Notes: Our take on modern West Coast-Style IPA. Brewed with 100% Epiphany Pilsner malt for a light, crisp body. This batch is hopped with juicy Citra and Comet hops.

4.04/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate bright yellow + amber + burnt orange + pale golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a handful of small patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of 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 grassy + citrus/grapefruit pith + citrus/grapefruit zest + tropical/pineapple hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + bready + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + bready + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of grassy + citrus/grapefruit pith + citrus/grapefruit zest + tropical/pineapple hops which impart a slightly heavier than light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially crisp with a hint of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasant amount of lingering bitterness + crispness. Enjoyable and definitely a beer that I would grab again. Primarily a West Coast IPA with just a hint of NEIPA softness in the mouthfeel present.

Poured on tap at the brewery. Was a nice orange color but appearance was a little hazy for a west coast style IPA. Aroma was full of bright citrus and pine. Taste followed with hints of sweet bready malt. Well carbonated but I felt the body was just a bit thin. Finished nice and dry. Overall a solid IPA
