Draft service into a shaker pint glass at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach.

A: Clear, light amber color with one finger of persistent white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Crisp toasted malt is a minor but included component of the smell, compared to the dynamic West Coast hops that dominate. The coniferous qualities are deep, with a dusting of slightly funky tropical fruit that contribute variety and interest.

T: Begins barely off-dry, with soft bready malt and intense floral hop aromatics. Acidity is understated into the drying middle, where hop flavors turn very piney. Early flavors are somewhat resurgent during the mildly bitter finish, with aromatic tropical fruit balanced by pale malt and dry minerality but still helping to develop a lingering sensation of stickiness.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly sticky on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: A spectacular, Simcoe-kissed contribution of a West Coast IPA. Hop character is masterfully cultivated, with all the late addition qualities of Alpine Duet but turned up to greater intensity. Malt is understated yet noteworthy as well, while acidity remains sensibly out of the picture. This beer looks great, smells great, tastes great, and yet manages to be considerably more than just the sum of its parts.

Serving type: on-tap
