Poured 12oz can to pint glass. Hazy yellow color with one finger head that held nicely. Pungent hoppy smell with rye shining through. Bitter on the front of palate was not to my liking. Medium feel as the rye lingers.

12 oz can into a lager glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a moderate size off-white head. Very nice lacing. Good retention.

Aroma: Strong and hoppy ... an IPA I could smell right after popping the tab. Fruity and a bit pungent, with tropical fruits that include pineapple.

Flavor: The substantial hop load imparts abundant tropical fruit notes. There's a bit of added complexity from the rye. The bitterness is medium: lower than the hoppy aroma suggests, and perhaps a touch lower than average for a 2015 American IPA (no complaints here). Good balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light. Crisp, medium-high carbonation.

Overall: recommended, especially as a Rye IPA. I had this paired with another Ohio Rye IPA, Four String Skeleton Red IPA: The Jackie O's was way more fruity, less earthy, less bitter, more complex, better balanced and lighter colored, but sported a less frothy and durable head.

Pours a hazy golden straw color. Aroma is hops a rye. Flavor is hoppy up front with rye on the back of the tongue. Has good balance and a bit of a dry finish. Overall a solid IPA

Fantastic colors - bright, happy yellow contrasting with the white head that left a nice coating on the glass.
Grassy aroma
Hops abound in the beginning but fade quickly leaving you wanting to experience again.
Carbonation keeps the feel light and leaving you to ask yourself how sessionable is it.
Overall - well done and not over-sold.

Really good, balanced beer. I'm not always a fan of rye beers, so this might be a rye for such a person. I felt the rye was pretty subtle. Tasted, mostly, like a great, well-balanced IPA. Really enjoyed it.

12 oz can, stamped 7/14/15 on the bottom

pours a slightly hazy medium golden in colo, foamy white head, good lacing. pale malt aroma with a ton of hops on top. don't really pick up the rye in the flavor. expected some darker malt to work with the rye. too unbalanced for me, a bit too bitter. thinner bodied.
