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.

A golden amber color and very clean. The aroma is floral and piney and some malt character is coming out. The flavor is piney as well, but not overly astringent as I find piney beer to be. There is a medium to medium low body with a biscuity malt flavor perceptible underneath. It is nice and creamy, but the piney aftertaste is throwing me off. It also finished a tad dry.

Cask at RnH. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of acetone, hop oils, sweet caramel malt. Flavor of sweet caramel malt, citrusy fruits, hop oils, grassy hops. Pretty strong with alcohol dominant. Just ok. 7/4/7/3/14 (3.5/5)

Dogbrick (9619) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2011
The beer is a copper-orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops, malt and caramel. Medium body with flavors of piney hops, citrus and grainy malt, plus a bit of tropical fruit. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruit and caramel aftertaste. Above average overall.

Voodoo (448) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Taste is almost tart, with a bitterness appearing late in the very thick offering which hides the alcohol well. Overdoses the tastebuds a bit. Definitely something which may have a one or two per session limit both for it’s high alcohol and overwhelming taste.

Leafs93 (1896) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Pours orange amber with a white head that quickly dissipated to a film. Aroma is florals, pine, citrus and just a hint of caramel. Taste is bittersweet with the bitterness lingering on the.finish. Slick mouthfeel with medium body. Alcohol is hidden well. Overall I enjoyed the bitters and how they stuck around.

cfrancis (2731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
Pours a clear dark golden yellow with a thin fizzy white head and good lacing. Aroma is big pine hops and sweet hop. Taste is a beautiful blast of pine hops, great bitterness and sweet malts that balance this out. Great beer.

jkwood04 (4812) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 5, 2011
12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of citrusy/piney hops plus some caramel and light cereal malts. Flavor about the same, but it seems lighter on the hops than the aroma suggests. Average texture. A decent beer, but not the best of the style.

Nice double IPA from this smal brewery. Sticky and sweet with a taste that lingers. Good hop array, nice beer.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2011
Hazy orange with a medium white head. A lot of pine and caramel, light touch of red fruits. Quite bitter ending.

scarletfire65 (1127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Full bodied and sticky feeling. Very sweet malt base, with floral and fruity hop bitterness. Pineapple, mango, apricot flavors. The finish is big and powerful, slightly medicinal, with a nice hoppy bitterness, but a little too sweet, and it takes away from the hop character.
