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.

Tap at Beachwood; could see the quality, but not quite my style. Aroma of fruit, slightly sour, with a varied hop profile. Alot of grapefruit and citrus in the flavor.

Bomber, thanks RD. bottled 4/19. Big juicy dank hops. Citrus and pine. Medium bitterness with a hint of sweetness. Very well balanced and incredibly drinkable. Cant ask for much more out of a single IPA.

bytemesis (6030) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy golden, medium off-white head, dissipates with great residual and lacing. Aroma is light, perfumy, citrus, grapefruit, passionfruit, mango, pine resin. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, a hint of harshness. Lightish body. This is the kind of IPA that would have blown me away 5 years ago. Now, its just nice.

Bottle thanks to Jen! Pours a cloudy yellow with medium frothy white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong floral hop, grapefruit, mango. Medium mouth, juicy tropical fruit, light bitterness, really glad to get to try this so fresh!

bartlebier (3196) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2015
66cl fresh from sourcedly share by oldmanriver, thanksgivingyou very much. - Squeezed-hop juice fresher than fresh pine resins and grapefruit pith in aroma, laying down the law of expectations for the taste: a one-track minded, one-trick pony of hop engineering, with all wafer-thin biscuit malts thinned out and brewed to the background to make the hops shine. A masterpiece of monothematic dedication to West Coast blank hoppiness (mainly citrus and pinewood resins and juices) if there ever was one, a true precise palate cleaner for a glass, palate ruiner, for a bomber. Like an upscale Asian dish, infused with Thai basil and lemongrass, straight and to the point, no beating around the bush.

bomber, great IPA. tons of citrus, grapefruit and moderate-moderate light malt sweetness, moderate-moderate light bitterness at the finish, well made.

rlgk (16562) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2015
Draught at Beachwood BBQ, Long Beach California. Clear golden beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Hoppy pine and citrus aroma, grapes, peach, mango, pine apples, herbal notes, some caramel and orange zest. Hoppy pine and mango flavor, quite bitter, orange zest, peach, pine apples, some lemon juice. Full bodied with a distinct pine and mango finish. Superb IPA.

robinvboyer (3886) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
Cask days 2015. Straight forward west coast ipa. Huge notes of citrus, pine and fresh hop comes. Medium to high bitterness, a real palette thrasher. Good stuff.

MarcoDL (3634) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2015
Draft at Beachwood. Aroma of caramel, pine and peach. Taste of pine, citrus, mild caramel and dry grass. Good IPA, but a little less harsh pine would have made it great.
