In fact this well balanced, west coast IPA is dry hopped 3 separate times, each lot giving it more and more of the grapefruit citrus hop aroma and flavor it is known for. Overall it utilizes over 4 pounds of pacific northwest hops per barrel.

On tap. Excellent west coast IPA. Citrusy hops in the aroma and taste, very well done. The alcohol is pretty much invisible, could drink this all night!

12 oz bottle courtesy of Pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a clear orange body with lots of clinging carbonation originally sitting underneath a large foamy bright white head. Aroma started off with a large dose of citrus fruit and rind with some appricot and mango as well, wet grains lemon zest and lime towards the end. Fuller bodied with full carbonation and a dry bitter fiinsh. Flavor is missing the tropical fruits but there is plenty of grapefruit and rind, toast, bitter lemon zest and hop cones. This packs a serious hop punch and could easily be mistaken for a DIPA. Great beer.

Slightly hazy golden color with a thin head, bold taste right way with citrus notes and a very hoppy presence. A bite of bitterness with bright carbonation to finish. I would drink this one again.

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Pours amber with off-white head. Nose full of mild caramel and toast. Medium to heavy on the tongue with a perfectly balanced toffee, toasty malt, and ripe date flavors. Hops are resinous with subtle apple character. Impressive IPA.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2011
Amber coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a short white head. Fruity almost peachy hoppy aroma with some floral hints. Medium to full dry palate. Finish is bitter dry hinted. Very special, fruity ending with a sharper bitter light herby hint. Nice and special.

650 ml. bottle. Pours a lasting ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a clear light amber (SRM 7) body....nose is citrus, grapefruit peel, cereal, light toffee/caramel....taste is grapefruit to start, then toffee/caramel sweetness, with hints of floral honey, followed by a pine, citrus lingering bitterness....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, carbonation adds creamy tones. This is a well balanced, not overly bitter, nicely complex, "American/Left Coast" IPA. BJCP 7/3/15/4/8

Bomber. Pours clear copper with a fine off-white head. Floral and citrus on the nose. I was expecting more hop punch, but it came off clean and balanced. Medium hop finish. Good, but didn’t knock off the socks.

RSRIZZO (1900) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2011
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 45°. Color is a bright gold with very good carbonation and a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy with pine and citrus. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp fizzy mouth feel. Flavor starts with light malt and a touch of fruit then the hops jump out with big lemon and orange citrus and ends with a bold bitterness. In the after taste the bitterness lingers yet the fruit flavors give a mild sweetness at the same time. Overall its a very good IPA.

Chalsk (1097) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Nothing like a west coast IPA. Pours a golden orange color with a white foam head. Has an aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and pine. Sweet citrus caramel taste with a nice resiny hop hit. Sticky on the finish. Damn tasty.

This is a fantastic IPA. The flavor is amazing, tons of hops flavor and bitterness, just a touch of maltiness. Very good.
