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.

Very hoppy and malty aroma and a clear golden color with a super thick off white head. Has earthy tones (grass, barnyard, dirt) but balances out extremely well. Theres a nice nuttiness in the after taste. Made with Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus and Nugget hops.

Vignale (3507) - Malm, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
Drucken p fat p Bishop. Vackert kopparrd/brnstensfrgad. Men ingen stor humledoft- eller smak och tar man bort det frn en DIPA s blir det ju bara starkt och stt. Vet inte om jag fick det sista i fatet eller om denna batch blivit smre n andra. Det jag fick var iaf en riktigt trkig l.

Foxbush (1897) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
12 oz bottle This was an IPA that I have saved for the 4th round of the PGA. The IPA poured a slightly hazy gold color with a small off-white head. The aroma was a fruity hoppy bitter citrus. The taste of bitter like grapefruit greeted you through out the beverage. The medium body IPA was very good. The carbonation was average for this excellent Imperial IPA. The finish left a bitterness in the upper mouth and a long aftertaste.

yngwie (16718) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. A finger-thick off-white head forms over a lightly hazy golden body. Oranges, citrus peel, pine cones and some generic tropical fruits in the aroma. Some maltyness. The flavor is maybe a bit sweet, but theres enough bitterness to deal with it. Pale malts, pine cones, orange peel and some canned tropical fruits in the flavor. Full body, with a pleasant carbonation level. Long, bitter and fruity finish. Dangerously easy drinkable this one, and tasteful too. 130809
