The appearance had a super nice looking glazed over bronzed yellow to light orange color to it. A nice one finger white foamy head appeared and dissipated within about a good thirty seconds. The smell, wow, had a big punch of citrus to light spice to a light pininess. The taste was there and packed a super nice punch of citrus flavoring coating my tastebuds. There’s a nice spritzy to light citrus/pine aftertaste leading to a crisp and somewhat dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation is good for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a good AIPA that I would have again.

This is a wonderful citrusy IPA with just enough bitterness. It actually looks lighter than it tastes (deceiving and a wonderful surprise). I've heard of this brewer and was lucky to have a friend bring some back from OH.

12oz can purchased for $1.89 from local Heinens. 5/9/2017 stamped on bottom.

Clear straw-gold elixir poured into snifter yields a large, fluffy head which dissipates to a thick rim. Plenty of lacing.

Very fresh tropical fruit aroma, mostly pineapple, mango and kiwi. I don't get any pine or dank resin.

The taste is a mellow bitterness with tropical fruits now mixed and mingling with some pine, grapefruit and spice.

Well carbonated, a bit resinous with a lingering hop bitterness.

This is a nice change from the original recipe with very nice tropical fruit forward hops replacing some of the malt bill.

Have enjoyed this beer for years. They tweaked the recipe from 3/29/17 and on. It now has a huge citrus aroma from the second you open the can. A little less clean just a touch of dank. Very piney huge grapefruit bitter and smooth at the same time. Bravo. JO never disappoints.

Vintage optics: Clear golden straw color, billowy head, strong carbonation. Aroma is very dry, viney and earthy, which isn't my personal preference. Smells like dry Simcoe pellets, maybe a little malt grain in the background. Taste is Simcoe heavy, lots of chalkiness, grass, hopcone. A tad vegetal. Needs more balance from other hop varietals. Mouthfeel is fine.

Pours a pale yellow, with a large white head. Head is light, fluffy, and large. It takes some time for it to fall back into the brew, and leaves behind heaps of spotted lacing. Lively carbonation can be seen quickly rising up to meet the beers surface. I smell pineapples, peaches, and sugar. The nose is not bitter at all, with the malt coalescing beautifully with hop aromas to smell like a tropical bowl of fruit. The flavor is grassy, pine, slightly cracker like. None of the fruit flavors the nose hinted at. Lightly bitter, but very one note for me. Right at the end, as the last of the brew washes down, you get a hint of lemon. The beer is light on the palate, and the carbonation is present, but never overbearing. The slight bitterness makes for a slightly dry beer, but not overly so. Overall a very well presented beer, but lacking in complexity for my tastes. A good beer to knock back with a few friends, but not one I'd want to drink alone.

Acquired from mtanoury74 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, some citrus and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a mild citrus and caramel sweetness. Then a strong grassy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is on the thin side for the style but brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA to drink for a long time.
