COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aroma Coma is our summer seasonal India Pale Ale. Weve brewed it annually since 2009 for a local IPA festival, where it was selected one of the top three beers in the competition. The malt bill consists of almost all 2-row barley malt, with a touch of Caramalt for body - leaving you with a delightfully hop-forward experience. Generous amounts of Cascade, Chinook, CTZ & Citra hops create the citrus, pine, and floral notes. Breathe Em in and enjoy!

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is pine, guava, grapefruit, dank earth. Taste is the same with some honey notes mixed in. Very aromatic (as the name implies) and refreshing.

Another great offering from drakes from bomber to pint glass. Massive citrus that is well balanced by the pine.

On tap, orange golden color with medoum sized head and lacing. Notes of Citra and cascade coming through nicely with some grapefruit, orange skin, and caramel malt. Medoum bodied solid ipa.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong floral hop and tropical fruit. Medium mouth, sweet caramel, honey, dark fruit, citrus hop with resin finish, very nice.

manuelMTL (240) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Pour is clear golden with a huge frothy white head. The nose is grapefruit, citrus and some toastiness. Taste is loads of citrus and grapefruit, some grassy hops with a long pine bitterness. Pretty dry for an IPA. Low carbonation! Well done West Coast IPA!

Not as much of a hop nose as I thought I would get from this brew, but surely a nice hoppy aroma coming from the glass. Poured from a bomber into a tulip, the hazy, light-gold liquid is capped with a dense, soft, and off-white foam. My senses tell me caramel apples until I take the first mouthful, and then a grapefruit/resin takes over the show. Bitter and deep, the mouth feel is actually a little too dry for my taste, but only by a hair. The head is spectacular, despite the 20 minute wait from pour to finish; still dense, thick and crawling up the glass in a thick wave...lacing to the top. The taste is moderately bitter, and seems to block the flavor that should be there, considering that aroma. The Citra hops seem to be non-existent in the flavor profile and thats just sad, because there is no fruit or floral bend at all. Im a little disappointed in this and am wondering if maybe its just been treated badly. Ill try it again.

Cloudy orange pour, modest white head. Very forward aroma (go figure) of pine and grapefruit. Lots of citrusy, bitter hop flavors mixing around, perhaps a bit unbalanced as the malt definitely stays in the background. I love over the top IPAs so this one is a winner but probably not everyones style.

Ibrew2or3 (8508) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a clear gold body that supports a near white head. The aroma offers up tangerine and clementine citrus hops that are very inviting and bordered thinly by a bit of sweet malts and faint spicy dankness. The taste comes across spicy and dank with onions as well as wedges of tangerine and clementine citrus hoppy goodness. This offers up easy drinking deliciousness with well balanced flavor and bitter hops. I could stand here in line and drink this until they kick me out.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are full of great IPA notes. I get a lot of orange citrus as well as some pine. There is a good bit of bitterness to go with the big-time hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Everything goes together nicely in this excellent beer.
