COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on a "west coast style" IPA, Jagged Edge is big and hoppy, yet it’s also extremely well balanced, and surprisingly easy to reach for another. We "first wort hop" with Columbus, and use Simcoe for flavor additions. The finishing hop additions include Columbus, Centennial, and Simcoe. Columbus is pungent with sweet orange aromas and flavor. Centennial adds floral notes along with additional citrus. Simcoe add a nice pine like flavor and aroma. These hops were chosen for their flavors and their moderate cohumulone content, which means they are bitter but not overwhelmingly bitter in large quantities. Pale malts are complemented by caramalt and light munich malts, which both enhance the malty sweetness and color and work to balance the substantial hop bill.

Une ipa de 7,3 % abv et 75 ebu avec 3 houblons : columbus et simcoe au départ, puis les mêmes avec du centennial en dry hop. Malts pale, caramalt et munich. Mon exemplaire était depuis 9 mois dans sa bouteille, et attendait de se révéler au grand jour … Couleur abricoté roux tendre, à la clarté nette, pure (sans refermentation d’ailleurs). Bulles fines, nombreuses, vives, en colonnes droites partout. Mousse beige clair, crémeuse, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de sève de pin, abricot confit, curcuma, pointe de menthe. 1ère bouche souple et soyeuse, à l’entame résineuse vive, à l’amertume incisive mais très charmeuse. Arrière-bouche avec du caractère, de la vie et de l’amer. 2ème à l’amertume de houblons en fleurs et verts, pointe de fruits confits, pointe d’ortie. Arrière-bouche complexe, avec des tannins et de la vigne vierge. 3ème grande bouche variée sur les houblons. Arrière-bouche de plus en plus savante, avec de très grandes nuances. Longueur à la très grande amertume, avec du tabac blond, sève de pin, pointe de menthe et kiwi. Jambes fines, denses, adhérentes aux parois. Levure boisée, un peu épicée, belle ligne. Alcool très bien dosé pour une ipa, il tient la longueur fermement. Finale qui trouve encore des réserves pour nous étonner, dont une pointe de cannelle. CONCLUSION : une vraie ipa, bien sentie, qui rue dans les brancards, mais avec un savoir-faire indéniable et qui vous emporte dans son enthousiasme...

old time west coast IPA flavor. Reminds me of Grants. Hoppy with an edge, high abv, smoother and more enjoyable with every sip.

Nice, citrus-forward IPA. Citrus aroma and mid-taste flavor. Front end seems to be more malty; back end, bitter. Fairly well balanced. Solid, good! B ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Incredibly pungent, powerful scent of piney hops. I don’t get much citrus, mostly pine, grass, a little floral. Bitter taste, strong, slightly sweet malty aftertaste. A powerful IPA. I’m surprised the hopheads haven’t gotten around to this en masse yet.

Floral hops aroma over a citrus mandarin sweetness. A distinctly hoppy, malty body and a bitter finish. The malt adds a level of sweet to head of the bite and keeps it in check quite nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is pretty good. It reminds me of a Firestone Walker beer. Has a pleasing Belgium twist to it.

Golden color out of the bottle with a large, sticky, frothy off white head. Light fruity nose of mostly orange. Lots of orange and tangerine flavors with some red grapefruit juice. Long sweet tart finish with a lot of candied grapefruit rind. Sweet, hoppy IPA that hides the claimed 7.3% abv very well. Very nice IPA.

Tap - @ RHP. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with smallish white head. Aromas of pungent pine and resin, orange and citrus. Taste is all piney citrus. Lighter to medium bodied, long bitter finish. Very drinkable and tasty. Winner.
