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.

Poured a cloudy apricot with a thin white head. Aroma was grapefruit malt and some pine. On the palate you get sweet fruit followed by malt and finishing with a lingering bitterness of some pine and grassy notes. Mouthfeel was medium and smooth but did have a little alcohol burn.

Pours golden orange from the bottle with a strong smell of booze and a little hops. A nice taste but the booze overpowers the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patricks110 (2233) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Pour is a bright golden orange with a few fizzy bubbles and a thin tight white head. The nose is mildly resinous with moderate pine and a solid citrus based hop, a few toasty caramel makes as well. Solid sweet mid palate with a regular San Diego style sweet smack of mild resin and s splash of citrus. full bodied and a solid moderate bitterness with a bit of alcohol presence. overall a good beer but not great.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a medium white head. Nose is hoppy and the taste is a little bit bitter, but without a lot of maltiness to it. Not a bad brew...

On tap at the brewer, pours a rusty golden yellow with a small head. Nose is citrus and pine. Taste is citrusy and bitter with NO hiding the alcohol. Finish is long and bitter. Finish is bitter sweet. Quaff Score 8 / 10

zgaier (1754) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2012
On tap at Mission Brewery. Pours a hazy gold with a white head and aroma of hops and pine. Taste is bitter up front, of massive hops, pine, and citrus notes with a bitter, dry finish. Great DIPA

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2012
poured a foggy dark amber. aroma was not overwhelming but good nonetheless. started off feeling very well balanced but the hops bite hi hard on the finish. all in all a good beer. I’d definitely have this one again

hamilton23 (619) - Alpine, California, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Poured from 1 gallon growler box. Pours clear amber in color with thin white head. Aroma is alcohol and a bit of hops. Taste is slightly sweet up front with a fair amount of bitterness in the back end. Decent, but pales in comparison to some other DIPAs from SD.

From a bottle at velvet lounge dc. Pours a hazy copper with a thin white head. Citrus and pine nose. Nice balance of spruce and orange zest. Bitter finish.

baraciisch (2468) - California, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Caramel orange brown in color... Aroma is sweet citrus.... Flavor is caramel malts, toffee with finish of bitter citrus hops... Super malty for an ipa... Doesn't taste like a west coast ipa, very much east coast... Marginal at best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
