COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on a "west coast style" IPA, Jagged Edge is big and hoppy, yet its 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.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2009
12 oz. bottle from six pack, purchased at San Roque Market in Santa Barbara. Pours dark amber with a slight haze and a thin off white head that quickly diminishes to a ring of bubbles. Aroma is toasty with toffee and citrus notes, a little floral but not a lot else going on. Flavor is a step up from aroma, nice toasty malty backbone with a brash and bitter hop profile, grapefruit and resins, a bit of caramel, spiciness and a lingering astringent and bitter finish. Medium body and modest carbonation on the tongue.

Oscbert (1116) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 21, 2009
~Aroma of citrus hops, a mixture of orange and grapefruit, clean malty sweetness, tart, similar to a red sweet tart. ~Giant, foamy, rocky white head. Pours 75% foam. Head takes awhile to die down and last at about a 1/2 inch. Cloudy orangish copper color. ~ Citrusy resinous hop flavor. Medium malt backbone that supports hop bitterness. ~Medium bodied with hop derived astringency, medium high carbonation, slight warming, sticky, yet dry. Has a slightly harsh bitter finish. ~The head is too huge! Makes it hard to try and drink it. Overall I did enjoy it.

DuffMan (7540) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle. Having recently had their amber ale, which was a bit of a fizzy mess, I was a little leery about this one. Thankfully, much better! Pours a nice deep orange amber, lacy white head. Low tropical fruit and caramel aroma. Flavours of caramel malt, with nice tropical fruit and mild pine hop character. Moderately bitter. A decent IPA, but pretty low intensity.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - OCT 24, 2010
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 its pretty dry.

12oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear deep gold with a frothy white head, decent lacing. Nose held some citrus and grassy hops, light cereal grain as well. Light biscuity malts and light hop bitterness in the finish, balanced IPA.

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.

ROGUE (2145) - 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.
