COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thrillseeker is a "West Coast-style" India pale ale that is sure to push your senses to the edge. It starts with a base of American 2-row malt and a restrained dose of extra light caramel malt to let the hops punch though. It’s then generously hopped with Chinook, Summit, Centennial, and Simcoe for a massive citrus and tropical hop profile. Thrillseeker is dry hopped with Simcoe and Chinook for an über fresh resiny aroma.

jackl (4980) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle @ Chez Bruce. Light gold, small head. Super fresh, bright citrus. Candied apricot and honey. Countryside meadow. Taste is a bit more abrasive from the juicy fruit nose. A bit of white onion. Peppery hops. Tropical undergrowth. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours clear gold with a small white head. The nose is fresh, juniper, floral, lemon, lime and light sweetness. The taste is bitter, boozy, floral, peppery, lemon peel, grapefruit and floral notes. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Booze is too much of a dominant factor. Nose is rather good, but the taste doesn’t live up to it.

djd07 (3896) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle thanks to clear orange with no head. The aroma is fruity hop and pine. Medium mouthfeel with nice light fruity hop, strong bitteness and dry finish. Good.

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle via trade extra. Pours a clear gold with almost no head but a slight white ring does exist. Aromas of pretty dank hops coupled with the standard piney/tree sap aroma. Taste is semi sweet and bitter. Flavors of pine bark coupled with some tropical fruit hoppiness. Finishes long and bitter. Good, not great.

Ontape (364) - Valley Village, California, USA - MAR 26, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 Bottle, dated two days ago. Killer, that neo-West Coast IPA style that’s been showing up in LA of late (Noble, El Segundo, Beachwood...) Pours very light and super transparent with light white head. It’s beautiful in the glass, hard to fault. Aroma is fresh hops backed with subtle malt. Taste is juicy and fruity with light tropical tartness and just enough sweetness to bring it home. Citrus / rind / herbs / magic.

Freshly bottled Beachwood IPAs are fire, don’t miss ’em. A high rating to be sure, but this thing two days old warrants it in my book. Still love Pliny but our best SoCal guys are catching up! UPDATE 10/2/14. Three days old this time. Still hot!

adrosson (148) - California, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Strong hoppy ipa. At first mouth feel and tropical fruits reminded me of Pliny but as I drank it the bitterness and pine took over. Big bottle whole foods

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle - Pine and some light tropical fruits. Clear gold with a rich white head. Grapefruit and a huge bitter hit that fades quickly. Nice IPA.

Typical dry west coaster. The hop melange worked surprisingly well. Ncie one.

Bottle from Bine and Vine. Pours a clear light copper color. Aroma is massive tropical fruits and sweet, malty syrup. Taste is sweet with some bitterness and awesome tropical fruits. Medium bodied and dry. Good stuff!
