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.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2014
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.

Ferris (7014) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
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.
