(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.

Tin Roof Juke Joint IPA has a thick, egg-shell colored head, a mostly clear, bubbly, amber appearance, a heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet malt and pineapple hop resin. Taste is of the same, with bitterness that become more noticeable in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Tin Roof Juke Joint IPA finishes semi-dry and highly drinkable for a 7% alcohol beer.

Glad to find this in cans!
A: Pours a slightly hazy amber orange with a nice two-finger whitish head into a pint glass.
S: Citrus fruit, some pine, touches of malt but mostly hops.
T: Up front citrus fruit; grapefruit, orange, and some lemon. Also some nice grassy and piney hops. Taste definitely better than the nose.
M: Medium bodied and smooth with average bitterness for the style.
O: A solid IPA from Tin Roof. Definitely don't regret grabbing a six pack!
