COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Can given to me from some fine folks passing through Bellís Eccentric Cafe from Montana/Oklahoma. Medium copper pour with small amount of effervescent bubbles rising to a quarter inch of white head. Scent is light, full of toffee, grain, florals. Soft carbonation, pillowy mouthfeel, tacky finish that leaves teeth dry. Taste is predominantly pine mixed well with floral and citrus zest, really soft and subtle, milky sour with toffee as well, grain is indistinct in flavor but very apparent in mouthfeel. Nice IPA with some regional uniqueness.

16 ounce can thanks to Angelo. Super balanced malt build. Nicely hopped with just the right citrus flavors coming through. Really well done.

nuplastikk (4434) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2014
16oz can. Slightly hazy orange body, steady off-white head. Oily, resinous hop aroma..some pink grapefruit..mostly pine. A pretty decent IPA. The hops arenít that exciting, tastes like a run of the mill IPA from ten years back. Not one Iíd go back for more of. Surprised this hit 100 IBUs. Nothing super off, but mediocre and not that desirable either.

Can: cloudy lemony orange color with a small off white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of freshly ironed polyester and grapefruit rind. Tangy and citrusy hop flavors with a crisp bitterness. Average body and pretty nice.

Salmoniform (672) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2014
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 @ Andoliniís. light amber with a small head. Big tropical fruit salad. Sticky mango and sea salt rubbed cantaloupe. Cotton candy rubbed in someoneís 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 Godís 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. Itís a really smooth malt base with low carbonation. Sweet Baby Jesus.
