This was a ok IPA, I think they should remove the "west coast style" on the side of the bottle. This is nothing like a west coast IPA.

If im at a bar with the standard run of the mill selections, ill pick this over magic hat or goose anytime. Its a solid beer, not exciting, over the top, or amazing. But a good drink non the less.

For the amount of hop varieties they used to create their interpretation of a West Coast IPA, nothing stood out. Sam Adams does one thing consistent - no matter what style of beer they produce - it all shares a similar taste profile. Maybe I'm crazy. I've yet to drink any of their offerings and be blown away. If you're an IPA enthusiast who's been around the block more than once, don't expect to get anything remotely close out of this that compares to some of your favorites. Beyond mediocre and, quite comical, given Koch's cavalier attitude towards aggressively hopped beers. Anyone can do it? I disagree. I'd drink this over BMC, but that's not really saying anything, is it?
