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!

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 Pours a light gold color with a decent head in a taster glass. Aroma is grapefruit and Orange with a bready sweet Barely corn malty note with a citrucy tropical hop presence. Taste is more citrucy hop foreword with the sweet Barely corn malt backbone. Very very nice Ipa!!

22oz bomber thanks to stevepsycho. Pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of citrus (mainly grapefruit and orange), piney hops, with some sweet caramel malt. Taste starts off with a mix of grapefruit, orange, and other citrus hops, some sweet caramel malts, and finishes with some strong pine bitterness.

From a 22 oz bottle shared on father’s day. Thanks Suzy! Pours a hazy pale gold with a massively thick head. Peachy aroma. Flavors of grapefruit and lemon zest, bitter lingering finish but not over the top. Nice.

Very good IPA, orange pour, frothy white head. Citrusy, bitter hops, a little tropical, a little fruity, and some balancing malt.

Aubrey (3452) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle purchased in San Diego. Effervescent. Light malt flavors of crackers and faint nuts. Spicy with nips of white pepper and dried flowers. Pinch of citrus as well, though I wouldn’t call it fruity. Hops lack vibrancy and brightness, aromatically speaking. Bitterness is balanced, but I yearned for more. Pleasant IPA, but it seems to lack charisma. It’s an IPA from the West Coast, but it lacks the boldness of a West Coast IPA.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, a bit of haze, moderate to large frothy white head, so-so lacing.   Citrus peel and rind based hoppy aroma.   Very pithy on the tongue, bright too.   Faint sweetness, powdery.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Moderate bitter finish, pithy, citrus peel.   Could use a bit more malt body, and a touch more sweetness for me to say its balanced.   Tiz okay otherwise, but not one I would visit again.

Bottle shared by beerboxer. Pours clear golden with a decent off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a smooth caramel malt flavor with a carbonated bitter finish.

Poured on tap at The Beer Belly it pours a deep copper color with a nice head. It has some grapefruit and pine on the nose. Also some floral notes. Taste has grapefruit up front with more citrus. After that there is some bitterness and bready malts. Good finish.

Bottle. Cloudy orange color with a nice, frothy head. Strong grapefruit presence in the aroma with some hops in the background. Citrusy. Strong citrus flavor with some sweet hoppyness. Chewy with a dry finish. Solid IPA.
