Brewed by:
Epic Brewing Company
Utah, United States

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.

A - mostly clear bubbly golden, two tall fingers of head retained amazingly well leaving some random lacing spots
S - grainy and slightly bready, very mild leafy greens, but the aromas are very subdued which often doesn't bode well....
T - solid peppery hops with a touch of leafiness, grainy malts, and a bit of a mint bubble gum thing on the finish
M - light body and lightly creamy, very mild bitterness
O - its not a bad brew at all, just a little on the mild side all around, would be a nice beginner IPA for the not so beer advocate, but still nice to try another from this brewer that is not available in my area

Picked up a 22oz bomber at a liquor store across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas for $4.99 and poured into a pint glass.

Pours a hazed pale apricot hue, thin white head dissipates quickly with small amounts of lacing. Smell is malty with very little hop, faint hint of sour off flavor in the mix as well - not good. Flavor is better than the nose with some fruity esters that are pleasant, the hop is barely noticeable though and the finish has a sour off flavor in the aftertaste. Even without the off flavor, this would be a weak IPA by any modern standards, drinking more like a pale with a thin body and fizzy mouthfeel. Regardless of how far off the mark they were with brewing an IPA, weird sediment at the bottom of my glass confirms that something is not good with this batch either way. Also - I found their Capt'n Pale Ale to be far more hoppy than their offering here in an IPA.
