A: deep and slightly hazed golden ale with a few fingers of off-white head that left trails of soapy lace behind
S: wet grass and rye bread; hints of something citric, like fruit rinds; floral undertones
T: lots of hops, fruity, floral, bright and fresh; rye malt spice adds a rustic character; slightly sweet notes come through chewy and low-key
M: medium-light body, ample carbonation, smooth and slick - very easy to drink, but with a bit of heft, courtesy of the rye
O: a real nice rye IPA, which is not always an easy sell; rye and IPA fans will enjoy this for sure.

Where arguments can be made about hoppy beers and rye beers being somewhat simplistic on their own, no such thing can be debated about rye IPA. Their earthy and spicy flavors don't only blend well together; but they heighten the level that either of them can achieve on their own- an acknowledgement that Jackie O's obviously embraces.
Their Hop Ryot kicks off with a glowing pale straw color, approaching canary lightness about its edge. A silt-like haze foreshadows its unfiltered character that bursts onto the scene with aromas and early flavors of white grapefruit, whole-grain bread, sod, grain and fructose.
As its sweetness tightens, the hops pull forth with drying citrus character- orange and grapefruit of the tangy and under-ripened variety; pith, peel and pulp included. Growing bitterer deeper into its taste, an earthy and husken tone takes place. Its peppery core is spicy and earten- as if decorated with hay and straw.
Solidly bitter and dry in finish, the hops stand proud with its own grassy and piney tone. But its crisp malt backbone supports the hops well without challenging with sweetness- allowing the hops to shine and propped up with that peppery zing that only rye grain can provide.

Poured Hop Ryot into a Pint glass.
A - Pours a clear dark golden with finger and half of white head with an aggressive pour.
S - On first sniff getting tropical fruits, grapefruit, orange, a little pine in there as well. Just a bit of spicy rye.
T - Ahh, tangerine, grapefruit, spicy rye malt on first taste. Mid palate getting more rye and piney hops. On the finish it has the aftertaste of tropical fruit with more pine.
M - Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Smooth beer.
O - My go to Rye IPA. Cheers!

Pours hazy golden orange with dense off white head.
Spicy aroma in the nose with considerable citrus and pine. Plenty of toasted malt character as well.
More spice in the initial sip with a lingering piney bitterness that cuts through the malt profile. Pleasing hop bitterness that also showcases the rye. I'm not sure if the haze is from the hops or the malt bill. It doesn't detract from the beer but also doesn't entice.
Chewy mouthfeel that is medium bodied but the carbonation bring a crisp bite.
Overall the focal point in hop ryot seems to be to hit the drinker with a dose of piney American hops. Rye comes through during all phases but in the end a linger spice and pine stick out. This is a delicious beer and sneaky at above 6%.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours fairly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate caramel/rye malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness and rye spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, light caramel, spicy rye, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate rye/caramel malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice rye IPA! All around great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate caramel/rye malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
