Very nice floral and citrus aroma. Sweet.

Grapefruit taste, some grassy hops. Sweet and flowery.

This beer is hoppy but not overly hoppy. A very drinkable IPA, i think those who aren't big IPA fans would also enjoy it.

Serving type: growler
Glass type: Tulip.

4.29/5  rDev +16.9%

Poured from a 750ml bottle (bottled on 2-27-14) into a 17oz Rastal balloon glass.

A- As soon as it leaves the glass, the visual contribution from the hibiscus is immediate. Although it is pink as it leaves the bottle, the resulted collection in the glass reveals a hazy (yet attractive) blood-orange with a 1-1/2 finger, creamy white head. Streams of carbonation make their way up the sides of the glass. (4.25)

S- Absolutely bright and refreshing. I am immediately hit with notes of tropical fruit (passionfruit, guava, mango), citrus flesh (orange, grapefruit, lemon). (4.5)

T- Although dominated by citrus hops, it is not abrasive. As a matter of fact, the flavor is that of sweet citrus flesh/pulp (dominated by grapefruit) as opposed to the rind. Although brewed with Chinook, there is nary a presence of resiny pine. After the palate is done from drying out and recovers from the hop bitterness, a slight herbal quality from the hibiscus can be detected. (4.25)

M- a malt bill that sports a modest 5.9% ABV, it should come as no surprise that this is a light-bodied offering. Along with substantial carbonation, JoJo is a light and refreshing. Coupled with the citrus zing from the hops, this is one highly drinkable beer. (4.25)

O- This is an ideal beer for the warmer weather. Additionally, for an IPA that is just over 3-months old (I like to consume mine within 90days of bottling), the aromas and flavors are still quite pungent and 'pop' with life. Thus far, I have been impressed with everything I have sampled from Night Shift and JoJo is no exception. If you can get it, and acquire it fresh, do yourself a favor and this out. (4.25)

This was a visually appealing beer. Poured into a teku glass, the beer was a pink/orange color. There was a medium-sized white head with a little bit of lace.

A nice floral and citrus aroma. Sweet.

Grapefruit taste, some grassy hops. Sweet and flowery.

This beer was well-hopped. A very drinkable IPA, and pretty to look at, to boot.

4 ounce pour directly at the brewery.

A pinkish body in the glass which is kinda reflected in tasting. Has a very dry tea like feel; flavor is strong citrus and tropical fruits, very refreshing. An enjoyable IPA for sure that is more floral and nuanced than your typical hop bomb.
