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.

Beaver (1692) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with a medium creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is subdued - some resiny hops and alcohol.

The flavor is a little sweet malt with a ton of sharp bitter alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I remember this being much better on tap. All I get is bland bitter alcohol.

12 ounce from four pack. Am I the first to purchase this in Lexington? Ill imagine that I am. Big orange pour. Alcohol in taste and nose. Bit malty. Tropical fruit. Hoppy and big. Bitter.

Davros (2871) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours deep amber with a large, lasting head. Aroma of pine, fruity confectionery, floral hops and some clean malt underneath. Also some toasty malt. More interesting malt as flavours along with harsh pine and grassy hops followed by hot booze. Carbonation could be higher.

wlajwl (5939) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Aroma is citrus, lemons, light tropical fruit and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, biscuit malts, hop resin and a long and bitter/slightly tart finish. Didnt have a sickening sweetness that ruins other DIPAs, definitely among the better DIPAs Ive had.

DeliriumT (501) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2013
Aroma is sweet caramel with citrus bursts and mild spices. Flavour is sweet caramel and banana balanced well with a good dose of hops. The hops are not the star in this beer though, the wort is the real winner here ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. The pour here is a copper color with a thin off-white head that leaves some light lacing here and there. This smells of brown sugar, resinous hops, and caramel. Theres bread notes mixing in there too. The flavor adds some sweet orange/tangerine to resinous hops and caramel. Its slick, sweet, and fairly thick in the body. It does dry out a bit in the finish, with sharp bitterness, but not without some lingering sticky malt and alcohol. Meh. Decent. A little too much malt and Im not a huge fan of the mostly resinous hop profile.

This was NYC trip beer number 4. After this beer, I begin to forget the order, thus ratings beyond this are not in any temporal order. As if anyone truly cares. I always feel uneasy rating something I have on cask. This was either the last beer i had at Blind Tiger or the first at Pony Bar. Poured amber with an obviously light head. Very floral with a smell similar to a saison. It had a wine-like flavor with the sweet outshining the bitter. Just okay for me.

Thick rich syrupy beverage with a pungent aroma of over over ripe fruit. Nice golden amber hazy poor.

Bottle from mane liquor. Lovely golden orange pour with a small white head which disappears rapidly. Solid carbonation almost perfect. Thick piney resinous aroma. Some hops in there too. Taste quite soft on the palate. More pine hops coming through. Shortbread biscuit malt and a bit of caramel in there too. Bitterness doesn't last for long kinda teases you a bit. Feel the booze. Pretty solid stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
