COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A style of beer curiously born on the foggy shores of Father Junipero Serra’s first founding mission. Our own vigorous entry is one rebellious IPA, quick on the trigger, and brimming with a bounty of hop ingenuity. This is a big, bold, brazen beer, a restless vision of a new America.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Man this thing great. Really handcrafted taste here. A soft mellow honey flavor to balance out the beautiful bouquet of hops. Wow wow wow. One of the best. Really it’s almost a barleywine. Barley wine sweetness. This is a badass beer man.

Bawelt (512) - Lyon, FRANCE - AUG 25, 2016
Nez étrange, très porté sur le barley wine, assez caramélisé. Un fond légèrement amer et orangé. Bouche à l’attaque ronde et maltée très vite coupée par un amertume forte mais pauvre aromatiquement. Le tout est assez sirupeux, prend bien le palais et permet une jolie longueur dans l’amertume. Très unilatéral et un peu bourrin.

Taschert (11) - FRANCE - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Pours orange-red with a small white head. Aroma is malted, hoppy and spicy. A very early bitterness with a fruity hint. Overall an aggresive beer, with a long lasting bitterness. [08/2016]

kaserov (109) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2016
Color anaranjado oscuro con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio, un dedo de grosor. Poca carbonatación. Restos de levadura, imagino. Olor a maltas y lúpulos, super concentrado. El sabor sigue al olor, con el típico amargor final. Decente.

maley1 (1116) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 8, 2016
Slightly hazy dark orange pour with large creamy head. Aroma of caramel malts, pine, fruit and hops. Taste of caramel malts, toffee, orange fruit, grapefruit, pine and massive hops. Full bodied, medium carbonation, heavy hop finish. A hop lovers dream, a little too much for me though.

Moolesen (470) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2016
Bottle 35,5cl. Dark orange with a small off white head. Malty aroma with some hops in the background. Strong taste, where the alcohol is clearly present. Medium length

Plovmand (7811) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle. It pours hazy amber with a creamy off white head. The aroma is biscuit malty with berry like and floral hoppy notes. Light sweet marmalade. Creamy malty flavor with citrus and floral hoppy notes. Sweet toffee notes with biscuit and marmalade. Really tasty and even though it’s to the sweet side the floral and berry parts are very well joined up here. Lovely. No sign at all of the high abv.

dnstone (2608) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Pours a copper-amber color with soft off-white head. Syrupy hoppy-pine aroma. Balanced, but hop-forward....clean but there is a lingering sticky piney-hop flavor.

Brown red color with foam layer. Forest hoppy nose. Very creamy and oily feeling with a dry and foresty hoppy bitter and light tart taste. Dry and bitter aftertaste.

12fl oz bottle at home from Kaapse Brouwers, Rotterdam. Nose is tropical fruits, citrus, hint of champagne. Body is hazy orange, head is small, beige, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruits, milk chocolate, light bonbon, raisin. Medium sweet, light bitter, light fruity and citric sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy medium to heavy bitter, short lasting light sour, hint of salt, light alcohol warmth. Full body, thick texture, average carbonation. Not quite easy, very flavorful, nice one.
