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.

Elwood (3336) - 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.

Alphadelic (1858) - 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.

944play (366) - 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.

mansquito (3908) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Whole Foods Market, DC 6-pack ($12): Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is of piny hops, some herbal hops, and then a couple of other hops. I felt that this beer was very unbalanced towards the hops. basically, there are a few hop profiles in here (none of which are really my favorites) and then little else. Pretty bitter, but not brutally so, just extremely piny. An ok IPA with nothing bad going on, but then again not outstanding.

jgb9348 (4961) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2011
Relatively light golden coloured body with a few bubbles rising from the bottom with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh and rather potent hop flowers with some good light sweetness, a bit of drying oak or cotton and some minor malt flavours - all of that coupled with the very strong and noted hop notes of pine and flowers. Aftertaste nice as well with more drying and hop notes than anything else, leaving the palate relatively dry and refreshed after this one. I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased from Bridge’s in Danville, California on 19-March-2011.
