On Tap

Pizza Port
Carlsbad, CA

Dark orange and amber with a thin but persistent off-white head. Tons of lacing left down the glass.

Powerfully pungent, hoppy aroma: lots of citrus (grapefruit) and a ton of pine character.

As in the nose, this is a big, hop-forward DIPA: lots of citrus and tons of pine along with a pretty high level of bitterness throughout.

Medium to thick mouthfeel, though very drinkable.

A very bitter, super hoppy DIPA. This is good stuff.

Orange pour at the FW Invitational Fest. Mild white head, 1/2" deep. Good retention, especially for something quadruple dry hopped.

What a pungently delicious of aroma, Simcoe, Amarillo & Columbus just blast the nose with an amazingly dank glowing light green herbal vivaciousness.

Taste, yup, hits hard there too. Tons of pine notes. Not that there isn't any citrus, its there, but the soft bitterness and high times pine notes really do a number on the taste buds in an entirely appopriate and awesome way. Screw Doritos, this tastes how awesome feels.

This was probably the best beer that didn't seem to have many talking or making much waves.

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.

Julian's second DIPA to be brewed and tapped at Beachwood BBQ Long Beach.

Beer pours a deep orange color with a touch of haze.

Amazing nose. Straight dank. Pine and citrus. Sim/Ama/Col quadruple dry hopped goodness.

Tasted watermelon right up front day one it was tapped. Freshness was evident, but in the best of ways. Starts fresh, finishes hoppylicious. Hop profile lingers and lingers. Alcohol hardly evident, those a tad noticeable.

Overall one of the best Julian's put out thus far. Drink responsibly and watch out for the flying KAPOW!
