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.

A - on tap at World of Beer, pours a nice light copper color with a 1 inch foam head.

S - smell is of west coast hops, particularly grapefruit and citrus.

T - taste is like the smell, awesome citrus and grapefruit flavors dominate here.

M - a good, medium body that fills the mouth nicely.

O - one of my old reliables...consistently one of the best IPA's out there.
