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.

Majin (256) - West Des Moines, Iowa, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is sweet and buttery, with lots of hops. Taste is sweet and sticky, with pine and light grass hops. Long, sweet and slick finish, with a big thick body. Perhaps this one wasn’t the freshest as I got it from the mix-6 section, but not sure. Just too sweet and sticky for my tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the 12 oz bottle. Pours a light brown with a thin white head. Big sticky malt body with a pungent resin hop taste. Big citrus and pine hop aroma, rather dank. Nice stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ed5388 (2452) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear dark amber color with one finger of slightly off white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt, and some pine. Taste is very sweet malt with citrus almost being put in the background.

b3shine (6265) - Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent dark orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells of sweet malt and hops (in that order. Tastes like it smells with an averafe mouthfeel. Okay beer, but nothing special.

notalush (5234) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2013
Hazy dark copper - low carbonation, oily texture - a lot or orange character throughout, but more like orange floor cleaner - a lot of butter in the nose and quite a bit in the flavor as well - abrasive throughout - very sweet - messy, and disappointing considering the quality of the ipa.

ADfan (648) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Beer has a honey amber color with a small head. Aroma of tropical and fruit and some honey. Taste has resin, hops and some caramel. Rather unique taste for a DIPA.

Bottle. Orange and peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large head. Sweet orange and strong bitter orange peel flavor. Nice body.

swright752 (19) - - APR 6, 2013
Great aroma citrus, pine and grass notes. Clear golden color. Alcohol a little overwhelming in the taste, but citrus and some malt notes pull through. Very thick on the palate for the style. Overall a good Imperial IPA.

adnielsen (9891) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2013
Tap @ Black Bottle Fort Collins. Pours a fairly clear, dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Mild veggie, green herbal hoppy, tangy unpleasant aroma. Kind of goopy sweet malty, orange juice, garbage flavor. Not very good.
