COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It doesnt take a genius to kno w quality West Coast IPAs require a stupid amount of hops. A generous blend of Nugget hops and the four CsCascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbusbrings forth a myriad of tropical fruit flavors and a brawny, persistent bitterness that makes for a highly intelligent brew.

Theydon_Bois (18741) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Keg at 3 sm rum, Gteborg, 21/03/14. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is caramel malt, candied orange peel, sugars, bitter hop presence, citric lead fruit rind. Taste comprises caramel malt, sweet flavours, bitter tropicals, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, lower down the style rankings for me, a little too sweet.

jinroh (1457) - ESTONIA - APR 3, 2014
Pours quite clear amber, doesnt actually look like this one is going to be very hoppy. But it is. Aroma has some concentrated fresh hops that feel like in pine forest. Taste has a sharp bitter edge - that is nicely balanced with a malt backbone, so at least for me it doesnt feel too bitter, only pleasantly so. Resin, pine needles, dry lingering bitter aftertaste. Very nice.

Hermod (7230) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle @ Kaisla. Amber color, lacing white head. Pineapple, citrus fruits and caramel in aroma. Taste of grapefruit, pine, blood oranges, sweetness. Strong bitterness, very bitter. And it lasts. Could be fresher, but I accept it as it is for now. Rerate later when in CA.

Bottled 29/11/2013 - Pours copper orange with a thick white head. Aroma of caramely malts, some fruity hops, gooseberries and grapefruit. Taste is smooth, sweetish, malty and caramely with some fruity hoppiness. Finish is smooth, malty and lingering bitter with some stuffy maltiness. A bit unbalanced, doesnt feel very fresh.

A really enjoyable IPA. Aroma is peppery, bready, fruity... a little bit of everything. The flavor is the same.... extremely complex. Nice full mouthfeel and velvety smooth. No lingering bitterness. Delicious!
