A- golden, almost amber actually, translucent, very nice three finger white fluffy head that leaves chunky white lacing
S-tangerines, grapefruit, passion fruit
T- right along with the nose tons of oranges and grapefruit, very tropical upfront but you get floral notes in the back end. Dank hops. Very sweet caramel malt flavor.
M- medium body with moderate carbonation. Very warm and inviting in the beginning with tropical hops and sweet malt. Then it dries out nicely showcasing some herbal and floral touches.
O- When I hear the phrase "west coast IPA" this is the beer I will think of. Outstanding from start to finish with great body, malt, and hop profiles.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this growler. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is unmistakably that of a West Coast IPA. I get a ton of citrus and tropical fruit notes - peaches, pineapples and oranges. I also get a little bit of bread, but the aroma is basically all about the hops. The flavor is more of the same. There are tons of pineapple,. peach and apricot notes making up the flavor. The bread and biscuit malt is also present and the bitterness is pretty low, even though the hop flavor is so high. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very, very good and glad I got to try it.

Amber in color. Small white head. Lined, sticky lacing.

Grapefruit flesh and zest in the aroma. Some pine and resin as well along with caramel and floral notes.

Bitter but drinkable IPA. Lots of grapefruit and bitter citrus. Some pine and resin along with a bit of sweet caramel.

Medium body with crisp carbonation.

Really enjoyed this. Beachwood is making fantastic IPAs.

A-copper in appearance. Pours single head foam.

S - really clean and distinct hop aroma. Piney, floral, tropical. Really inviting.

T- pretty assertive bitterness but not unpleasant at all. Lots of tasty fruity hop flavor. Resinous, dank, piney on the finish. You can definitely tell that Simcoe and Amarillo were used in this guy.

M - nice carbonation, medium body. Refreshing.

O - my favorite IPA from Beachwood. Not sure of the IBU's on this sucker but it's pretty hoppy. Malts are nicely integrated and balanced.
