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!

Pours a deep golden color. Aroma is very citrusy and piney. Nice hoppy after taste of citrus and floral. Well done!

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.

12 oz can poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Hazy golden orange with 2.5 fingers of off-white head. Light lacing. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, caramel. Tastes of tropical fruit, citrus, floral hops, light pine, a little bit of caramel. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Delicious.

12 oz can poured into a pint. Appearance is hazy, light orange color with light, off-white head. Aroma is heavy in the hops with notes of grapefruit and pine. Taste is similar with the citrus and pine dominating although the sweet malty base comes thru as well. Hope bitterness is assertive but not overpowering. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture, and a dry finish. Another great offering from Jackie Os and one of the best IPAs out there.

On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy orange pour with a medium off-white head. Huge orange aroma (thanks Amarillo and Centennial!) with notes of sweet malt and grapefruit. Orange dominates the flavor as well, but there are also some grapefruit and pine characteristics balanced by sweet malt before a bitter finish. My kind of IPA.

Dark orange color with slim white head and nice lacing. Aroma is crazy huge! Tons of citrus, pine, and tangerine. Flavor is very bitter, but balanced with sweet citrusy hops. Some bitter bombs are all bite and no flavor, but this tastes delicious.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, no canning date. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange zest/rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest/rind, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, mango, floral, grass, pine, caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of hop flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity and balance of crisp hop flavors and moderate malt presence; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Draft. Grass, wood and pine in the nose. Nice floral pine resin flavor. Bitter pine aftertaste lingers.
