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.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, - JUN 27, 2012
A copper orange color with an off-white creamy head. Plenty of pine/citrus hops up front with treacle, sugary malts to balance. Nice feel and body, good hoppy follow. I look forward to this one again on my next visit!

thomat (1996) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle @ Haket Pub. Golden with a small white head. Fruity and malty tones. Fruit, malt, alcohol and bitterness. Full body with a bitter sweet after taste.

Not my favorite double ipa. could be an old bottle for sure as it had some classic oxygenation aromas. hops were a bit astringent over a too malty, almost syrupy body. a bit of alcohol heat as well. i like mission breweries beers, so i’ll chalk this on up to poor storage and get a fresh one from the brewery next time i’m in town,

olio (5947) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
355 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. No freshness info.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Resinous hops and orange on the nose, mild grassy and malty notes. Very fruity flavor with lots of caramel, not too sweet though. Feels quite fresh and and crisp too. A tasty DIPA.

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2014
946 ml kæmpe-dåse. Tak til Martin. Klar, gylden og klistret med et mindre hvidt skum og en lige så klistret, greasy aroma af sød karamel, fyrnåle, gran, humlesved, eksotiske frugter og harpiks. Meget sød og fyldig i munden, med tydelig alkohol. Lidt for meget af det hle, men ikke dårlig.

946ml can, 31/6-14 @ Stefans place. Clear amber, big soapy fluffy head, nice lacings. Caramel, grapefruit, lychee, resinand some alcohol fume. Sweet caramel, grapefruit & lychee, pine and resin, some alcohol heat. Big resiny & piney bitterness. Big body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Big chunky DIPA with lots of resin and some alcohol heat. Pretty nice though.

12 oz bottle. Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Pine needles, dark fruitiness, mild resin, moderate hoppy bitterness and sweetish malt in the aroma. The flavour is pine needles, resin, moderate bitterness and malt. Sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tselloufc88 (90) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
946ml can from Petaluma Market. How big is this can?!?! Anyway the beer.... Light Brown, looks like weak tea. Big white head. Aroma is of sweets and pine. Bitter start, grapefruit centre with a fair bit of malt present. Massively bitter finish which stays with you. Very alcoholic, still tasty but lacks a bit of hop balance. Decent enough though.

StevieT (544) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2014
From a bottle. Cloudy copper colour with a orange white head, big floral aroma, huge fruity citrus flavours with a big warming slug from the huge alcohol content.

stevoj (2016) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Nice sharply bitter ale with abundant fluffy head. Hoppy aroma, some pine, some grapefruit. Taste is pure up front hops, tingling on the tongue, bitter abrupt hops finish, with tongue still tingling.

Hockert (75) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2014
Giant can at brewdog bar Gothenburg. Almost 1 litre. Smells of caramel malt. Strong taste of alcohol.
