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.

On tap in a pint glass. Nice 1" head that is frothy and white. Good head retention (over 30 seconds) and slight lacing on the glass. Nice hoppy aroma of citrus fruit. Slight chill haze. Dark golden color.

The taste is hoppy, but not over the top. Nice citrus and pine flavor. Maybe some tangerine. Just a tiny bit of malt. The finish is fairly dry without a lingering bitterness. Smooth carbonation. Overall a good beer and IPA. Well balanced and not in your face hoppy or in your face malty. Very sessionable. I recommend trying it fresh on tap.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and earthy citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a citrus forward hop presence that comes through better in the taste.

Clear orange colored beer with a small white colored head. This fits the description of "IPA Orange."

Smells hoppy but not excessively so. Strong tea and citrus but not terribly aromatic.

Starts out dry with a toasted grain flavor. Mild malt and woodiness with a mild hop bite. Overall tasty but more pale ale than IPA.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty beer but certainly not a hop bomb West coast IPA. Buy this expecting a pale ale flavor and you will be happy with it.
