COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermenter for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

12 oz. can. 60 IBUs per the label. Pours a thick, well retained off white head, with moderate lacing, over a slightly hazy dark yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is light pine, multiple fruits including orange, lemon, light malts with sweet tones, bread, cracker, nicely balanced......taste is mildly floral honey sweet, with light malts, pine, light citrus fruits, finishing with moderate bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, mild alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a soft, mellow, easy drinking IPA. The malts and hops are both pleasantly complex in aroma and flavor and are nicely balanced. This is not a West Coast IPA, it is a bit more East Coast in direction. BJCP 7/3/15/5/7

Definitely my favorite Westbrook brew I have sampled so far, and I definitely look forward to trying this one again! Recently had this on tap, poured a clear and slightly gold-accented yellow-orange color, with a long-lasting foamy head. Aroma was a relatively moderate piney hoppiness, understated but fresh. Flavor follows as a well balanced pine and citrus hop palate with a nice balance of toasty caramel maltiness. medium-bodied. Overall truly just an exceptionally well-balanced true-to-form example of the style, and very drinkable at that.

Pours amber with white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, hops, lime, some caramel. Flavour is just the same with a dry long bitter finish. Lively carbonation, medium body. Not so balanced though.

12oz. can. Golden color, fluffy white head. Not much malt to speak of in this one - VERY hoppy with a big bitter finish. Lots of grapefruit notes throughout. Really liked it.

16 miesiecy od zapuszkowania. Piana drobo i sredniopecherzykowa, zbita, trwala, od gory jak krem.Barwa jasna, zamglona, w piwie plywaja rozne drobinki, w tym czarne. Kupilem to piwo przez pomylke (na szybko) bo myslalem, ze ma 4 miesiace. W domu facepalm - 16 miesiecy :) Nastawilem się sceptycznie. Tak stara IPA nie moze byc dobra. Otwarłem puszkę, nalałem do szkła. Pierwsze zaskoczenie, aromat chmielowy, mimo ze "wyblakły", nadal jest. Przyjemny, białe owoce, winogrona, melon. Centennial na bank. Żywica i landrynka też jest. Nienachalne utlenienie. W smaku bardzo gładkie, smukłe. Ciasteczkowa słodowość, "wyblakły" chmiel i krtka przyjemna cytrusowa goryczka. Bardzo przyjemne, niesamowicie pijalne, nie sposob wyczuć tu nut alkoholowych. Nie chciałem wyrazac swojej opinii na temat tego piwa ze wzgledu na jego wiek, bo to bez sensu. Nie mniej jednak pomyslalem, ze skoro tak stara IPA nadal ma walory chmielowe, nadal jest smaczna i powiem szczerze, lepsza niz niektore polskie odpowiedniki jakie mialem okazje pić... no to trzeba to docenić. To świadczy o tym jak wysokiej jakości jest to trunek.

Big aromas of pine apple and pine trees. Super hazy orange with a white head. Very mild perfume hop with a malt back up. Sweet and a bit over balanced for the ipa.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a slightly hazy gold color with a large white head. The aroma is full of hops with some citrus. The taste is citrus with some hops. An excellent beer.
