East coast vs west coast...a battle that has been waged for years in many forms. Now there arises a brew that strives to unite the two sides. This IPA bursts with an inviting hop aroma in conjunction with a carefully selected monastic yeast strain. It delivers unexpected, yet delectable flavor. Case closed?

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/14/13

Aroma: The nose has lots of citrus rind, some clove, pepper, floral notes, and a bit if grass
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a small white head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The taste has lots citrus rind hop bitterness, some spice, and a light malty sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it feels fairly crisp, has a pretty fizzy carbonation, and a fairly dry finish
Overall Impression: This isn’t a top notch IPA, but it is plenty drinkable. I like this beer well enough, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the other Three Heads IPA (The Kind), Like I said, this beer is plenty fine, but if you are only going to get one Three Heads IPA, and for some reason you are reading my review for a recommendation, I’d recommend the other one.

Bombers from Capone’s and Wegman’s. Pours clear dark straw with 1-finger splotchy white head that laces fairly well. Nose is funky yeasty rock sugary malt, mango, citrus, hops. Tastes funky, yeasty, with mid-palate dry florals, hopcitrus, Gets a mild semi-metallic taste as it warms. Decent, but not as good as some of the prior efforts from these guys.

Draft at Pony Bar. Pour a lightly cloudy gold with thin. Aroma is citrus hops and Belgian yeast. Hoppy flavor with citrus and pine and then a ton of spice from the Belgian yeast. Pretty solid.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JAN 4, 2013
Definitely an IPA and Belgian ale hybrid. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is citrus, Belgian yeast, herbal. Medium bodied. Flavor is similar to the aroma. More of a distinct IPA and Belgian ale mix than one that really melts together. Still, solid brew.

Ontario coast, huh? Let me tell you a little about the Ontario coast. The beaches are infected with bacteria to the point where they don’t even let you swim in the water. There’s gang fights at the Ontario Beach Park. Murders. Muggings. For real. Garbage in the sand. Disgusting. So why would you name your beer after this? And then, why would you put a picture of this on the label? /end rant. Now for the review. Pours a clear gold color with a 2 finger off white head. Aromas of clove, spices, floral hops. Fuck. Why don’t they advertise this a a Belgian style IPA? If I’d known this, I would have scrolled past. Ok, first sip reveals a hopped up Belgian blond ale. Meh. Not bad but not very exciting either. This is OK at best. Not something I would buy again.
