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.

The aroma is nice with good hop balance. Yeast contribution is acceptable, slightly fruity. But the lasting impression is the bitter finish. It ’s too much.

23/XII/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle from Healthy Spirits (CA, USA) @ home - BB: n/a, bottled: n/a (2014-1529) Thanks to Dieter A. for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy dark orange beer, big creamy yellowish irregular head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: some citrus, piny, dusty, spicy notes, bit of honey. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus, bitter, grassy, some almonds and marzipan. Aftertaste: very bitter, resinous, dry, some honey, sugary touch, caramel, bit soapy, malty. Probably much better fresh, but no date to be found on label or bottle. Thus allowing shop keepers to have shelf turds like this one. Smart move, Mission!

Bottle @ First Official Randers Tasting. Pours slightly hazy amber with small off-white head. Intense hoppy and citric flavour with notes of needles. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with citric notes and touches of malt and yeast. Fruity hints. Bitter and estery aftertaste. Okay, decent but rather aggressive.

JonMoore (1922) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Quart can from Ales by Mail - hazy amber with thick off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel malts. Nice balance of flavours, grapefruit, orange, pine, spice, smooth malts, caramel. Good sweet bitter thing going on. Medium to full bodied, some alcohol warmth, nice long bitter finish. Well balanced DIPA.

Ctplt777 (224) - - JAN 1, 2015
Pine and Citrus dominate the aroma on this one. Big slap of hop bitterness when you take a sip. Really hoppy. A very solid double ipa, you can always count on a brewery in San Diego to nail the style.
