(Update: I tried this again at the brewery and found it to be a much better experience. I can only guess that perhaps the lines were dirty or fouled at the brew pub where I first had it. I adjusted my scores appropriately)
I am a huge fan of Tin Roof and so I was very excited about their seasonal IPA offering. I had my first experience with it today, and, while it was not what I was expecting, it was a very drinkable beer.
The color is nice, a rich golden pour with a nice head that subsides to a good amount of lacing. My biggest detraction is the aroma, or lack thereof. Tin Roof's other seasonals have excelled in their aromatic distinction, so the lack of a good, heady smell left me a little surprised.
Taste wise, I found Juke Joint to be a little thin, but very palatable. Purposefully brewed with a lower IBU and ABV than many IPAs, the bitterness that most hopheads are looking for is not to be found here. However, for the casual IPA drinker, this may be a welcome respite.
All told, it certainly was not my favorite of Tin Roof's seasonals, but it is still a good beer, one that I'm sure I will sample many more times before the next offering is released.

Pours a medium copper color, with an off-white finger of head, nice lacing. Aroma had some citrus and pine, but mostly floral hop notes with a bready maltiness. Aroma want too aromatic. Taste had a medium bitterness, citrus and floral hoppy notes, and an equally malty backbone. Oily, medium body, good overalls slick feel.
After the Parade Ground being so delicious, I had high hopes for this, but ultimately, it was pretty average.
