COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With 78 IBUs. Our version of a West Coast IPA- brewed in the San Diego style. This massively hoppy beer gets its flavor and attitude from no less than five hop varieties including Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Summit.

Hazy light amber pour from a bomber for $4. This really feels like the quintessential West Coast IPA. Could smell the hops from the moment it was cracked open. Resin, pine, citrus. Appears to be bottle conditioned - interesting! Perhaps the yeast are carrying some of the intense hop character? Fluffy white head with a ton of lacing. Very nice.

Strong out of the gate with a less than stellar finish. Hop forward but finishes with random tastes falling off from the hop start. That was redundant but each drink is too. Good not great. Bottle. SoCal. Costco. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

javiercrasher (217) - Granada, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2015
De color suavemente anaranjado. Soberbia capa de espuma blanca que no desaparece. Aroma a resina, pino y piŮa. Cuerpo medio. En boca entra con un punto dulce, pero pronto hace presencia el lķpulo. Herbal y resinosa. Alcohol bien integrado y final seco y amargo. Cervezůn!!

thehinge (282) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Very nice IPA. Lemony, bitter on the front end and just a bit of hops in the aftertaste. Among the best of the style that Iíve sampled.

suurjuust (1618) - ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2015
Clear golden, white head. Nose is grassy hops, peaches, pineapple, malts and caramel, mild sweet hints. Flavor is malts, caramel, pine, peaches, a firm bitterness in the finish. Lingering hoppy bitterness after the medium long finish. Probably would be better fresh, still itís pretty good. Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

martjoobolut (1351) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle (from Koht, Tallinn). Pours golden with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is grass, tropical fruits, mango, caramel, sweetness. Flavor is sweet and bitter, grass, tropical fruits, mango, citrus. Finish is fruity citrus bitter. Overall: good brew. I guess fresher bottle would be better (didnít find BB, but I assume itís at least 3 months old, havenít seen fresher American stuff here).

650ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Light unclear golden color with white head. Hoppy aroma, floral, piney, citrusy. Sweet and bitter taste, fruity and pine notes again. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

kespecial (113) - - JAN 30, 2015
On draft. Pours a light orange, typical American IPA. Aroma is mostly pine. Flavor is assertive and pleasingly bitter: grapefruit, lemon rind, a faint gesture of caramel malt. Itís a hop bomb for sure, dry and bitter with huge citrus and resin flavors. Very nice, only critique is itís a little too dry to session.

wvhoran (393) - Tasmania, - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle. Hazy to murky amber-orange with a creamy, lasting white head. The aroma is pine, orange, grapefruit, biscuity malt. Flavour is sweet citrus, pine, malt, crisp bitter finish. Dry. Great.

From a bottle. Pours opaque amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like grapefruit and orange hops with light spiciness, dry toasted malt, caramel, nutty. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like orange and grapefruit hops, toasted cereal malt and caramel.
