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.

Quart can from Ales by Mail - hazy amber with thick off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel malts. Nice balance of flavours, grapefruit, orange, pine, spice, smooth malts, caramel. Good sweet bitter thing going on. Medium to full bodied, some alcohol warmth, nice long bitter finish. Well balanced DIPA.

Pine and Citrus dominate the aroma on this one. Big slap of hop bitterness when you take a sip. Really hoppy. A very solid double ipa, you can always count on a brewery in San Diego to nail the style.

Big can. The smell is hops, piney, malt, caramel, resin, and grass. The look is copper in color, beige colored head, and clear. The taste is grassy, resin, caramel, stale, hops, and decent.

Peter_L (951) - SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2014
Lätt spritig doft som troligen beror på kylan. Efter ett tag bättrar den sig och fram kliver brödig doft med härliga humlearomer. Inget skvallrar om den morrande humlebeskan. En snabb klunk och odjuret kommer fram från lyan. Attacken går snabbt och skoningslöst och ger sig på gom och svalg. Ett bestialiskt angrepp på smaklökarna. Efteråt när lugnet återvänt står glaset kvar. Tystnad, stillhet.

32oz can. Pours an amber color with a foamy cream colored head. Piney citrusy aroma. Very hoppy and bitter, citrusy and pine on the palate. Long bitter finish. Pretty good.

Burk. Svag doft som följs av en ganska alkoholstinn smak. Finns en hel del maltighet i smaken också. Bäst med denna öl är den balanserade beskan.

Tsekouratos (411) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - NOV 24, 2014
355 ml bottle @ The Local Pub, Athens Greece. Amber color, hazy with a nice off-white head. Aromas of pine, lemon, orange. Taste is bitter and hoppy at first with pine, lemon, orange, grapefruit and caramel sweetness as a backbone. Medium body with low to medium carbonation. Greatly balanced and really good.
