Growler shared by Kan. Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - White foam settles to a thick collar, wisps, and a few spots of lace. Hazy dark orange-brown body.

S - Lots of Citra hops, with juicy orange, tropical fruits, and a hint of dank onion. Fairly balanced, with the expected sugar cookie malts and a touch of brown sugar as well.

T - Similar to the aroma, but with not quite as much malt character. Lots of citrus flesh and a touch of rind, and a few slightly herbal notes. There's moderate bitterness that grows over time.

M - Medium body, pleasant crisp carbonation, some lingering oily hop resins amid the dry finish. No alcohol presence.

D - A solid and well-crafted DIPA. The reviews on Ratebeer seem unusually high, but if you like Citra hops you certainly won't be disappointed by this one. If I were at Jackie O's I'd definitely order this one again.

I had this on-tap during the anniversary celebration. Served in a tasting glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a clear amber color with a hint of gold. There is a quarter finger of fluffy off white head that fades to a layer on top of the pour and leaves some lace on the glass.

Smell: Juicy citrus hops with some pineapple and tangerine mixed in. There is a good amount of sweetness backing up the hops. Tons of fresh citra.

Taste: This reminds me of a west coast DIPA. There is no heat that would have clued me in to the abv. Citrus hop bitterness balanced by a the malty sweetness. The finish is quite bitter.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with fluffy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very nice beer that showcases the citra hops. I enjoyed it and would be interested in having more.

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!

Maybe what I having is already on BA, but the growler tag says "Citra Mandela". Merge if need be.

Huge thanks to JM03 for this beauty!

Pours a dark orange, somewhat hazed, with a finger of cream colored head. Juicy, juicy citrus aroma! Orange, zest, cream, bread. Taste is bitter, fruity, orange, grapefruit and a touch of lemon. Malts in the back . Full bodied creamy and substantial! Dipa heft in full force!

Sad day, when this growler is gone....

John! Ohioan! Live at JO'S :D
