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.

"this san diego dbl ipa is pretty malt sticky, but not overly so. bitter and citric hops come to play as well. big bodied and fairly dark and resinous. a good but not great 2xipa. 8/12 - significantly better fresher/on tap. big and juicy definitely getting a bump up."
