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

Pours a hazy medium to dark copper with a one inch foamy cream head that lingers, eventually leaving sheets of lacing as it dissipates.

Wet grass, resin, dank cannabis, and lime form the initial aroma, with a fairly rich caramel malt surfacing in the background. Pine, light floral notes, and grapefruit emerge.

Flavor is decidedly sweet and malty initially, very bready, with caramel malt dominating throughout. Flavoring hops of grapefruit, lime, and resin that are evident early fade to slightly bitter hops at the finish. A little cardboard oxidation emerges in the aftertaste.

Body is a touch watery, with moderate carbonation, slight astringency, and a touch of alcohol warmth.

While the flavoring hops aren't a standout, and bittering hops are not as prevalent as some, I really enjoyed this brew. Malt sweetness might be too much for some, but it suits my palate.

3.58/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A - dark range in color with a 2 inch head. Very bubbly as well

S - Grapefruit and pine hops with a hefty malt smell as well

T - Very piney, grapefruit as well. The booze hides pretty well for a 7.3% brew. A good amount of malt as well but also a metallic aftertaste

M - A little thin for this kind of beer, Pretty good carb.

Overall - A decent beer. Nothing spectacular

Jagged Edge IPA pours out a slightly hazy orange color with two fingers of head. The aroma is very nice, citrus hops, caramel malt, and a nice pine edge. The taste is a bit less satisfying, as the caramel malts run the show, the hops just provide a bit of supporting pine bitterness around the edges. The mouthfeel seems a bit too thin for the malts power, and the drinkability is solid. A good malt forward IPA.
