(This is the new recipe for West Coast IPA, now an Imperial IPA)

If you are drinking this one in Europe, chances are you should be rating under this entry:

As craft beer pioneers, we embarked on an expedition to brew the benchmark West Coast IPA. We ventured into the unknown and struck gold, discovering a tantalizing menagerie of hops. Simcoe for tropical and grapefruit zest, Columbus for hop pungency, Centennial for pine notes, Citra for citrus zest, and Cascade for floral aroma are layered throughout the brewing process. West Coast IPA exemplifies the Green Flash spirit of adventure and discovery.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Aroma is citrus, floral and vaguely boozy. Flavor is bigger includes citrus, pine, resin, tea and pear. Malt back is barely there but fits just fine. All in all I prefer this to the original single and find it worthy of its roots.

mambossa (281) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Softly hazed caramel amber pour. Placid pine and citrus, pineapple, wet flowers, peaches and apple. Flavor has a sturdy lightly toasted malt body with floral bite, ripe sweet grapefruit, papaya, pastel lemon skin, piney floral linger. It’s good. Not astonishing, but worth buying as your go-to.

pityu (618) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle - Slightly hazy golden colour, large and long lasting fluffy white head, fine lacing. Intense citrussy and resinous hops aromas with some lemon peel, tangerine and pine. Taste is first sweet malty with biscuit, honey and some caramel, then grapefruit, tangerine, and pine with decent bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, oily texture, decent hoppy finish with linering bitterness. Very enjoyable, highly recommended West Coast style IPA.

Kosmokrator (846) - ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Alla spina. Dissetante e "classica" ma freschissima e ricca di note agrumate e resinose; robusta nel corpo e nello spirito, di generosa persistenza. Dopo i 48°C della Death Valley è stata una manna...

Andrew196 (1399) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Pours a dark marmalade with a thin white head, tons of lace. Smells of sweet, citrusy breads, pine, notes of tropical fruit, even some banana in there. A very hearty west coast version of the style... Crisp on the tongue with a medley of pine and citrus fruit. Nice sweet, toasted grain shell. Well done.

Wojo21 (208) - Pelplin, POLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Aromat średnio intensywny, cytrusowy, świeży. Barwa złocista, delikatnie zamglone, piana średnio wysoka, zbita. W smaku wytrawne, cytrusy, żywica, goryczka średnia w stronę wysokiej, grejfrutowa. Ogólnie spodziewałem się więcej, a tak to poprawna, dobra nie urywająca niczego Ipa.

ordybill (1302) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear bright amber copper with a large white head. The aroma is a full on rush of hops, pine and citrus. The taste is full of hops and citrus. A world class beer.

Halvljus och lätt grumlig, humlad och rätt beska, ändå balanserad och inte så spritig ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Banzale (16) - FRANCE - JUL 5, 2016
Acheter en supermarché français ( Auchan Roncq ) bouteille de 33cl . Au premier abord couleur cuivré . Senteur florale + fruité. Un goût particulièrement prononcé avec des notes d’agrumes ( peu être orange sanguine. ..) une amertume présente. Un houblonnage qui ne laisse pas indifférent. Bonne découverte !

From draft flight at Biermarkt USA on July 2, 2016. Medium amber/gold color, nice citrus/hoppy nose, big resin taste with some hops and malt but resin dominates. Different but rather good.
