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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass, pours a copper amber color with a fluffy very light tan head that lingers leaving good lacing, hazy

S: pungent grapefruit peel and piney hops, lemon and orange zest, fresh floral smells, malt sweetness

T: intense bitter flavor up front primarily grapefruit peel, just enough malt to balance, finish is astringent pine resin

M: full bodied with good carbonation and a lingering aftertaste

O: a very good IPA, floral fragrance is the best part, it is intensely bitter, hop lovers only please
