Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Year-round

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.

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.

Pours a perfectly color for an american IPA. Nice amount of frothy head out of a 22 ounce bottle.

Smell is also nice. Citrus, grassy notes and a little cherry as well. Was excited for the first taste.

But wasn't excited after it. Too much malt, not nearly enough hops for an IPA. Getting some wood, bark notes with a little orange on the finish.

If you're not a hop lover, this might be an IPA you'll enjoy. Otherwise, I'd avoid.
