Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bump8628 on 04-11-2010

A straightforward malt body supports the distinctive bouquet of Columbus and Falconers Flight hops that impart citrus, grapefruit and pine notes characteristic of the West Coast style. F5 is a belligerent hop reckoning.

A very tight IPA that swirls just like the name.

A- rich golden hue

S- citrus, pine, lots of depth, big bold hop character

T- huge bright hops that linger with just enough malt to round it out and add a bit of balance

M- snappy, dry, refreshing

O- great ipa, crisp, very drinkable, hops with a big hit, really nice depth of character. I need another one!

A - hazey orange with nice lacing and fair head retention

S - floral hops and a bit of skunk.

T - great amazing taste from start to finish. I could drink this all day.

M - Crisp and full carbonation.

D - favorite of Coop's beers. So drinkable, I can't wait for these to come out in bottles or cans.

Had on tap at: Lucille's Roadhouse Weatherford, OK.

Had this on tap at the Speakeasy in Oklahoma City, which is RIGHT next door to Coop's very small brewery.

A - Hazy yellow, light for this style, but I've found that to be a good thing for my palette.

S - Hops, citrus, grapefruit.

T - Very hoppy, a lot of citrus, especially grapefruit, a bit of pine, and almost earthy, but very clean and fresh. Well balanced.

O - Coop nailed this one, great job! This is one of my favorite styles, and the F5 is in my top 5. I put it up there near 3Floyd's Dreadnaught and 3Floyd's Arctic Panzer Wolf (reminded me a lot of this one actually). I heard Coop is planning on canning this soon, and I think that is a great business decision for them. :)

If you like this style, and have the opportunity, drink this. Highly recommended!

Coop F-5, served in a pint at McNellie's in Tulsa for $4.50.

Appearance: Good frothy white head, about one finger. Good retention and lacing. Hazy malty-honey color, reminds me of Double Simcoe.

Smell: Piney, soapy, briny. Raw honey, clover, spice. Dirty puddles, sugar. YUM!

Taste: Flower Power! The smell does not quite prepare you for the onslaught of hops. Floral hops, pomelo. Malty backbone and a bit of cleaning product (you know, that "open window" smelll). BITTER!

Mouthfeel: Dry, astringent, hoppy. Water, please! Prickly, resiny. Full body and flavor, great carbonation.

Overall: A truly exceptional IPA. If this were made by, say, Green Flash, folks would be all over it. Drinkable, extremely tasty, a hop-lover's delight!! Well done, Oklahoma.
