Notes: For the first time ever we've brewed and bottled a full batch of our old friend Jed's out-of-this-world IPA recipe, the JED IPA!!! This forceful 6.6% alc./vol. IPA, brewed with Millenium, Falconer's Flight, and Galaxy hops, is pleasantly citrusy and resiny, is sharp and crisp, and is here just in time for the May the 4th weekend!

Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle

L- Pours a deep amber topped by a 1/2 finger white head. Good retention and light lacing.

S- Distinct aroma of mango and grapefruit. Not getting much in the way of malt on the nose. Incredibly fragrant and mouthwatering!

T- The taste is decidedly different than the aroma: caramel malt with a healthy dose of ringwood yeast flavour (a signature of picaroons). Mellow citrus rind bitterness on the finish.

F- Medium Body and low carbonation.

O- A pretty good beer BUT the aroma is so damn delicious that anything other than a duplication in the flavour is going to be a severe letdown. I look forward to Picaroons trying this one again (hopefully) next year, maybe they can nail the taste on the next go.
