Brewery literature says this is made with Simcoe, Centennial, and Galaxy hops. Color is a clear golden with decent foam and plenty of spritziness on the tongue. Thin body. Sharpish but not acidic.

Flavor is oddly grassy with some straw. Not dank or even herbal. Hops come through aided by the lack of any malt. Unusual lemony flavor. Clean and crisp like a Pale Ale dosed with lime peel.

"I've lost the nuance of details. It's awash with hops," said the drinking companion. It's just not very bitter at all. Dry and fruity with a tangy ending. Not much of a modern killer IPA, but the most drinkable of the several beers tasted at the Jagged Mountain tap room in downtown Denver.

funny brew here from the new jagged mountain. it looks like a hefe, and although it is not advertised as such, I imagine this has to be a classic white ipa. its pale yellow, thick and yeasty, more than hazy, and supporting an inch of white head. it smells like a heavy dose of citrus family hops, grapefruit and alpha acid are present, but its weird with the wheat malt. the hops taste great, but the malt is wrong. its way too thick and heavy, way too much yeast still in suspension, and a beer that is quite rough around the edges, despite an excellent choice of hops. almost like they rushed it, like it wasn't all the way ready. I don't know, its not bad, but its so thick and has a soapy type of feel to it. not sessionable at all, and if it didn't taste as good as it does, I would be a little more harsh on it.

I had a half pint of this yesterday on a break from a walk through RiNo and back to downtown. I have a hard time reconciling what I drank with some of the comments and ratings I am reading here, from people whose palate I respect. Maybe they dialed it in? Many of the poorer reviews or ratings are from quite awhile back.
