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.

in the glass it is a golden color, with a slight amber tinge. about a half inch worth of head, somewhat cloudy. This beer leaves behind a ton of lacing!

The smell leads into a whole lotta GRAPEFRUIT! Very pungent, the aromatic hops just grab you and pull you into the beer. Even a non-beer drinker remarked "Wow, this smells different from other beers".

As in the smell, lots of grapefruit flavor, as well as other tropical goodness akin to pineapple. Tons of hop flavor, but with moderate bitterness. a little bit of biscuity malt in the background to balance out so many of the bold flavors.

light-medium bodied, it's a bit on the lighter side since it's so hop-forward. It possesses a very bright character, somewhat dank and juicy.

I don't know how they do it, but COOP is taking the Hop and making it accessible with this beer. with the dampened bitterness, and the big fruity flavor, this beer is extremely drinkable at 7.00% abv. I never really tasted the alcohol at all.

Poured into an IPA glass. The lquid is a darkish translucent golden orange. The pour produces a significant three-finger off-white head that takes several minutes to die down, and leaves lots of lace as you drain the glass. Tons of bubbles rise up through the liquid. Classic IPA appearance.

Aroma is citrusy hops, with hints of sweet malt underneath. Orange zest, sugar cookie, etc, etc, etc. Wonderful!

Flavor follows the nose - citrusy hops well-balanced by bready malts. Maybe a little bit of mint in there. Finish is pretty bitter and drying (maybe a little too much for my taste), but the aftertaste is pleasantly citrusy, creating a nice counterpoint.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick, little bit oily, with heavy carbonation - to style.

Overall, super well-executed IPA. Really well-balanced, but just tongue-shredding enough.

Pours a gorgeous golden copperish color with small white head,this is so close to tasting like what's on tap. Canned 3 days ago.

Smells of citrus, grapefruit and pine begging to be tasted.

Taste is much more aggressive than the smell. Super citrusy face slamming hops, grapefruit and pine finish with a slight malt. Columbus and Falconer's Flight hops FTW.

Dry bitter finish that leaves your taste buds craving more.

Overall absofreakinlutely amazing. Left coast style done right in the Midwest.
