COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
San Diego style IPA. On our recent trip to San Diego for the World Beer Cup we had several opportunities to soak up the local beer scene. San Diego area brewers and their aggressively hopped beers have made the west coast style of brewing famous. This IPA employs an indecent amount of Amarillo & Simcoe hops. We named the brew after the Top Gun fighter pilot school in Miramar, CA. The color is reminiscent of a San Diego Sunset and the body s lighter and dryer than our Tiger Bite IPA. By the time you finish this beer you’ll know you’ve been in a hop fight.

One of the better IPAs from Blind Tiger. Potent citrusy hop body with a nice malty sweet balance. Tried first in 2010 and many times since.

I remember the first time I tasted this beer years ago and thought it was too hoppy and barely drinkable. As I've tried more beers and have grown to love big hoppy beers and now count this as one of my favorites. Really a great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a fairly clear dark golden orange appearance with a white head. Grapefruity, slightly resiny, spicy hoppy aroma. Toasted malty, spicy, ganja hoppy, moderately bitter flavor. Best I had here. Nice stuff.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of great citrusy and floral American hops. Just a touch of biscuit malt. Flavor of the same. When fresh so nice and hoppy. Dry, crisp and hoppy like a great west coast IPA should be!

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 19, 2012
On tap at brewery. Clear golden with a creamy off white head. Big grassy and pine aroma and taste with a good biter bite but a somewhat soapy finish.
