Notes / Commercial Description:
As craft beer pioneers, we embarked on an expedition to brew the benchmark West Coast IPA. We ventured into the unknown and struck gold, discovering a tantalizing menagerie of hops. Simcoe for tropical and grapefruit zest, Columbus for hop pungency, Centennial for pine notes, Citra for citrus zest and Cascade for floral aroma are layered throughout the brewing process. West Coast IPA® exemplifies the Green Flash spirit of adventure and discovery.

Great stuff. Hot day in SD and I wanted something refreshing. This hits the spot. One of the best-looking beers I've seen in a while. Crystal clear bronze color, glassy. Great mouthfeel and refreshing apple/grapefruit taste. Not a hop bomb (thank god). Smell is a bit weak, but that's OK.
