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.

It pours a clear dark golden orange color with an off white head. The aroma is very dank and spicy with some toasted malt. Hints of circus peanuts. The flavor has toasted malt, a little grapefruit and lots of dank. Clean on the palate. Pretty good.

22. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose sudsy off-white head. Big tangy nose. lots of caramel and pine and grapefruit and pineapple. Some butter. Creamy medium body with moderate carb. Darkly toasted caramel, pine, grapefruit, and pineapple mid palate, with a bit of butter showing. Take the butter away and this is a world-beater.

Draught at Beachwood Brewery BBQ, Long Beach, CA 24.4.16. 7.1% abv. Clear gold with a white head. Dry and delicate mango aroma, mango and candy taste that becomes dry and that’s a bit unbalanced. Light body, fruity, a little bitter finish.
