On tap at Surly Goat in West Hollywood, CA.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with some slight onion and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but strong.

On tap at The Bruery Provisions. Appetizing hoppy aroma. Light orange colour with a little white head.Big big IBU, the malt was very much a secondary show. White lace in my glass. Difficult to drink because of the palate shredding. Certainly spot on the style.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ and Brewing.

A: Bright gold with two fingers of white foam. Good retention and lots of lacing.

S: Tangerine blends with orange, grapefruit, and a dash of mango. Caramel is evident, and there's a light sugary aspect to it. Alcohol is present but restrained. Pine resin is pervasive, and there are light floral notes.

T: Grapefruit and orange with sugary caramel lingering beneath. Sweetness is short-lived. There's a little bread and a lot of tangerine flesh with a strong pine presence.

M: Medium in body with moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice Double IPA. This is a little maltier than their other hoppy offerings, but still enjoyable.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The beer pours a slight chill haze and two fingers of sticky white head which leaves excellent lacing.

S: A solid aroma of pine and grapefruit as well as a touch of tropical fruit. There isn't much malt aroma to it, just a little bit of bread and toffee. There is a very intense floral quality to go along with all the pine notes.

T: A pretty nice balance between the bitterness and the hop flavor. Moderate citrus notes, mostly grapefruit and tangerine, but just a ton of pine. Decent floral notes as well as some light malt and alcohol on the finish.

M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation and a lingering bitterness.

O: This is a pretty solid Double IPA, but I would rather have a glass of Melrose.
