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.

Wayfarer58 (4) - Koosbusch, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2012 does not count
Pours well with a deep, slightly reddish straw color. Good aroma hop with floral, citrus, and some spicy notes. A fairly nice balance of malt and hop, with a fair mouthfeel. This beer has more aroma than flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Clear gold, frothy white head. Aroma of grassy and floral hops along with citrus and biscuity malt. Taste is mainly grassy, slightly metallic finish, citrus. Medium bitter finish.

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 26, 2012
Dark amber/orange pour with a decent white head and lace. Strong aromas of citrus, hops, caramel, vanilla, oak and pine. Wow hoppy bitterness and alcohol warmth dominate the early flavour profile. The sweet components are there but beaten down by the bitterness. JE is meaty with medium carbonation and a solid IPA. Jagged Edge is a solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (6260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Sampled on tap at Green Dragon, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of floral and piney hops, some soapy notes. Flavour of citrusy hops, with some orange / lemon zest, floral notes and buttery malt. Very solid IPA, if not generic.

BrewDad (4890) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2012
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Decent hops aroma and flavor. High amount of bitterness and added malt. This is a big beer and comes off mild. Very interesting brew.

after4ever (6108) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft at uber. Pours a hazy medium amber with a dense and.creamy tan head. Big pine and orange nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel mid palate with lots of pine and orange. Resiny finish with a little bit of shampoo and pencil shavings, but not so acetic as to spoil the effect.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Clear with a gold hue. Foamy head with multi-sized bubbles. Fresh, hoppy nose. First sip unleashes assertive hops that are nice up front, but become a little rough around the edges in the finish and aftertaste. Very floral, perfume-like and grassy. Subtly sweet caramel in the malts barely keeps up. Sharp and harsh finish coats the mouth with an astringent bitterness that lingers too long. Not entirely bad, but it definitely has a jagged edge.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 3/19/12

Aroma: The nose has some orange/tangerine, a little grapefruit, and some malty notes too
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a fizzy white head and fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet up-front, mostly citrus, balanced by a later hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a an average-plus carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This was my first beer from Black Diamond. I thought this was a pretty solid IPA, but it wasn’t a standout in the style.

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Bronzed hue with a solid, hop-pocked head. Floral, resiny nose that is redolent of fresh hop leafs and with a fluorish of summer honeysuckle. The body is considerably more dank and tannic than the aroma indicates. A touch of skunk cabbage and heavy co-humulons along with a tannic floral hop leaf flavor, ending with both acerbic, yet somehow alkaline twang that is bitter-sour and off-key.
