poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a tulip glass, it is a hazy, cloudy almost opaque yellow-orange with a nice head.
Itís labeled a "West Coast IPA"... Not sure what make it west coast other than the fact that itís brewed in LA. At first I thought it had similarities to many other IPAís: nice citrus aroma, generous head, a touch of bitterness. What makes this IPA different is the amount of biscuit malt flavor it has. Yes, there are the expected grapefruit and pine hop notes, but this has way more malted barley presence than any other IPA I have had in recent memory.
