On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours a light amber with a medium white head, some solid lace, good looking beer overall.
S: Quite floral with tropical fruits and honeysuckle. Notes of lemon and light citrus as well.
T: A complex hop flavour, tropicality with notes of herbs and citrus zest. As with the nose quite a floral characteristic, not an attack of bitterness, the hop play here is quite elegant.
M: Medium-bodied, crisp yet smooth carbonation, dry on the finish, medium aftertaste.
O: A really good IPA that seems to get lost in the shuffle of some of Beachwood's other brews like Melrose and Tovarish. Well worth a pint buy.

From Growler into a tulip glass. Fresh from the Brewery. Pours is a yellowish copper with an incredible fluffy white head that leaves thick curtains of lace as it settles down, incredible retention.
When I put my nose into the glass I get very traditional west coast IPA, citrus fruits, some tropical notes of mango and pineapple and a crazy blast of hops, lots of dank sweet hops, it's a great nose. Drinking Laurel is another great exercise in classic west coast IPA, huge blasts of hops, biting but perfectly balanced by the abundance of citrus fruits that explode in wave after wave of juicy delicious sweetness. The malt bill keeps things in line but lets the fruit from the four hops play out. Another remarkable IPA from Julian and the Beachwood team, they just keep getting better and better and I for one am along for the ride.

On tap for the 4th Anniversary event at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some slight tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same along with some herbal hop and onion-like flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is easy to drink but I think this one smells better than it tastes.
