Beer Review: BEACHWOOD GREENSHIFT (3RD ANNIVERSARY DIPA)

The pour reveals a striking amber gold elixir, boasting clarity, and crowned with a resilient white film.

Aroma:

A symphony of bold scents dances from the glass – an overpowering blend of tangerine, sativa, pine, and a hint of mango, all emanating from an interstellar concoction of Citra, Mosaic, and Nelson Sauvin hops.

Taste:

Prepare for a flavor voyage as the first sip introduces orange pith and an assertive pine bitterness. Dry malt nuances pave the way for a prolonged bitterness that lingers on the palate, surprising the taste buds.

Mouthfeel:

A juicy sensation graces the palate, complemented by a full body and moderate carbonation. The beer’s mouthfeel is as dynamic as its hop profile, creating a well-rounded drinking experience.

Overall:

This brew epitomizes the essence of “green,” an apt descriptor for its abundance of hoppy goodness. The initial aroma may hint at a sweeter affair, but the reality unfolds with a barrage of aggressive bitter hops. The execution is commendable, delivering a 10% beer that maintains a remarkable cleanliness and crispness. In my fanciful musings, I envision Beachwood Brewery squeezing hops into the brew like a cartoon character, resulting in a supernova of flavors. A commendable creation, with each sip revealing the craftsmanship behind this double India pale ale.
