A huge CANQuest (TM) note of thanks to Uncle JedI and PurpleHatJoan for dropping several CANs on me durng theor recent, all too brief visit to Lancaster, PA! Let's face it, Jackie O's is near-legendary, if not full-on legendary and I do not know how long it might have taken me to get these CANs otherwise.

From the CAN: "sustainably crafted with purpose"; "brewed with copious amounts of pungent hops"; "Design by Kevin Morgan Studio Illustration by Bryn Perrott".

They have kind of an e. e. cummings vibe going with the lower case lettering, but I dig it, Daddy-O! I also dig a nice, loud Crack!, which I got from this brimful craft CAN. Now, an inverted Glug was in order to really get things shaking, resulting in not only a pseudo-cascade, but also a finger of dense, bone-white head with good retention. Color was a thick, viscous,cloudy, golden-yellow (SRM = > 5, < 7) and my old pals, Croesus, Mammon and Midas were back, all clamoring for a sip. In the meantime, I leaned in for a sniff and when they mentioned "... copious amounts of pungent hops, they weren't just whistling Dixie, brother! It smelled like they dumped a bag of dank in there. Pine was the big scent, but also tropical fruit and all of a sudden, the hops monkey jumped back up on my back and began to screech and howl! Damn. I am a self-avowed hophead and recovering hops junkie, but this was making me sweat in anticipation. I reached into the kitchen drawer and pulled out my works just before I tied off and took my first hit of the afternoon. Mouthfeel was big and soft, like a glob of hops pudding sitting on my tongue, worming its way into my taste buds like hydrofluoric acid. I dunned a previous AIPA for seeming like it had been dry-hopped to the point of saturation and beyond, and I have to say that I got the same sensation here. Too many hops for my unrefined taste. I unlooped my belt from around my arm and got a second rush, but at least the monkey had quieted down. Holy Jeez-O, man! Do they sell to just anybody over 21 y/o or do you have to know a secret handshake or password? I mean, this really caught me right between the eyes and I am no novice. Finish was gaspingly dry as I began to hear the Zephyr winds blowing across the Sahara. Whew. I suddenly feel a lay-down coming on.

Rating is pretty stellar so it should be worth the $2.19 single I got from Vintage Estate.

A - They went for a rather hazy unfiltered look with an amber brown hue. Head is nice a 1/2 inch of rocky head that sticks around for a bit and has hella nice lacing.
S - Solid grapefruit and piney hops, crystal sweet malts and cracker crusts.
T - Sweet citrus peel and lemon rind like bitterness with balanced malt sweetness. Assertive with cloying hop bitterness clinging to the palate after each sip but in no way overly bitter or herbal. I like it.
M - Light to medium it goes down smooth. Almost session able ABV

Overall quite a tasty well crafted IPA for a very affordable price. Just sucks that I could only find this in Ohio.
