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!

thanks to IrishBoy for this beer. Body is amber, with very thin white head. Aroma is a piney, soapy, hoppiness, with floral notes and light citrus. Taste is a little soapy with a nice floral hoppy content, light fruit, and caramel.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2010 Bomber. Almost clear amber/orange with a medium head. Fair lacing. Aroma is big citrus hops; grapefruit and orange. A lot of orange in the taste with some tropical fruit and melon. West-coast balanced-just a bit of sweet malt. Bitter citrus-rind finish.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Bottle thanks to miketd. Golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is big, citrusy, and sweet - lots of cantaloupe, floral hops, and sweet malt. Flavor is overwhelmingly dominated by sweet hops and cantaloupe. Citrus, floral hops, and some sugary malts mix in there nicely. Light hop sting and a smooth, not overly heavy mouthfeel make it a really nice DIPA. Refreshing and lively

Bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with big foamy white head. Aroma is sweet malt and floral hops. Taste is very full with semi-sweet caramel malts and piney hops. Juicy light fruits make the hops seem powerful without having a bitter bite. Very nice.

Ballast or blast? Excellent combination of enough malt to support ENORMOUS hop blast. Hot with alcohol and hops and I’m in the mood and I love it. yum yum yum

22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a medium sized white head with good retention. This has a wonderful aroma of floral and citrus hops, some pine, and hints of caramel. The flavor did not disappoint either. Hops dominate this one a bit, but in a good way. Perfect bitterness, grapefruit, pine, and enough sweet caramel malt to help balance things out. This is medium bodied and smooth drinking. Everything I have come to expect from the West Coast IPA/IIPA and long for here in OH.

Orange color, cloudy with small head. a hint of caramel scent. Hoppy with a dry finish. Awesome beer to drink on a warm summer day. Hop 15 is a much better IPA

One of the better ones from the evening. CLoudy orange color. This is what I think of when I think west coast IPA. Big floral aromas. Mellow bitter hop flavors. Nice grapefruit taste. Slightly sweet full bodied malt character.

Pint at PP Carlsbad with my friend, Tete. Light orange color. Small head, but nice small bubbles. Good IPA. Slightly above average score for IPAs I’ve tried lately. Very drinkable, would buy again if there isn’t something new to try.
