Notes/Commercial Description:
Spiral Jetty India Pale Ale is the launching point in our series of hoppy IPA brews. Spiral Jetty IPA has an aggressive hop profile (five different hops used here with two in the dry hop) presenting citrus, floral, resinous or pine aromas and flavors typical of American hops and a nice pleasant, cleansing bitterness on the finish. The dominance of the hops helps to balance the complex malt flavors and the higher alcohol content.

Pours a cloudy pale orange. Decent head and nice spotty lacing. Aroma is very much citrus with orange being the dominant smell. Also, some light hints of piney hops. Taste is a mouthful of citrus, orange, mango, lemon and such. Hop bitterness sneaks through pretty good and brings a small helping of pine and resiny hops. Mouthfeel is cool, refreshing and allows the hops to come out a little more as it is being drunk. Crisp, nice carbonation and easily drinkable. Price is also quite good for this beer as I paid $4.49 for a bomber, wow!!

Spiral Jetty pours a hazy, cloudy (even slightly chunky) pale orange with a dense and foamy head that leaves lingering lacing all down the glass.
The aroma is nice, I get lots of citrus and a hint of pine and dank spice.
The taste is better than I was expecting. Lots of citrus and tropical fruit up front with a bit of lemon in the middle and some sweetness as well. It finishes with a refreshing and dry bite.
The mouthfeel is medium, with lots of bubbles and a bit of stickiness.
Overall, i think this is an underrated beer. Not a hop bomb by any means but very tasty and refreshing. I'd buy it again, especially at this price (4.99 for a bomber).

I'm liking the Spiral Jetty....this beer probably would have been better had I not tried the Holulent prior. Nevertheless....in Park City, Utah with my homie trying some local flare. The Spiral Jetty poured a hazy with froathy white head that is leaving some lace. The scent is fresh hops that carry slight pine, citrus and some floral tones. The taste is very very good balanced beer with bitterness throughout but enough malt to keep it from being too much. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall another excellent offering from Epic....nice job guys...and gals.

Poured an orangey gold with a thick creamy white head. The head lasts around the glass circumference and leaves some sticky lacing. The aroma is pretty bland, a nondescript whiff of hops and maybe a hint of sweetness. Unfortunately, that's more than the taste offers. I don't get any of the hops nor do I get any complex malt flavors. If it weren't for the actual alcohol feelings, I'd wonder if this was really a beer. I've usually liked-loved Epic's beers but this one completely misses. Unless you're trying to collect the set, I don't see a reason to try it.
