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. Itís 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 Łber fresh resiny aroma.

A super well rounded IPA. A complex weaving of hops on the nose and tongue. Drink this beer cold and by itself. Delicious.

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

Man Jullian can brew the shit outta some beer! Pours a nice gold color with a fluffy white head. Tons of hops bursting in the aroma, citrus, resin, floral, spicy, earthy. Wow. Flavor is just juicy and perfectly bitter. Just a hint of caramel to keep this from going bitter crazy.

Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Wow. Damn good IPA. Bottle brought home from San Diego. Has a rich malt backbone (sweet dough, light nuts, fresh-baked biscuits). Delicious and super-juicy hops (tangerine, lemon, grapefruit) with nips of pine. Floral aromas. Tastes like it was hop bursted to hell. Bitterness is mild but incredibly balanced. Had I known, I would have packed more of these bottles in my suitcase.

Bottle, dated two days ago. Killer, that neo-West Coast IPA style thatís been showing up in LA of late (Noble, El Segundo, Beachwood...) Pours very light and super transparent with light white head. Itís beautiful in the glass -- if this ainít a 5 for appearance I donít know what is. 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, donít miss íem. 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!

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Appearance. Pours a clear bodied amber gold. Atop sits a modest off white head that eventually turns to a swirly film.

Aroma: Citrus bouquet of tangerine, grapefruit, orange. Floral, piney and a little dank.

Taste: Bitter earthy hops followed by a citrus burst of juicy hops.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with modest prickly bubbles.

Overall: One of the best IPAís Iíve ever had. Amazing taste and aroma, and not too malty.

JoeTheYounger (1144) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle from House Of Spirits in Monrovia. This beer poured a beautiful clear orange pour with a big white bubbly head. Aroma is freaking awesome with notes of citrus, caramel, and fruity hops. Taste is initially super fruity and sticky with an onslaught of hops hitting the back of your palate. Finishes dry with some caramel malt flavor to keep it from getting too bitter. Wow this is a phenomenal IPA.

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

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 On tap (multiple glasses) at Blue Palms 3rd Anniversary. Pours with a clear golden hued body and a small white head that lasts for the duration. Huge citrusy notes, dank, tropical fruit, grapefruit, resin. Minimal malt aromas. Flavors are dank, papaya, citrus, and tropical fruit. All about the hops. Bitter balance, floral, bursting with flavor and aroma. Lively bubbles, dry with a medium lingering bitterness. Very tasty! Second batch is even an improvement on the first!

Tap at FW Fest. Pours a dark golden with medium white head. Aroma is loads of strawberry and black berry. Great hop profile in the taste with simcoe coming through and some citrus elements. Fruity IPAs are my thing and thus this is my thing.
