a world class ipa right here on tap at hops and pie. its listed there at 10.5% abv, and I believe it is that high. lovely red glow to this, sexy in a globe, with over an inch of white soft head, that is easily reawakened with a swish of the glass. dead sexy. yum. smells over the top hopped, whole leaf hops in the dry hop for sure, tons of oil and bitterness, above a fruity red malt base. the flavor is a hop assault, its everything from grapefruit to pine to dank and oily to downright bitter, it has the entire spectrum covered and then some. I taste the whole cones, all leafy and floral and huge. it is easily one of the hoppiest beers ive ever had, and it takes a lot to get me to say that, as a major hop head here. I cannot believe how bold and assertive this is, just punch in the face of hops. I love it, but it is indeed a palate wrecker. carbonated well, very soft feel to such a robust beer, but it gets a little heavy as it comes to room temperature, and that's when the alcohol comes out too, almost fusel in nature, hot, but still pleasant. my first beer from Jackie o, and I hope for many more. this impressed me to the max. what an ipa!

Matriarch is a bright dark orange in color, translucent, and somehow simultaneously heavy and light in the body. The creamy crown of light tan head drops creamy legging that spreads all over the glass.
This beer's aroma is big, to say the least. honey, pine, citrus, mint, and light pith balance off of lots of malts that keep it from being too harsh. It's balanced, yes, but this beer is absolutely loaded with hops.
The taste is the same with a little more bite, a touch of a slightly more peppery quality, and a light boozy note on the end.
This beer has a crisp feel, and while it's on the drier side it's juicy. It's got a medium body and lots of depth as the dryness and juiciness mingle, crispness keeps its bite, and it's still smooth all the way through.

A: translucent dark orange. fluffy large 2 finger head.

s: fresh white peach, apricot and mango. waves of citrus, grapefruit and pineapple. a strong caramel malt base underlines this amazing aroma.

t: sweet pineapple abd kiwi hit your tongue quickly before it dries up with waves of earth. strong dank pine and resin assault your tastebuds. toffee and bread round it out. a dry bitter pine finish.

m: thick with a little bit of syrup. long lingering caramel.and pine finish.

o: delish.and firing on all cylinders. juicy yet dry on the end. /91
