On-tap at Night Shift Brewing in Everett, Massachusetts.

A- Striking lighter red body with a substantial one finger pink-hued head with great retention, sticky lacing. Not something I see from beers of any style unless its a fruit lambic.

S- Floral nose mixed in with some citrus and bready malt. Even a slight bit of tartness. Smells refreshing.

F- Falls back a little bit; some citrus and biscuits mixed in together. Balanced. Some raw onions. Floral finish is bitter, not too bitter but it seems to clash a bit with the other components of the beer.

M- Medium body, a bit thin but well carbonated and creamy. The hibiscus seems to be a sort of slightly off-flavour, but not enough to get in the way of my enjoyment.

O- Maybe I just don't like hibiscus that much, but I think its particular aspects interfered slightly with the base IPA, which already had some onion character to it.

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)
