Picked up a fresh Growler at BWLB. The appearance is classic west coat IPA,copper salmon orange with a very impressive head with very good retention and excellent lacing, very good looking brew. The nose is dominated by the intense use of Citra hops, dank, fresh and loaded with fruit notes of tangerine, mango, peach and juicy red grapefruit. Flavors jump right in behind the nose, sweet cantaloupe, mango and orange are up front with background notes of bitter lemon zest, pine and a faint dry biscuit note, absolutely delicious and even more as it warms up a bit. The mouth is classic well made west coat IPA that is redolent with so much Citra and Simcoe, not to dry and not oily at all, in fact it's very quaffable at 7+abv. Another stunning world class IPA from Julian and the team at BW.

On tap for Beachwood LB's 3rd Anniversary event.

A: Pours a clear yellowish orange under a 1/2" thick white head which fades yielding spots and splotches of lace.

N: Citrusy, herbal, with some dank piney notes.

T: A bit more malt balance and sweetness with citrus and faint pine danky.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Dry, bitter and dank finish.

O: Solid, well done.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with minimal head, but some decent lacing. Initial aroma is almost a bit smokey, mixed with some bitter pine. It drinks smooth, with a very dry, pineapple finish. The mouthfeel's probably a bit heavier than you'd guess given pretty moderate carbonation.
