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: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A local brew that did nobody wrong. My wallet likes it too.

A: great lacing and very golden brown

T: Definitely doughy and malty with of course hoppiness. This is my compromise bt IPA and malt forward beer. A great IPA for a weekend night.

M: Excellent carbonation and flavor. Again, solid lacing.

O: Not your Mercedes Benz of IPAs but a solid go getter. Perhaps Subaru or Toyota?
I love to support local breweries and their quality efforts. Yes, still kind to my wallet as well.
