Fresh Growler purchased at BWLB. The pour into my tulip reveals a beautiful sunset washed orange color with a super dense inch thick cap that leaves the most impressive curtain of sticky lace as I sip down. The nose is as good as any APA I have had, Zombie Dust, Hoppy Birthday ext. Super fresh hops that reveal orange, mango, fresh cantaloupe, pine, very impressive. The flavor profile follows suite, super concentrated tropical fruits, stone fruits, perfect hint of pale malt balance this beauty out perfectly. The mouth and finish are crisp, very intense and dry, this is a session beer at 5.4 % abv and it's truly easy to drink. Overall I put this up at the top for APA. A magnificent effort in a continuing line of world class beers from Beachwood.

Clear golden orange with a finger of white head. Heavy orange and citrus peel aromas with pine and floral hop notes. A light herbal note with some pale malt base. Strong hop flavor and a decent bitterness. Citrus peel and pine flavor. Medium body and carbonation.

On tap at Stone.

A: Burnished gold with good transparency and an inch of white sea foam. Retention is good and sheets of lacing cling to the glass.

S: Tangerine and orange flesh blend with light perfumy floral notes and a little papaya. Malt stays out of the way, feebly offering meager cracker notes. Smells nice.

T: Orange flesh and pith with a little tangerine. Bitterness is at a moderate level and the beer is very dry, with malt imparting cracker but no real sweetness. The finish is dry and bitter with citrus rind and a little astringency.

M: Upper light body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is dry, crisp, and sticky.

Overall: A good hoppy pale ale.

On-tap at Beachwood II,

A: Pours a clear dark gold with a medium white head, great lace.

S: Not huge, but has nice notes of pineapple and citrus.

T: Light bready malt flavour as the backbone. The hop flavour is good, tropical with some tangerine, melon and lemon. Nice mix of flavours.

M: Medium-bodied, smooth, medium aftertaste. Good hoppy character.

O: Definitely a quality pale ale. Reminds me a bit of SNPA if it got tropical. The Simcoe is showing its stuff. Worth a try.
