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!

Beer poured from a can. The parents is hazy copper, with some particulates. Head is off-white and pretty large.nose is very hoppy, with citrus notes dominating. Tangerine is very present. Taste is very hoppy, and a bit bratty. Hops our sitter is just like the nose.body is medium gray with white carbonation. Overall, a very nice beer. One of the better canned IPAs that I've had.

I have had this many times, but havenít rated it yet. 12 oz can at home. Pours a clear dark golden/light amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have big grapefruit citrus, some grapefruit peel, resin, with a splash of dank hops, toasted bread, dry, moderate to moderate plus bitterness, I love that this is in cans and has regular local distribution.

Very well balanced ipa; hoppy but not overly so. Nice orange nose that's very pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice, hazy, medium, copper color with fluffy, thick, off white head. Aroma is grapefruit, dank, juicy hops. Flavor is soapy, sticky, grapefruit, lovely bitterness. Great IPA. Must try for hopheads. My go to beers for the past 2 years. I love Ohio beer!

Pours a golden color with a nice white head....the head dissipated quickly, but left a nice layer which gave some nice lacing throughout. Nice piney nose on this one with some buttery notes. Good piney taste at the front which then fades to some grassy aftertaste....medium carbonation. Good overall brew.

12 oz can received in trade. Thank you Tracy! Bottom of the can reads: "11/24/14". This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a super nice looking glazed over bronzed yellow to light orange color to it. A nice one finger white foamy head appeared and dissipated within about a good thirty seconds. The smell, wow, had a big punch of citrus to light spice to a light pininess. The taste was there and packed a super nice punch of citrus flavoring coating my tastebuds. Thereís a nice spritzy to light citrus/pine aftertaste leading to a crisp and somewhat dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation is good for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a good AIPA that I would have again.

Pours golden with a thin head. Aromas of sticky pine, fresh citrus and wheat. Taste is tangy orange and bitter grapefruit. Medium bitterness for a strong hoppy front. Underneath is a toasty grain malt. Refreshingly on the light side for the package. This little gem took me by surprise. Very nice, will be adding it to the regular lineup.

12 ounce can from Jungle Jims. Nice hoppy, floral aroma. Grapefruit and tangerine with a bit of sticky malt, but not too malty. Well done and tasty.
