COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spiral Jetty India Pale Ale is the launching point in our series of hoppy IPA brews. Spiral Jetty IPA has an aggressive hop profile (five different hops used here with two in the dry hop) presenting citrus, floral, resinous or pine aromas and flavors typical of American hops and a nice pleasant, cleansing bitterness on the finish. The dominance of the hops helps to balance the complex malt flavors and the higher alcohol content. Spiral Jetty is our strongest Classic Series ale at 6.6% alcohol by volume, but certainly not our strongest beer.

MacBoost (1478) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle thanks to pussypete, I guess. Pours a slightly hazed orange (light pinkish when held up to the light) color with a white head that fades into a ring. Aromas of some watery indistinct melons or some shit. Pretty flaccid. Mouthfeel is also flaccid, like a penus that refuses to get erect no matter how hard the fluffer (@@ron) tries. Fuck you. This beer sucks. Pretty sure this is at least a year old.
