Notes/Commercial Description:
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermentor for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

65 IBU

Sampled from a can bought at Bierkraft in Brooklyn.

Golden and clear with a nice white head. Aroma is a wonderful mix of floral and citrusy hops. It's delicate and gentle but quite assertive. The flavor follows closely. It's all about effective hop flavors. A creamy, smooth texture with a nice low carbonation.

Fantastic stuff leading the way for the beer scene in SC!

The beer comes in a clear deep amber orange with big 2-3 finger foamy head.

The aroma is fantastic. It’s super juicy orange, with mango, apricot, a bit of grapefruit, nectarine, peach. There’s a bit of caramel malt sweetness in the aroma as well.

The front just hits you with a good amount of tropical blast of hops. It’s of juicy peach, orange, mango, nectarine. There’s a gentle sweetness, without a big body, that matches with that. It then rolls into a good bitterness with grapefruit peel and floral drying.

This is a well crafted hoppy IPA. It’s light drinking with tons of hop aroma and flavor. Westbrook continues to impress me.
