Assertive and drinkable. Double IPA is California’s gift to beer lovers. Ours is brewed with four distinctly American hops: Centennial, Citra, Columbus and Simcoe, all beautifully balanced by five malts and generous additions of local orange blossom honey. An intense sensory experience — the fresh aroma of citrus, pine and grapefruit with the bold taste of hops and sweet honey. Additional Information: This beer was first brewed to celebrate American Craft Beer Week in 2010. The Double IPA style is distinctly American, and so are the flavors of the specific hops used. This beer was an instant hit (Southern Californians do love their hops!) and we plan on brewing it throughout the year whenever our production schedule allows it.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, orange color with a nice, frothy head. Tangy aroma with some grapefruit in the background. Nice, hoppy taste. Kind of chewy. But good tart in there. Not complex. Decent brew.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Aromas of berries, grass, hints of honey. Taste goes bitter, and lasts very long.

highibus (780) - Vail, Arizona, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Light straw color with bright white head. Nice tropical aroma from the hops. Up front this beer is bitter but not too much. Lighter malts let the hops shine. Hides it’s 9% alcohol. There is a hint of honey as well and a nice lingering hop finish. Nice dipa.

Dogbrick (11179) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Sample at the taproom. Hazy bright golden color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and pine notes, and some malt in the background. Medium to full body with a piney hops character and flavors of grapefruit and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bottle. Pours clear light golden with lots of head and lacing. Nose is tropical fruit and sweet malt. Taste is also nice malt with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Great.

Draft. Served in improper glassware. Still pretty rich hazelnut aroma. Dense lace. Flavors of nut brittle, hemp seed, and a whiff of guava pith. Maybe a hint of orange too. Surprisingly pithy finish. Still, an absolute winner.

Bomber on my daughters patio (Laguna Niguel) on 24th May 2015. Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Hops rule the roost here, citrus, tropical fruits in the aroma a bitter bite in the taste. I couldn’t find any honey sweetness, or presence at all in either the nose or flavour. Decent though and certainly a hop forward brew. Alcohol hidden nicely by the depth of hop flavours.
