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.

On tap at Mission Brewery. Pours a hazy gold with a white head and aroma of hops and pine. Taste is bitter up front, of massive hops, pine, and citrus notes with a bitter, dry finish. Great DIPA

poured a foggy dark amber. aroma was not overwhelming but good nonetheless. started off feeling very well balanced but the hops bite hi hard on the finish. all in all a good beer. I’d definitely have this one again

Poured from 1 gallon growler box. Pours clear amber in color with thin white head. Aroma is alcohol and a bit of hops. Taste is slightly sweet up front with a fair amount of bitterness in the back end. Decent, but pales in comparison to some other DIPAs from SD.

baraciisch (2033) - California, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Caramel orange brown in color... Aroma is sweet citrus.... Flavor is caramel malts, toffee with finish of bitter citrus hops... Super malty for an ipa... Doesn't taste like a west coast ipa, very much east coast... Marginal at best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GhostFace (321) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2012
hazy copper in color with a foamy off white head. ok lacing throughout the glass. pine and citrus hops on the nose along with some sweet malt. taste follows the aroma but was more malty than i anticipated it to be. nice bitter finish. slightly boozy.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy copper color with a frothy off white head. Nice head retention. The nose is a touch on the boozy side with notes of resin and overripe orange. The flavor is rather malty with a quick shock of pine and resin, but the sweet malt, orange, and caramel flavors take precedence. The finish ends up rather dry due to the ABV. Thick and sticky on the palate. Overall it’s less impressive than it’s individual parts.
