Served in a snifter at Blue Palms.

A: clear, murky yellow.

S: Garlicy hops. Sharp citrus.

T: I know these hops, I just can't call the name. Simcoe? Garlicky, citrus, and strong. Nothing else in this astringently hoppy beer.

M: Dry and intimidating.

O: An abrasive, one-dimensional beer that I enjoyed but is not particularly balanced. Taste at your peril.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The beer pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head.

S: An intense hop aroma to this one. Lots of citrus hops and perhaps even more pine. A strong herbal hop aroma, too, with lots of grapefruit peel. Just a touch of grass, a little bit of malt on the back end.

T: Intense resinous and oily pine flavors. Decently bitter without being overly so. Citrus peel and grapefruit hop flavors and a light herbal note. Slight malt sweetness in there somewhere.

M: Medim bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: Another solid hoppy beer from Julian/Beachwood. Good stuff.
