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

Appearance: Pours cloudy copper with a four finger foamy head that dissipates solwly leaving abundant lacing.
Smell: From the bottle I find the aroma to be orange and pineapple. From the glass pine needle is detected.
Taste: Bitter forward in a good way. Citrusy, pine needles, grapefruitFinish is long and remains hop forward. It seems to me the malt present keeps the hops under control, but have no fear, no sweetness here
Feel: Overall, good lingering feel, smoothness

Highly recommended. High qualiity brew with year round availability.

A good, bitter DIPA. Most DIPAs this bitter seem to be so rich it's hard to enjoy more than 2. This goes down easy. I'll buy it again, for sure.
