Pours golden in color with a very subtle haze to it. Aroma is hoppy, piney, and fresh, with some tropical notes lingering in the background. It's flavor is lashing of hops at first. Some pine spruce is present, but the hop flavor seems to transition back and forth between pine and tropical fruit notes. Either way the hop intensity is alive and well in this one, it's just not purely pine like I was expecting. It's an interesting offering from Jackie O's and a great drinker in my opinion.

12oz can (canned on 05/31/16) served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Hazy pale gold. Initial 1/4" thick white foam died back to a thick ring and just a few islands of foam floating on top. Fine strands and a few islands of lacing.

Smell: Upon first cracking open the can, a very strong hit of fresh cut pine. With a bit of warming up, the pine dissipates and is not as strong, and is accented with a hint of peach and tropical fruit. The pine (fir) is still there though as the major aroma.

Taste: Not very hoppy up front - some pineapple, peach, cracker-like malt flavors, and then the pine shows up. And it shows up slowly and strongly. Starts as just pine bitterness, and then lingers quite a bit and gets stronger, especially in the back of the throat.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, a bit prickly. Sticky with resin and oils on the teeth. Nice thickness under all of those other senstations.

Overall / Drinkability: I am confident I would not be able to have more than one per evening, but this is a neat beer. I like the aroma that this beer provides. The finish takes some getting use to, but it works with all the other flavors in this beer. I had this by itself, and due to the unique flavors I'm not sure what it would pair with. A strong flavored fish maybe? A good AIPA and one that accentuates that classic AIPA pine hop flavor, but with actual pine rather than hops.

12 oz can. Pours light golden color with a slight haze and thin white head, fades leaving some soapy lace. Light malt aroma with citrus and grassy notes. Taste is filled with sprucy piney grassy bitterness. This dominant flavor lasts well past the sip. Thin to medium slick feel.

I really have never enjoyed any beers from this brewery and I am not an IPA fan.
This beer presents an unique smell coupled with a taste. Why don't more brewers use pine.

JackieO's gets athumbs up!

Yum. Definitely get the pine and resin in this one. Super hot outside as I enjoy this beverage and its ice cold. Refreshing and very satisfactory. Approved.

As advertised resinous, coniferous. Spruce tip is mild but overall a bit much for me between the tips, pine & Hop , a real chewer that's too bitter to finish from the can. If piney is your thing, enjoy, it's a one & done for me.

Can dated 5-10-16. Plastic cup at Mapfre Stadium.

A: slightly hazy gold with 1 finger off-white head and lots of carb. Retains a thick skim across the top and laces very, very well.

S: pine and tropical. Smells remarkably like my other fave Jackie o's, mystic mama. A little more underlying sweetness.

T: milder hoppy, piney arrival than mystic mama. Definite white bread malt sweetness. Very nice.

M: well- carbonated, lighter side of midweight. Not totally clean, but no slickness.

O: I like! Very good pine-forward sweeter IPA, a hint of floral and tropical, and without a hint of cat pee.

Bright yellow with a chill haze, and a medium, fluffy white head that retains a substantial, clingy blanket.

Smell is orange, earth, slightly pungent hop, with an evenly distributed ginger and apricot blend.

Taste is citrus, spruce, with floral notes.

Lightly bitter, semi-dry, very drinkable, but may be a little odd as I witnessed others that were having their first spruce tip brew. Pennsylvania Tuxedo is by far my favorite, but this really is a good attempt and strikes a different path than Dogfish.

Not sure if I'll enjoy a spruce tip IPA, but could be fun. Canned 5-19-16.

Pours a nice foamy fizzy 1+ finger head that fades at a med pace, decent spotty lacing, clear light pale yellow almost watery color.

Nose an interesting nose for sure, a little floral spruce tip pine note, floral hops, a little citrus, mild pine, an earthy pine note, little generic fruitiness, mild sweet malt in the background, maybe even a touch of honey note, a little orange rind pith.

Taste brings more spruce tip right out front, a little pine sap note, but more floral grassy spruce character, fruity as well, little candied orange zest and pith notes, generic fruity with a little tanginess, mild candy sweet malt in the background, fair grassy spicy hop too, Dry spicy hop finish, a little sticky note, lingering spruce tip floral grassy flavor, a little pine earthiness.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall not bad, not my fav flavors for an ipa, but not as bad as I expected.

12 oz can poured into snifter canned on 5/31

A: light gold body with great clarity and looks like decent carbonation. Small bubbled white head that thins to a film except at the edges

S: very piney with a pilsner smell to it a little spicy hop nose

T: light hops floral piney with a touch of spice not super piney like the can suggests a light crackery malt backbone

M: lighter with a crisp and bubbly carbonation

O: This beer doesn't have enough taste to be offensive and it doesn't have enough taste to be good its mildly drinkable
