COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on a "west coast style" IPA, Jagged Edge is big and hoppy, yet its 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.

Poured a slightly dark hazy orange color with a medium-sized off-white head. Looks like a wheat beer. Aroma is very hoppy with resin and some grapefruit. Also some caramel and oranges. Taste has lots of citrus and hops. The flavor transitions into a fruity and sweet taste. Some grain flavors as well. A bitter finish, but the aftertaste is long and sweet with orange notes. Overall quite nice.

Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 3/19/12

Aroma: The nose has some orange/tangerine, a little grapefruit, and some malty notes too
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a fizzy white head and fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet up-front, mostly citrus, balanced by a later hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a an average-plus carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This was my first beer from Black Diamond. I thought this was a pretty solid IPA, but it wasnt a standout in the style.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Decent hops aroma and flavor. High amount of bitterness and added malt. This is a big beer and comes off mild. Very interesting brew.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 26, 2012
Dark amber/orange pour with a decent white head and lace. Strong aromas of citrus, hops, caramel, vanilla, oak and pine. Wow hoppy bitterness and alcohol warmth dominate the early flavour profile. The sweet components are there but beaten down by the bitterness. JE is meaty with medium carbonation and a solid IPA. Jagged Edge is a solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A new arrival to NH, the notches on the side indicate July 2012, is that a bottled on or exp date? Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge white head that shows great retention and moderate lacing. The aroma is mostly garlic and green onions. Maybe theres a hint of bready malt, but its really hard to find. The flavor follows the aroma really well. I get lots of vegetative onion and garlic hop flavor with just a hint of sweet bready malt that is struggling to find a voice. The finish holds a bit of licorice and more of the garlic long after every sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a light syrup resinous mouthfeel. Intense vegetative hop aroma and flavor, but this seems to lack any complexity. I could drink this, but wouldnt seek it out.

12 oz. bottle. Pours amber color with a white head. Aromas of flowers, pine and resin. Flavors of tropical fruit, pine and hops. Not overly hoppy and slightly acidic on the finish.

12oz bottle, from Jungle Jims in Eastgate. Best by notch is October 2012... Purchased this 5 days ago... Hazy darker orange color. Thin, kind of airy beige head. Decent retention. Leaves pretty decent, thicker lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly dry in the texture. Nose is not that of a fresh IPA, it definitely smells a little malt forward, but the hop is still there in the flavor, doing alright. Some citrusy hops, lemon zest, along with big cakey biscuity malt. Not too much caramel. Moderate sweet taste though, more than I want from an IPA, with light to moderate bitter. A lot better than I expected, over all. Probably pretty tasty fresh.

Orange pour, white head. Straigh forward IPA here. Some citrus and grassy hops with a hint more malt than most west coast examples. Standard stuff.
