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!

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. Theres 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.

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.

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.

Pours a hazy straw color with tons of floaters. The thinnest of white heads with some stickiness. Strong hop aroma with hints of fruit. Tastes like grass, grapefruit and some pine. Mild bitterness but it does linger.

Poured from a can. Pours a clear golden with a moderate sized white head. Lingers well. Restrained citrus hops and moderate high malt. Taste is overtly bitter, with hop flavor in the rear guard. Moderately maltiness and high residual sugars.

As far as IPAs go, I do think there are better options. This brew is decent, I would go for others prior to selecting this. I actually like a lot of Jackie Os brews better.
