My favorite IPA, when it's reasonably priced I have no problem putting down ten of them. It's kinda got that grapefruit taste to it that so many people enjoy in #9 with a nice full IPA attached to it. I recommend this for anyone looking for a good session beer.

Drank from a 12 fl oz (355ml) can acquired as an extra in a trade with mps
Served in a pint glass

The slightly hazed, medium amber liquid was topped by a one-plus finger tall, frothy, bubbly, bright white crown. The head slowly dropped to a clingy, lasting film. Spotty streaks of lacing stuck along the glass. As the beer warmed, the chill haze eased up to reveal a nearly clear body.

Citrusy hop notes came through strong in the aroma. Lots of candied orange and grapefruit peel. Subtle tropical fruit notes were detectible. Mango was most apparent. There was a slight grassy hop quality as well.

The flavor profile was also quite citrusy, but the citrus notes here were much more pithy and bitter. Some caramel malt sweetness appeared on the front end before the hops really took over. Orange and grapefruit rind dominated. Super bitter. Oily, resiny hops came through strong as well. The beer finished super piney and bitter. The dry, bitter hop notes lingered on my palate long after every sip.

The mouthfeel was fairly ordinary. Medium bodied for the style with a fine, mellow carbonation.

Mystic Mama is a flavorful IPA that contains an immense amount of bitter, citrusy and resinous hop notes. While this may not be my preference for the style, I nevertheless can appreciate it.

Pours a chill-hazed golden copper with a fleeting ivory head that leaves only a ring of foam.

Tangerine, grapefruit, resin, pine, and light caramel malt form the aroma. Dank cannabis surfaces late. Tropical notes of mango add complexity.

Flavor is dominated more by resin than anything. Notes of the wonderful fruity aroma underlie a slightly toasted, bready malt backbone. Tangerine, grapefruit, and peach emerge. The finish is a touch tart, but resiny bittering hops reign it in.

Body is moderate, with almost spritzy carbonation, and light alcohol warmth.

Like the hop ryot, wish the flavoring matched the aroma, and a little more malt would help. A little more hop fruitiness in the flavoring would really improve this beer. That said, it's still a great brew. not overly bitter, which suits my palate. The ryot was more bitter and had less flavoring hops some through.
