COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ascend to the Jagged Edge, audaciously hopped and framed with a big malt backbone. Not for the faint of heart. 75 IBU

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2011
650mL bottle poured a golden color with about 2 fingers of white head that had some nice retention and some fine lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and some grain. Taste is a nice balance of hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness. A slightly above average IPA that was a treat to sample.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2011
On tap: Pours a clear deep golden brass with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny grapefruity hop nose with some lightly sweet pale malts. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness with juicy hop flavor before a crisp bittersweet finish. A nicely balanced and enjoyable IPA.

Blairgus (2416) - California, USA - SEP 20, 2011
20 Sept 2011, bottle. orange/yellow, a little cloudy w/ a tiny bit of sediment, steady bubbles, thick rocky head. nose is initially pink grapefruit hops and then fades into an oily citrus rind. thin/med body and fizzy, almost foamy in the mouth. white grapefruit citrus hops but not too much bitter finish. enough malt profile to give it body and some balance but not enough to really talk about malt taste or be competition for dry grapefruit hops.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 20, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a one finger off white head that has a nice retention. The aroma has lots of citrus and a good dose of sweet malt. The taste is nicely balanced sweet malt and citrusy hops with a slight graininess as well. Mouthfeel is nice and full, very crisp, and a dry finish.

You can see right threw this golden beer. It has some hits of citrus and a strong hopi taste...

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a clear copper color with a large off white head of tightly packed bubbles. The nose has notes of orange, pineapple, and pine. The flavor is straight up bitterness. Not much on the malt side. There is a little sweetness when your tongue gets used to the bitterness, but not much. No subtlety here, you get smacked on the tongue with some citrus and tropical fruit plus a strong aspirin like bitterness. The lack of balance makes this brew less enjoyable than it could be. Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a very long, bitter finish. It’s not terrible, but vastly out classed by other IPAs.

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Apricot color with a white had. Aroma is pleasant citrus with a bit of pineapple. Taste is biscuity with lightly resinous hops and some tropical fruit. $3/12oz

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Not much of an aroma here. Not much hop flavour to it either. This drinks like an English golden ale. Quaffable but unimpressive and very misleading.

GMCC2181 (1495) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle picked up at SL... Nice little IPA... Pours an orange color, small head. Well balanced nose of some crystal malts and some grapefruit hops... Taste is well balanced. Nice hop presence, strong bitterness with a nice mango taste... medium body.. easy to drink. Nice IPA

944play (340) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Hazy deep gold with medium white head and some lace. Mango and woody stem nose. Strong earthy flavor dominates over a crunchy bitterness and simple, easygoing sweets. Mildly astringent. Alcohol is well-integrated enough to be felt more than tasted. EDIT: haze is apparently CHILL HAZE.
