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!

If you can get your hands on a pint of the IPA from Eagle Rock, I highly recommend Populist. Delicious pine and citrus notes with a little fresh marijuana thrown in. Taste is like the small and the mouthfeel is perfect for a sessionable 7% beer.

Had this one on-tap at Tony’s Darts Away in Burbank on 3/12/12. A full-to-the-brim pint, just like I like it. A thin sheet of white lace caps off this transparent golden-orange brew. The aroma is so sweet and floral, it takes effort to pull my nose out of this one. Big citrus overtones. Love it. The mouthfeel is crisp, yet filling. A really rich velvety finish. The hops on this one don’t shy away from bitter, but there is a really nice sweet balance to them as well. Sweet candy-like finish. Lot’s of citrus pervades this one - orange, grapefruit, tangerine. Really lush flavorful hops were used in this one, and the brewers did a standout job putting this one together.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 Pours a light gold color with a decent head in a taster glass. Aroma is grapefruit and Orange with a bready sweet Barely corn malty note with a citrucy tropical hop presence. Taste is more citrucy hop foreword with the sweet Barely corn malt backbone. Very very nice Ipa!!

Nice, slightly hazy amber and copper coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of fresh grassy and citrus hops with a bit of pineapple, resin and a hint of alcohol noticeable as well. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive grassy and herbal hops with a very potent and nice malt backbone, a lot of resin and a dry, almost oaky flavour. Aftertaste shows some alcohol, tons of malt, some herbal and dry notes and a lot of hops - very bitter, but very nice. Overall, this is a very nice IPA and definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, California on 05-August-2012 for US$5.77 sampled at home in Washington on 04-November-2012.

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.

I had a sample of this at the brewery last night and took home a 4 pack of cans. In a BJ’s Hefeweizen glass this pours gold with big head and lace. Aroma of grapefruit juice, hay, grains. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, bright malts, pine, white grapefruit rind, pepper, citrus zest. Overall big, rich, bold but quite flavorful.

Might be my favorite ER offering. Brilliant citrus aroma of grapefruit and oranges. All about the hops with a dry bitter finish. Brilliant hop profile bursting from a frothy white head on an orange-amber color. Awesome. Beer for the people!

Tap at Eagle Rock. Pours a clear orange, huge formation, thick lacing. Nose is excellent grapefruit, pine, and resin. Very fresh. Taste is rich toffee, caramel, grapefruit. Creamy, dense palate. Chewy. Butterscotch and pine resin through the finish. An excellent West Coast IPA. Very good.
