On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma is dank with hop and pine resins, also grassy. Taste has dank notes, chives, bitter hop resin. Classic but well made.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy amber color ale with a medium off-white foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma of citrusy hoppy undertones with some light residual sugar notes. Taste is a sublime mix of fresh citrusy notes with some floral undertones, some residual sugar notes and some malt notes also noticeable with no apparent bitterness. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Solid IPA which should make it to their regular offerings.

This one pours a pretty solidly bright and sunny orange, slightly hazy, but not soupy looking, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This one smells like orange, passionfruit, mango, pineapple, and pine- seems pretty juicy, but not entirely juice, which I can dig.

I'm really liking the feeling Bellwoods seems to be going with in their IPAs. They're quite juicy up front, with a nice lingering bitterness that reminds you that it's an actual IPA. The Citra and Mosaic here is super bright, with juicy and tangy tangerine, orange peel, and passionfruit, with a nice zesty and clean bitterness. It's super drinkable, and goes down super easily.

This one has a good mouthfeel, with a really nice crispness, and a normal level of carbonation.

Bellwoods is on a higher level when it comes to beers, it seems. Awesome stuff, and highly recommended.

Citra/mosaic Mar 13, 2017.

Hazy straw, white head, thin ring of retention, bit of lace.

Nice hop aroma, gooseberry, tangerine and spearmint.

Taste is hop forward, but not overly aggressive. Tangerine, nectarin, gooseberry, candied papaya, modest bitterness.

Surprisingly the body is on the lighter side of moderate. It has a bit of prickly acidity.

It's good, but I expected more.

Thanks BakaGaijin!

An IPA double-dry hopped with Citra and Mosaic as well as "lupulin powder", which is new to me. The aroma is very nice, mango, orange, a touch of pineapple and a slight herbal scent. The first time I had this beer, I liked it but was not particularly excited by it. It has grown on me a lot (likely just not in the right mood for it at the time). A big, smooth fruit flavour with a moderate bitterness. Low carbonation.

Pours cloudy straw with a short lived smallish head the leaves a good amount of lace on the glass. Stonefruit and citrus in the aroma. In the taste hops dominate with lots of peach, citrus, tropical fruit. Peppery notes in there too. Very light malt profile tags along. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a mouthcoating hop bitterness. Long medium high bitter finish.

An interesting IPA. Very fruity and in your face. Worth a a try.

Pours beautifully hazy with a small head. Tons of peach and apricot on the nose witch also appears in the flavour. Bittering is slightly assertive with a hint of berry at the end.
