look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I had this on tap at the brewpub twice, once with regular carb and once with nitro. This turned out to be a VERY solid DIPA, my favorite hoppy beer to date from Jackie O's.

It pours a clear copper color, with about 2 fingers of fine foam on top which eventually recedes to a nearly non-existent ring. The aroma is all Citra hop, grapefruit and other acidic citrusy aromas, very appetizing. I can smell the sweet caramel malts beneath but only barely, the Citra is used to good advantage. The flavor is all hops, aggressively astringent and immediately addictive. The initially scathing hop presence is tempered by some lingering sweetness in the aftertaste, albeit with a lasting hop burn on the tongue.

The body is thicker than expected for 8.2% ABV, fairly heavy feeling. It actually tastes like it might be higher than 8.2% too, but it could be a suggestion from the strength of the flavors. Anyway it's very quick drinking, I've had many glasses now (mostly from growlers throughout a day of NFL) and I'm still loving it. Great job Brad!
