look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours dark amber with a large, lasting mousse-like head.
Nose shows lovely sweet clean malt with a cookie dough-like hint, musk sticks, fruity confectionery and mango/paw paw/rockmelon. Lovely.
Toned down flavours, some sweet clean malt, grapefruit, pine and bready notes leading to an aggressive sharp bitterness.
Carbonation is a bit over the top.

330ml brown bottle purchased from Leura Cellars.

Pours with a massively frothy head despite a gentle pour, almost escaping from the oversized pint-glass I poured it into. Colour is a slightly murky golden-orange hue. Head retains its consistency at least, even though it's still a bit insane throughout. Light body and some fine streams of carbonation. Apart from the overt head, it looks pretty good.

Nose is clean and bright, with some slightly herbal overtones. As it warms, there's a bit of green pepper as well. From the hop varieties they list on the bottle, I would have expected a bit more citrus, but it's still very pleasant.

Taste is similar, but here there's a disconnect between the dry malty notes, and the hops, which are rather biting around the edges. It's quite dry in places, and it makes the hops a bit dominant in a way that loses balance. Body is light as well.

Overall, I'm not a huge fan, but maybe it's because it's a fairly standard beer from the brewery who has set themselves up as Australia's enfants terribles. It's okay overall, but only okay.

From Jims's

A - clear amber body, puffy pillowy one finger head. Fades to ring of lace.

S - very very Moon Dog. Horse blanket, and sour.

T - more horse blanket, funk, and under all that are grapefruit and some pine. Bitter and dry finish, well into Wild Ale territory.

M - tart, refreshing, zesty.

O - ok, so the keen reader will note that this review is at odds with other reviews, however, not at odds with Moon Dog style. Ah well... Maybe an infected bottle, and certainly not IPA to style. Enjoyable anyways!!

The Jukebox is the best of the Ales, that I have tried, of the Moon Dog range and is something that's worth picking up or getting a pint of if its available.

Pouring a deep copper colour, giving off a strong sweet floral aroma, that wills you into consuming, not that you need any extra incentive.

A medium bodied IPA that packs a good punch, well more of a fierce jab, at 7.0% this beer is not exactly for those trying the IPA style for the first time.

Big hops on the front with strong floral flavours coming through, strong notes toffee on the mid-palate, and a bitter finish you have, this is a richly flavoured beer.

This is a big beer and like a lot of IPA's not exactly something you could sit on all night, still highly drinkable!

Pours a murky apricot hue with a creamy two finger head and clingy lacing everywhere,the smell is perfumey floral hops along with pine and fruit salad,the mouthfeel is medium bodied,well carbonated and super sessionable with tastes of fruit salad,a touch of pine,some light toffee and finished with a super citrus bitterness and overall a nice drop that's very sessionable cheers.
