COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is that big sticky hop elixir that I have always wanted to brew. Columbus and Warrior hops lend an assertive bitterness. Amarillo, Simcoe, and Centennial hops give this beer tons of great flavors of grapefruit, tangerines, and pine needles. A big dry hop addition of Amarillo and Simcoe give Mystic Mama a nose to stand up to the flavor. Soon to be a year round addition.

A west coast styled IPA that uses 5 different hops (Centennial, Amarillo, Warrior, Simcoe, Columbus) giving it tons of flavor, aroma, and an assertive bitterness. 7% abv with the ability to get you hop trigger firing!

jkwood04 (5058) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 10, 2016
12oz can in a tulip. Pours transparent golden with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine and floral notes from the hops, pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A good west coast IPA, but the west coast style is so 2010.

Turboninja (346) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle@home, from WineSpot, Cleveland, USA. Medium, buttery aroma of hops and not so sweet fruits. Light copper color with minimal white head and slightly hazy liquid. Medium/strong very hoppy taste of mango and other fruits. The amount and different kind of hops make the taste somewhat twisted like sweetness and bitterness would transform into a buttery notes. Semi-balanced with medium taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall too many hops make the product taste too buttery.

Can from phaleslu. Butt chugged 1/2 in his honor. Pours a straw yellow with billowing white head. Smells like heaven. Hoppy, pungent, citrusy pine. Jesus juice? Lets taste it to find out. Not Jesus juice but good. Lacks some hop bite. Minimal malts though. Very solid. Would drink again

DavoleBomb (1744) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.75 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is good and nearly a finger of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Lot of hops in this. Piney, earthy, and grassy notes first. Grapefruit followed by some light orange citrusy notes. Toasty malts, on the drier side, with a few touches of caramel. 3.5 T: Taste follows the nose. Lots of hops, fairly dry, and pungent. Resiny hops with pine, earth, and grapefruit. Lightly citrusy. Toasty, caramel. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very drinkable. 3.5 D: Solid IPA. ★ 595 characters DavoleBomb, Mar 29, 2014

ajnepple (4376) - Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2015
On tap at Black Bottle Brewery. Clear light orange appearance with a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. Pretty nice hop nose, with notes of citrus zest, grass, floral notes, pine, light herbal notes and a touch of hop resin. Similar flavor, crisp, moderate hop bitterness with minimal to light malt sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation. Smooth and fresh, a nicely done IPA overall.
