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!

brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 2, 2011
A: The pour is a hazed orange color with a white head. S: Starts off with citrus hops (orange in particular) and a decent fruitiness overall. There’s a fairly dank hop nose which gives off a little body odor type smell. Pine, grass, and just a touch of bready malts. T: Surprisingly bitter with some good grapefruit and orange peel flavor. Notes of tropical fruits are there in the background. Resinous pine provides most of the bitterness. M: Medium in body with moderate carbonation. O: There were some good notes to this beer, but overall, I wasn’t the hugest fan.

Dogbrick (14391) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a hazed golden-orange color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with a moderately hoppy flavor with piney and citrusy characteristics. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness left behind. Definitely reminiscent of other West Coast IPAs (really reminded me of Green Flash), and a pretty good beer overall.
