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 at Beachwood I,

S: Vibrant tropical fruit, some stone fruit, very inviting.
T: Lots of tropical fruit again. Pineapple and passion fruit especially. Some grassy undercurrents. Juicy delicious hop resin.
M: Medium-bodied, dry, crisp carbonation, long aftertaste.
O: Quite a good new IPA from these guys. Julian knows how to craft a great IPA, this is another one to add to the list.

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.
