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

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.

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

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

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

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!

Bought this beer at HEB grocery off Burnet/2222. A case of 4 pint size cans will cost you $18.
Ive heard a lot of great things about this beer and they were all true!
Great taste and drinkability, not overly hoppy. Outstanding beer, I loved it!

16oz canned 9-22-20. Purchased 10-5-20 at the South Lamar location, opened 10-17-20.
3 finger off-white head with a portion peeking over the rim of the glass. Excellent retention. Dense foam with a fine bead.
Pale orange-gold IPA and fully opaque from a well integrated pour. Thick and sticky lacing.
Aromas of citrus, pineapple, and pine...dig in to a juicy and clean nose.
Tasty and ripe flavors of orange, citrus peel, pineapple, mango, all riding on a puffy cloud of a malt base.
Full body, soft mouthfeel and low bitterness...spot on to style. Zesty and medium length off-dry finish.
Drinkability and flavor is off the charts.
Outstanding.

This beer is fantastic, just found cans for the first time. Price tag made me flinch a bit, 17$ for a 4 pack of 16oz cans, but I got it cause I’ve never seen them in cans. One was a few OZ short, my disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined. (Seriously though, step up your can game!). Delicious!

3.93/5  rDev -8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Notes from 5/8/2020.
Poured from a 32oz crowler into a Rastal nucleated Teku glass.
The body is hazy orange with 1 finger of white head. Retention is somewhat above average leaving a cap and thick lacing all the way down the glass. When poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass, it has 2 1/2 fingers of pillowly head.
The intensity of aroma is low. There are notes of grapefruit, mango, and an unfortunate burnt rubber smell that I hope does not carry over to the taste.
The intensity of taste is medium. The flavor has mango, a little apricot, pine, and a bitter finish that's just below medium-high. I do not taste burnt rubber unless I swirl the brew over my tongue with my mouth open to increase the flavors in the end palate. Even then, the burnt rubber flavor is very light. This is a well balanced, easy drinking, and delicious IPA.
The feel is thick, very juicy, super creamy like nothing I have had before, and there's a medium astringency level. The head is extremely soft and pillowly. Oops! I finished the crowler.
Overall, the brew scores high at so many levels that it's hype worthy. The burnt rubber smell seemed to just be in the initial pour. I cannot overemphasize how drinkable this brew is.

Oh, the famous jelly juice. If you like grapefruit IPAs then you will live this one. If not, maybe not so much. Reminds me of Spindletap’s Houston Haze. A rival to Lone Pint’s Yellow Rose for the best IPA in Texas.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives a hazy honey color with a one finger head; good retention and quite the smattering of lace

Smell: Rather dank with a weedy character: aspirin-like bitterness

Taste: As with the aroma, this is very dank; not much of a fruit character my, neither tropical nor citrus; aspirin bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Another disappointing experience with a Texas NE IPA; a decent beer but not what I was anticipating

As an IPA enthusiast visiting Austin, I was excited to try out a top-rated IPA from one of Austin's top beer gardens. The look was really rad with that sick haze and the smell was floral and fruity, so I thought it was going to be an awesome, complex taste experience. However, the smell and appearance did deceive - this one tastes like burnt rubber smells! Maybe I had a bad pour, but the experience was terrible enough that I'm unwilling to blow 6 dollars on a second chance.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance -The beer is served a hazy orange amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades slowly over time to leave a little bit of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell - The aroma of the brew is strongest of a tangerine, tropical fruits, and grapefruit. Along with this are some aromas of grass and herb
Taste- The taste begins with a tangerine citrus taste with notes of tropical fruits and grapefruit. As the taste moves forward the citrus gets stronger and is joined by a bit of an herbal and grassy hop to leave one with a citrus and slightly dank taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is moderate. For the style the feel is great and makes it an easy drinker.
Overall - A tasty brew overall with a nice easy drinking feel

Received from @r0rschach in a BIF box. Canned on 4/17/2019 and poured into a pint glass. It's a cloudy tangerine with brownish hues and a thick, creamy milk-white head and extensive creamy lacing. It has a fragrant, fruity nose featuring tangerine, pineapple, lemon, lime, tropical notes, and fragrant hops. The taste opens with more tart citrus, including grapefruit rind and lemon peel, than the smell indicates but at mid-sip the pineapple and tropical fruit appears and nicely balances the citrus. The bill of Citra, Simcoe, Chinook, Ekuanot, Azacca, and Galaxy hops delivers lots of flavor but with only moderate bitterness. This ale has a crisp, fairly lite mouth feel with pleasant carbonation, and it's very drinkable with a moderate 6.5% ABV. Overall, I enjoyed this ale. It's nicely crafted with a great smell and lots of flavor.

Appearance - Pours super opaque yellow with a big fluffy white head that settles to a thick rocky cap. Lots of stringy lacing.

Aroma - Little bit of weed, pineapple, citrus peel, oats. Nice pungent nose.

Taste - Nice and juicy flavors of pineapple and mango. Hints of orange peel and grapefruit come in on the finish. Nice balance of juicy and dank.

Feel - Medium bodied, slightly creamy nice dry finish.

Overall - Well done NEIPA, great look, solid dank/sweet nose and taste.

I wanted to like it more. I don't hate it and I appreciate the grapefruit aspect, but overall I'm not loving the beer. Too much floral on this one. It's as if I am eating a jasmine vine with a squirt of grapefruit. It looked great for a hazy IPA. Many will love it I'm sure, just not for me.

An exceptional reference for the “NE Hazy” style IPA. Cloudy juice appearance, a sweet fruit smell. Taste is typical for the style—not biter at all, smooth but thick, if that makes sense. Just a great balance of mouthfeel and taste, a great representation if the style and certainly one of the best available in Texas

Had on tap at the Lamar location.

Overall very solid. Thick white head with good retention. Smells of citrus with some hops mixed in. Cloudy appearance. Refreshing taste with a lot of citrus. Took a growler home and it didn't make it through the night. Would recommend to anyone.

Not being an especially big fan of IPAs, I'm a bit biased, but I was intrigued after reading much about this one. It's not bad. I could easily imagine IPA fans enjoying this one.

[Original rating 2016-05-17] Draft at Waller Creek, Austin TX. Hazy gold with little head. Aroma of citrus, juniper, grass. Taste of bitter citrusy hops, this is a hop monster.

Had this from draft to go with some duck sausage served with onion and dates. Excellent combo!

Very juicy beer. Strong grapefruit smell and taste, some orange and pineapple. Very pleasant acidic bite. Looks great too! Want to go to its source and try some of the variations on this theme!
