Satisfaction Jacksin forms a creamy, meringue-like, craggy head on even an easy pour. The foam is dirty white with a respectable stickiness that sheets the glass on the way down. The foam certainly shows staying power. This sticky head sits atop a harvest orange body that, when backlit, glows from top to bottom.Carbonation seems to burst from every surface of the glass. A damn fine looking beer!

Orange and earth come to the forefront in the nose. The orange is like marmalade with a touch of spice while the earth is herbal and slightly dank. The orange is rich, even syrupy at times, like a glaze. Soft caramel runs a current through the background while joined by freshly baked bread notes. The big dose of Centennial lends good depth and a rich character. Different, savory, unique.

While the nose was savory and rich the flavor profile is juicy and sweet. Upfront the nose is full of orange oils, marmalade, and juice that follows through to the middle where it's met by some soft herbal characteristics. The middle segues into the savory, rich orange again with earth-y notes of damp soil and that dank forest note that's so hard to pinpoint where exactly itcomes from.

The body sits squarely in the middle of the spectrum at moderate while the active carbonation lightens it up on the backend. The bitterness is soft at first but grows with each successive sip to a sturdy moderate. The finish dries up slowly and a whiff of booze creeps up the nasal cavity. While the bubbles are active they're also soft giving the body a plush feel. Highly drinkable to be sure.

The first couple bottles of this I tried, I wasn't as big a fan as I am now. It's unique, it has a ton of depth, and it's old school. The Centennial is bold and dense while the malt base is flavorful and complimentary, unlike so many of the pale single mindedness malt profiles being thrown around today. I like this beer, it's good!

I first tried this beer a few years ago. I didn't buy it again until September 2015. After the first go, I thought it was mediocre at best. This time around, my opinion is much higher. This batch is wonderful.

I've really only had this seasonal at the brewery itself. And yeah, it can be a bit overly malty fer an IIPA. So that makes me wonder if there is performance anxiety out of the bottle? As that to me, would explain the questionable overall rating I see here from my fellow beer lovers. But hey, I see where you might be sayin' - all these folks on BA think this is just an OK IIPA beverage, how can they be wrong? To that I ask, is it possible you all are not quite right in the head? Cuz we all know, it ain't me.
