3.5/5  rDev -10%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a light yellow-amber translucent body. Head is 1/4 inch thick and pearly white. Lacing and head retention were slightly above average.

Smell is very light, floral hops with piney bitterness. Some sweet malts are also there but no alcohol detected.

Taste is light and a mix of tropical fruit, sweet caramel malt and floral notes. Slight rye/spiciness at the end. Alcohol isn't very present

Mouthfeel was light and had average amount of carbonation. Head didn't contribute much and body was on the lighter side.

Overall, this beer was tasty but nothing extraordinary besides the sweet can design. I think this IPA drinks more like a pale ale, didn't have the hop flavors I crave when I crack open a IPA. Glad I received it as an extra in a trade but don't think I'll be searching this one out ever.

Excited to see another Jackie O's can show up, the Hop Ryot you guessed hit is an Rye IPA. Pours a hazed copper hue with fine bubbled off white head, fine even banded lacing. Aroma spicy rye hits you up front and center, with citric grapefruit rinds, herbal, and pine accented hop profile the can just says brewed with rye malt and lotsa hops. Rye gives it a creamy spiced bread character, hop pellets are providing healthy levels of hop bitterness citrus peel and mild pine cone flavors very earthy slightly abrasive on the palate, creamy textured. Mouthfeel has smooth carbonation their house yeast always give me just a hint of medicinal or band aid phenolic character but not overpowering to the extent that it ruins the beer for me. Carbonation works just fine, again the creamy texture and luscious light hop oils blends to a smooth finish herbal/pine earthy hop bitterness does not stick around it actually finishes quite clean for a beer with lotsa hops. Overall, lotsa hops a bit of a rye malt base with caramelized sugars decent definitely not mind blowing why don't they release any of their big or wild beers statewide, it bums me out.

This one is a keeper- pours a hazy light orange color with a finger of head, modest retention and lacing.

Smell is awesome- plenty of hops and rye spiciness with a hint of malt sweetness. Piney and earthy.

Taste is much the same- lots of earthy hops through and through along with omnipresent rye and a touch of barley malt. Very long juicy hoppy dry finish.

Mouthfeel is great- medium body, moderately carbonated. Can't stress how good this is- get it if you're a hop head, like rye, or so any luck both!
