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.

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.

Got a bomber from Total Wine in Redondo Beach, CA (on suggestion from the floor clerk)

This IPA pours an amber/orange with lots of lacing. Two finger head. Smell is packed with tropical hops - sweet grapefruit, pineapple, citrus upfront with one whiff. Carbonation and mouth feel was just about right - on the creamy side, very pleasant. Taste overall is very balanced - nice malt base with lots of tropical hops. I would say if you can't get your hands on Pliny then this is a close second. The ABV is 7% but it tastes like a DIPA with a full bodied/balanced taste. I highly recommend this one.

Went down to the Seal Beach location this afternoon, unfortunately all of their bottles sold out the day of the release! A nice bartender recommended that I try Whole Foods, and I was able to find it there (albeit for a $1 more at $8.99).

If there's a better brewery in the greater LA/OC area, I don't believe you. I live in the valley, and am not able to travel to the actual locations very much, but have tried Thrillseeker, Melrose, and Amalgamator since they began bottling them. All are top notch IPAs.

Beautiful, clear golden color. Great lacing. Awesome nose. Slightly sweet finish to balance the hops. Excellent beer. The only thing I can knock off really is the price, which is slightly high. I wish their beers were more readily available in Los Angeles.
