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!

brokensail (11077) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2011
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy golden amber with a fluffy white head. S; Smells nice and citrusy with lots of floral and spicy hops. A fair amount of bready malts along with some light pine and toffee sweetness. Not an overly impressive aroma, but decent. T: The nose starts off with light citrus hop notes and a moderate caramel and toffee sweetness. Floral hops and some spicy hop notes as well. There is only a little bit of bitterness on the finish. M: Both the body and carbonation are medium. O: This is a pretty good beer, but it’s not an amazing beer.

Amber pour at the brewery. Aroma of citrus hops and bready malts. Hops get lost a bit in the malt. This is just ok.
