On tap at John Harvards, Cambridge MA, 28 September 2009. On the chalkboard as simply Pacific Coast Ale but I guess this is the same beer as the Pacific Coast IPA. Hazy gold. Pronounced tropical fruity hop character. Stronger on the palate than on the nose. Firm citric flavours and mouthfeel. Pleasant and nicely drinkable.

Cask at the Cambridge location - cloudy orange, tapped from a "gravity cask," not from a handpump - it has the expected, bright, citrusy, west coast hop explosion in the aroma I expected - quite full-bodied, with a slick mouthfeel (had this pegged as an imperial ipa at first) - loads of grassy, piney, earthy hops, with an undercurrent of sweet malts that combine with the citrus to create an orange jam kind of flavor to the beer - nicely bitter throughout, especially in the finish - a solid ipa.

OldGrowth (3238) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2005
Tap @ Framingham location. Ok nose, grapefruit, sourdough, grass. Clean pale orangy gold color, small to no head. Bitter flaovors, Grapefruit & lemon mainly. Little of a aluminium taste. . Medium body, lite creamy, slick mouthfeel, bitter finish. An easy drinking ipa, but I’ll always look for the stormcatcher from this location.

Couleur dorée pale, légèrement voilée. Faible mousse blanche tachetée et adhérant à la paroi du verre. Grains et houblon agrumes style citrons et pamplemousse sous une signature de levure rappelant la croûte de pain. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, carbonatation affaibli. En fut à la brasserie, le 17 Juin 2005.
