@ Oude Magoon's Saloon, Somerville MA

Attractive looking beer: orange with a tight white head. Consistent retention and splashy lace from first sip to last. Came in a Green Flash pint glass and I'm a sucker for appropriate glassware.

Smells mighty fine. Grapefruit, pineapple and tropical hops with a sugary base.

Candied grapefruit and pine with a pleasant, lightly toasted backbone.
Not as flavorful as the aroma would indicate. There's plenty of cutting bitterness in there but the flavors fall short of expectation.

Long lasting flavor. I'm a slow sipper and I appreciate IPAs that taste the same from start to finish. Few do but GFWCIPA is one of them.

It is what is says it is: West Coast IPA. One of the standards of that subgenre IMO.
