COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The California Gold Rush compelled thousands to Go West! to see the elephant, a metaphor for the doggedly optimistic risk-taking linked then and now with Americas intensified pursuit of happiness. As early as 1849, India Pale Aleprepared by British brewers for export to India by adding dry hops to barrels of hoppy alewas also going west, from England around the Horn to San Francisco. In 1975, AnchorAmericas first craft breweryled the modern revival of dry-hopped handmade ales.

Fast-forward to Go West! IPA, made with 2-row pale barley malt and dry-hopped with a unique blend of 4 American hops. Its mouthwateringly complex aromas of citrus, pine, and the tropics; spiky bitterness; gleaming golden color; and clean finish unite to create this singular 24-karat IPA. Go West!, where the impossible is possible.

This brew pours bright, clear golden color with light tan head, has strong tropical and citrus fruit aromas balanced by the spiky freshness of pine needles. You get bitterness up front followed by subtly sweet maltiness, a light body and very smooth finish. You get hop bitterness, clean and fresh, and a hint of sweetness creates a complexity that leaves you wanting more.

Malt: 2-Row Pale
Hops: Apollo, Bravo
Dry Hops: Citra, Equinox, Calypso, Eureka!

Pours hazy orange color, topped with a large and very lasting off-white head, very creamy. Milder fruity hoppy nose with slightly dusty feel and some pine notes. Moderate bitterness, extra piney and also herbal and grassy feel to it with some decent malty back. Medium body. Lasting aftertaste.

It is a beer of a style that is not one of my favorites. It is a normal beer too. It seems made for the general public does not seek complexity beer. Left me quite indifferent. It is a beer that does not repeat.

Juggernaut84 (266) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 16, 2017
Sattes Orange, fester hoher Schaum, optisch macht ea richtig lust zu trinken. In der Nase ist es mega frisch, harzig, honig und tropische Frchte, ganz toll! Im Geschmack ist es leider garnicht mein Fall sehr sehr trocken, dadurch sticht der Alkohol sehr harsch und sprittig durch. Der Abgang ist ebenfalls alkoholisch und trocken, die Bittere ist moderat bis herb.
