Notes / Commercial Description:
Beer Camp Across America West Coast Double IPA clocks in at 8.5% ABV and features five hop varieties, two of which went into Sierra Nevada’s “Hop Torpedo” dry-hopping device and impart hints of grapefruit and a floral note that recalls orange blossom. A light malt body and dry finish complement the bold hop profile.

Tastes more like a pilsner on steroids than a west coast IPA. I didnt see the label closely until after drinking the first one and was very surprised to see it labeled as an IIPA.

That being said its a DAMN good beer. Wish it was available year round. 5/5 easily.

Bottled on 6/20/14.

A - An aggressive pour into a tulip glass yields two fingers of frothy, egg-white foam. Thick lacing clings to the glass and a nice head hangs around from start to finish. Color is a clear, bright, deep, orange-ish gold.

S - Deep green aromas of earthy pine, dank pot, floral herbs, fresh-cut grass, and pungent citrus rind prevail. Musty in the best, most hop-forward way possible. That signature Sierra Nevada yeast and some biscuity malt balance the huge hope aromas. The 8.5% alcohol is mildly noticeable.

T - Massively bitter hop flavors blanket the palate, balanced by a sweet(ish) malt character that's quickly overtaken by a lastingly-bitter finish. Clean ale yeast. The alcohol presence is well-hidden. One of the most flavorfully bitter IPA's I've tasted.

M - Slightly creamy and medium in body. A bit oily and slick. Perfect carbonation.

O - Everything one could possibly want in an IPA. Absolutely brimming with fresh hop flavors and aromas.
