Notes/Commercial Description:
"Drake's flagship beer! A "West Coast" interpretation of an India Pale Ale. Copper-colored from additions of light Crystal malt, and body-building Caramalt, carry the malt weight of this hop bomb. The hoppy aromas of pine and grapefruit are delivered from the abundant Columbus and Cascade hops."

Bottle poured into Speakeasy Ales and Lagers pint glass

A: Pours golden yellow with a healthy amount of off white head that laces nicely

S: Floral and citrus rind hop notes, maybe a little grassy, a little sweet malt in there, but mostly hop forward.

T: Nice hop bite up front, grapefruit and pine bitterness, a nice floral touch too. Just enough malt in the background to balance things. Alcohol is very well hidden.

M: medium body, moderate carbonation

O: Very hop forward West Coast style, lives up to its billing. Maybe not my favorite, but a very solid brew.
