Pours a medium amber with a medium head that leaves really nice lacing as it dissipates. As for the aroma its a big aroma full of hops , piney, fruity , citrusy hops and a bit malty. The taste is very nice also , it follows the nose pretty closely a nice hop profile fruity , piney a bit citrusy and although the nose makes you think it might be sweeter but it's well balanced. It has a nice smooth mouthfeel and ends with the proper bitter. I had high hopes for this brew due to the nostalgia surrounding it and also because it was brewed close to home many moons ago. This IPA didn't disappoint and it might even rival some of my favorites.

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
