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.

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.

Appearance – Golden-Orange. 1 finger white head.

Smell – Hops, hops, hops

Taste – Incredibly hop forward (which I prefer). I love the Row 2 malts they use. You can taste them on the backend without cutting into the hops.

Mouthfeel – Medium body. Nice amount of carbonation with a slightly creamy texture.

Overall – This blew me away. I knew Beachwood made solid beers, but this hangs with the best single IPAs out there. I prefer it over their Melrose IPA. Up there with the Alpine and KRBC offerings.
