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!

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

Aubrey (3491) - 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 (6300) - 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.

ADfan (659) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 24, 2013
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.

Has some nice fruity aromas and taste. Hops over power this one a bit in the finish, has an almost soapy fruit finish. Some hops are a hit or miss with me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (4750) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy butterscotch with a large off-white head that slowly dissipates with very nice lacing. Aroma is pine resin, citrus, light caramel. Flavor is about the same with a very light sweetness and a light to medium bitter hops presence with a bitter finish. Not a bad beer at all.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bomber. Pours a hazy straw with no head. Grapefruit aroma and flavor, pine and malt. Not bad but it’s put together a bit sloppy.

bhensonb (12587) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours light gold with a frothy near white head. Aromas of citrus and resin. Med body. Flavor is citrus/resin with a phenolic touch. There’s a mild caramel backbone. This is a strongly flavored beer!
