4.03/5  rDev -3.4%

SF Beer Week 2014, City Beer Store. Pours a bright medium gold. The liquid is clear. Big sticky white head that lasts for quite awhile. It's all hop with a whole bunch of different flavors knocking around. There are berries, grass, grapes, a big herbal note and peppercorn. The herbal note gives the beer a fairly unusual tone, compared to many IPAs. The taste is rather dry with medium to strong bitterness for the strength of the beer. Solid hop flavor throughout with more emphasis on that herbal, spicy note. The mouthfeel is quite light, almost overly so, with some good hop oiliness. Overall, it's a very good beer, which shouldn't be terribly surprising for an IPA from Beachwood BBQ, but almost a touch harsh, and I can't say that I loved the hop flavor, though it was interesting.

Picked up a fresh Growler at BWLB. The appearance is classic west coat IPA,copper salmon orange with a very impressive head with very good retention and excellent lacing, very good looking brew. The nose is dominated by the intense use of Citra hops, dank, fresh and loaded with fruit notes of tangerine, mango, peach and juicy red grapefruit. Flavors jump right in behind the nose, sweet cantaloupe, mango and orange are up front with background notes of bitter lemon zest, pine and a faint dry biscuit note, absolutely delicious and even more as it warms up a bit. The mouth is classic well made west coat IPA that is redolent with so much Citra and Simcoe, not to dry and not oily at all, in fact it's very quaffable at 7+abv. Another stunning world class IPA from Julian and the team at BW.

On tap for Beachwood LB's 3rd Anniversary event.

A: Pours a clear yellowish orange under a 1/2" thick white head which fades yielding spots and splotches of lace.

N: Citrusy, herbal, with some dank piney notes.

T: A bit more malt balance and sweetness with citrus and faint pine danky.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Dry, bitter and dank finish.

O: Solid, well done.

On tap at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal and berry-like flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting herbal and earthy fruit quality in the aroma and flavor.
