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.

Pours orangey gold with a pillowy white head. The aroma is filled with resiny, piney hops and not much more beyond the average malty sweetness. The palate is dry, bitter, and tannic. There’s a touch of sweetness on the end, but the beer feels somewhat out of balance. I thought it was just okay.

ReggieDunlap (3071) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours a hazy amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has light tea and earthy hop notes...a bit or orange. Flavor follows suit...some fruitiness...a bit like a hoppy, bitter barleywine. Mouthfeel is medium/full and sticky with a dry, earthy bitter finish that has some oakiness.

crazyvin (1940) - New York, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Poured a dark amber hue with a beige head. Aroma had a nice mix of caramel malts, pine and grapefruit hops and an interesting coconut note to it. Flavor was well balanced a nice malt base upfront and good hop flavors. Seemed to have more of a grapefruit note than pine, which I normally prefer. Finish was slightly dry and the body was smooth and full. A good double IPA. Alcohol seemed well hidden.

theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Pours a clear, somewhat dark copper with a fair white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops, some caramel. Interesting flavor, citrus and pine hops, caramel, some malts, some alcohol burn in finish.

hivemind (709) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Tap @ Valhalla w E. Pours a bright red-amber with fairly big off-white head that leaves random lacing. Aroma is strong earthy notes and hops. Palate is just the opposite with a malt-forward, bready, earthy base and light caramel, floral and fruity notes to compliment early on. Thickens and gets earthier as it goes along. Could not finish the tulip.

greenhorn1 (812) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 27, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange, thin head, tons of lacing. Aroma is very fruity. Flavor is malty and sweet. In addition, it is floral and "perfumey". ABV well hidden, and a short bitter lingerness. I like my dipa’s more hoppy and not so sweet.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle. Coppery amber with a medium, foamy tan head. Aroma is soft pine, big caramel, sweet malt, and soft citrus. Definitely not the hop bomb their IPA is, at least aroma-wise. Taste is big malt, caramel, soft pine, citrus notes, spicy hops and soft booze. Body is medium-full and rather chewy with a creamy, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more soft pine, caramel, chewy malt, spicy hop notes, light floral hops and soft alcohol. The regular IPA is a hop bomb. This isn’t and I can see why this may disappoint but I enjoyed it for what it was - a tasty beer!

blankboy (6051) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2012
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a slightly hazy orange-copper with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, tropical fruit, rye bread, citrus hops, alcohol and light spices -- sweeter and maltier then expected but good. Flavour of bready caramel malt, pine and citrus hops, fruit, some sugar, alcohol and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Sweeter then I like my DIPAs, and not quite hoppy enough, but still pretty good.
