COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a quest to make delicious beers, our brewers have continually sought creative new ways to accentuate the delightfully aromatic and flavorful qualities of hops. Hopheads rejoice!

Mash Hopping, First Wort Hopping, Kettle Hopping, and Dry Hopping create an award winning beer that embodies San Diego’s reputation for making world class IPAs. Our bottle Robust Series gives all beer lovers an opportunity to try our most rare beers, previously available only on draft at select tap houses. Enjoy! Get the Point!

Somewhat of a cloudy copper with a white head. Orange juice-laced Pac NW citrusy hop nose! Pretty sweet, there’s a solid amount of residual sugars in here to balance the bitterness, which is ample. Very citrusy hop flavor - grapefruit/orange. Full, round and creamy on the palate with moderate carbonation.

johnnnniee (2924) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Pours a crystal clear amber/copper with a big fluffy white head that sticks around forever leaving a sticky lace all over my glass. Smells of hops mostly, odd for a double IPA :) Pine citrus grapefruit, all the usually suspects. Hints of sweet malt 3 miles underneath the onslaught of Humulus lupulus. Taste is not quite as bitter as I expected, or my palette has been ruined from the IPA’s of late. Citrus and resin dominate, but the sweet taste of caramel peeks in somewhere in the middle before losing the battle to a lingering grapefruit finish. Thick body, bitter resinous mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Not a bad IPAx2

(On draught at Moto). Pours copper with off-white head. Taste is bitter with a nice malt body. Medium bodied with slick texture. Bitter finish. Nice, but I prefer Sculpin.

Tap at PB Tap Room. Cloudy golden brown. Fascinating sweet/sour/bitter flavors all at once. Definitely a big beer.

jredmond (6288) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Draft at the pony bar with baby streets and uncle Andy. Pours golden orange amber body. Aroma is citrus hops. Mouthfeel is smooth with notes of fresh citrus and pine hop.

peteinSD (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2011
PP Carlsbad. Golden yellow haze in the glass with a thick resinous pine aroma. Taste is chewy, resinous hops and pine with follow-up sweet malt. Quite the solid IIPA although I would prefer a more pronounced floral character.

jmm635 (934) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Pours a hazy, deep golden color with a medium-sized white head. Strong fruity aroma; peaches and grapefruit. Piney hop aroma. Hops and bitterness take center stage in the mouth. Enjoyable!

manuchampions (1243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2010
Old rate 2008. 650ml bottle from Philadelphia roadtrip. Hazy golden with a lasting off-white head. Delicious sweet hop aroma, dominated by orange, apricot and peach, with a little pine and tobacco bite. The flavour is the real deal: Extremely bitter, to the point of hurting the throat, and with no cloying malt sweetness. There is a touch of alcohol showing up at the end, along with green, pine, hoppy flavours in the aftertaste.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours a dark brown with a white head and a little bit of lacing. Smell is a lot of citrus (mostly grapefruit) hops with a bit of a floral character coming in as well. Taste is very similar with a strong bitterness and only a slight backing of caramel malt. Moderate body with good carbonation. Very drinkable, especially for a double IPA. Intriguing hop presence that I thoroughly enjoyed, perhaps more so than Sculpin. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-17-2010

dnstone (2364) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 19, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Light fresh hop aroma. Golden-amber in color. Sweet and freshingly hopped light citrus finish. A nice hop bite in the taste.
