of loose, white head with ample lacing. Pungent hop notes, pine, mango, perhaps a bit of lemon/lime, and a nice, sticky resinous dank hint (bit of that savory funk). Juicy outright with big lemon and grapefruit coming in hard. Slightly too much bitterness for the sweetness of the malt in this one (but I'm splitting hairs)... overall tasty and crushable. Medium mouthfeel, with some of the danker notes lingering... well put together IPA. Nice head scratcher... Jackie O's still hasn't disappointed.

Had never had a beverage from this brewer before...i am impressed. A very flavorful and fragrant IPA which can compete with, but not surpass, similar beers in its class.
