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.

Bottle at home. Clear orange amber, pale yellow highlights. Two fingers white bubbly head that gradually fades. Nose is big orange peel, marmalade, fresh pineapple. Taste is big juicy marmalade sweetness with a big hit of boozy hops that takes over almost instantly, right through to a long bitter linger. Lovely rich DIPA.

(On draught at Hungry Monk). Pours a clear copper color with creamy off-white head that shows some nice lacing. Active carbonation. Aroma has some pine, resin, orange, grapefruit and a bit of dank hops. Taste is sweet malt with some in-your-face bitterness. Medium bodied with an oily texture. The head adds a creamy element to the beer and helps to tone down the bitterness a bit. Pretty nice DIPA.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 8, 2011
[Bottle] Clear copper appearance, good head formation. Fruity hop aroma, grapefruit and apricot, piney and mildly spicy, caramel malts somewhat hidden but present. Creamy caramel malts appear right away on the palate but grapefruit bitterness and spice jumps in fast. Theres some tropical fruit towards the end but grapefruit dominates the aftertaste. Readlly good DIPA.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Pale golden with a tall lasting head that reduces slowly leaving behind a spattered sheet of pancake batter. Aromas of dusty hop spears and sweet candy malt. Medium full nectar with excellent carbonation, gives it somewhat of a creamy texture. This is my kind of IPA, fresh squeezed from the vines and trees. Candy coated malt blubber yet not sweet, some dusty hay bales. Good acid balances this beast. Oh so fresh like driving 5hrs to the beach in the hot summer wind and finally jumping into the ocean all cool like a brisk breeze in the desert. Freakin bravo grande on this one.

Golden pour with nice off white head. Aroma is lots of grapefruit and floral. Taste is piney and resinous with some citrus bitterness. Nice tasty finish. Good IPA.

zizzybalubba (1844) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Wine 101 in Wake Forest, NC. Hazy, dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Incredible aroma of grapefruit rind, pine needles, and sweet caramel. Super hoppy bitter pine flavor with a generous amount of malt sweetness. Some moderate alcohol warming and a lasting pine and grassy aftertaste. Really great stuff.

Draught at Cask Republic. Pours gold/copper with a tan head. Smells of resiny hops, some sweet hints, spicy. Tastes sappy, resiny, bitter, sweet with a peppery finish.

Mild citrus aroma, not much to talk off here. Nice looking beer golden orange colour with lots of white lacing. Sweet malty at first with a hop citrus kick at the end. Not a bad beer.
