COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the West Coast IPA is well-balanced and huge in hop flavor and aroma without overpowering bitterness. A blend of hop varietals yields tropical fruit aromatics that give way to flavors of grapefruit and pine. The balancing malt presence brings out a bready character and light caramel undertones that lay the foundation to showcase the hops. Welcome to the endless West-Coast Summer!

Tmoney99 (14764) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Draft sample. Poured clear orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop and small sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate complex bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good complex brew.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2015
4oz on tap at Hopgeist. Clear golden orange color. Great half-finger of off-white head. Good thicker lace. Medium-plus body, with a smooth, creamy lighter to moderate carbonation. Kind of crisp. Biscuity bready malt, some pepper and citrus and pine. Lighter to moderate sweet taste, moderate to bigger bitter. Solid, hoppy IPA, but some interesting kinda sweet malt to it too.

blipp (9502) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Plain flowery hops, relatively light bitterness, light sweetness, and a quick floral hoppy finish. Nothing offensive, but in the world of IPAs, really nothing special either.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Tasting paddle. Starting to lose track of the specifics, but I recall an enjoyable IPA, not overly bitter, very drinkable.

22oz bottle from a liquor store in Temecula
Pours cloudy golden with a medium sized off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is fruity, tea and pine. Taste of tropical fruit, oranges and lemon
Nice and smooth

944play (422) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Draft at Sprenger’s. Bright deep gold with receding scraggly froth. Aroma as American as cowboy bald eagle Stratocaster baseballs, pungent and stemmy. Assertive flavors evoke radicchio, lime, and 7up. Sweet enough in the finish to be a satisfying beverage independent of accompaniment.

2.8
callmemickey (4549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Lightly hazy golden-orange body, medium to thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Shampoo, bubblegum, and cracker. Not much else. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, soft bitterness, light sweetness, muted hinish.

2.9
PhillyCraft (7585) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle at Bills with some Dads. Smell and flavor are bubblegum and not too hoppy. Barely any bitterness plus a touch caramel sweet. Pass on this west coast IPA.

jredmond (8445) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle courtesy of frank at bills. Pours a bright hazy orange with white lacing. Nose is honey drizzled grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium to dry with notes of dry spice and bitter flowers.

3.6
Wittales (762) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Best by date 1/31/15 Appearance was clear golden with lasting creamy white 2 finger lacing. Aromas are soft grapefruit, orange, lemon with slight crackery malt sweetness, no alcohol. Taste is citrus of orange, grapefruit and lemon upfront but restraint. Middle is soft sweet bread malts with onion, grapefruit and mild pine backend. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with medium body, then balanced soft smooth bitter finish. Overall a mild west coast ipa, not in your face bitterness.
