Inspired by successes of California Pro Brewers at the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup in the American IPA & Double IPA categories and brewed by Pat McIlhenney of the Alpine Beer Company, this is what San Diego brewers like to call a California IPA. According to Harold Gulbransen of QUAFF, "Pat, a San Diego County fire captain (when not brewing beer), is a great brewer and supporter of homebrewing. He has been a long time member of QUAFF and an overall great guy. This beer will not be a Double IPA, but more like an American IPA... a bit more "quaffable." Pun intended
