Beer added by: jaydoc on 06-11-2014

Beer Camp Across America West Coast Double IPA clocks in at 8.5% ABV and features five hop varieties, two of which went into Sierra Nevada’s “Hop Torpedo” dry-hopping device and impart hints of grapefruit and a floral note that recalls orange blossom. A light malt body and dry finish complement the bold hop profile.

Brewed as an invite for the 2014 Beer Camp Across America tour.  http://beercamp.sierranevada.com

Nice initial taste. Kind of like green flash west coast ipa but with a more malty taste. But not as malty as hopageddon

Pours nearly clear, golden yellow color with a big, barely off-white head. Scattered curtains of lacing remain from the slow-to-dissipate foam.
Smell is weak, just a little citrus hops and some cardboard.
Taste is nowhere near where I expect a "West Coast Double IPA" to be. Hops are seriously restrained (for the style) and of the citrus and evergreen varieties, some malt, some green wood, some spice. Balance is quite good.
Medium plus body with a medium effervescence. Dry finish and cleaner than I thought it would be. A good beer with a weak nose.

Pours a huge, soapy, white head with decent lacing. A nice, citric hop aroma that is a touch sharp and has notes of candied fruit. Hazy, golden color. Starts with big notes of grapefruit and citrus rind. Builds into a high bitterness with more floral, citrus notes. A sharp, building bitterness lingers into the finish; citrus rind.

This is about what I expected, but the lingering bitterness isn't as grotesque as I've come to expect from West Coast IPA's, which are never a hop profile I like. This one is better balanced than many, though.
