Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, vaahdon ollessa noin kahden sormen paksuinen. Tuoksussa tullaan hieman makea maltaisuus edellä, joka on keksistä ja karamellista. Humalointi on pääasiassa havuista ja pihkaista, mutta hieman makeampaa sitrustakin on siinä mukana. Maku on alkuun keksisen maltainen ennen kuin puumainen humalointi ottaa kokonaisuuden hallintaansa. Havuisiakin piirteitä on joukossa, sekä makeampaa, jopa voimaista olemusta. Suutntuma on katkerahko, melko täyteläinen ja kuiva. Jännän makean tuoksuinen, mutta maku on tutumman kuiva. Hiven on kyllä brittivaikutteitakin tässä havuisessa west coast IPAssa.

kraddel (4949) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2015
bottle big thnx to Martin ! Pours clear blonde, good, mildly stable white head. Smell is full-on fruity. bit bitter, some corny base as well. Taste is indeed very much westcoast IPA. The tropical fruityness is there, just how it is suposed to be. The yeastyness is a bit different here, giving it a lighter MF, more of an easy-drinker like the UK seems to specialize in all so often. The bitterness is very mild here, and there aint really malts left in the taste. Bit of pine in the aftertase. Nice beer, succeeded in its meanings

zacgillbanks (3568) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Bear State West Coast IPA bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Pale golden coloured with a gentle haze and a thin white head of foam. Pineapple and bitter orange flavours dominate followed by pine, wood and oak on the bitter, smoked finish. Excellent!
