Pours into an imperial nonic a dull lighter copper color with a lacey thinner white head atop.Full on juicy tropical fruits in the nose,mango and lime stands out with a mildly sweet biscuit base and toasted grain note as well.Flavors of tropical fruits,leafiness, and caramel malts,a noticable toasted cereal note in the finish,man I love the Cira hops.A great fresh tasting left coast IPA from Black Mountain,Pisgah is solid.

Growler from Appalachian Vintner consumed streamside in the Pisgah. West Coast is a medium amber in color and capped with a full, well retained head. Generous hops cut right through the grainy, lightly caramelized body with big grapefruit and woody pine. Light to medium in body with a cleansing, moderate carbonation. Bitterness hits quickly and lingers long. Dank and resinous, maybe lacking a little in the exotic fruits and vivid citrus that seem to define a top-tier IPA, but a clear improvement over their standard IPA and a winner in my book.
