COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Dammed Double IPA has more hops than logs in a dam! Yet, you would never know it. This beer carries all of the spicy and earthy complexity that hops offers without the harsh bitterness. With a clean finish, this beer is proof that God loves you, and He wants you to be happy.

GenkiGonzo (619) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 20, 2015
Bomber from ABC Stores in Waikiki. Dirty copper with minimal head. Bright orange hop aroma with resin behind it. Flavour is well-balanced with a super fresh orange hit that lingers, almost like a chocolate orange liqueur, but not cloying.

GenDV138 (3367) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2015
22 oz bottle shared by a friend. Mostly clear amber with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, slight booze, light pine and floral. Tastes of citrus, caramel, malt, booze, floral. Medium body with a dry and warm finish. Malty mouthfeel. Alcohol is not too well masked.

SDalkoholic (2232) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Sprout’s: Created a thick development of foam head that was similar to shaving cream foam. Liquid appeared a hazy golden wild honey colored hue. Aroma is bold with a fragrant blend of fruity hops that suggest sweet peach, apricot, pear scents then finishes with notes of earthy pine and citrus hops with a heavy malt bread backing. Can’t remember the last time I smelt a beer this good since Stone Arrogant Bastard or an Ale Smith recipe--which is a compliment all around. The drink is well-balanced but I predict that it has had a few months shelf life and has the syrupy base of bready malts has softened the bitter hop bite that I assume this Impy IPA intended to have. Moderately sweet with a very sticky residue around the lips. Must have tasted amazing when fresh. Will have to re-visit the Damned Belching Beaver.

On tap at Surfside Tap Room in Oceanside. Bad, cloudy yeasty mess. Rubber band with some hops. Phenolic bitter and just kinda yuk. May be lines badly cleaned...will try at brewery for better example.

Pretty good IPA, your typical cascade like grassy aroma, nicely carbonated, hop flavor good. Not great but not meh.

On tap at Belching Beaver taproom in Vista, CA. Hazy, dull copper with a dusty yellow head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, pine and caramel. Taste of beautifully blended hop flavors including tropical fruit, citrus and pine, on a caramel base. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ibrew2or3 (7489) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 24, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear copper body that supports a dirty white head that leaves behind a bit of sheet lacing. The aroma offers up sweet candied tangerine, sweetened pineapple and then a sliver or two of pine hops. The taste begins with sweet malts and some sweetened grapefruit and tangerine like citrus hops and then it quickly flows into more and more bitter citrus hop bitterness lined with a sliver of resiny pine like hop notes. It gets a bit sweeter into the finish but maintains a nice hoppy edge all the way through.

It poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma was of pine with some grapefruit and toast. The taste was of bitter hops with pine, resin, grapefruit and a caramel malt base. Not my favorite DIPA, but decent.
