Finishing my Cabin weekend with a solid West Coaster. Lots of fruit but balanced with bitterness. Great aroma too.

There is an awesome spicy quality to the hops on the nose and palate, peppery and vegetal more than fruity, with a hearty pale malt backbone that adds a touch of honey sweetness before ending with firm assertive pithy bitterness. Very nice
Wasn't expecting the 7.5% when I grabbed a west coast IPA. I typically stay away from higher ABV beers out of preference. This one is not too bad and worth the occasional exception.Earned the GIVING (2020) badge! Earned the Cheers To You! (Level 4) badge!
