The can may have fallen off just a touch since I didn't drink it fresh.

4-pack purchased form local grocery chain for $11.99. Can bottom dated 7/18/2017.

Dark straw colored, slightly hazy elixir poured into snifter yielding a nice 2-finger, bright white foam which survives the tasting as a think rim. Plenty of thick lacing coats the vessel.

Being a single hop IPA, the Citra hops are the star of this brew and don't disappoint. Plenty of thick tropical notes of mango, pineapple and fresh melon.

This brew hits the mark for me in multiple categories: smooth, bitter tropical hops, refreshing fruit flavors with a nice subtle spice and a mellow finish.

Nicely carbonated, medium body with the alcohol well hidden for an 8.5%er.

Jackie O's has made its rep on (mostly) BA stouts and adjunct beers but has really made an effort to create some hop-head pleasing brew. Their reworked Mystic Mama IPA is one example, but this single hop Mandala series has provided some outstanding choices as well.

12 oz can. Light golden color, thick white head slowly fades leaving lots of sticky lacing. Citrusy tropical aroma. Very tropical taste with light bready notes, a bit of yeast comes through with grapefruit peel and grassy bitterness in the end. Thin to medium slick feel.
