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.

Bottled. Pours a brownish gold, low head and lacing. Pleasant aroma of raisins and grass, with alcohol smell thrown in. Flavor is raisins, a touch of floral, then grain and alcohol. You can definitely tell its high test by the aroma and flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Light fruits, hop resin, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes more sweet than bitter. Not bad.

My nose’s first thought is ‘candy’ but what kind, & now a ripe brie smell (probably simcoe hops as i just smelled some an hour ago making a batch of ale), a little pine & caramel—quite a mix. Drinking from a 32 oz can. Can’t escape the cheese in the flavor, the pine of hops & alcohol forming a bitter chord. Hazy orange yellow with moderate off white head. Light on the palate. A confused finish. Nasty, which isn’t the worst thing.

CapFlu (4516) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
High alcohol. IPA meets malt liquor. Very citrus aroma with a fruity finish. Strong alcohol and malt base with a tingly orange body. Interesting.

BrewDad (4978) - Olympia, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Beer Bloggers Conference - San Diego - Golden amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice easy drinking Double IPA, A little light in the extra hops needed to make a big IPA flavor.

Draft. Hazy golden amber color, fluffy white head. Nice aroma of citrus, peach, pineapple. Taste is fruity, malty, just a touch of bitterness at the finish.

BlackHaddock (3747) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Decent sized sample poured by the breweries Southern California Market Manager Jenny Ramos during a Beer and Indian food evening in The Clay Oven, irvine, Orange County on 14th July 2014. Red hue to this brew, the head off-white and clingy. Malty front in both the nose and taste, the hops are there as well though and come through loud and clear with a mild citrus feel to their flavouring. No expert on this style/type of beer but I liked this one.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique April 2013. A real tongue stripper this one with plenty of flavour and big hop dose and a bit alcohol kick in the finish.
