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.

3.93/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle sent as an extra in a trade with brabuse430. I requested something hoppy I had not reviewed and he complied. Overall this is a decent beer, a little heavy for an IPA but I've been spoiled recently by a series of really light bodied IPAs I've brewed myself.

Beer served in a snifter, as I do not have the proper glassware for this brewery. I'm a failure at life and the rest. Beer is pretty dark amber, mild haze, white head, small bubbles, some lacing, decent retention.

Aroma is a little pine, mostly grapefruit, a little alcohol, a little malt.

Beer is medium in body, a little sweet, pretty bitter, nice citrus notes on the palate, overall a good drinking beer. A little heavier than I want but it is a nice balance of hops and backbone. I might have it again on draft.
