"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."

This IPA has most of my favorite hops. It has a nice basic IPA touch. Some nice floral notes, but very heavy malt character over the hops. Some tropical fruit notes. Very little if any pine or grapefruit. Drinkable IPA, but lacking that extra something to take it up. Love a lot of their IPA's, but their year round IPA lacks character.
