4.18/5 rDev -4.3%
On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.
Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, peach, apricot, and tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a fantastic smell and some tasty flavors.

Appearance: Pours a hazy goldenrod with a decent head that leaves some splashy lace behind
Smell: Tropical fruit tones, with passion fruit, pineapple, papaya and pith (the four Ps)
Taste: Just a touch of the biscuit and then the hops take over, bringing a wallop of the tropical fruit flavors detected in the aroma and a very pithy bitterness that builds into the middle; there might even be a touch of custard apple, after the swallow, with the floral and bitter tones intermingling into the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: This is a top notch IPA that makes great use of the Mosaic hop
Thanks, lincolnbeard, for the opportunity

absolutely world class ipa here, one of the best expressions of mosaic hops i have seen, and a true west coast style gem from beachwood. the color is a radiant orange amber, quite clear but with a bit of fuzz as the bottle pours out. heady, one inch plus of thick and permanent white fluff. the nose is the best part, and its immaculate. rich and fresh mosaic hops, high in alpha acid, but showing less citrusy and more of a tropical fruit bouquet. i get passion fruit and pineapple, along with tart peach. its complex and awesome, and the grain bill is just large enough to keep these flavors on the tongue for awhile, before finishing off rather clean with a lingering bitter kick. i wish the brightness of the hops in the aroma came through into the flavor just a bit more cleanly, but they are still there, and its so juicy and delicious. fuller medium body and only enough carbonation to keep it in motion. overall a very well refined west coast ipa, special, and more interesting than many of the "throw it all in the kettle" types. the artwork on the label is also gorgeous. top notch ipa that i wish i could drink whenever i wanted.

On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours a golden amber with a soft white head, some thick lace as the pint is drunk.
S: All about the tropicality, but has a green streak running through it. Pungent, West Coast style.
T: Mango, passion fruit and grapefruit dominate the flavour which is very light on the malt. Rich and flavourful, another tasty IPA from these guys.
M: Medium-bodied, crisp, dry, resiny and dank.
O: A stellar IPA, and well worth a try if you're a fan of this style. Right up there with Melrose.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pellucid gold in color with a finger of white froth. The aroma is bright and aromatic. Guava, passion fruit, orange, grapefruit, pine resin. No malt. Flavor is moderately bitter, dry, and clean with lots of hop flavor. Tropical notes remind me of passion fruit and mango. Orange pith blends with juicy flesh, grapefruit, and a little pine. Clean, dry, hoppy finish. Highly recommended.
