Enjoyed this at the brewpub in Long Beach. Reviewing from notes.

The pour reveals a slightly hazy brass liquid with a rocky pure white head. Huge amounts of lace cling to the glass. Aromatic floral hop notes fill the smell. Some tangerine and grapefruit mix with passionfruit notes. The taste is delicate and balanced. Tropical sweet hop notes blend flawlessly with a citric bitterness and layers of bready, cookie dough malts. Alcohol is impeccably hidden behind all the hop and malt flavors. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a spritzy carbonation. Floral hop notes in the finish eventually give way to a long long lasting bitterness.

This is an outstanding DIPA. Hop forward but very well balanced. A subtler, more tropical hop character than their Melrose IPA. Went amazingly with my spicy sausage sandwich.

Serving type: on-tap

Rat a tat tat Raul rollin up to Beachwood in Seal Beach, CA like that.

Beautiful orange texture like Nina Agdal by candle light...

Taste is a lovely combination of juicy hops with a balanced backbone unlike the O'Reilly factor.

Just a straight solid IPA where the east meets the west and they shake hands like the Americans and Germans during a WWI Christmas Eve.
