A good looking beer. Pale amber with a billowing white head and lots lace. A sweet malty nose it's quickly followed by pine and a welcome light yeast ester fruitiness. Tongue dances with malt. Caramel and toasted grains. Then the hops combination swoops in like a tropical wind. Pine, citrus, hop oil. Lots. Still a smooth holy hoppy ale. Tropical fruit and firm bitterness. Crisp, long, oily finish. Clean hop oil linger. Velvety feel. Microfine carbonation. Quenching swallow. While the label proclaims this a west coast IPA think of it as a smooth big, hop oily rest cost style nod Rio the west. Highly drinkable and refreshing. I like this one a lot.

From notes on 2/4/14

Very light yellow color. Similar to a general lager. Love the aroma. Nice earthy hop smell. Some pine in the smell too. Taste pretty darn good too. I like the earthy resin flavor from the hops in this one. I also think it’s plenty bitter. I like those super hop bombs, so I’m happy I found one I like with less IBUs.

Not sure why the label is touting this as "West Coast style." I found this to be much mellower; not bad, just not similar to more intense west-coast representatives.
