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 fairly classic IPA. In a glass, has a thin white head with an orange-amber hue. Has a nice citrus based profile with the typical pine and lighter floral notes from a western IPA. The bitterness is apparent, but in no way over the top while the body is medium with a moderate amount of carbonation. Finishes with a consistent amount of bitterness, lasting aromas, and not particularly dry.

12 oz. bottle. Pour is a hazy golden copper with an off white head. Great nose of pine, grapefruit and resiny hops. Taste is very balanced, sweet malt with spicy, piney and bitter hops with floral hop notes throughout. Very smooth bitterness and finishes fairly clean. Really good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a bright hazy amber with a minimal layer of off white head. Aroma of hops and hints of grapefruit. Taste of upfront bitter that lingers.

borre_m (48) - NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
The beer pours copper with a off white head. The aroma is balanced with the west coast hop aroma that is expected citrus, pine and grapefruits. This is balanced by some malty sweetness. Tasting this has the hoppy bitterness you would expect, but its not overpowering. Overall its a nice IPA.

From bottle, pours cloudy orange, short white head lasts a good while. Aroma was muted but citrus. Nice malt caramel balanced flavor. A little pricey in our neck of the woods.

Juha (28) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Almost brilliant coppery amber colour. Massive cauliflower bubbly head. Aroma is balanced and fresh pine resin, not too overpowering. Taste is deep bitter and malty resin, upfront, none of that poncy grapefruitiness and citrus. Pine and resin. But in a balanced way, not in-your-face.

Backlog. Similar to it’s name, this is just one of the many other good west-coast ipas i’ve come across, not enough to make a lasting impression though.

Ambrée. Beau gros collet légèrement teinté. Un nez qui fait rêver. Très fruité. Agrume pamplemousse. Des houblon résineux. Un léger caramel en arrière plan. Je salive. En bouche on a une amertume franche et puissante qui persiste longtemps en bouche. Un filet de caramel est en équilibre avec les houblon qui offre des arômes de fruit tropicaux, d'agrume et de résine intense. Une finale sèche exige une autre gorgé, quoi?? Déjà fini? Ouvrons en une autre!
