COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West Coast original, this IPA has bold levels of hop aroma, bitterness, and flavor. Dry hopped in two stages to give it a piney, citrusy and soft fruit flavor to satisfy your hop cravings. Note: DO NOT confuse with the single hop versions.

330ml bottle. Pours a clear medium amber, with an off-white head. Hoppy, resiny aroma, caramel, spruce, apricot, toffee, grass. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy, resiny, quite robust taste, caramel, apricot, grass, grapefruit peel. Not bad at all, hops show slight signs of oxidation, but the bottle might be a bit old. (2014-12-19)

Hazy darkish amber beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, nice fine carbonation. Airy malts bring light creamy sweetness and a modest caramel streak. Mildly bitter pine and marmalade hops. Trace of grassy bitterness. Smooth creamy finish. Floral bitter linger. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.
