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.

Poured from the bottle, really orange color, thin head. Aroma is hoppy, and kind of woody. Flavors are complex, in the beginning I got licorice, at the end I get a dry asprin taste. Not really the best dipa out there.

Zymurgeist2 (1016) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 6, 2011
the alcohol is a little too hot here, including some presence on the aroma. slight citrus smell on the end of the aroma. clear deep orange with white head that is full of small bubbles. palate is too tannic from the bitterness, and again the floral and citrus come through late. nice dry finish with sweet malt lingering late.

Bottle. Copper-amber with ok head. Strong hoppy aroma holds promise. Woody and dry with big alcohol presence. Got to love your wood.

tricyclist (752) - Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark straw/beautiful gold. Smells of nice hops, good bitterness with a light sweetness. Flavor has sweetness to it but also a good bitter quality that’s definitely noticeable. Aroma is coming out earthy now, light grassy quality. Lacing is nice for a IIPA

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours brown, with dark orangey/red highlights, with a medium creamy yellowish tan head that leaves rings of creamy lacing. Aromas of sweet citrus peel (grapefruit), citrus and alcohol, caramel, tropical fruit, and alcohol-soaked cherry. The flavor is sweet papaya and mango, sugary pine, and tart citrus rind. The finish is sugary fruit and bitter earthy cocoa with some dirt. Low carbonation and medium/full body, creamy, and warming. A sweet dIPA with a lingering bitter finish; tasty. [857]

Much better as this warmed, on tap at The Blue Tusk. Sweeter initially before bitterness builds up. Drying finish. Very fresh. Great thick lace.

r464 (1927) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Standard IPA aroma with a hoppy floral flavor that leads to a strong finish. The alcohol content is well masked.

evergreen0199 (2013) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2011
On tap at Barcade, Brooklyn, New York, NY. An amber/gold coloured pour with a small white head on top. Hoppy, caramel aroma. Tastes hoppy, caramel, sweet, bitter, slightly sticky in the American DIPA way. Barman said it was the best beer on tap that day so I checked it out. Really nice stuff, I guzzled 2 pints of it.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2011
22 oz. bottle - from Plaza Liquors - Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a half finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is resin, pine, and herbal hops with a touch of steamed veggies. Flavor is the same as the aroma with the addition of some lightly sweetened malt. The bitterness lingers in the finish. Medium to full body. The bottled version, which I am rating, is not quite as good as the draft version I had a couple months ago. Since I can’t find my notes on the draft version, the bottled will have to do. Anyways... This is a decent beer.
