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.

Color- light gold slightly hazy. Full head.

Aroma- very hoppy like grapefruit rind with hints of lemon and honey.

Taste- this is a big IPA but super smooth and balanced. Starts hoppy but mellows in the middle with some sweetness. Finishes long and hoppy but crisp at the same time. A great imperial IPA. 95 IBUs.
