COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-blown “West Coast” IPA chocked full of sticky hop resins. Melrose is brewed with American 2-row malt and a touch of Canadian “honey” malt to accentuate the tropical and citrusy flavors of the Simcoe and Amarillo hops. This beer is generously dry hopped for an over-the-top aromatic experience.

Pour is a dark amber, transparent, with a foamy bubbly off white head. Nose has a fair bit of sticky malt, strong blast of orange citrus and fleshy mango, a bit sweet, lots of hop resins. Taste is less fruity, slightly high bitterness, light body, high carb. Flavors are subdued and a touch washed out, still some malt notes, light citrus, lots of resin and some left over sugars. Finish is a bit bready and more malts.

22oz. Bomber. Fresh from Beechwood. (Neat place). Amber gold with lacing. Big pine and grapefruit nose. Huge grapefruit and tangerine flavors, with a pink grapefruit like bitterness. Some malt support. The hops are out front and I love it. Burn in the finish.

Citrus taste, pronoun honey taste, very hoppy bitter, high floral notes...not on Pliny’s level but a solid IPA.

Explosion of tropical resign and pine meet your nose as you enjoy this sharp well layered and dry IPA. The malts build a light but strong foundation for the hops to shine, with a sharpness that finishes dry leaving you longing for another sip.

Pours a bit of an orangey yellow with a nice head and moderate retention. Nose is very piney, grassy and has some citrus notes in there. Starts a bit subtle and light with some grassy notes. It’s got a light mouth feel with medium carbonation. Finishes with a piney hop bite which is balanced out with some sweet citrus notes. It’s also a bit floral as well. Just a really solid IPA. Easy to drink and nice and flavorful.

bottle thanks to andrewcantsail. nose is weird, but in a good way. kind of tropical, fruity. not what I was expecting. fairly clear slightly hazy orange color with medium white head and excellent lacing. taste is very fruity, tropical and yummy, would never guess it was simcoe and Amarillo honestly. slightl sweetness to the malt. just dry enough without being sticky. the finish has some pithy bitterness and a touch of alcohol. pretty damn tasty

Bomber received from a trusty west-coast partner. Enjoyed at fridge temp in stemware. Appearance is on the golden-orange side with a minimal head that fades fast.Nose leans toward clementine / grapefruit with honey and a touch of cloves. Pine resin at the finish on taste but it’s a very juicy beer, west coast in the malt profile but really does a great job making a style of beer I don’t like very palatable. I don’t like most west coast IPAs this is an exception. Mouthfeel is pretty good as well.

Golden-orange colored body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Perfumy tropical fruits, citrus, pine, herbal notes and a kiss of floral honey. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, assertive bitterness, clean finish.

Damn delicious IPA. Golden hue with a foamy head and great lace. Nice texture. Rich malt base is bready and cracker-like. Wonderful hop profile. Very floral, earthy and green. Rounded and balanced amount of bitterness; grassy and resinous. Dryish finish. Nutty aftertaste.
