Served in a snifter at Blue Palms.

A: clear, murky yellow.

S: Garlicy hops. Sharp citrus.

T: I know these hops, I just can't call the name. Simcoe? Garlicky, citrus, and strong. Nothing else in this astringently hoppy beer.

M: Dry and intimidating.

O: An abrasive, one-dimensional beer that I enjoyed but is not particularly balanced. Taste at your peril.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The beer pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head.

S: An intense hop aroma to this one. Lots of citrus hops and perhaps even more pine. A strong herbal hop aroma, too, with lots of grapefruit peel. Just a touch of grass, a little bit of malt on the back end.

T: Intense resinous and oily pine flavors. Decently bitter without being overly so. Citrus peel and grapefruit hop flavors and a light herbal note. Slight malt sweetness in there somewhere.

M: Medim bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: Another solid hoppy beer from Julian/Beachwood. Good stuff.

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.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad.

A: Yellow gold with perfect clarity. The head is a finger of white sea foam exhibiting good retention and leaving much lacing on the glass.

S: Strong floral notes with a prodigious pine resin presence. There's a touch of candied sweetness but it quickly fades. Notes of tangerine, honeydew, and apricot waft from the glass. Very nice.

T: Grapefruit flesh and rind with a little stone fruit and melon. The beer has a light malt sweetness with a prominent pine resin profile. Bitterness is at an upper moderate level and there's a touch of alcohol in the flavor that wanes apace as the bitterness waxes toward the finish.

M: Medium body with a nice level of upper moderate carbonation.

Overall: Another nice beer from Julian. Recommended.
