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!

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAR 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 13, 2009 Upon opening, the citrusy smells really came out. After an aggressive pour they intensified. First taste was pine and malt - this one has a very robust malt backbone, unlike the standard "West Coast IPA." Lingering bitter aftertaste that is mild, but staying. ADDITIONAL NOTES (5/17): As this brew gets older, the hops REALLY fade, to the point where the malt totally takes over. It becomes kind of a "Barleywine Light". THIRD ANALYSIS: This is amazing fresh! Went through a growler of this, and yes, its a beautiful skunky fresh cannabis tasting beer!

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle. Most unique IIPA nose. Not just the standard pine and caramel. Granted, they are there, but there’s also plenty of dry wood, cilantro, mint and white grape skin. Quite pleasant. Pours a thick gold with a nice sized white head leaving excellent lacing. Nicely balanced flavor profile... if an IIPA can be balanced at all. Pine resin initially, dry and spicy wood tannin, toasted caramel, mint. Very unique. Medium to full bodied. Sweet but never cloying. Interesting representation of the style for sure.

Skinnyviking (7536) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off-white head leaving nice curtains on the glass. Clear amber body. Fruity barley malt aroma with grassy notes and hops of course. Hops dominated flavor with hints of raisins. Alcohol very well hidden byt the bitterness. Low carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Bottle shared by MaxxDaddy. He said this tasted fishy, I didn’t quite get that, but there was a bit of an odd finish. Very hoppy overall, loaded with resin, an a very bitter finish. Malts are fairly light, with a touch of sweetness. The body is fine though this was quite hard to drink.

Bottle. A amber beer with a big white head. The aroma is sweet malty with fresh hoppy grapefruit notes. The taste is sweet malty, some caramel, but lots of hops, grapefruit/peach. Medium body with a long hoppy finish.

Ughsmash (7280) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Bomber. Poured a fiery, lighter shade of orange with a nice cap of orangey-beige head. The aroma picked up huge doses of tangerines and English-inspired floral hoppage upfront with juicy pears, peppery spices, and a touch of alcohol warmth coming shortly afterward.. aggressive, but well-executed. The flavor had even more tangerine, in both core sweetness and zesty surrounding bitterness.. alcohol-fueled pine also surround, and this leaves a warm, resiny citrus finish. Heavier-bodied with an OK flow across the palate.. a hair too sharp on the finish. Overall a very good brew!
