As craft beer pioneers, we embarked on an expedition to brew the benchmark West Coast IPA. We ventured into the unknown and struck gold, discovering a tantalizing menagerie of hops. Simcoe for tropical and grapefruit zest, Columbus for hop pungency, Centennial for pine notes, Citra for citrus zest, and Cascade for floral aroma are layered throughout the brewing process. West Coast IPA exemplifies the Green Flash spirit of adventure and discovery.

Clareeses (90) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2017
On draft at Yardhouse. Hoppy, floral aroma. Pours clear amber with little head retention but moderate carbonation. Taste is heavy on floral and citrusy hops with bitter and boozy finish. A classic DIPA, heavy on the hops, not as common nowadays but one that I always appreciate.

Muggus69 (2414) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2017
355mL bottle from Beer Love online. BB 05APR17 - whoops Pours a hazy copper body, white head. Plenty of pine & spice & leafy dried herbs & grapefruit on the nose, toasty malt in there. Big body, very resiny, lingering, sticky. Intense body - lots of pine needle & sap, grapefruit rind, dried herbs, biscuity malt sweetness is hardly enough to cut through an aggressive lingering bitterness. Full on, takes the palate for a good ride!

Love the aromatic hops and taste even better served super cold. The price is a little high but the beer is definitely worth the added cost. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
