Hitting another @WesMantooth beer, this is my first from Jackie O's. Canned August 11, 2017 per the stamp on the bottom.

Poured into a shaker pint glass, this is an almost clear golden hued shade of amber, with a bif, off-white head that left lots of lace in the "beer neglige" pattern.

Big, grapefruity and spicy hop aroma to this. Pretty sure this isn't a NE-style IPA.

Big, hoppy, grapefruit-like flavor as well, but with a substantial malt backbone, at least when compared to similar IPAs brewed on the west coast or the PNW. I've come to feel this is not unusual for Midwest IPAs. In this one, it doesn't stick out to the point where it's distracting to me, but it's just a little different. There's also a piney, sappy bitterness to this that offers a counterpoint to the sweeter, citrusy notes. Kinda reminds me of what is becoming the old school PNW IPA.

Medium bodied, with a thick, oily and resiny mouthfeel.

Nice, old school IPA that harkens back to a time when IPAs were a bit more bitter and a little less approachable and fruit forward. No one form of IPA doctrine has really captured me, but I do dig something like this. Great stuff!

Poured a clear straw color, with a 2 finger head that settlled but left a thin cap throughout.
Smell is dank, pine, citrus.
Taste is a huge bombardment of all things hoppy. Citrus, then pine, then a dank resinous marijuanna, and grapefruit. Leaves a nice sticky piney after taste.
Feel is an easy drinking medium body, average carbonation.
Overall I'm very impressed by this west coast style IPA. Most IPAs are either citrus or pine, not both. I'm able to pick out pine, resin, grapefruit, etc without it being a jumbled mess.

A: a hay orange in color, with a decent white head.

S: huge grapefruit, sweet orange peel, and tropical fruit with a touch of caramel.

T: orange peel and a touch of resin. Citrus bitterness, and a touch of caramel.

M: medium thick with moderate carbonation.

O: after hearing so many wonderful things about this brewery, this brew is kinda run of the mill. Not bad, just not outstanding either.

Served to me in draft in a pint glass, this beer draws a great, medium golden color with several streams of little
Bubbles fairly rapidly and continously rising to the beer's surface. Has a white head that's about about an inch thick when first served that settles eventually to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with some small cluster swirls of foam on the beer's surface. Aromas of some bready, slightly caramel malts and an herbal, floral, piney hop smell. Has a bready, slightly caramel and sweet, malt taste followed by a nice herbal, floral, and piney hip bitterness. The hops here so dominate the flavor profile a bit. Has a lightly crisp, smooth and frothy, slightly oily, medium bodies mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean, dry finish and aftertaste. A very solid IPA here.

Pay no mind to the BA and Bro score on this one. I would have rated this beer the same, this time last year but the recipe was altered in 03-2017 and it is phenomenally better. Trust me, it is much better now than the past ratings credit it for, thus is why the individual ratings are quite good as of late. It is a hoppy, citrusy masterpiece. This west coast style India Pale Ale is now top 5 in the single IPA class among Ohio breweries, and Ohio has some phenomenal breweries when measuring up to other counterparts throughout the country.
