COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on a "west coast style" IPA, Jagged Edge is big and hoppy, yet it’s also extremely well balanced, and surprisingly easy to reach for another. We "first wort hop" with Columbus, and use Simcoe for flavor additions. The finishing hop additions include Columbus, Centennial, and Simcoe. Columbus is pungent with sweet orange aromas and flavor. Centennial adds floral notes along with additional citrus. Simcoe add a nice pine like flavor and aroma. These hops were chosen for their flavors and their moderate cohumulone content, which means they are bitter but not overwhelmingly bitter in large quantities. Pale malts are complemented by caramalt and light munich malts, which both enhance the malty sweetness and color and work to balance the substantial hop bill.

A decent IPA I suppose. Bought a sixer of these in San Ramon, CA. Nose is grassy. Flavor is grapefruit juice, with its same kind of bitter flavor. Notes of apricot in there and it’s pretty dry.

Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2010
On tap at the BJ’s Brewery in Stockton. First ordered the Tempest IPA. Flat as a board. Sent it back and they recommended this. Have never heard of it. Again relatively flat. Must be the way they do things here in Stockton (wink). Darker than the normal IPA, very light in the hop aroma department. Same goes for the flavor. Remarkably unremarkable.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle: Very lively misty orange with a huge white fizzy head, seems infected from the pour. The nose is malty but a little tart with some funk and hops. The flavor is about the same, metallic and a little infected with the hops on top. Tart and zesty. Hmmm. The tail is a little more dry and bitter but this one is gone.

On tap. Golden body with a great white head, good rings. Aroma of citrus, herbal, cut grass. Taste is grassy, citrus, herbal, grainy. Lively bubbles and dry.

Clear orangish golden with a creamy white head. Grapefruit and mild lemon and pine aroma. Grassy citrus taste with a mild bitterness and a hay and caramel finish.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2010 This IPA is big and hoppy (7.3% ABV, 75 IBUs), but it seems a little clumsy. Almost too hoppy without enough complimentary flavors or a pleasing aftertaste.

Very bitter, dry. Brewed in California but more like an english style IPA. Not much sweetness here. Drinkable but not too much to be excited about.

sickassmick (226) - Concord, California, USA - AUG 30, 2010
been a while since i had an IPA. This is a good representation. big fruity, syrupy, flowery nose. I like the color of this one. almost yellow, almost brown, nice and clear. The front on this is very refreshingly carbonated, well balanced, really hoppy and really sweet, the finish is strong grapefruit, long lasting bitter. yum. I was afraid this would be a lot like the other old school micro’s with their IPA’s, but these guys seem to like what I like. one of the better one’s. and crap! it’s made where i grew up. go finger. BTW. The bottle says CONCORD, not walnut creek, don’t get it twisted.

Draft sample @ BBQ, Brews and Blues. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a large foamy off white head. The aroma was floral, light citrus and a strange grainy note. The flavor was on the mild side and was floral, earthy, hints of citrus with a pale malt base. Finish had a moderate amount of bitterness. Just OK.
