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.

Nice Californian double IPA. Pours is copper gold , and taste is citrusy with pineapple resin. Taste lingers on for a bit which is common with most ales of this style. Very good overall. Cheers!

Lot more fruit in taste, medium bitterness, slight bready malt. Bit dry in the finish, slight alcohol. Decent malt forward DIPA.

drjoeng (619) - 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!

mateuszk (1583) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours clean, orange in colour, nice white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, very weak, signs of oxidation noticable. In taste lightly sweet, dry with solid bitter finish. In the finish just a hint of alcohol. Not bad but unfortunately a bit old.

12 ounce bottle pours a nice orange amber color with just a bit of haze. Some dank piney aromas Nice lasting off white creamy head. A ton of flavor and carbonation. A lot of Hoppin bitterness and also a bit harsh. Not bad but not smooth either.

CObiased (241) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2016
1 quart can - pours a semi hazy amber with a fluffy light tan head. Good solid aroma with big pine resin, bitter orange peel and a toffee like sweetness. A mouthful is full of flavors like the aroma - intense bitter citrus, fresh pine notes, bitter floral and a sweet biscuitness. Long aftertaste and virtually no booziness
