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.

22 oz bomber, no bottled-on date, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a slightly hazy copper orange color, produces a finger of off-white head that leaves thick rings of lacing.

S- Some citric, resinous hops, a bit of malt sweetness.

T- Citric and piney hops provide a solid layer of bitterness with a bit of herbal spice, malt sweetness provides a bit of caramel flavor.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel with moderate carbonation.

O- A good IPA, the hop character is very bitter but not that complicated, this is a nice beer but nothing spectacular.
