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.

Definitely a bold, brazen double IPA. Cloudy Amber. A little too bitter, not enough malty smoothness.

Padron4KM (667) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2015
12 oz bottle.
Clear amber, short lived two finger head, very little lace.
Sweet caramel malt aroma, followed by ruby red grapefruit, and some earthiness.
Flavor is sweet, sticky, caramel, grapefruit, pine, and a big blast of alcohol. Decent flavors going on, but the alcohol burn is distracting.

Psytron (1584) - Turku, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2015

BeerRenter76 (291) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 9/21/14. Body is a murky copper/ burnt orange color. The head starts of with a finger of nice white froth but recedes quickly to a thin ring. Aromas of citrus and earthy hops with plenty of sweetbread malts. Flavor has lots of sweetness upfront with the piney citrus hops bringing the balance.

Delicious beer. Pours a nice light brown color but the flavor is hoppy and darker than expected.

markextrae (2146) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle at home. Exported to the netherlands. Poured a dark orange to amber colour with a slightly off head. Nose of peaches, sweet caramel, malts, biscuits, grapefruit, and pine hops. A spicy alcoholic aftertaste wich is quite bad, and unbalanced because of it.

Finwe (420) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Draught at Cosmic Comic Cafe, Turku. Hazy orange with off-white head. Weak fruity and hoppy aroma. Bitter flavour with some malt and a hint of alcohol. Bitter, somewhat fruity finish. I actually expected something more.

Turboninja (216) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle@Maja/Talo, Tampere, Finland. Medium/strong aroma with sweet fruits, caramel and a hint of sourness. Orange/yellow color with small white head and hazy liquid. Strong, full taste of sweet almost overage peach and sour notes giving some dryness to sweet overall taste. Some pine and alcohol. Medium taste spectrum and long, hoppy bit alcoholic fruity notes. Bit unbalanced. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall strong performance with bitter and somewhat tangled twist.

josanguapo (264) - SPAIN - MAY 8, 2015
Sabe a detergente. Casi es un veneno. Demasiado alcohol. Dificil terminarsela. Tuve que hacer gran esfuerzo por no tirarla por el fregadero

Linnet (1313) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
Malty, caramelly, butterscotch, grapefruity, resinous hops, amber colour, beige head, lacing. Heavy sweetness big bite, lightly salty, unrefined, and crude, yet very Rewarding. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, sweet and bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Had at the brewery 7/15. I love DIPA but I really couldn’t get into this beer. The boozyness and the hoppiness just didn’t blend together well this time. Maybe I’ll give this one another shot in the future.
