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.

Truth in advertising. Massively hoppy. Pine resin nose. Broad flavor profile but the bitter citrus sits on top of it all. Definitely a west coast IPA. Recommend for beer geeks but may put off the uninitiated. A great beer.
