On-tap at Beachwood BBQ, on to the beer:

This is a light orange colored beer, topped with good cream and solid lacing. The aroma is full of tangerine madness, and the fun does not let up there. A flavorful beer as well, as not only does it bring tangerine, but pine, orange, and a dry crackery case. It's medium bodied, not too bitter, which makes Hop Jitsu just another jewel in the crown of Beachwood beers.

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.

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.
