COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the West Coast IPA is well-balanced and huge in hop flavor and aroma without overpowering bitterness. A blend of hop varietals yields tropical fruit aromatics that give way to flavors of grapefruit and pine. The balancing malt presence brings out a bready character and light caramel undertones that lay the foundation to showcase the hops. Welcome to the endless West-Coast Summer!

Best by date 1/31/15 Appearance was clear golden with lasting creamy white 2 finger lacing. Aromas are soft grapefruit, orange, lemon with slight crackery malt sweetness, no alcohol. Taste is citrus of orange, grapefruit and lemon upfront but restraint. Middle is soft sweet bread malts with onion, grapefruit and mild pine backend. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with medium body, then balanced soft smooth bitter finish. Overall a mild west coast ipa, not in your face bitterness.

Aurelius (4570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Candied, citrusy aroma. Clear and very pale. Lively, sweetish, probably not as bitter as you would expect. Medium body. Decent but routine. Thanks to Byron at Proof.

On draft. Faintly chalky aroma. Loose lacing. Early burst of sweet blood orange gives way to toast. Big burst, bitter fade. Summery.

Theydon_Bois (11500) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Keg at Ancapa Brewing Co, Ventura, 01/05/14. Hazed golden orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is floral hops, toasty malts, citric rinds, straw, hint of pear drop. Taste comprises light perfume, citric peel, floral hop, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. So so IPA, a little basic.
