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.

Goodgrief (2017) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2013
On tap at Pinocchios. Pour looks like brought apple juice. Rich, hoppy aroma. Complex hop profile...citrus, grain and resin. Melon fruitiness, good level of sweetness too balance out a fairly aggressive hop profile. Tasty.

jefcon (1775) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2017
Tons of hop flavors, mostly in the range of tropical and citrus fruit. Present on the nose, the palate and the finish. Juicy, with a quenching palate as well as a nice drying finish. Looks great in the glass: copper hued and lacy.

Clear golden color. Nice floral smell and aroma of fruits. Taste is fruity with citrus and orange. Even high IBU the bitterness is nice balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ccex (1267) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Reading the label led to dashed high hopes. When I tasted this, I thought it was just another IPA. Its deceptively simple to drink, despite the 8.5% which will eventually creep up on you. 12 oz. bottle pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with moderate off-white head and very little lacing. Aroma is not obvious, but mostly tropical fruits and floral hops. Taste is bitter, but not excessively so. Body is medium with average carbonation. I would have rated this higher if they didnt call it "Imperial".

(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with orange peel, marmalade, apricots, treacle-toffee, grapefruit and fresh floral, citric hops. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, apricots, treacle-toffee, grapefruit, caramel, some hay and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Well balanced IIPA, with a generous citric hop presence and lots of caramel/toffee malt. Very nice.

tfontana (911) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear golden-amber with trace sparkle, less than finger-width foamy white head with poor retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, candied sugar, citrus and light resin. Taste follows aroma. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin, foamy texture, soft-to-average carbonation with mix of sweet and bitter finish. Overall, appearance and palate we profoundly average and the hop mix in aroma and taste is good but flirts gets precariously close to industrial cleanser scent.

Poured from bottle into shaker. Color is a foggy yellow, like three day old piss. Most excellent. A fingers thickness of head that quickly dissipated left nice lacing. Smell is grapefruit and oranges, hops, mowed lawns, and pure sweet California sunshine. Upon tasting, bitterness sensationalizes my tongue. Slick mouthfeel. Piney hops and clean citrus are not overpowering but utterly drinkable. All in all a sexy IIPA.
