Wow. I'm at a loss right now. So unexpected. West Coast is the same colour as Schneider Weisse Hopfen-Weisse, which I think is amazing for an American IPA. Deep burnt orange. Quite cloudy. The head dissipates quickly but leaves nice lacing. Beautiful.
The smell is exactly what you'd expect from a beer with Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial and Cascade hops - fruity, citrus, piney, floral all at once. Not much else can sneak by that barrage.
The taste is surprising well-balanced considering how insanely hoppy the finish is. Nice sweetness up-front, but not even close to the bitter that follows. The pine and citrus dominate.
Medium-bodied, with a dry finish and a perfect amount of carbonation.
Overall, this beer is ridiculously good. I WILL be picking this up again.
