Notes: This Juicy Hazy IPA showcases Mosaic and Cashmere hops which explode with aromas of peach, guava and tangerine. Fruity and juicy, a generous amount of oats are added to give Juicy Jack a rich, full bodied flavor.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy gold with a one finger head and some lacing, smells peachy and citrusy, tastes peachy and citrusy but finishes with a bitter hoppy aftertaste, and has a clean mouthfeel other than the bitter aftertaste. Overall, it is a pretty good NEIPA. My only complaint was the bitter finish that I normally don’t anticipate in a NEIPA.

12 oz. can - Canned on 01/18/19:

Pours hazy/cloudy yellow. A thin head lasts and leaves some lacing.

The smell is fruity - tangerine and peach.

The taste is of peaches, tangerine, tropical fruits.

It is creamy and very smooth. Restrained bitterness.

An excellent rendition of a New England-style IPA. Nice, fruity easy-to-drink.

Golden yellow in color. Turbid in appearance. Jack is basically mango and peach puree. Nice amount of sweetness. Creamy feel. Lower bitterness. Solid NE style IPA.

A: Very hazy orange/yellow with rich white foam and thick lacing.
N: Mango, orange, hops, and some pine.
T: Follows the nose, very fresh up front with good mango/peach notes, solid hops hit and a resin like finish.
M: Very fresh up front with a bite on the finish, clean citrus throughout.
O: Great beer just a little harsh on the finish. If this was smoother it would be a great beer, but the bitterness sort of took it down some for me. Still a nice offering but I wish it was less West Coast and more East Coast as I anticipated.

Picked up a single from TW Arrowhead 2-7-19 for $2.19. Canned on 1-2-19; consumed on 5-8-19. Cold stored since purchase.

Beer poured a hazy golden orange with a very nice white head with the initial pour.

Nose is very orange and mango forward.

Taste is orange and mango over a medium malt base. Finishes with an every so slight touch of rind - 2/10 on the bitterness scale.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall a nice effort from SanTan. I see they have it in the regular rotation at the Uptown Brewpub which i will need to have on my next visit.

Got in a trade with AZBeerDude72. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 6/5/2019. Pours very hazy deep golden/orange/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, coconut, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, pine, wheat, white bread dough, biscuit, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, coconut, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, pine, wheat, white bread dough, biscuit, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, floral, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, coconut, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, pine, wheat, white bread dough, biscuit, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, fairly sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is a fantastic NEIPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish; great soft feel. Amazing Mosaic/Cashmere profile. Extremely juicy and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a perfectly balanced wheat/oat/malt backbone. Light residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding spot on style example. Loved the hop profile as expected.

Had this at PHX airport waiting for a flight. Looks amazing, very cloudy and dark orange with a fluffy head. Smell was very forward and fruity. Taste matched, literally quite juicy like biting into a mango and pineapple. Lots of beer here,,lush. Left a nice lingering aftertaste. I wish I could get this in the east, damn good.
