L: Hazy straw. Not clear enough to look filtered and not hazy enough to look unfiltered.

S: Lots of malt and bitterness. Tad soapy. Not digging it.

T: Certainly bitter. Not a helluva lot going on otherwise. First sensation is just carbonation and next is bitterness.

F: Tad watery.

O: I couldn't find a single distinguishing characteristic. It's too plain to really enjoy and too high ABV to session.

Clear bright, light yellow-gold, with a large bright white foam head and a clinging layer cake of lace.

Smell is lemon drop, eucalyptus, and a little bread. In mid-2017, since they've updated the recipe to include way more hops, the smell has become much more dank and cannabic.

Slightly bitter bite of light pine up front in taste, with some orange rind, slight dankness, and Spree. Again, mid-2017 recipe update, changes include an obvious abundance of hops, not unwelcome.

Light and tangy yet fluffy. And in mid-2017, despite the changes, I think the overall beer itself is relatively hitting the same mark and deserving of the same score. A nice, light feeling quaffable IPA.

Pours deep golden to copper in color. It is aggressively hopped and this resonates in both it's smell and flavor. Pungent, stingy, resiny, bitter, piney hops deliver a tongue lashing of hop flavor that sets this beer apart from many other IPAs you stack it up against. More of a west coast IPA with pizzazz in terms of style. An excellent offering from Jackie O's. This is one of my go-to beers.

Pours a pale amber leaning towards straw yellow with a white head.

Smells of citrus, tropical fruit, and resinous pine.

Taste is tropical fruit - mango and star fruit - followed by citrus - orange and grapefruit. There is a slight hit of malt then a heavy resinous pine flavor. A solid IPA.
