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!

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The íSham, Surrey, 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.

On tap at Tonyís Darts Away in Burbank. Not much on the nose but almost tastes a little Belgo. It ask works wonderfully. Looks nice and bright and murky. Tastes like candy with a nice hop blast at the end.

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.
