As I picked this up I was expecting an average single ipa. As soon a I poured this I got hit with deliciousness. Extremely smooth and refreshing. A pleasure to drink and def gives blind pig a run for its money!

More people need to try this!! This beer is much better then 93.

Clear orange and light amber with a somewhat thick white head.

Piney hop aroma, dank marijuana, and some faint citrus notes along with a little sweet and sticky caramel malt.

A solid, not overly bitter, pine-forward IPA, balanced nicely with a touch of caramel sweetness.

Medium bodied. Ample carbonation.

A very solid, delicious IPA.

A- clear golden with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass.
S- floral hops, some vague citrus notes, grassy, lemon zest
T- lime, melon, bitter floral hops, soft malt profile
M- medium body and carbonation. Dry and grassy finish.
O- another good ipa from beachwood. More floral and earthy than others I've tried.

Pours a strong, large, off-white creamy head. Retention is fantastic. Brew is a very clear yellow-gold. Tons of thick, spider web lacing.

Hoppy aroma with a pale malt backbone. Floral, slightly catty, and some lighter pine.

Relatively light and bright flavor: citrus peel and pulp, pine, slightly dank, all riding on a honey-and-biscuit pale malt profile. Mosaic hops?

Crisp and smooth mouthfeel; fairly light, with a hint of syrupy smoothness.

This is a very good IPA, and although it doesn't seem to bring anything fresh to the table, that shouldn't take away from consistent, tasty, solid goodness.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange and clear. Small white head. Medium white collar.

Smell - Grassy hops. Citrus. Kinda smells like Nelson.

Taste - Grapefruit hops. Not as distinctly Nelson in flavor. Cracker malts. Light doughy sweetness. Grassy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Bitter.

Overall - Simple, but good.

2013 Vintage

Appearance: Slightly cloudy golden yellow color with a moderate white head .

Smell: Pine trees and citrus fruit aromas.

Taste:The pine and citrus fruit notes in the nose carry over to the taste. There's a mild hop bitterness in the finish.

Mouth-feel: Fairly light body with a moderate level of carbonation.

Overall: A good IPA. Beachwood has come out strong since they first opened the doors to the Long Beach locale.

A big thanks to Alex for sharing this growler at the amazing Super Bowl party he hosted. Cheers!

Appearance – Pours into a plastic cup with a nice dark amber/orange color and about a finger of slight tan head.

Smell – Lots of pine and citrusy hops, grapefruit and mango, slight toffee, and bready malts.

Taste – A nice bitterness up front mixed with some resiny pine. This fades to the aforementioned fruits. Not quite as sweet citrusy as I would hope, though quite obviously a great West Coast IPA. It is almost a mixed of Sculpin and PtE.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, nice carbonation for the style.

Overall – A very solid IPA from Beachwood. Very glad to have tried it.
