I tried the Alpha Waves at the brewery. It poured a clear orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent and taste carried nice pine and citrus. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good beer.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

The pour is a light amber color with a dense white head. Nice fruity hop character up front with pineapple and grapefruit, as well as a few other citrus qualities. There is some bread malt sweetness to it, maybe a bit of grass, too. The flavor opens with intensely fruity hop character. Great pineapple, grapefruit, and tangerine notes with a nice floral character as well. Mild to moderate bitterness with a nice sweet bread/malt flavor in the background.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear honey copper with a tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a medium level of hop bitterness that lingers after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good sessionable IPA with good aromas and flavors.

On tap at Stone.

A: Dark orange with a small white head. Nice color and good clarity.

S: Orange, tangerine, and grapefruit flesh. Lightly sweet grainy, biscuity malt.

T: Grain and biscuit with sweet orange and grapefruit flesh. Lower moderate bitterness with notes of citrus rind. Drying fruity finish with grainy malt and a touch of floral character.

M: Lower medium body with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth and sticky.

Overall: A highly drinkable light hoppy beer. Amazing what can be done at 3.8%
