Notes: Inspired by the Three Weavers community, our West Coast IPA is bright and laden with notes of tropical fruits. Brewed with two-row barley, a touch of English crystal malt and loaded with new age American hops. Expatriate is home no matter where you are.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
can dated 4/22/21; today is 6/6

pours a clear yellow gold body with slightly off-white rocky froth head that has moderate retention and leaves copious amounts of thin patchy sudsy lacing behind as it settles

aroma is floral lemon with a caramel bready malt backer; it's grassy, clean, and near-floral in the front end hop zone, with a faint pine backer

taste follows that up with a double down in the lemon, pin3 and caramel bready malt

mouthfeel is medium-light bodied and high carbonation, running crisp and grassy and finishing dry and leaving a citrus/grassy aftertaste

overall:
it's floral and lemon and malt forward with a pine and hoppy afterward. it's pretty unique but familiar as hell.

Pours only slightly cloudy bright yellow with a long lasting white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is faint. Light lemon. Flavor is rather blah, not that it's bad, just not a lot of punch to it. Feel is also just so so, light bodied without much carbonation. Overall not sure how it's score is as high as it is. Not one I'll look for.

Poured from the 12oz can into a large mug.

A: The beer is a clear orange color with hints of gold. Head poured pretty large, foamy, and there is tons of lacing all the way down the glass.

S: Clean, almost soapy smell with lots of floral hops and orange peel. Tangerine. Pineapple.

T: Pretty nice balance throughout. Nice bready and biscuity malt backbone over a solid hop profile of citrus peel and some pine. More typical in the mouth without many of the interesting fruit notes in the nose. Still, a nice balance of flavors.

Overall: A solid IPA - balanced and drinkable. I'd get this again for sure.

12 oz can with a 26 August 2020 canning date stamped on the bottom.
This is a lightly hazy, amber colored ale with a decent white head. It has a fruity aroma featuring tropical fruit notes with a touch of baked bread. The flavor follows but with more subdued tropical fruits and a more herbal nature than the aroma suggests.
Mouthfeel. Medium body with lively medium+ carbonation.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a nice dense head and decent lacing.
Aroma not very strong but some maltiness and pine notes.
Taste is average, I was hoping for more. It has some taste, just not enough.
Mouthfeel is clean.
I expected more of this beer.
I would rate is as just a bit better than average.

Great looking, pale yellow with a huge head and sticky lace.

Fruity notes with mild hop bitterness and a nice aftertaste.

Overall it's pretty easy drinking and goes down nice.

This came in a variety pack of IPAs at my local grocer ... I'm drinking this 90 plus days after production and I'm wondering, given the favorable reviews here, if my selection is a bit skunked or had been overheated ... Disappointed

Hazy and lightly hopped, with a light hop aroma. The sip is similar, with a somewhat creamy character. A rare miss from three weavers in my experience.

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a medium frothy head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is some malt, a little fruit and big piney hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with some light fruit and a big piney bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a decent piney IPA.

Gold in color with a half inch of creamy and densely packed eggshell white on top. Moderate lacing. The aroma is of floral and grassy hops. As advertised is the nose, I’m tasting fresh floral to lightly grassy hops. The mouth is crisp, lightly chalky and dry.

Can. Pours slightly hazy. You can pretty much see fully through it but it is not clear. Nice crown of frothy lace ridges. Solid aroma. A nice interplay between hops and malt in the smell. Pineapple, mango, melon, and greener/grass hops. Sugar cookie malt scent. Flavor has a strong, grassy flavor off the bat. Sharp hoppiness. Then the other, fruitier hops set in. Definitely a pineapple and mango continuation here. Malt flavor has a crystal malt sugary-ness to it. It compliments the flavors of the hops but also can linger on the palate for too long. Even though the flavor is rather aggressive off the bat, after a few sips, you start to acclimate and it begins to go down very easy. Bitterness is medium. I think the reason why this drinks so easy is that the ABV is pretty well hidden. It sneaks up on the back of the tongue after about half a beer but by then you have already begun to feel pretty good. Overall a decent beer. Was a part of a mix pack with all the CANarchy mixed pack. I bet this one will stack up favorably to the rest.
