3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head.
S: An intense hop aroma to this one. Lots of citrus hops and perhaps even more pine. A strong herbal hop aroma, too, with lots of grapefruit peel. Just a touch of grass, a little bit of malt on the back end.
T: Intense resinous and oily pine flavors. Decently bitter without being overly so. Citrus peel and grapefruit hop flavors and a light herbal note. Slight malt sweetness in there somewhere.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: Another solid hoppy beer from Julian/Beachwood. Good stuff.

Light orange pour. Whitish head. Julian strikes again! Grapefruit peel, tropical fruit, caramel sweetness in the nose. Flavor is an insane blend of citrus hops, resin, caramel and light bready notes. YES!

Flavors are very fruity, dank, citrus, grassy. Fresh and awesome. Grapefruit and light tropical fruit edges. Very nicely bitter balance without being overbearing in the slightest. Lively bubbles, dry, with a very light caramel character. Really good!
