Poured 22oz bomber into New Belgium globe

A-It pours a nice golden color with a white head.

S-The aroma is sweet peaches, grape and mango hops. A little grapefruit blast as well.

T-The flavor is full with grapefruit, papaya and citrus. Massive fresh hop character. Very little caramel malt and a big citrus and spice finish.

M-Mouthfeel has a medium body and carbonation

O-Overall a great west coast IPA! Need more!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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

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!

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.
