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.

jsporrer (714) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Pours a dark orange rust color with a thin white head. Some pine and malts in the aroma. Malty flavors with just a hint of bitterness. Fairly enjoyable. Reminds me of Weyerbacher Double Simcoe.

zoucrew102 (1377) - - AUG 28, 2016
Bomber, thanks Christina! Caramel malt aroma with pine and citrus hop notes. Pours cloudy amber colored with a large off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet caramel malt and some citrus hop flavors. Finishes dry and bitter with big pine resiny hoppiness and bitterness that coats the palate. Pretty good, but a little bitter on the finish.

Bawelt (551) - Lyon, FRANCE - AUG 25, 2016
Nez étrange, très porté sur le barley wine, assez caramélisé. Un fond légèrement amer et orangé. Bouche à l’attaque ronde et maltée très vite coupée par un amertume forte mais pauvre aromatiquement. Le tout est assez sirupeux, prend bien le palais et permet une jolie longueur dans l’amertume. Très unilatéral et un peu bourrin.

Taschert (11) - FRANCE - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Pours orange-red with a small white head. Aroma is malted, hoppy and spicy. A very early bitterness with a fruity hint. Overall an aggresive beer, with a long lasting bitterness. [08/2016]

kaserov (184) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2016
Color anaranjado oscuro con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio, un dedo de grosor. Poca carbonatación. Restos de levadura, imagino. Olor a maltas y lúpulos, super concentrado. El sabor sigue al olor, con el típico amargor final. Decente.

maley1 (1169) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 8, 2016
Slightly hazy dark orange pour with large creamy head. Aroma of caramel malts, pine, fruit and hops. Taste of caramel malts, toffee, orange fruit, grapefruit, pine and massive hops. Full bodied, medium carbonation, heavy hop finish. A hop lovers dream, a little too much for me though.

Moolesen (477) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2016
Bottle 35,5cl. Dark orange with a small off white head. Malty aroma with some hops in the background. Strong taste, where the alcohol is clearly present. Medium length

Plovmand (7852) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle. It pours hazy amber with a creamy off white head. The aroma is biscuit malty with berry like and floral hoppy notes. Light sweet marmalade. Creamy malty flavor with citrus and floral hoppy notes. Sweet toffee notes with biscuit and marmalade. Really tasty and even though it’s to the sweet side the floral and berry parts are very well joined up here. Lovely. No sign at all of the high abv.
