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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Quite a hazy looking amber brown with some great head and some pretty good looking head with some decent lacing.
S - Smells pretty malty but not very hoppy. Has a decent sweet smelling hop profile so I hope for the best.
T - Taste like an English IPA rather malty smooth with a touch of herbal bitterness. It's actually pretty balanced.
M - Light to medium body. Easy to drink.

Overall much better than I expected not really worth picking up again but worth the 5 dollar price tag.
