a lighter color west coast ipa with a prominent but temporary white foam head. the nose is a bomb, major high alpha here, sticky and dank as hell, but with a lighter malt body to really let the hops stand out. the alcohol is there in the taste, but it seems to work well with the intensely bitter hops. there is a cut grass summery freshness to it that's really appealing here as the weather warms. long long finish challenging the tongue. its sticky in feel, but absolutely pint worthy. mellow carbonation is just fine because the body is super light for the style. there is very little weight to this, nothing to bog it down. possibly a good double ipa for the newcomer to the style, its a little bit more approachable than a lot of these, but with all the flavors you expect. one of my favorites from backcountry, too bad they didn't have any bottled up to go. a fine offering this spring.

22oz bottle $8.49. Orange color, great head. Lots of lacing. Aromas if tropical fruit, pine, lots of hops here. Flavor is more of the same, loads of tropical fruit and pine, some melon too. This wasn't a west coast per se but it might be, maybe. This was good enough that I went back for a second bottle.
