4.44/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Got on tap at Father's Office in Santa Monica. Pour is a clear orange with slight head. Aroma is dank and promisingly hoppy.

Taste is dank citrus, in very good combination. Bitter there but under control, throughout rather than hitting only early or only late. Alcohol or the hops are suggesting a rotten peaches taste. Hey, I like rotten peaches in moderation. Mouth is light and clean, ever so slightly resin at the finish and minimal carb.

A great beer, and the hops take over preventing this dipa from going into too sweet citrus territory. Every thing a hop head and a dipa fan (9+%) may desire. Super.

- 6oz. pour off tap into a pint glass at the restaurant (Long Beach, CA) on 5-Feb-16

Super dank; more grassy than tropical notes but still pretty juicy. As with a lot of Beachwood's IPA's, this one's a little too much on the hop bitterness, especially in the finish, for my tastes. But natural hopheads should love this.

Consumed 2/12/15 at the Good Hop Oakland!
This beer was flawless in appearance golden/orange, nice lacing to start.
Very strong tropical smell, orange zest, Hops!!
This taste is fantastic, citrus, mango, hop Bomb!
Really smooth mouth feel, not over carb.
I really enjoyed this DIPA, great hop bouqet with a small malt taste, yet the beer is easily drinkable. Great job on this brew!
