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.

Foxbush (1483) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2012
22oz bomber This was purchased at Whole Foods in Western Henrico. The ale poured a cloudy light amber color. The head was white froth with large bubbles and lacing. The clerk at the Whole Foods recommended the IPA. It has a clean aroma with some sweet pine and citrus. A smooth beverage with very deceptive alcohol. Could use some bitterness in the finish. The body was light and the carbonation was soft. This brewery may be worth visiting.

sloth (2625) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Medium sized tan head with fair retention and lace. Clear, copper color. Soft nose of pine and citrus, spicy. Body is medium with a soft carbonation, lil resiny and juicy. Moderately sweet malts, pine, grapefruit, earthiness. Fairly dry finish with a somewhat harsh bitterness, weird. 12oz bottle from statelineliquors.

portableparty (2025) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber with a large frothy off white head that settles to a creamy looking foam and lacing. Aroma is very malt forward with mild, but noticeable dry hops that are earthy and piny. Taste is malty caramel and biting bitterness with dry piny resinous hops and pepper. Palate is full and sticky with a chalky drying finish. Not bad, but very malt forward!

joeneugs (4143) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 12, 2012
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours an orange/gold color with an off white head. The aroma has lots of caramel, toffee and some orange citrus. The flavor has more caramel toffee, orange and subtle piney bitterness in the finish. This is bordering on American barley wine territory for me.... except for the color. Not bad, but I wouldn’t order this again.

Darwenus (634) - Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Cloudy gold colored with a small, quickly fading head. The aroma is floral hops, malt, a little citrus, and a faint tone of cooked cabbage. The taste and mouthfeel are pretty good. Rich malt, bready rye, figs and hops. A little bit of heat, but nothing outlandish. I liked this.

Excellent, up there with all the so cal best: sculpin, whipeout, green flash west coast ipa, ect. (i know, im comparing double ipa to ipa, so what).. Southern cali brewers must buy their hops at dispensaries!!! Thats the secret!! ipas from the san diego area are by far the best. I know, what about DFH? .........S.D. Ipas are better, im sorry. And furthermore..........these same people that are rating this beer between 2-3 will be the same ones that will return a year from now and rate it a 4-5, I assure you!

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2012
12oz bottle from a friend that said it was so nasty, that i had to try it. Poured golden copper with a little head. Nice piney, earthy hops and some bready malts. Decent drinking but a bit thin. Could use a little more body and more lingering hops for a DIPA. Very easy to drink though. Enjoyable

knewell (73) - Alabama, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Pours a yellow golden color. Has a citrus aroma. Has a citrus, hoppy taste that is a little bitter with a mild sweetness after the swallow. I am not a big IPA fan, but overall, not a bad beer.

Strong sour resin and citrus hop aroma. Cloudy orange color with a medium tan head. Sweet full bodied beginning with a light bitter and sweet finish.
