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.

On tap at Mad Mex Robinson. Blah. This is everything an IIPA should not be. The aroma was weak. Grainy with a hint of gasoline. Pour was a flat light brown with no head or bubbles. Taste was a nasty mix of sweet caramel, iced tea and just a hint of grassy and earthy hops. Not hoppy by any means and the malt is too sugary and has a burnt like quality. Hardly any carbonation. Drinkable but that’s it

obguthr (3650) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle at Butters’ Slutfest: Orange peel, rosehip, and tea. Clear amber, thin head. Overripe orange flavor. Simple, and rather average.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Hoppy aroma with sweet malts, piney, and herbal notes. The flavor is fairly well balanced, with floral and light piney hops and sweet caramel malt. Not bad.

Butters (3733) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2011
Sampled at Slutfest 2.0. Typical double ipa. Good. Sweet. crisp. citrus. hops. I did like this one a good bit. A little much alcohol heat though.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2011
UPDATED: APR 25, 2014 transparent orange-amber dusty. Heavy caramel nose and flavor, sweet orange dusty, nail polish, heavy sugar throughout, not much heat but way too sweet. Everything I dislike about IIPA.

allison (2) - Alabama, USA - APR 22, 2011 does not count
This not only smells like cheap American Lager (my first thought was something like Budweiser or Coors Light, but in all honesty I haven’t had one of those in so long I’m not sure which it more resembles). No citrus or spice nose, no great aroma. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this was really disappointing. Tried something new and just as local, but should’ve just stuck with the awesome Port Brewing Mongo instead. The only redeeming factor is its alcohol content.

GT2 (8242) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 18, 2011
651mL. The pour is a hazed light orange with bubble forming but not much of a head. Aroma is cheesy hops, lemon, strawberry. Taste is syrupy sweet, big spicy hops, orange candy. Palate is syrupy sweet. I will just continue to hate on DIPAs since they have a shelf life of about two weeks. Date your bottles!

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2011
22oz bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet caramel malty nose with a good amount of citrusy hops. Starts with good fullness and chewy pale malty sweetness with some resiny hoppy balance before a drier, slightly warming bittersweet finish. Has a lot of hops and sweet malt, but could be a little more balanced.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2011
Sweet and sugary nose with lots of citrus. Taste is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, lots of cotton candy, lots of caramel, lots of tangerine and grapefruit.

BeerandBlues2 (9425) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2011
Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toast), heavy hops (floral, pine, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of alcohol, apricot, and pineapple. Flavor is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toast), heavy hops (floral, pine, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of alcohol, apricot, and pineapple. Medium-full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a sweet texture and dry finish.
