Poured into a perfect pint.

3.75 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is good and nearly a finger of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Lot of hops in this. Piney, earthy, and grassy notes first. Grapefruit followed by some light orange citrusy notes. Toasty malts, on the drier side, with a few touches of caramel.

3.5 T: Taste follows the nose. Lots of hops, fairly dry, and pungent. Resiny hops with pine, earth, and grapefruit. Lightly citrusy. Toasty, caramel.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very drinkable.

3.5 D: Solid IPA.

First brew from Jackie O's. I was initially skeptical of the canning process - thought it would taste weird, but I was wrong. It's excellent, and I'm looking forward to trying their other beers.

Can poured into pint glass...

Appearance: orange hue with 2 finger white head; initial tree line lacing
Smell: fruit mixed with dank hops; similar to Head Hunter
Taste: reminded me of Head Hunter at first, maybe a little lighter and fruitier
Mouthfeel: smooth on the palate, dry finish
Overall: amazing! looking forward to having this on tap. Ohio is spoiled: we really put out some great IPA's

The beer has a big aroma of a guava, mango, dried citrus and a light bready malt.

The flavor follows with juicy pineapple, mango with a heavy pine and citrus pith bitterness. Digging into the beer more, the beer leans towards heavy bitterness as the fruity hop notes begin taking a backseat.

A well done IPA.
