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.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a light orange with a soft fizzy white head, some lace.

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.

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.
