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."

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a light copper color with an off white head thin lacing is present and a fresh cap thru-out
S- more malt then hops faint crisp pine and some citrus aromas a little cracker meal smell
T- light but nice hops first of pine followed by some grapefruit and melon again malts fight thru and win the battle here
M-smooth and mellow on the hops but they are there medium carbonation
O- tasty IPA which leans more on the malty than hoppy side still i liked this one
