        India Pale Ale (IPA) is one of the most popular and diverse beer styles in the world. English, American, Double, Imperial, Triple, Dry-Hopped, Fresh-Hopped, Wet-Hopped, Cryo-Hopped, Black, Sour, Brett, New England, Hazy, Juicy, Milkshake, Brut, Cold, and everything in between. On BeerAdvocate alone, we currently list over 116,000 active beers within the greater IPA category, with the hazy variety seemingly dominating the overall category and beer scene for many years.

        But there’s one IPA that rises above the sea of hazy offerings, bringing clarity to all who seek it. West Coast IPA! As in the style, not just an IPA brewed by a west coast brewery, and one that’s arguably been around for decades. We’re talking a clear, bright, golden beer (never hazy or muddy looking) that kicks you in the palate with fruity (pineapple, grapefruit, berries), citrusy (like tangerine), piney (literally, a pinecone in your mouth), and dank (pungent, resiny, herbal) hop flavors, often pulls you back in with an often aggressive bitterness, and welcomes you to the westside with a slightly higher alcohol content than other non-Imperial IPAs (typically around 7 percent).

        Join me as we celebrate the West Coast IPA with a box of twelve delivered to your door!

        As always, thanks for your support and Respect Beer!

        THE BEERS

        For this box we reached out to a bunch of our friends on the west coast, as well as a handful from Illinois and New York, to help us pay tribute to the West Coast IPA. Again, you won’t find any hazy beers in this box, only clean, fruity, and bitter beers that pack a punch.

        Beachwood Brewing | Huntington Beach, CA
        Eyes to the Sky
        7.1% abv | 16 oz. can
        Look up as this meteoric West Coast IPA showers your palate with celestial aromas from Strata, Simcoe, & Columbus hops!

        Breakside Brewery | Portland, OR
        West Coast Best Coast
        7.1% abv | 16 oz. can
        West Coast, Best Coast is loaded entirely with the ‘new trinity’ of aroma hops: Citra, Mosaic, and Strata, as well as a dash of Nelson Sauvin in the dry hop. The aroma is rife with berry, bright citrus, tropical fruit, and resin.

        El Segundo Brewing | El Segundo, CA
        Come Original IPA
        7% abv | 16 oz. can
        This beer is in collaboration with the band 311. It is bright, flavorful, and delicious. This dark straw colored beer is brilliantly clear with impressive white foam and lacing. The flavors are tropical driven with notes of mango and lychee. Candy like attributes such as strawberry fruit rollup and Smartees are all mixed up. Moderate bitterness balances the sweeter fruit characteristics, and the beer finishes clean and dry with a subtle white bread nuance. Hops – Simcoe, Mosaic, Chinook. Malt – Weyermann Pilsner, Rahr 2-Row, Flaked Wheat. Allergens: Wheat

        Evil Twin Brewing NYC | Queens, New York, NY
        Our Second Most Popular IPA
        6.5% abv | 16 oz. can
        Crisp and crushable West Coast IPA brewed with Columbus, Citra and Simcoe Hops. Allergens: Wheat

        Ghost Town Brewing | Oakland, CA
        6.8% abv | 16 oz. can
        The ancient plague passes over us yet again with bitterness anew. Locust is a 6.8% West Coast IPA made with Citra + Mosaic + Ekuanot. There is no sun, no sky, no tomorrow when you are consumed by Locusts' thick, dizzying swarm; legs of tickling papaya tails slap of lime run amok and short horns shoot notes of pine across the senses. Millions of buzzing wings blow a clean finish across the palate; Locust leaves a desolate landscape across the earth.

        Highland Park Brewery | Los Angeles, CA
        Hello, LA
        6.8% abv | 16 oz. can
        West Coast IPA brewed with Citra & Mosaic hops. Our flagship west coast IPA with two of our favorite hops. A clear beer producing aromas of ripe clementine, mixed berries, & passion fruit. Our ode to the city of Los Angeles!

        Hop Butcher For The World | Chicago, IL
        Sap Moss
        8% abv | 16 oz. can
        Citra, Simcoe & Chinook-hopped West Coast Double IPA

        Moonlight Brewing Co. | Santa Rosa, CA
        Bombay by Boat IPA
        6.2% abv | 16 oz. can
        A classic West Coast IPA focused on balance and drinkability. Let this blend of hops and malt transport you to a time when IPAs were deep, dank and clear. A resinous palette without being sticky, malty depth without being sweet.

        Phase Three Brewing Company | Lake Zurich, IL
        Vivid Light      
        6.25 abv | 16 oz. can
        Vivid Light is a West Coast IPA showcasing a blend of five classic hops to throw off notes of dank weed, sticky pine, and zesty citrus. This juice is bitter, dry, and lovingly familiar. 

        Pizza Port Brewing Company | Carlsbad, CA
        6.8% abv | 16 oz. can
        Named for a famous local surfbreak, Swami's IPA has been a Pizza Port staple for over 20 years. With a more traditional hop profile of Centennial, Cascade, CTZ, Chinook, Citra and Simcoe, this beer is the quintessential example of a West Coast style IPA as it showcases minimal malt character and the fresh bitterness of citrus and pine.

        Radiant Beer Co. | Anaheim, CA
        Part of the Light
        7% abv | 16 oz. can
        Part of the Light is a modern take on the West Coast IPA.  A light malt base, featuring a touch of wheat & Vienna malts, provides the platform for Mosaic, Simcoe, Motueka & Cashmere hops to shine.  Lower in bitterness than westies of yore with a clean, dry finish, late addition & dry-hopping produces bright notes of lime & grapefruit zest, honeydew melon & strawberry. Allergens: Wheat

        Wayward Lane Brewing | Schoharie, NY
        6.8% abv | 16 oz. can
        This iteration was blasted on the hot side with mountains of El Dorado and Chinook, then dosed with a hefty addition of Mosaic Incognito. After a neutral fermentation, the well attenuated base was dry hopped at immense rates with Mosaic, El Dorado, El Dorado Cryo and Talus Cryo. Piles of ripe blueberry, bright pink grapefruit juice, and watermelon sorbet, all layered onto a lush and piney backbone with a pronounced yet inviting bitterness.
