Amber pour with a good sized cap. Muted hopping in the aroma, lighter pineapple and grass notes. Grassy up front, straw, lighter hopping, tropical fruit, light pine. stronger malt backbone. Medium body. When they say "West Coast" they mean the west coast of the Trent/Severn waterway.

jksipa (757) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a very clear medium amber with a big fluffy tan head that quickly recedes. Nose is grass and grain with a little floral hops. Sweet start with mild citrus bitterness. Light to medium mouth with average carbonation. Nothing to make this stand out.

(5%)one finger head with little bubbles and the head last and leaves lacing. Swerling the beer a little bring a bigger head tha stays for a moment then mostly gone. Dark orange amber look with carbination. Smell from the bottle almost smelt a tad like a smell from a macro lager. Glass really brings the hoppyness out. some water medium-heavy bodied with a friendly way of showing the I guess bitterness & I guess some fruity/grassy taste a bit but the hops r like mostly grainny or bitter in a friendly way not a punch to the face but strongly tasted. If you find this too hoppy then lots of hoppy beers r not for you if you like hops a lot this may be weak for ya. I find it fine for what it is but not taste I am hopeing to get in most beer’s I pick up. Nothing wrong with it cheer’s.

not even sure where the "west coast IPA" pigeon hole sits. If i had to i’d call it an american pale. Not excessively carbontaed which was a bonus, light fruitiness on the nose gentle hops and citrus flavour. Good to try as i’d heard it was one to sample but i moved on to other options after the first one.

Eructoblaster (3758) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Golden body with a fading white foamy head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with melon hints. Its bland, thin hoppy taste carries malty and fruity notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Boring.
