Electric JellyfishElectric Jellyfish
Notes: Brewed with some of our favorite new hop varieties from our favorite hop farmers - Citra, Simcoe, Chinook, Ekuanot, Azacca, and Galaxy. Electric Jellyfish is filled with a bright tropical citrus character along with notes of orange, mango, lychee, and a floral backbone. The Jellyfish is a hazy new school IPA focusing on the juicy hop flavor and aroma while keeping the bitterness balanced and refreshing.

look: 4.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Hazy gold with good head and retention. Poured from the tap into a cold pint glass.

Aroma: Weak citrus.

Taste: Tropical fruit juice plus grapefruit along with some pine. Not overly bitter. The taste was very pronounced, which was surprising with the lack of aroma.

Feel: Smooth with good carbonation. Just the slightest bit dry but not in a negative way.

Overall: Great tasting and very refreshing IPA.

Pairing: The tropical fruit of this beer was balanced well by a spicy jambalaya. Think of a mango-habanero or similar combination.

Poured from the can into a snifter glass.

Dark orange, with a hue of dark yellow lemon. Three finger classic head off white with an excellent collar, bowled and thick.

Aroma is hop forward but lacks exotics and wow factor. Mild touches of tropical fruit, and a powdery flour and even sugar note minus the big sweetness .

Palate is straightforward. Mild tropics and a thick but not overkill mouthfeel. Supportive flavor of light orange and tropical fruit, mixing a dense flour flavor of malt.

Decent Ipa, but nothing crazy

Good beer with moderate bitterness. More pine, grapefruit with maybe some citrus notes (tangerine?).

Good summer IPA with a light body.

Enjoyed many times, working through a 50L keg. Darker golden hazy, thick white head with long retention and lacing. Nose mainly citrus. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, and piney. Above average body and average carbonation.

Pours a very hazy, bright gold color with a very slim head that leaves a good lacing on the glass. Not a strong a smell, but the taste is strong with pineapple, guava and flora hops. Sits well and is very easy drinking.

So this is Austin’s best selling IPA, or so I am told. Pours slightly hazy. Low aroma, but big burst of pineapple, guava, and orange on the sip. I can see why this is so popular.

Poured on 1/2/22 from a can labeled 12/10/21. Great tight white head with great retention. Haze is delicate, overall translucent. Smell is dank overall with some tangerine and other citrus notes. Flavor is citrusy with modest bitterness and sweet notes at the finish. Overall one of the better IPAs I’ve had lately. I love the dank notes which give it some novelty in the landscape of citra/mosaic clones out there.

Finally a great beer here at the yard house. I believe I’ve had this before but not sure I rated it. It is indeed outstanding like it’s rating. One might even say world class. New England style. Hop forward but smooth finish. But lingering dankness which is excellent. Pine through and through. Effervescent. Great beer.

Orange, some foam.

Kind of like Lagunitas Brown Shugga, not sweet like fruit. Pine from Chinook & Simcoe stands out.

But if an edge but definitely easy coast.

On draft. Hazy orange with a thin quickly dissipating head. Pungent hop and citrus aroma. Taste is grapefruit/orange/tangerine. Carbonation is medium low and the heft is fairly light. Overall, a nice NEIPA with some bitterness bite.

On draft at yardhouse, surprised i found it. Pours a super hazy orange color with a thin white head. Smells rich of citrus, nice malt backbone, pine resin. Taste follows the nose, hops & malt is perfectly balanced. Medium-Full bodied, smooth, crisp, biting. Really great, balanced, refreshing beer.

Serving: On tap at Hops & Thyme (Lakeway, TX), served in a shaker pint.

Appearance: Opaque, hazy golden yellow with a lush head of fine white bubbles. Nice rings of lace coat the glass on the way down.

Smell: Plenty of citrus - grapefruit, orange, flesh and zest - along with sweet tropical notes and a hint of pine and jasmine.

Taste: Smooth, juicy fruit without too much sweetness. Grapefruit, mandarin, lychee, mango and a light malty backbone. Softly bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, creamy smooth feel, and moderate but fine carbonation.

Overall: Another solid take on NEIPA from Texas - big, juicy hops but very well balanced.

This beer is overhyped. Canned 2/11/2021

A: Murky yellow with whiteish head that settles thick.
S: Grapefruit nose with perceptible astringency
T: Wants to be juicy, but isn’t. One dimensional bitter all the way with not-so-nice rubbery dry hop burn that lingers.
Mf: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation
Overall: Disappointing considering the price. Might have been better fresh but this is a mediocre NEIPA at 30 days old.

tallboy dated 12/30/20. good riddance. "give my love to Rose" quoted in true ATX fashion under the date.

pours a hazy mellow yellow gold body with slight red tinges on the outer rims and a billowing frothy white foam head with moderately high retention that leaves thick splatterings of lacing as it settles to a rocky cap

aroma is floral yet spicy grapefruit, zesty orange, sweet and lush mango and passion fruit, earthy yet sweet peach, and grass. this all punches on a dank, floral level.

taste follows the nose for the most part. an expertly melded combination of dank and intense fruit hop flavor profiles. the hops even occasionally meander into herbal and grassy notes but all tug right back into the floral and fruitiness.

moderately high carbonation and medium-light body, goes smooth with occasional hop-bitterness bites, and finishes barely-dry with a lingering herbal bitterness that coats the tongue and cheeks.

overall:
one of the best hometown heroes ATX has. the layers of hop available here is great, and it manages to be a highly enjoyable sit'n'sipper. if there is a shade of hop that you enjoy outside of "pine" you can look forward to likely meeting it here along with several like-minded friends. would absolutely hands down include this on any flight looking to note any of the 6 hops on display here.

Had this beer on tap the other day. Most excellent hazy IPA. It was good to the last drop.

As apposed to a Hendrix Purple haze It's more like an orange/citrus haze.

Smells like a hoppy lemony/Grapefruit spring morning in the Texas hill country.

Tastes wonderful and refreshing. After the first sip I knew I would be ordering a second.

I'm highly recommending you find yourself one. Or maybe even two!
