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.

Nice IPA...readily available..(even with being on the east coast in Virginia!!), refreshing to drink, crisp, overall very nice!! Pours frothy golden with a nice thick white head. Big hops, pleasantly bitter. As with most of their beers, nice job by Green Flash!!!
