Indica, which catches sh!t from the Hindus for their portrayal of Ghanese, shouldn't change it (even though I obviously don't think their caricature of the Hindu God had the intention to offend) . Controversy is attractive, thus making this beer a bit more memorable. The beer itself falls into the broad realm of good but not awesome American IPA's, so keep what you've got going Lost Coast.

This one definitely has the fruity citrus aroma. Pineapple and orange lead the hop parade, with just a bit of mint and pine. The overall hop intensity doesn't seem too high, just very sweet and juicy.

The flavor carries a bit more spiciness and bitter hop bill than the nose. It is a bit more well-balanced than most, pale ale seems a bit more appropriate. Nonetheless the flavor is very enjoyable. More sweet, less bitter, toasty, and crisp is the verdict.

The body has a good sticky feel with very crisp carbonation. A hophead could be held over by this one, but not completely satisfied. It is a remarkably easy beer to drink nonetheless, and I would buy a sixer of it for that reason alone. It would also make a great entry level IPA to someone a bit gun shy.
