look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a filtered crystal clear golden hue with a nice nearly two finger creamy white head that fades to leave a thin blanket and light side lacing.

S - Aromas of nice pine, orange zest, tropical fruits (mango, passion fruit). Faint grapefruit as well.

T - Taste is much more bitter than the nose. Loads more pine and some grassy hops, the tropical notes are super, super faint. Light soft caramel, faint malty sweetness. Nice citrus zest. A very tasty beer, but doesnt really match up with the nose.

M - Mouthfeel is good, nicely carbonated, alcohol hidden well. Very drinkable.

O - Overall, this is a really solid IPA, nose is dominated by citrus and tropical notes, whereas the taste is nearly all pine and a hint of grapefruit. Kind of wish it tasted like it smelled, or vice versa.

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.

3.9/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Gold with amazing clarity, quickly builds a rocky two finger head of stark white. Retention is ridiculously high, the cap of foam doesn't want to leave the top layer of liquid resulting in slight flecks of lacing.

Aroma is rather muted personafied by floral grasses and bright citrus. Honey bread malt provides a solid foundation. Hay, straw, wild flowers, lemon peel and pink grapefruit hops.

Malt is pale and thin, toasted white bread with a lick of cookie dough. Hops are very bright, floral herbs and yellow citrus, grapefruit pith and lemongrass at the epicenter with some pine, chives and red berry. Alcohol is has a steely edge when matched with the medium high bitterness and soapy drying in the finish.

Medium bodied and judging by the attractive head formation the carbonation is boisterous. Finish is metallic and very bitter but also nicely drying. Moderate alcohol.

Thrillseeker uses classic hops to bring a bright grassy/citrus profile to life with high alpha acids and a scrubbing bone dry finish. Lacks the aroma and touch/feel to raise it into the next level of IPAs.

Copper color. Medium-sized head with moderately large bubbles. In the aroma, caramel prominent, grapefruit, pineapple. Bitterness medium. Body medium. Carbonation medium. Pretty tasty, though I wish there was less caramel flavor, allowing the hops to come through more.
