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.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ

Pours a clear amber color with a sticky white head. Intense pine and floral hop aromas. Very resinous and perhaps even a bit herbal. Almost no malt is to be found here. Just a touch of tropical fruit, quite a bit of grapefruit peel. The flavor is quite bitter, moreso than expected. Intense pine, herbal, and resinous hop qualities. Grapefruit peel and maybe a little pineapple on the finish. Again, almost no malt. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and a dry finish.

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.

8/5/2012

On tap at Beachwood Long Beach.

Golden orange with a creamy white cap. Good clarity and nice color. Great retention with scattered sheets of lacing.

Perfumy floral aroma with ample orange and grapefruit flesh. Sweet malt, touch of pine, and a dash of melon.

The flavor is juicy orange flesh with nectarine and a little grapefruit. Lightly sweet malt presence with a smooth medium bitterness. There's some citrus rind in the late palate and a little honeydew melon. Lower medium body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky and dry.

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.
