akasha hopsmith ipa
This brewer uses three-hop types, Amarillo, Simcoe and Centennial. To make this triple dry-hopped West Coast-style India Pale Ale.
 
Even with all that triple dry hopping, I enjoyed this beer for its easy-drinking IPA style, which was just right, in the way it was not overpowering or over the top.
 
Just easy drinking with a suggestion of citrus fruit and pine with a refreshing dry bitterness on the finish.
 
For me a bit more of a session beer than some of the bigger IPA’s I have been drinking of late.
 
What is a West Coast-style IPA you ask?
 
West Coast IPAs are traditionally known for their bold hop aroma and strong bitterness backed up with a good whiff of citrus and pine.
