A: Pours a fantastic cloudy orange juice body. Thick luxurious head, 2 fingers width, perfect retention. The head sticks like a starbucks frappachino.

S: I'm from Vermont and this smells like New England beers. Stone fruit sweetness, mango, sweet oranges, fresh hawaiian rolls on the backend.

T: Stone fruit, mangos, kiwi, and sweet oranges,

M: Soft, pillowy, and creamy. Carbonation is playful on the tongue. Mild dryness on the backend. Aromas come back up on exhaling. ABV is just right.

O: This is down right perfect. It's one of the best NE IPAs I've had and it's shocking to me it's brewed on the West Coast and so easily obtainable.. This is on par with Julius, Hillfarm Steads IPAs, and Heady Topper. Ridiculously juicy and balanced. The ABV is just right as well. They very well could raise the ABV and this recipe would hide it extremely well. I will be stocking up on this!

Poured on-tap a hazy, light yellow under a quarter-inch thick white head which leaves 1 thin ring and spotty lace. Aromas of pineapple tropical fruits , floral. Flavor is juicy, dank and resiny. Medium body and light carbonation. Finishes soft and dry.

Drank from 16oz tulip glass. No date on the can.
Look: Dark yellow in color. Hazy, murky and cloudy complexity. About 2 fingers worth of frothy white head from a non-aggressive pour. Generous amounts of residual lacing on the glass.
Smell: Great amount of grapefruit, orange, pineapple, lemon, mango, papaya and passionfruit upfront. Some peach and apricot smell as well.
Taste: Follows the nose. Has a nice peachy pineapple flavor, with some green apple. grapefruit, orange, mango and papaya. Hop presence is somewhat earthy but very under toned.
Feel: Somewhat thick and heavy on the tongue, with low carbonation. The beer is soft and pillowy with a nice thick consistency.
Overall: I am very happy with this beer. It has a nice juicy and full character to it that makes it very inviting, plus its 6.5 abv which is nice for a change. Great job Brouwerij West! I am grateful to have tried this tasty brew. Cheers!

It pours very hazy and is unfiltered. It has lots of pine aroma with a clean finish. West coast IPA at its best. Happy to find this gem in Palo Alto.

A: Hoppy aromas of citrus and tropical fruit, coupled with a stone-fruit like expressive yeast.

A: Light gold color, opaque, with a rocky white head that had adequate retention. Lots of lacing in the glass.

T: Hop flavors of citrus and tropical fruit, with stone-fruit like notes, with a moderately light hop bitterness that finishes lightly dry.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, with a fluffy, juicy mouth-feel.

O: Awesome; the beer has a great citrus, tropical fruit, and stone fruit character, coupled with a super soft mouth-feel. Definitely easy to drink.
