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.

Aroma: At first, there’s a small funky smell, then you get a sweet, hoppy smell. Appearance: Pretty honey color, cloudy. Poured into a Dogfish Head Signature Glass. Small frothy cream colored head. Taste: bitter, sweet, fruity, malt, warm spices. Palate: starts bitter, then fruity, then leaves behind the bitter. Overall: This beer is worth picking up! You will not regret it, it’s really good.

Plovmand (7757) - 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.

dnstone (2524) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Pours a copper-amber color with soft off-white head. Syrupy hoppy-pine aroma. Balanced, but hop-forward....clean but there is a lingering sticky piney-hop flavor.

Brown red color with foam layer. Forest hoppy nose. Very creamy and oily feeling with a dry and foresty hoppy bitter and light tart taste. Dry and bitter aftertaste.

androman (1634) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2016
12fl oz bottle at home from Kaapse Brouwers, Rotterdam. Nose is tropical fruits, citrus, hint of champagne. Body is hazy orange, head is small, beige, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruits, milk chocolate, light bonbon, raisin. Medium sweet, light bitter, light fruity and citric sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy medium to heavy bitter, short lasting light sour, hint of salt, light alcohol warmth. Full body, thick texture, average carbonation. Not quite easy, very flavorful, nice one.

Nose is light citric but with clear malty notes. Nose the same and taste revealed that again. Palate a little fading but still rich. Overall rather good.

Fat på Växjö ölbar. Doftar rikligt av malt, fikon, russin. Fyllig känsla i munnen och goda Dipa toner, maltig och Faan en perfekt beska. Mycket balanserad Dipa. Inga toner av 9% alkohol Bara smakförstärkare kanon.

Bottle from Firma Bier, large sample. Clear amber color, medium rocky head. Aroma of tea, bit pine, grapefruit, slight spicy rye or something, some caramel, bready, slight herbal. Lot more fruit in taste, medium bitterness, slight bready malt. Bit dry in the finish, slight alcohol. Decent malt forward DIPA.

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - MAR 26, 2016
9.25%ABV. Imperial IPA. Tapped out a rich amber. 18ºSRM. Nose is heavy with a funkly fog-like fug. Aromas of fresh hemp and other more closely related herb relatives. When I sniffed this again for nose after the tasting was done and there was just the dregs slowly evaporating off the bottom of the glass, there are really thickly spicy and funky odors of sweat socks, oregano and dill...and of course that hemp-like nose. Palate is sweet with graham cracker, honey, barley bread toast. Hops are bitter, resinous, with a hint of pine. The citrus character of the hop comes through when you appreciate the bitter, the sweet and the pine-like tang at the end which is a little like chasing on grapefruit peel. Finish was medium, bitter and as mentioned above a little weedy funky. Goes on Favorites List!
