Smells of candied oranges and sweet mandarin orange fruit. A little bit of the citrus fruit peel too, grapefruit especially. Smells really great. Tasting it, the beer seems a little bit muddled. The flavors sort of blend together and don't really pop individually. But what is here is tasty. Blood oranges, citrus peels, some caramel from the malt all sort of blending together with the bitterness. The finish is that initial taste pretty much with extended bitterness. Nice prickly mouthfeel yet drinks easy for the style, medium bodied.
Overall, actually a pretty tasty and interesting IPA, its flavor profile just felt a bit muddled and that's where it lost points.

3.8/5 rDev -3.1%
Growler filled at the taproom yesterday from a just-filled keg, and enjoyed less than 24 hours later out of a teku.
A: Pours somewhere between polished bronze and a darker shade of gold. Not bad to look at, but not very exciting.
S: Candied orange peel, fresh pine, and juicy tropical fruits
T: Bitter hops, resin, and light pine lead the way. There's some faint sweetness afterwards, which leads to a very dry finish.
O: This is a solid beer that I would drink with a smile anytime. But given the competition in this field, it doesn't really stand out. I think Hop Ryot is the way to go if you want a pale ale from Jackie O's.
