Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is a true West Coast IPA–it is pale in color, with with bracing bitterness, high alcohol content (about 7.4% abv) and a fruity/floral/citrus hop aroma. It is made from a simple malt bill: North American base and pale caramel malt. We use copious amounts of Northwest hops (Summit, Columbus, Magnum and Zythos) all throughout the boil, with most of it going in within the last 15 minutes. After fermentation is complete, we dry hop it with approximately 1 boatload of each of the same hop varieties.

This is an amazing IPA. Wonderful smell, hops, a bit of pine but mostly just fresh hops. Taste is just awesome. Clean, fresh hops, not much malt which makes sense since this is their take on the West Coast IPA, which is my favorite style. I put this up there with the Cali big boys. My personal fav is Green Flash West Coast IPA but this is very, very close behind. You have to try it if you like the style, you will not be disappointed. Cheers!

not familiar with Dragoon Brewing before tonight (even thought it's from Tucson, AZ), this was served as part of a tasting flight at Whole Foods in a 4 oz. tasting glass...

tonight, I am compaing it with some other IPA's on tap at Whole Foods: Four Peaks Hop Knot IPA, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Mother Road Lost Highway Black IPA, and the standard for double IPA's Dogfish Head 90. I will also pour a Stone IPA from a bottle before the evening is over...

color and appearance are a medium honey yellow with a head that settles down to a thin lacey cap

smell is nice, Dragoon uses a single pale caramel malt and hops from the northwest US

taste is similarly balanced, malt and hops do not overwhelm each other, but complement and result in a very pleasant mouthfeel... very easy to drink with a pleasant aftertaste

In my search for the perfect IPA, this one is definitely in the top 20.
