Notes: Our West Coast IPA hits you with a ton of juicy hop flavor that shines out from a substantial and complex malt backbone. We use Citra, Amarillo, Centennial, Warrior, and Chinook in 10 separate additions to provide the intense hop blast found within this can!

On tap in a tulip glass.

See through copper color with a nitro-like foamy cap, about 1f. Double wide fat rings of lacing.

Malty, slightly dank and piney, citrus, and fruity gum.

Blast of grapefruit. Solid caramel malt underneath. Pine and lemon.

Strong medium body. Lots of hop bitterness. Dry biscuit malt present in the finish among the hop bitterness. Fresh as can be.

Quite bitter for a west coast IPA, and that’s alright with me. Good drinking brew.

Look - pint can (canned on 8/31/22), poured into an IPA tasting glass. Golden in color, clear, with a one-finger head and little to moderate lacing.

Smell - a mixture of floral and citrus aroma. malt presence detectable. overall very pleasant on the nose, almost a bit surprisingly so given how simple it is.

Taste - the hop bitterness hits the tongue aggressively, but the malt backbone has a strong presence, which quickly balances some of the bitter notes. floral and citrus notes can both come through in the taste. finish is clean and lightly sweet, similar to some of the best representations of the style.

Feel - medium bodied, average carbonation, and relatively potent at 7.2% in a pint can.

Overall - this is an exemplary interpretation of a classic old-school WIPA, and one of the best I've had of the style in a while. A great throwback to a beloved style.

From a 16oz can dated 7/18/22 into a pint glass.

Pours a golden orange with about one and a half fingers of off-white head. Excellent retention and pretty decent lacing.

Smell is somewhat faint and a little one dimensional-light pine and a touch of citrus juice. not terrible but not as strong as I was expecting.

Tastes like a decent WCIPA. Piney bitterness up front with sweet dryness on the back end.

Sticky mouthfeel. Dry bitter aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation.

Great representation of the WCIPA style. Pleasure to drink.

06/14/22 stamped on bottom of can. Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Slightly hazy gold with 1-finger frothy off-white head with ample lacing.

S: Aroma is a bit light with grapefruit, orange, lemon, and pine hop notes and a distinct medium caramel malt note. Clean with no esters.

T: Flavor is old school WCIPA from 2008 with mild light-medium caramel malt note followed by a barrage of pine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, and orange citrus notes with some herbal honeysuckle type character in the end-palate and aftertaste. Very sturdy malt backbone overall. Again, like the aroma, it’s clean with no detectable yeast character. Bitterness is high.

M: Very smooth and drinkable with medium body, moderate carbonation, and dry finish (but some of that caramel malt tackiness detracts from the dryness in the finish.

O: Hop, Drop, ‘n Roll from NoDa is an old school WCIPA with a mild caramel note that doesn’t belong as much in today’s IPA game, but plenty of wonderful hoppy flavors and high bitterness that takes you back a few years.

Pours a rich gold with nice head. Smells of fruit and herbal hops. The taste is bitter, the fruits start to shine as it warms, guessing at grapefruit, orange and maybe pineapple. It’s dry, piney, and some malt to rein it in a little. This is a West Coast IPA as intended and a little out of balance and harsh in some places but it gets better as it warms and is a good representation of the style, cheers!

Hits the style very nicely. Citrus aroma and flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Gifted from my brother after a recent visit to the area. Poured into glass from a 16 oz can.

Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden copper color with a dense white head that provides maximum lacing. An absolutely gorgeous WCIPA.

The nose features resiny pine, ripe orange, and a biscuity malt note that literally has me salivating. The pine is very bitter, but complemented perfectly by the orange flavor and the biscuity malt. The mouthfeel is medium and drying, on point for the style.

I sought this for quite a while, glad I finally got to try it. It is more than worthy of all the beer nerd love it receives. Exceptionally well done.

Pours a clear medium golden straw color, huge foamy white head that lasts a long time. Aroma is citrusy with a little bitter pine. Flavor: definitely a west coast ipa. Citrusy hops give way to waves of bitterness. Lots of bitterness. Semi sweet, malt allows the hops so shine. Fairly oily and slick, good carbonation. Overall, I rent to gravitate to hazy, east coast IPA’s, but this is a good one.

Lightly hazed copper with two fingers of creamy-looking, antique-white head. Good retention and thick, webbed lacing.

Peppery pine, gym socks, some earthy dankness and a hint of orange sweetness in the nose.

Great balance with bracing bitterness, pepperiness and a solid malt backbone. Very bitter finish, just like the good ole days.

Medium bodied with a nice burst of carbonation.

Two months past the canning date and this is still excellent. Definitely a bitter bomb.
