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!

I had to maneuver myself through the white reggae concert crowd at brew week to score a growler of this. I enjoyed some of it back at the hotel while watching some excellent tbn ministry coverage. The 7.1 percent is hidden very well. I got alot of floral hops at least more so than citrus. Very well balanced. It had a session amount of bitterness to the taste, not too much but not too little. I did get more citrus in the flavor though. Overall a solid beer.

Can. Grapefruit hop aroma with notes of tangerine and pine resiny hop. Pours clear golden colored with a large off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with grapefruit and tangerine hop flavor and acidity. Finishes dry and quite bitter with sticky pine resin flavors clinging to the palate through the end of the sip. Pretty good IPA, a little bitter at the end though.

Very slightly hazy bright gold with its own inner light, and a thin sticky white cap. Big leafy and earthy dank nose with a light bit of pine resin and bright pale malt. Big flavor thats dark pale malt and big leafy/pithy/resiny hop bitterness. Reminiscent of Deviant Dales with its resiny big leafy bitterness and slightly boozy pale malt body. Big stern bitter IPA

Can from Bayshore Beverage Sandusky. Mostly clear deep yellow with a good sized bubbly white head that persists. Tangerine apricot pine and grapefruit rule the nose with a sweet bready malt deep underneath. The flavor is more pine and grapefruit than anything else. Bitter resinous drips off your tongue long after each sip. Bold tasty bitter IPA.

Hazy, golden appearance with a large white head and good lacing. Initial aroma of pineapple evolved into a broader spectrum of citrusy syllables. Hop dominated flavors focused on a piney theme although there are hints of spice in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel leading to an average length finish. Thanks, Bert!
