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.

Definitely a bold, brazen double IPA. Cloudy Amber. A little too bitter, not enough malty smoothness.

Bottle. Orange, apricot., and biscuity caramel malt aroma. Hazy orange with a small off-white head. Caramel malt, orange peel, and piney hops flavor. Medium to full, slightly sticky body, moderate carbonation.

islay (1525) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2013
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 4-19-13. Sweet aroma features muffin, port, cookie, toffee, brownie, golden raisin, and caramel scents. Smells much more like a typical barley wine than a typical double IPA. Pours a hazy, effervescent, golden copper. Moderate amount of yellow/golden-taupe head. Produces good lacing. Initially dry but ultimately quite sweet taste features apricot, brown sugar, toffee, cookie, and biscuit flavors. Medium body. Silky and lively in the palate. Palate effects do not stand out. Overall, this seems much more like a barley wine than an IPA. Regardless of the style, it’s a good beer. 8/4/8/3/15=>3.8

maneliquor (3474) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Awesome label but the final product is a little disappointing. Smells like dried apricot and a touch of booze. Taste has all the apricot in it with some heavy caramel. Booze comes through too much in this one. Not my kind of IPA at all

Kroney (209) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours dark orange with a thin tan head. Citrus(oranges) and caramel malt dominate the nose, with a hints of pine, alcohol and bread. Flavor is mOre malt than hops, but finishes very bitter and wade from the alcohol. Good beer not great.

This is a huge beer. Poured from 12 oz bottle. Dark orange and clear with hardly any head. Grapefruit aroma. Big pallette. Citrus and syrupy. Just a big IPA. Pretty good

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 (2557) - 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.
