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.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
[Bottle] Clear golden appearance, decent head formation. Pineapple and grapefruit hop aroma, sweet crystal sugar malts. Sweet candy like sugar malts at the front end turns to a spicy grapefruit citrus, with some sweet pineapple juice balance. Big on the hops and big on the alcohol but surprisingly well balanced too.

Aroma of floral hops and sweet caramel notes. The taste is very bitter hops with citrus and resin notes and a malty finish. Medium bodied.

DocLock (8667) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours clear early season hay color with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is hot, resiny hoppy, spirity. Tastes hoppy, fruity, resiny, hot, perhaps a bit malt light. Comes off a bit like Hog Heaven, with a spirity hoppy profile. Brazen and big, indeed, and truly a beer that matches the Pirate skull label.

On tap; color was a rich-amber color with not much head. Aroma of fruit, citrus, earth, and a bit of flowers. Flavor of earth and fruit dominate; alcohol strong presence. Good stuff.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Pours clear copper orange with small quickly dissapating whitish head. Aroma sweet syrupy oranges with green grapes and grapefruit and tad bit of black cherry - slight medicine smell. Heavy mouthfeel. Flavor sweet rummy candy up front, bit of piney bitterness with dry medicinl finish. Overall, decent but a bit out of balance.

Terminus (3381) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2011
bottle-pours bright orange with a very small fizzy white head around the rim of the glass. pretty lightly carbonated. nose is kind of off to me-lite hops, sugar, fussel alcohol, lite resin. nothing i really like in a IIPA. almost smells like a lite barleywine. flavors of fussel alcohol, resin, sugar cookie, lite pine and resin, but mostly on the finish. there is really no hop profile that sets thing thing off. A high ABV IIPA with no real identity. really hot finish of alcohol and pine. i feel like im breathing fire! palate seems to be thin, which may cause the issue of too much beer, not enough flavor or identity. Need ALOT of work to compete with the awesome IIPA’s just up the road.

Bottle from JohnCoctsin. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear light amber color with a single-finger white head that leaves some nice spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries plenty of bready malt and some light caramel. Hops? Nope. The flavor is bread and some very light caramel and sweetness. Bread crust is the most apt deScription. Hops? Nope. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation. Bitterness? Nope. Three strikes. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-17-2011
