COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Sample at Mongoose vs Cobra. The beer pours a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering piney hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

No retention and very light lacing. Smells of citrus and sweet malt. Very faint. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus Frits and pine. Not that bitter of a aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Murphy's. Good piney aroma. Tan head with large bubbles. Golden color with a hint of copper. Great piney flavor with a hint of sweetness. Malt rounds the hops nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (4748) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Draft - Sweet pine and leafy. Clearish gold with a rich white head. Lots of pine, like sucking on a cone, light sweet malts and a dry finish. If you like fresh pine, this is it.

"Has the hop strength to convince you itís a double, just without the alcohol or residual sweetness. Really spot on for what they were going for...pine sap and citrus through and through. Hell, Iím probably low balling this at 4.2. Really nice!"
