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.

Was looking forward to this beer from Green Flash. Overall, not that impressed. Purchased in a 4 pack and tasted over two nights to give it a couple chances. Appearance was cloudy and smell was just ok. Was expecting a little more as Green Flash typically delivers. A little too bitter for me.

Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a slight red cast. Very strong head with exceptional lacing. The nose is a blend of hops - grapefruit and other citrus over a light pine resin overlaying a subtle malt sweetness. The body is almost medium with a nice smooth texture. Normal carbonation level. The outstanding flavor profile is complex and well balanced. Like the nose, grapefruit and other citrus lead with an earthy pine in the background. A biscuit malt sweetness appears in the middle, which rapidly flows into a quite nice tart bitterness. The finish is smooth and a nice tartness lingers. A bit more carbonation effervescence would accentuate the flavor of the finish and the underlying hop resin.
