12oz. bottle

Pours a clear amber color with a creamy eggshell head that thins. Thick lacing on the glass.

Aroma is a pure hops explosion - bursting with citrus, pine, and a slight grassiness.

Big hop flavor upfront, dominated by citrusy hop flavors with pine and some grassiness. It actually gives way to a bit of caramel malt, and a rather strict bitterness before being swept out the door with more hops.

Medium body, zippy carbonation.

West coast IPA indeed, no mistake in the name of this beer. A very good example of this style done in true west coast fashion - the hops are balls to the wall. Hopheads should seek this one out.
