I'm smelling a lot of hops! Not a fruity type of hops, but more towards floral and pine.
Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:04:09 +0000
Tastes hoppy but not of the fruity variety. Very nice good ol fashioned West Coast IPA piney hop bitter that lingers into the aftertaste!
Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:07:25 +0000
Typical West Coast IPA dry finish! No hint of the 9.5%. Medium mouthfeel.
Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:08:55 +0000
Antipodal to the New England IPA. Does what it says, wrecked my palate, in that after this, I didn't feel like having another bitter IPA.
Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:15:33 +0000
Nostalgic of the good ol' West Coast IPA days. Brought a grin on my face, but rating it 3.75 out of 5 because I can't drink too much of this
