Notes: Collaboration with Green Cheek Brew Co.

This is freaking dumb. Don't be such a dork. This is why I never take you anywhere. Whatever. You're so ancient. Go hang out with your loser friends at Green Cheek Beer Co., I'm going skating. A denigration of classic West Coast resin. Made with Incognito and Cryo in the whirlpool. Double dry-hopped with hand-selected Mosaic, Nelson, and El Dorado, and a helping of Mosaic and El Dorado Cryo.

A: Pours a slightly hazy medium to dark golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate burnt orange + peach + medium yellow + amber colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy light beige head that reduces to a handful of small to medium sized patches of thin film surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of resinous pine + tropical/papaya + tropical/mango + vinous/white wine hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of toasted + caramel + biscuit + pale malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of toasted + caramel + biscuit + pale malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of resinous pine + tropical/papaya + tropical/mango + vinous/white wine hops which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which slowly fades away leaving lingering light tropical + white wine hop flavors.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable but lacks the aggressive bitterness I associate with an old school West Coast IPA - I really enjoyed the aromas + flavors but wanted more aggressive and more overall bitterness.

Picked up a single from the Blue Door Bottleshop 6-28-21 for $5.50. Canned 6-15-21; consumed 7-28-21.

Beer poured golden-orange with a nice white head with the original pour.

Nose is very nice, citrus and tropical fruits are very pungent.

Taste is really well done. Moderate pale malt base takes on a medley of hops that provide a fruit bowl of flavors including orange, tangerine, peach, and gooseberry. Finishes with a nice rind bitterness in the west coast fashion; 7/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is more medium than light but it is refreshing.

Overall totally dig this WCIPA! Get it while it is still around if you like this style!

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a one finger head that retains well and leaves a splattering of lace

Smell: Piney aromatics combined with tropical fruit and vinous tones

Taste: Papaya, berry and melon flavors forward with a white wine grape element developing; resinous piney elements build, in the middle, though the bitterness is restrained for a West Coast style

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A pleasant West Coast IPA but not quite the hop bomb I was expecting
