Beachwood BBQ Brewing, Heretic Brewing Company, and Stone Brewing Co. are three major breweries and they teamed up to create Unapologetic IPA, a Double India Pale Ale with more flavor than you can shake a stick at. I don’t know why you would shake a stick at an IPA, but it’s cool with me if you’re into that sort of thing. It pours an amber orange color with a thick white head. I get whiffs of pine and resin hops, citrus, florals, fruit, spice, and a little grass. The taste isn’t as bitter as I thought it would be. I get lots of pine hops with a malty backbone and hints of citrus, lemon peel, grapefruit peel, orange peel, grass, caramel, and dark fruits. It also has an 8.8% ABV, but you can’t taste the alcohol. It’s simply an enjoyable and drinkable seasonal IPA that you have to enjoy it while you can. So get one and enjoy it.
