Pours an amber color with low carbonation, head dissipating quickly. Abv on the bottle is 5.3%. Smell - very light to non-existent, sweet malt. Taste - medium bodied with hop bitterness. Bitterness in the finish. It is a refreshing ipa.

A: Very clear, orange and Amber colored. Medium head that fades away quickly.
S: Very grassy or leavy. I can describe it as the smell after rain. Slight citrus.
T: The taste begins with citrus, to rapidly taste the grass that you could smell. The after taste is really bitter.
F: It feels nice, a lot of flavours are blended together.
O: It was a very good IPA. Although not my favourite, I think it was a nice beer. The bitterness was quite strong in the aftertaste, which was very surprising.

Smell wasn't powerful as expected. Smooth IPA and easy drinkability. Dark orange amber. Taste is earthy with hints of citrus. Tastes of leaves and crispness.

Just got this and West Coast from Green Flash to compare, and all in all, this is a "light" version of West Coast, still great in scent and flavor but not as powerfull. Still worth it though
