Notes / Commercial Description:
From Civil War scrawls on the walls of Graffiti House to illicit aerosol artistry we all endeavor to leave our mark. Our Graffiti House West Coast IPA asserts its presence with a potent aroma of passion fruit, mango, guava, and citrus. The bold and juicy tropical body is a unique signature of the Mosaic hops, while Cascade hops contribute to a clean citrus finish for a flavor so singular it leaves its own indelible impression.

This beer was pricey and didn't deliver. Maybe I'm growing bored of the oversaturated IPA market, this beer did nothing for me.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an dark amber color and a hazy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount time. Pretty good lacing.

S: A serviceable aroma of hops, tropical fruit, malt, and citrus.

T: Tasted of a fair amount of tropical fruit notes (mango, passion fruit), some citrus fruit (orange), a good shot of hops, a grassy quality, and some malt as well. A solid enough flavor, but it doesn't quite come together. Some parts of it are good (the hops and fruit), but the grassy quality and malt are a little excessive.

F: A well carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A slightly uneven IPA, but it has its faults. Worth a look.

On draft at coyote grill in fairfax, va. Dark amber color with long lasting off white head. Smell is citrus hops but with sweet, biscuity malts. Taste is strong on the hops but overly offset by the sweet malt on the backend. Def taste the abv in this one. Heavy mouthfeel.

Golden amber look. Crisp light taste with pine finish. Decent west coast style IPA.

I tried this at the Brick Anchor Pub in Norfolk with my boss. It poured a slightly clear orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had hints of pine and citrus. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

From the bottle, it pours amber with a nice, fluffy head, replenished with a steady stream of bubbles. Nice. Lacing as you enjoy it. A bit of hops in the nose and mouth. Yum!
