3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: My first Beachwood bottle - A Cali/trade extra - so here goes: It pours clear golden with a modest white head into this glass - theres some light spotting presence here, for what that’s worth. It retains... fairly poorly honestly. I enjoyed the aroma - theres nice tropical / citrus and hop dank here. The flavor profile, however, falls a little flat , unfortunately - It starts hop bittering, light pine, with mineral water coming through too heavily - it fades into more tropical notes moving forward, with a light infusion of caramel as stated - There’s better out there, but I have no clue on the price point here

Bomber dated 022315. Orangeish yellow. Aroma of hop resin and pine sol. Maybe a touch of dank. Taste is a very bitter oily hop. Finish has a subtile bitterness. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Une belle rondeur malté qui fini abruptement avec une amertume doucement astringente qui quitte le palais rapidement. Les saveurs se concentrent principalement autour de l’orange confite et de la terre humide. C’est pas plus juteux que résineux, assez balancé et peu complexe mais bien conçu.

Bottle... Pours mostly clear and amber with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Terrific retention. The aroma features notes of tropical fruit and resiny, peppery hops. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. Heavily bitter flavor and a lengthy, bitter, dry finish. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 A citrusy west coast IPA. Lemon zest, grapefruit, crisp malt, a little sweet, just a solid all-rounder, but not incredible by any means.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. First Beachwood experience. Semi-hazy, burnt golden sunburst color with a gray-tinted, bubbly film covering the top. Aroma of juicy passion fruit, mango, mild citrus, & a "different", almost berry-esque fruitiness that I’m going to pinpoint as pomegranate (go me!). Underbody of grass & just a hint of crystalline malt sweetness. Taste is definitely on the dryer side of things (which is good). Grassy notes, bitter pine, mild crackery malt, & a bit of perfume. The finish shows more of that herbal citrus peel character that you typically get from Simcoe with a strong resinous & tongue scraping bitterness thanks to the Chinook (I’m guessing). A touch of white pepper, lightly toasted bread, & lingering citrus peel in the finish. Beyond solid, very nice!
