Jacked for Jackeroo
Societe Brewing has a new IPA brewed with Southern Hemisphere hops, including New Zealand's Nelson and Australia's Summer. Jackeroo is a terrific IPA (6.85 abv). It is crisp and full of citrus bitterness, with a nice resin on the mouthful. It is another winner from Societe. Societe's Pupil IPA also uses Nelson hops, but Jackeroo is no clone and stands out by itself. I do not know how much Jackeroo was brewed, how long it will last, whether Societe plans to make Jackeroo a regular (seasonal) beer, or if it is a one time occurrence. Those are questions for another day. Do yourself a favor today and get to Societe to try this gem while it is still available.
