COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermenter for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Green colored 12oz can pours with a deep gold body and a bit of haze supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up slippery sweet citrus with some resiny grass notes. The taste is similar with a pleasing thick resiny bitter citrus notes backed up by some malt sweetness. It gets a little earthy with black tea leaves into the finish which only enhances the experience. Darn tasty IPA.

RexTalionis (2949) - FINLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Draught. Pours copper in color with a small whitish head. Fresh orange peel and a bit of lemony notes as well in aroma. Some fresh cut grass as well. Mouthfeel is really smooth, not a sign of any harshness. A bit of grassy bitterness in taste accompanied by some lemony juicyness. A bit of bloodgrapefruit in aftertaste. Easy to drink and works well after a hard day of work, preferably outside on the terrace and with the sun shining.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2013
On tap at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Pours a clear, deep gold colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is bitter kumquats and oranges with some sweet pink grapefruits and a medium sweet caramel malt backing. Some resins, pines, and florals as well. Flavor is similar. Bitter citrus peels with a light sweetness and a good amount of resins. Florals, pines, and a nice caramel backing. Finishes dry and moderately bitter with some resiny kumquats and a nice caramel note. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice IPA. Very unique citrus element and well balanced with a nice caramel backing. Great beer.

Poured a slightly hazy orange/yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, very fresh. Medium, lively body, flavour of pine, grapefruit and muted malt undertones with a bitter, astringent end. Excellent for the style.

chinchill (2721) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2013
An East Coast/West Coast showdown tonight, with a Westbrook IPA (12 oz can; date stamp shows it was canned only 3 weeks ago) up against Green Flash Hop Head Red (12 oz bottle; marketed as a “red IPA”; also very fresh according to date stamp). Perhaps giving the underdog a slight advantage, I start with the Westbrook. The Westbrook pours an attractive, hazy, orange-amber with a bone-colored head that has moderate retention and size. Lacing is quite nice for an IPA. Aroma: IPA credentials are intact with the powerful aroma of floral, herbal and citrus hops, and a hint of spruce. Some malt presence too, giving it a nice baked bread background. T: A rich floral-piney-citrus hop mix. The claimed IBU of 60 seems right; despite the aroma and hop flavor, this is not overly bitter. M: Medium body with soft but medium-high carbonation; lively but not harsh; dry finish. O: A solid West Coast style American IPA with a mix of floral, piney and citrus elements. Clearly more complex and appealing than the Green Flash. Recommended.
