Enjoyed a few GF West Coast IPAs this weekend at Dogwood Tavern in Falls Church, VA. On draft, pours a bright clear mid amber ( I would estimate 9SRM). Slightly off white head which laced nicely down the glass. Aroma was of Piney, Citrus, Floral. Not overly bitter but a big hop finish. I really found this beer to be quite good.

Poured pint at the brewery. San Diego west coast style IPA. Bottom line, if this is the style you like, you can't go wrong with this beer. All look, smell, taste notes are classic west coast IPA...fresh hop citrus, clean bitterness, overall delicious. Tough to decide between going to Green Flash and Iron Fist every time I visit San Diego.
