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.

22 oz bomber, bottled on 1/27, orangish hue with two finger head and great lacing, smells of sticky piney hops, orange rind, touch of mango, flavor of sticky pine and citrus, prickly carbonation on the tongue and finishes with tastes of tropical fruit and a dry, smooth yet bitter finish, a really well done west coast IPA that meets the hype

Clownoisseur (344) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Pour is a honey color, fairly transparent, one finger white head. Aroma of sweet cereal, notes of light citrus, apple juice and hints of pine. Taste is initially sweet upfront with the malt bill in the foreground followed by an assertive bitterness. Some hints of citrus zest, but pretty abrupt otherwise. Sticky mouthfeel is coupled with high carbonation.

cpetrone84 (1605) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2014
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.

Oldmanriver (58) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
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.

JerseyHophead (21) - California, USA - JUL 3, 2014
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.
