COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast-Style India Pale Ale is extravagantly hopped, full flavored, medium bodied and copper colored. A menagerie of hops is combined throughout the brewing process to impart specific characteristics. Hops used include Simcoe for a unique fruitiness and grapefruit zest, Columbus for strong hop pungency, Centennial for pine and citrus notes, and Cascade for floral aroma.

A floral aroma with strong grapefruit overtones and a light sent of apricot among other hop aromas. It has a dark orange, gold color. It’s lively with a white head and some lacing. It has a strong taste of grapefruit, piney hops, floral notes, and a touch of apricot.

jinroh (266) - ESTONIA - APR 18, 2014
355 ml bottle from AEON Liquors @ Jiyugaoka. Pours nice and amber with a small head and great lacing ability. Aroma is strongly hoppy, some grassy/floral herbal hops covering a bit of bready maltiness. Citrus. Taste has many different variations at first - and is mainly formed by different hops. Resins, melon, pine needles - and ensuing bitterness at the end, quite sharp actually. This beer is citric IPA, loaded with hops and hop bitterness, I guess a great example of this West Coast style what it claims to be.

Reimer96 (1064) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Pours a hazy copperish orange with a nice moussy white head that leaves lots of lace and some particles in suspension. Aroma of pine, resin, grapefruit, sweet pale malts that are all in balance. Taste is a lot of citrus pine, resin, grapefruit, sweet pale malts with a almost dry finish. Medium high carbonation and overall just great balance of malts and hops as its never astringent nor too sweet and the abv is hidden well.

On tap somewhere in Akron, Ohio. Classic deep golden look. Aroma is hope hops hops. Taste is the same though not so fruity. Also finish has a bit of dead coyote in it for some unknown reason. Yuck.

ARH (153) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is mostly grapefruit, pine, and toasted grain with some caramel coming in late. A light floral touch lasts throughout the drink. An abundant white head tops a clear, rich amber orange beer. The head retains well, with a creamy puff persisting by the end and it leaves lots of sticky, puffy, "dirty" lacing along the glass. Surprisingly not as bitter as I would expect from an American IPA, but maybe that’s where the "west coast" part comes in, I’d say medium / medium-low bitterness with a medium sweetness (maybe the higher threshold of medium). The medium full body has an oily texture to it with a decent amount of soft carbonation. The finish is a dry pine and grapefruit zestiness with a dry floral aftertaste that lingers for a while and is rather mellow.

A good IPA, a bit darker than some and a bit sweeter taste but still a good combo ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MunBro (132) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Aroma of citrus, pine, and hops. Pours a murky golden color. This one has lots of sediment for some reason - it tastes fine so I don’t think I got a bad or expired bottle. Taste is wonderfully fresh. Citrus fruits, hops, and very little malt which is just how I like it.

Fruits, citrus, pine and caramel in the aroma. Amber with a white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice, fruity IPA.
