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 Vintner. My girlfriend had this, so I drank some of hers. She was fond of it; I was not. Run of the mill double IPA with a cool label. Yellowish color with a white head. Fruity, floral hop aroma. Taste is kind of bitter, somewhat hoppy, with kind of a stale taste. She liked it, so whatever. It wasnt as "refreshing" as double IPA’s usually are.

22oz bottle - Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off white head and plenty of lacing. Nose is spicy hops, sweet, candies, pine, citrus, and floral. Flavor is sweet with caramel and plenty of hops, citrus and pine to go around. Full bodied, floral bitter finish.

An overrated double IPA, I think. For me the flavors did not mesh, just kind of a shipwreck of a beer, actually.

Bottle. Strong citrus and flowers throughout the sip. Bitter overtones dominate the entire experience. Nice.

Bomber pours clear deep gold with off white head. The aroma is a mix of grapefruit, tangelo, citrus cotton candy sweetness, pears and faint pineapple followed by some spicy hops that poke up near the end of the draw. The taste is juicy grapefruit and tangelo goodness followed by muted mango tropical like notes and then a modest level of resiny hop bitterness. This is an easy drinkin’ IIPA.

Sampled on 1/29/2011. This Imperial IPA pours a medium copper orange color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing and nice retention. The aroma is grapefruity, citrusy, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity, sweet and caramel. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. Nice balance between the malts and hops. Decent carbonation. A medium bitterness IPA. It is almost a west coast style IPA, but the hops are not that much of an in your face assault. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.
