COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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?

Sampled at TWCP Beer Fest 2013. It poured a hazy yellow/golden color with a white head. The aroma was of lemony citrus hops. The taste was bright and heavily focused on the citric hops. Not bad.

This was sent to me my Strykzone via a trade. Thanks Dace. A gusher which ofter indicates oxidation. Poured cloudy gold. White head the boiled up. Nose of sourness and citrus. Medium body. Flavor is indeed an oxidized sourness but the big citrus hops offset it and makes this quite drinkable Do not think this is how the brewer intended it but the end result is a perfectly decent beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with thin white head. Aroma is light citrus. Taste is grapefruit, orange, moderate hops. Good but missing a little something.

Bomber from Antioch Fine Wine. No bottle date ..... hate that, especially on IPAs. Pours a bit of a foamy unclear orange with a lot of sub-surface bubbles. Some streaky lace from the foam. Aroma has very tangy spicy yeast, some citrus and light toffee. Taste is spicy yeast, some orange, some clove, and just a bit of sweet caramel. Light to medium bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes sweetly tangy and quite dry. Didn’t love, didn’t really like. Drinkable, and if you like belgian IPAs, perhaps solid. 13.1

kaser (4181) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Poured from 22oz bottle at home. Crazy bright orange and cloudy - a TON of bubbly white head. Massive fruity taste. Almost too much. Hoppy and bitter. Just so fruity but decent

Cybercat (4085) - Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a nice eggshell head. Aroma is hoppy, more resiny than woody, with strong fruity and floral notes. Hops dominate the flavor, with apple, pear, grapefruit and Mandarin orange as backup notes and a bit of sweet malt. Texture is smooth and fairly firm, it not very fizzy. Whatever coast you’re near, enjoy.

Thought this to be a refreshing and solid beer from 3 Heads. Was very surprised at the satisfying taste from a east meets west blend.

Sampled on draft at the Railroad in Linfield, PA. This IPA poured a light gold color with a pillow-like white head. The nose was full of hops, along with some notes of grass and earth. The head left some nice lacing around the glass, as well. The flavors were crisp and hoppy with some slight woody and citrus tones. The beer finished quite spicy and a little on the dry side.
