The Beers of California

#99

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. (1,149 characters)

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! (510 characters)
