A straightforward malt body supports the distinctive bouquet of Columbus and Falconers Flight hops that impart citrus, grapefruit and pine notes characteristic of the West Coast style. F5 is a belligerent hop reckoning.

Poured from tallboy to glass. Slightly hazy orange hue with fluffy white head that lingered. Aroma is super fruity with essences of mango, pine, cantaloupe, papaya, grapefruit, ripe lime, mandarin orange. Mouthfeel is fantastic with x medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is nice malt sweetness throughout with a great hop bitterness in the hollowing and rounding out through the finish. Overall this is a great West Coast style IPA.

Keg @ Andolini’s. light amber with a small head. Big tropical fruit salad. Sticky mango and sea salt rubbed cantaloupe. Cotton candy rubbed in someone’s underarm. Very nicely balanced flavor. Just a bit of caramel malt backbone to allow the tropical citrus fruit flavors a platform to shine. A bit dank. Dry finish. Active carbonation. Ok, this is legit.

I live in Oklahoma, so I am going to say this is the water of God’s Country. This is just how I like my beer. Grapefruits and pine tress from the West Coast!!! Yummy!!! ^^-__-^^ Rockin with heavy citrus and earthy pine. Just how I love them....light pale malt base. It’s a really smooth malt base with low carbonation. Sweet Baby Jesus.

An awesome ipa from a local Oklahoma brewery. Really hoppy and bitter but easy to drink. Smells hoppy with a light citrus kick. Leaves a bitter finish. Had in Oklahoma City.

Draft - Skunky pine hops. Cloudy gold with a thin white head. Bitter grapefruit and a sweet caramel backbone. Lots of hops but a nice balance of sweetness to reduce the bitterness. Nice west coast style, a bit of booze in the bitter finish.

Can sample courtesy of dak. It pours with a deep gold body that support a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a pleasing mix of citrus, mango and floral hops where there is a subtle supportive sweetness well off in the background. The taste starts with hoppy goodness in the form of grapefruit hops mixed with a bit of mango tropical fruit and then some spicy onion dankness to floral hoppiness. Wow. These various hops work very well together and are bound together by a subtle sweet malt backbone. Delicious IPA.

Poured out of a tall can into a glass -- Suprisingly had zero lingering head, just a wisp of white bubbles, however they linger and stick to the glass decently. Flavor is a great balance between malt/hops, hop forward that gives way to a great sweet (hop driven) flavor with malt backmasking. Overall, I would like to drink this with dinner. Very nice overall. Nothing overly impressive, just solid.
