Really solid IPA. It's no Amalgamator or Citraholic, but damn fine in it's own right. Very clean & well crafted west coast style. Pine Resin, kiss of honey, and the citrus is primarily melon with some grapefruit. An old school, arguably flawlessly executed west coast IPA. Bottled 27 days ago. Flavors really open up as it warms. Recommended.

Big thanks to 2beerdogs for these delicious Beachwood beers. From notes

Pours a clear, dark gold, nice topper of white foam, exc. lace on glass.

Med. strength aroma featuring bitter herb, pine, bitter orange, citrus pith, neutral sweet. Quite alluring.

All the flavors of the aroma with a dank hint and light touch of caramel added to the mix, and an almost juicy/almost dry end of sip. Balanced and mellow flavor presentation.

Med. carb., med. body and viscosity for style, tasty clean finish. Refreshing character.

Excellent beer that was enjoyed greatly. Definitely recommended.

Poured into a wine glass.

Look: dark golden hue, with a nice creamy head that leaves loads of carbonation.

Smell: Honey, citrus, grapefruit, pine, herbs. Yum. Delicious sweet round fragrances,

Taste: Melon, grapefruit, sweet bread and caramel malts.

Overall: This is an amazing IPA, very low bitterness, and great flavor.
