Draft. Rich amber beer with an off-white head. Some grapefruit and floral notes in the aroma with a bit of malt. Citrus, light pine, and light earth flavor with malt backing. Medium body. Decent bitterness. Citrus and malt lingers. Good, but doesn’t really stand out in any way. illidurit (2341) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 14, 2009
On tap at the Parish Publick House in Santa Cruz. Dark gold color with a nice lasting cap of white head. Lots of thick lacing. Aroma is pretty weak. Lots of pale malt, some citrus, and a dash of grassy and earthy hops. Flavor is toasty and malty with a grassy grapefruity hoppiness. Lightly bitter but too malty overall. scottw86 (1177) - Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2012
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. ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2012

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
This was my first beer from Black Diamond. I thought this was a pretty solid IPA, but it wasn’t 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.

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.

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 there’s 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 wouldn’t seek it out. luttonm (6282) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Draft in Seattle. Hazy yellow gold. Dry peanut, pine hops. Dry bitter, big IPA. Good west coast style, solid. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
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. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2013
12oz bottle, from Jungle Jim’s 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.
