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 Iím 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 (Iím guessing). A touch of white pepper, lightly toasted bread, & lingering citrus peel in the finish. Beyond solid, very nice!

Been waiting to taste this...not overhyped! Great example of the "west coast" style. Didnít pair this with anything, just wanted to enjoy.

On draft. Aroma of lemony cat piss. Flavor of lemon with some toasted malt. The lemony helps it rise above average.

Bottle shared at Edís like 2 months ago (Iím so up to date on my rates). Poured a not so great looking flat straw gold body with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma is dank, cat piss, wet pine needles and old citrus. Medium body overal with average to slightly stronger carbonation and a ncie mouthfeel overall. Flavor isnít as dank as the aroma but notes of citrus rind, fresh hop cones, and dry bread dominate. Solid beer here.
