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.

Tselloufc88 (153) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
946ml can from Petaluma Market. How big is this can?!?! Anyway the beer.... Light Brown, looks like weak tea. Big white head. Aroma is of sweets and pine. Bitter start, grapefruit centre with a fair bit of malt present. Massively bitter finish which stays with you. Very alcoholic, still tasty but lacks a bit of hop balance. Decent enough though.

From a bottle. Cloudy copper colour with a orange white head, big floral aroma, huge fruity citrus flavours with a big warming slug from the huge alcohol content.

stevoj (2243) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Nice sharply bitter ale with abundant fluffy head. Hoppy aroma, some pine, some grapefruit. Taste is pure up front hops, tingling on the tongue, bitter abrupt hops finish, with tongue still tingling.

mjs (4640) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Kitty’s, 20140625) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tangerine, alcohol and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, alcohol, tangerine, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, boozy and bitter. A boozier version of the PA of the same brewery. Lacking balance.

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle at Beer Hunters. Slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma has citrus, some a bit overriped fruits. Medium-bodied. Fruiys, mango, citrus, even a bit fruit liquerish flavor. Covers alcohol nicely.

Moebbels (340) - FINLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Pours a fairly clear orange body with a swiftly settling white head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has sweet aromas of caramel, rapeseed, pine needles and some resin. Taste is quite sweet, which softens the blow of an extremely smooth bitterness that stays lingering on the palate. Carbonation is quite soft and the mouthfeel is rich and creamy. This is quite good, the sweetness balances this nicely so its not just a hoppy punch in the face.
