I tried the Thrillseeker at the brewery. It poured a clear orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent and taste had floral tones of pine and citrus. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

Dry bitter west coast floral IPA. A good beer but not up there with their other offerings.

Deep gold body with a cottony head that lasted almost the entire time I was drinking it.
Smells great, the balance between citrus and pine make it smell like tropical trees. I'd wear it as cologne if I could.
The quality of the taste doesn't quite match the nose's. It doesn't have that balance that great balance that the smell had, but still not bad.
The mouthfeel is a little more astringent than I expected, but it made for some pretty easy drinking.
Overall, a pretty good ipa. It didn't blow me away, but it's opened the door to trying more from Beechwood.

650ml bottle, served in a snifter glass.

Pours a medium golden-copper body, one finger white head, good retention, a bit of lacing. Smells of pine, grapefruit, floral notes, caramel and toffee. Flavour is a pretty quintessential west coast style IPA right here, with grapefruit, floral notes, on a mild caramel and pine backbone, moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-thinner bodied, good carbonation, decent depth. Standard west coast style IPA.
