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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives with an amber color and capped nicely by a couple of inches of foam; plenty of lacing action

Smell: Tangerine and mango tones waft, with grapefruit, as well

Taste: CItrusy from the outset, with tangerine, grapefruit and mango flavors building; slight amount of piney bitterness, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium body, somewhat creamy, with moderate carbonation

Overall: One of the best among some great IPAs I tasted at the brewpub

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ, on to the beer:

This is a light orange colored beer, topped with good cream and solid lacing. The aroma is full of tangerine madness, and the fun does not let up there. A flavorful beer as well, as not only does it bring tangerine, but pine, orange, and a dry crackery case. It's medium bodied, not too bitter, which makes Hop Jitsu just another jewel in the crown of Beachwood beers.

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.
