A West Coast Double IPA So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. Weve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge hop bite. Once youve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU 8%ABV

I have had this lovely beer on tap many times around San Diego, but this rating based on a bomber I picked up at the brewery. Pours a golden amber and the head is eggshell colored and truly gigantic and thick, receding very slowly. Aroma is full of really lovely hops with mostly semi-sweet fruit tones (tangerine, mango, peach, and citrus). Flavor is rather mellow and nuanced considering the nose and the amount of hops in this. More fruity notes with both sweet and bitter tones. Smooth and lightly bitter finish. Good stuff, but definitely get your hands on the Exponential Hoppiness if you can. (415, 289)

Solid but nowhere near mind blowing IPA. Purty gold pour with pure white head sitting up top. Seems like a variety of hops were used, has a nice mix of many hop attributes working for it. A bit on the sweet side, but in the end it does finish pretty well and makes for a good, albeit hard to get brew.

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Pours a brilliant dark amber orange with a fine white head. Looks really beautiful in a Bruery snifter. The aroma is citrusy, piney, floral, and very fresh. The flavor is resinous with pine, citrus, and spicy hops. Sweet malts balance out the huge bitterness, Tastes like candy coated hop flowers. One of the best West Coast DIPAs Ive had. Nearly perfect mouthfeel which is not easy to accomplish with this style.

Toronado San Diego - Draft Overall Nicely balanced beer, good aroma notes of citrus. Thin head, slightly thinner palate than I like. A good session beer.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2010
22 oz bottle (from a trade) into Duvel tulip. Pours a cloudy copper with a one finger head which settled into a coating, leaving light to little lacing. Nose was wonderful floral, pine and citrus, especially orange and mango. Carbonation was evident and mouthfeel was on the light side for a DIPA. Taste was hop forward, cut well with orane, grapefuit and sticky, bready malts. The bitterness is there at the finish, but not one of those screw-with-your-mouth hop bombs that leaves your mouth numb. This is a pleasant and well-balanced brew, albeit hop focused. This characteristic is what seperates the great DIPAs from the others and this IS a great DIPA. The hype is justified. Now if we could only get this fresh on the right coast...

Pours golden and hazy with small white head. Arama is earthy and floral. Mouthful is a reflection of the nose. Good but not bright like I like my west coSt ipas...
