Pours bright gold with maybe a tad of copper hue. Nice foam cap with great lacing down the glass.

Very citrus forward aroma. There is some pine in the background supported by fresh orange and grapefruit. Definitely leans West Coast style.

Fresh juicy citrus in the flavor too. Lots of dry hopping here as the front of the palate tastes like biting into a tangerine. As those flavors fades, a touch of malt comes out as well. Finishes piney with a tad bit of alcohol burn.

Medium bodied, but still fairly light on the palate, since the body comes more from the fruit juice aspect than malts. Only slight complaint is alcohol is a touch too noticeable for the ABV.

Very tasty beer and a good west coast style offering. Delicious juicy fruit sensation. Only minor quibble is I wish it were a bit smoother. I'd definitely drink this anyday.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: 16 oz can. Two pours into my glass. First pour revealed a clear yellow beer with a slight orange tint. Second pour dumped a bunch of yeast sediment into my glass, giving the beer a very cloudy pastel orange-yellow color. Forms a large fluffy very-off-white head. Good retention, but little lacing.

S: Aroma is pleasantly hop forward. Mostly citrus. Grapefruit. Maybe a touch of orange some lighter pine notes.

T: Taste is also fairly hoppy. There is a light pale malt base. Neither sweet nor dry. Then juicy citrus, orange, grapefruit, and grapefruit zest. A good bit of earthy pine resin on the back end.

M: Medium bodied. Moderate bitterness. Lower carbonation.

O: I've got to admit, I wasn't expecting much out of an IPA from a brewery out Oklahoma, but this is a very respectable IPA. Not overly hoppy, but certainly hop forward with a restrained malt base.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Got this as an extra in a trade from a nice fellow in OK. Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass. Canned on 3/7/14, so drinking it 4 weeks old.

A - Very dark caramel color with quite a bit of haze. Very little off white colored head with hardly any lacing.

S - Citrusy hop aroma with a slight bready, malty sweetness.

T - Well balanced piney and citrusy hop flavor with just enough sweetness from the malt.

M - Full bodied up front, but not syrupy. Finishes cleanly with just enough bitterness to make you thirsty for the next sip.

O - Very nice IPA from Coop Ale Works. I wouldn't mind drinking this pretty often if I lived in Oklahoma.

I love Coop's F5.

When I'm home in Oklahoma, it's on tap at the bar I go to and everyone is drinking it.

the F5 is hopped with a combo of Columbus and Falconers Flight and while you might expect it (considering its IBU is 100) to be a bitter citrus bomb, it's a nicely balanced IPA. It tastes like sun in a glass--bright, hot, resiny, citrusy, and with a nice bite. This is a sit-down-and-drink-em beer as well as a drink-it-all-evening-and-dance beer.

I love it and will, on occasion, trade what I can get up here in NYC for a few super-fresh cans of this stuff.
