A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a beige color with a 1 inch head. Smell is balnaced citrus hops and caramel malts. Taste starts off very hoppy, some citrus, caramel malts at the end. Bitter and desert dry. Feels medium bodied in mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

Golden Amber color poured into an IPA glass from a 16oz can. Piney, citrus hop aromas give way to a hoppy palate, pine, grapefruit, citrus Flavors, not a whole lot of sweetness but it works. Only drawback, is the lack of body, could use a little more maltiness, but still very good.

Outstanding beer! Found it in a little dive in VA Beach. Came in one of the best designed cans ever! The 108 IBUs hits you right away! The taste was right up there with the better IPAs I've ever had (Dogfish 90, Hoptimus Prime, Hoptimum) I've never had a a beer from Beach Brewing; but after this one I'm hooked. Not sure if I can get it here in DE but if when I go back to VA in Feb. I plan on going to the brewery.
