Notes: Our flagship West-Coast style IPA is brewed with a tremendous amount of hand-selected American hops, delivering extraordinary tropical and citrus notes alongside a firm but satiating bitterness.

12oz can. Stamped on can bottom is 'CANNED 09-27-22'.
Slightly cloudy, pale gold colored body. Two fingers of white head, which creates a pillow top. Leaves rings and walls of lacing.
Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Quite aromatic.
Taste is orange, grapefruit, pine, and a bit of dank. Good solid malt base. Hops prevail in the aftertaste. Much more bitter than juicy sweet.
Fuller mouth feel, with light syrup. Very slight tongue burn. Excellent carbonation.
West Coast style IPA from Ohio. Piney bitterness lasts for awhile.

L: Light orange. Nice head that lasted. Puffy white sticky lace.
S: Tropical Fruit. Like a Tahitian Treat only not sweet smelling.
F: Strong bitter wash. Strong fruit aftertaste
T: Yes, this has a heavy fruit profile with no particular flavor making itself known. It's got that bracing bitter and almost candy like remainder.
O: An enjoyable IPA, but not enough to make it stand out. Maybe better fresh from the tap or aged.

Mystic Mama is an outstanding West Coast IPA! Being brewed in Athens, OH, Jackie is one of my favorite breweries. Refreshing flavor of citrus with a good IBU rating of 80, and balanced with 7% ABV, the buzz and bitterness rating and flavor will please you more than any lager. Excellent brew for any occasion.

Look: It pours yellow and clear with a white head. Head retention is excellent.

Smell: It has grapefruit, spicy, and pine notes up front. It has a bit of resinous with orange.

Taste: It has citrus flavors with a bit of grapefruit and pine. There is a bit of grainy sweetness to it with some orange and low tangerine.

Feel: It has a medium body with bitterness, but there is nothing harsh and it is quite pleasant.

Overall, a well put together IPA.

From the bottom of the can: "CANNED L 08-13-20 10:56"

Appearance: The body is pale gold with a medium haze. It has a large, dense head that has an eggshell white color. The head has very good retention and it doesn't seem to go away at all. Very good lacing. The more I drank the beer the more I enjoyed its appearance.

Aroma: It has a nice citrus aroma which smells a bit like orange and grapefruit peels. The aroma is mellow but nice.

Taste: Up front there is a pleasant citrus grapefruit character mixed with a light touch of caramel. Towards the middle of the mouth there is even more grapefruit character along with a grain flavor. At times there is a light mix of hay and wildflower that comes through. Near the back of the palate there is some pine. The overall presence of flavor is medium.

Mouthfeel: It is lighter bodied with excellent carbonation and a nice medium bitterness.

Overall: It is a very good beer that has a pleasant flavor and a nice but mellow aroma. It looks fantastic in the glass. I would recommend picking it up if you're looking for an IPA to pair with some food. It would go well with a sandwich or some pizza. While it's not a beer I'd look forward to buying it is one I would buy with some food at a restaurant or pick up at a grocery store if it has a better freshness date than my regular IPA selections.

Aroma is yeast, grains/bread and pungent hops. The flavor is fruit/citrus , malts/grains, very slight earthiness and a mildly sweet/grapefruit hoppy finish.

This is one of the best beers in Ohio. In the IPA category, I put it just behind Fat Head's offerings. Strangely, I feel like this beer loses something when you pour it from the can to a glass. In a can, it is an incredibly hop-forward, bitter IPA--just the way I like 'em. In a glass, though, it seems to lose a bit of its bitterness. Perhaps it's the cloudy body and weak foam that makes it resemble a hazy instead of the dry-hopped West Coast style that it is, and this tricks my brain into suppressing the beer's hoppiness. Anyway, it's a safe bet for an IPA.

Hazy gold appearance with a large white head and good lacing. Initial aroma of pineapple evolved into a broader spectrum of citrusy syllables. Hop dominated flavors focused on a piney theme although there are hints of spice in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel leading to an average length finish.
