I have been very impressed with most all the Jackie O's, lets see if this one keep the pace.

Body is a hazy deep orange in tone. A bit lighter then I had expected. Head is an inch and a half of fuzzy, creamy foam that sticks around for quite a while. No lace is left but this head has some excellent retention.

Nose is of orange and lemon zest up front. I get a bit of freshly bailed hay on the nose as well.

As I take the first sip and let it trickle off the sides of my tongue my taste buds are immediately flooded with loads of citrus. Peppery spice notes take over once the citrus fades. Almost a hint of raw oak plays in the flavor as well.

Overall a solid brew that is nicely drinkable. It has a good balance of citrus and spice that makes it work as a everyday brew for me.

Date: 10/31/14
Location: Received in trade from JSquire
Draught/Bottle: Can
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Light copper in color that becomes much paler towards the edges. Large and fluffy off white head that has average retention and good lacing.
Aroma: Pungent citrus aromas, smells of orange and grapefruit zests with a lighter scent of a pineapple. Touch of Light pepper from the rye and and slightly biscuity Pale malts.
Taste: The hop flavor is just as pungent and piney as the in the flavoring. The rye malts are just as spicy in the flavor. The pale ale malt hits more buttery biscuit notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium body medium carbonation. The beer has great drinkability and is very easy to put back. The hop bitterness adds a nice dryness.

Notes: Canned 10/1/14
