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.

earthy grassy hop aroma with caramellish malts apparent as well.slight hint of fruittiness...looks nice..dark orange clear color with creamy off white head..the taste is where the hops really start to dominate..citrus,piney,resiny spicy and peppery the maltiness appears as it warms very well done.very substantial..that first sip is a hop monster however..pretty thick and creamy for the type as well goes down easy and quickly with a lingering bitter aftertaste..will be buying this one again

Hazy golden orange pour white sticky head ... citrusy and grainy hop aroma .... taste of lots of sugar and citrusy light piney hops .... a bitter hop mouthfeel with a dry hop finish .... not a bad double sugar totally masks the abv ... a very drinkable double ipa not bad

On draft at Capones. Pours a clear coppery orange vistalite with a frosty medium sized off white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, pineapple and hops. Taste of fresh pine resin, pineapple, grapefruit and hops. Superb.

My comrades have rated this lower than I and I am not sure why. A nice citrus and pine aroma from an amber pour with a very thin head. Pine a citrus with a malt sweetness in the flavor. Very nice and long lasting after taste. Quite nice.

Amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, caramel malts, overripe fruits, some citrus. Taste of citrus, pine, metal, cardboard, and a bitter finish.

Draft at Capone’s with Dallas and Linh. Pours a clear gold with a slight haze. Aroma is sweet malty hop that lends in giving the beer a smooth mouthfeel inviting flavors of sweet juicy citrus and pine hop.

can8ianben (1315) - Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Tasty malt-forward double IPA. Subtle pine/citrus aroma wafts up from a frothy head perched on a amber colored liquid. Strongly bitter, leaning more toward a massive British beer rather than its California counterparts.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Clear muted gold with a big tan head. Aroma is rather faint with a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is sweet and alcoholic with roasty notes equal in prominence to hope notes, with the exception of big ruby red grapefruit into the finish. $7/22oz

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Pours orange with minimal white lace. Nose of citrus and resinous pine, some sweet malts, light alcohol. Flavor takes a backseat to aroma, starts bitter with some sweetness in the middle with a bitter finish. Just not all that well balanced/meshed.

Tap at Capones. Pours a hazed bright orange with a nice sticky resinous off white head. Aroma is nice citrus hops, but lots of sweet pale malts, carapils and some caramel in there- some pine and light tropical fruit. Flavor is a bit too sweet overall , especially in the finish when the sweetness turns to almost a corn syrup flavor and consistency- ok amounts of hops, but it just needs more- some pine hints, and mango with light citrus- clean overall, but just not where it needs to be for a DIPA.
