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.

EHopper (619) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

On cask @ Beachwood BBQ. Slightly hazed orange pour with some soapy white foam. A bit of caramel, lots of floral hops, and plenty of orange. Pretty heavy on the pine, a touch of tea, and some grapefruit peel. Good orange, grapefruit peel, and pine on the palate. A touch of malt sweetness and a nice bitterness on the finish.
