COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It doesn’t 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 Cs—Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbus—brings forth a myriad of tropical fruit flavors and a brawny, persistent bitterness that makes for a highly intelligent brew.

A perfect five yes. This beast has it all from citrus black pepper floral hop aroma. Perfectly clear. Excellent lacing head lasted for ever. Crystal clear fantastic. Sharp bitterness up front saturd around a while and finished clean. If you can get this do so. Worth the price. Even here.

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.

Amazing IPA. Highly attenuative yeast produced a crisp, refreshing brew with light caramel color and piney hop flavor.

Bottle at the legend of Chriso’s pre GBBF09 Tasting. Alround rating: Massive hops, like incredibly intence lychee orange peel mango fruity amazingness, the body is up the the task of balancing it but there still a huge bittering dryness in the finish. The answer to all this immence hoppyness seems to be because the beer is dry hopped in the bottle as i found out when i took my last drink to then pull a few hop leafs out my mouth. Utterly outstanding!

Pours wonderful hazy orange little head and coats the glass nicely. Smells oh so so skunky in the best chronic way possible like lemon, kush and skunk cabbbage and a little boozy. Tastes so bomb and complex hoppy flavors.
