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.

Bottle. Pours amber with a slight haze and creamy, off-white head. Aroma is pine and grassy hops, toasted and biscuit malts, herbs, and light fruit. Flavor is competing hop bitterness and lightly sweet, bready malts with some light citrus esters and faint herbs; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

pintbypint (3269) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
650ml brown bottle. Orange pour, thin beige head and light lacing. Nose has sweet and perfumery orange/citrus hops, a little pine and some alcohol. Taste has a bunch of hops - piney, orange and grapefruits with some malt sweetness. Lengthy finish with pithy citrus and pine and a bit of an alcohol burn. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Pretty nice.

Ferris (10771) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle - Heavy pine and malts with a bit of booze. Clear orange with almost no head. Very resinous, with a nice balance of malt but the alcohol is evident and burns. I like the balance, and it is a bit spicy with a boozy burn which gives it an interesting taste, but there are so many better in this style.

reebtogi (5399) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
650ml bottle pours a golden amber color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine hops with some tropical fruits. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a fruity and malty sweetness. Flavors are well balanced. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very well done and highly recommended.

radio_nowhere (1342) - Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle into snifter glass. Orange’ish-amber color with white head. Aroma of citrus/piney hops and sweet caramel malt, smells more malty then hoppy. Taste tilts things in a more hoppy direction, pretty piney/resiny balanced a little too heavy towards that sweet caramel malt. Heavy body, low carbonation, sweet, syrupy with a lingering bitter finish. Not sure how much age this has on it, more malt leaning then I care for but pretty good.

jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Overwhelming citrus and pine notes on this one with a pretty sweet malt backbone. The malt profile is clean without much contribution to the flavor of the beer with the exception of the sweetness. The hops take charge, but possibly too much. This beer is left being a hop bomb without enough complexity to really stand up to so many other DIPAs.

PorterPounder (6976) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparking dark orange/medium copper. light off-white head that sticks around a while - leaves a nice coat of lacing. Aroma has some sweet doughy accents, some piney essence. Flavor is full-bodied with plenty of fresh hoppy grapefruity goodness with some maple syrup and passion fruit thrown in there for good measure. Sweet doughy accents in the back end with a hint of vanilla. Sticky thick mouthfeel. Nice to see this brewer making its way into this area.

Slipstream (2381) - USA - JUN 25, 2013
Light, citrusy floral aroma on this full-flavored, big IPA. It is pretty malty and sweet for the style, but there are plenty of hops too - and some peat smoke and green peppers. The finish has a little lingering, dry bitterness. Very good.

spittle8 (132) - California, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Pine hop and malt aroma, light body and medium head. Aftertaste ranges from cereals to soap. Easy drinking for nearly 10%. Sweet malt and piney hops.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Draft at Proof. Deep golden pour with a white head. Sweet kind of sugary, boozy aroma with caramel malts and pine hops. Sweet, syrupy maltiness, caramel, piney and hint of lemon bitterness in the end. Meh.
