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!

bottle with some bro dads at Frank dads. Poured orange clear. Small white head. Notes are grain, blood orange, pine, and sweet malt. Body was light to medium. Disappointing.

Orange hued body, medium white head, minimal laving. Pine, tropical fruits, sweet grainy malts. A bit sweet and muddled. Moderate bodied with gentle carb.

(can) clear orange amber colour with a small white head; aromas of citrus, honey; dry and simple flavour with a long medium bitter finish, disappointing after the aroma

can from budznsudz. T. Hanks! strong grapefruit in the nose. some tropical notes as well. light woody character. Can is black and purple. initial taste is very malty and sweet. not much bitterness at all, but then the alcohol hits you. the hop flavor is there but rather masked by the malt sweetness. slightly tropical with some notes grass. hop flavor is a slight let down compared to the nose. not bad, but definitely not my favorite. way too sweet.

Pours light gold with an ample white head. Smells amazing, lots of tropical fruit, hops aren’t over bearing. This is super smooth and balanced. Love this beer!

Tasty pear possibly and hops. Great fruit balance as you let this one sneak toward room temperature. Good looking brew to with a wonderful golden copper tone, wonderful head, and great lacing. Great IPA.

DuffMan (6146) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
Can from b3shine--thanks! Hazy deep orange pour with a golden head that laces generously. Sweet citrus aroma, tangerine. Candy-sweet malts, more like Christmas barley candy than caramel, with a walloping dose of juicy citrus hop character, some light pine too. Balanced and very bitter. Delicious.

Golden color with foamy white head. Great fresh hop nose with lots of pine and citrus. Flavors of resin, candied grapefruit rind, tangerine, apricot and a piney finish. Long chewy bitter finish. Really juicy ipa.

Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. the aroma has light orange and apricot...hints of pineapple and tea...just a touch of buttery/caraemly notes. flavor follows suit but is slightly more earthy and buttery. mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bitter and resinous.

12 oz. can, thanks to treebute. Pours a slightly hazy copper, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is strong pine hops, bitter orange, resin, and light caramel and honey. Very bitter, with only a little sweetness and a funky aftertaste. Medium body, sticky, and thick. Overall, this is a wonderfully aromatic IPA, but the flavor is slightly off-putting, and the aftertaste is unpleasant.
