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."

Received from Fartindog in trade during Bif Race 07. Great looking beer right of the bat, reddish amber with a foamy white head that leaves a similar foam lacing. Not much of a nose, just some citrus. Taste is what I would expect in an English IPA, very well balanced but one thing that I couldn't get out of my mouth was the cocoa finish.

Serving type: bottle
