Decanted from can into my great lakes tumbler...
Was fortunate to come across this one while in South Carolina for a wedding...picked it up at the local Piggly Wiggly near Isle of Palms. PW had a very impressive beer selection of local, regional, international, and of course macro...they even had 6 or so beers on tap mostly local/regional...very nice job PW...
Back to Westbrook IPA...
A - hazy orange, creamy 1/w inch head, some good lacing...i love a cloudy unfiltered ipa!
S - initial crack of the can is of piney, grassy, herbacious and citrus notes...a beautiful combo...with some breathing the nose does dissapate a bit but leaves a nice sweet citrus and yeasty-bread aroma...very complex for an IPA
T - mimics the smell almost exactly with a creamy-yeastiness that you get from the unfiltered quaility...very great flavors happening here...
M - very nice smooth and creamy mouth feel, light carbonation, medium-light body.
Ovearll - An excellent IPA...a bit pricey but worth it...give this a try if you are in South Carolina or nearby! A great go too IPA and a refreshing one for spring and summer months! Cheers!

S: Very fresh-cut grass like, resiny hoppiness, intense, candy-like grapefruit, pine with a prominent malt aroma in the background.
L: Hazy dark burnt orange. White creamy head that dissipates. Ok lacing.
T: Big malt backbone followed quickly by a grassy, fresh hoppiness. Medium, grassy bitterness, quite smooth. Grapefruit peel and fresh cut grass hop taste with some pine. Has a very bisquity maltiness, but not heavy or masking the hops. Finishes dry with some resin.
M: Medium full body, refreshing, medium carbonation.
A very unique IPA, but i loved it. Loved the grassiness with the grapefruit/pine, almost had a negroni taste to it. Malt backbone elevated the without being dentrimental, rare in an IPA. A must try.

Easy drinking IPA with a citrus hop and a hint of apple. Hops lean towards bitterness more than aroma or flavour. Not bad, but fairly middling in all respects - moderate carbonation, light-medium body. Some fruit, some graininess in the back, some apple and grapefruit. Fairly bitter. Maybe a bit lemony.
