COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A style of beer curiously born on the foggy shores of Father Junipero Serras 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, theres 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, its really good.

Jado (796) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2013
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a great clear copper with a small but tight off-white head and moderate carbonation. Real flavour bomb in the nose with lots of tropical fruits - pawpaw, guava, lime, maybe a little mango - along with some pine needles. Big taste too, with a decent slap of piney hop bitterness up front that slips away to more tropical fruit, pepper, cinnamon and lemon. Lovely palate and beautifully balanced flavours. Great stuff.

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2013
Pours a clear amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, coffee, toasty notes and some hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a slight toasty and strong bitter finish. Nice one!

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Deep muddy amber. Aroma is perfume of floral hops. Terrific full body palate. I was expecting an overpowering hop Ipa, but this brew is very well balanced. Slight sweetness in the initial sip of honey. The high abv is almost completely unnoticeable. I was a little hesitant to buy it at the market for $3.5 per bottle, but this brew delivers. Excellent IPA!

mcberko (16064) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from Neillago (thanks a lot, Neil), pours a fairly clear dark copper orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out fairly subtle notes of piney hops, a little resin, and caramel malt. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, some slightly sweet residual sugars, caramel malt, and a small hint of grapefruit. Fairly restrained for a IIPA, with a solid malt backbone holding this together without being cloyingly sweet. Very good.

Big bold ballsy beer - full, round without being too hoppy. Nice flavors, slides down nicely. Top drop.

Jur (468) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle brought from San Fran, thx Erik! Copper-orange pour, light white head. Caramel nose, booziness. Fairly nutty flavour, nutmeg perhaps even. Quite sweet, candy sugar, sticky. Mildly bitter, hoppy finish.

DuffMan (9930) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy, TylerDurden, and Rosser. Deep orange colour, light golden pillowy head. Sweet papaya and tropical fruit aroma. Very sticky, sweet palate, loaded with tropical fruit character. Just a bit too sweet for my tastes.
