Freshness Date: None

A: Golden orange with a moderate amount of hazy yellow topped off with an off white head of stick foam. The foam lasts ultimately leaving behind a blanket of lace on the glass and several islands of bubbles on top of the brew.

S: The tropicality comes through first: passion fruit, mango and pineapple. There is also a good amount of citrus and hints of apricot. Some dank resinous character is also there adding to the bready, honey malt foundation.

T: The hops lean toward mango, passion fruit, and pineapple tropical juiciness along with grapefruit peel and moments of apricot. There is also dank and resin which highlight the honey bread malt backbone which does its best to hold this brew together. Mild alcohol warmth along with earthy hop bitterness comes though in the finish.

M: Medium feel and crisp with a resinous linger and good supporting carbonation.

O: Beachwood BBQ is a Brewpub gem. So good I needed to take this brew home. I love the complex, juicy hop characteristics with strong tropical tones. Just the way I like my IPA's. Looking forward to filling this growler again.

Poured a clear golden orange with an inch off white head. Plenty of lacing sticks to the glass. The smells is amazing. It consists of a combination of dank resin, citrus fruits, and a touch of passion fruit. The taste is very similar. Passion fruit, tropical fruits is followed by a dank resinous flavor and ending with a citrus bitterness. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy (somewhat buttery) with little (but some) carbonation. Overall, a great IPA and deserves do be up there with the best west coast IPAs!

Poured from a bottle, no date, after receiving in a trade...

Beautiful orange color with a frothy head and sticky lace. The aromas are absolutely stunning. Lovely citrus notes to include oranges, mangos, passion fruits. The taste echoes those sentiments with some resin and grass notes and nice pine backbone. The mouthfeel is medium body, solid carbonation with a nice biting finish.

Overall, this is one of the damn finest IPAs out there. Reminds a lot of Hill Farmstead offering in the aroma and mouthfeel. Lots of citrus with a piney finish which makes it incredibly balanced. I'm happy to have gotten a bottle of this. Wonderful!
