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.

StaleBeer (22) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Cloudy copper with a creamy head. Medium lacing. Floral sweet aroma but with alcohol tinge. Bold hoppy taste at first slightly bitter then a sweet grapefruit in the back end. Let this one sit and sip. Will pack a punch.

Tmoney99 (14100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy floral hop, cotton candy and fruit hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good interesting beer.

Smells like orange rind. Amber color in glass. The hops take a millisecond before they hit your tongue, but the hit it hard and dont let up until after it is swallowed. A good DIPA.

jb (3136) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Berries in the nose, and a bit of floral hops. Clear light orange appearance. Frothy head. Interesting taste, malt, berries, hops. Finishes very dry. No alcohol detected. Decent.

Nice copper color. Clean filtered. Nice head. The hops are not as potent as one would expect from a double IPA. The Malta seem a little more prevalent in the flavor. Though the hops seemed to stick a little more as I drank it. Palate stickige.

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Poured a cloudy apricot with a thin white head. Aroma was grapefruit malt and some pine. On the palate you get sweet fruit followed by malt and finishing with a lingering bitterness of some pine and grassy notes. Mouthfeel was medium and smooth but did have a little alcohol burn.

BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours golden orange from the bottle with a strong smell of booze and a little hops. A nice taste but the booze overpowers the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patricks110 (2468) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Pour is a bright golden orange with a few fizzy bubbles and a thin tight white head. The nose is mildly resinous with moderate pine and a solid citrus based hop, a few toasty caramel makes as well. Solid sweet mid palate with a regular San Diego style sweet smack of mild resin and s splash of citrus. full bodied and a solid moderate bitterness with a bit of alcohol presence. overall a good beer but not great.

maxwelldeux (4373) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a medium white head. Nose is hoppy and the taste is a little bit bitter, but without a lot of maltiness to it. Not a bad brew...

On tap at the brewer, pours a rusty golden yellow with a small head. Nose is citrus and pine. Taste is citrusy and bitter with NO hiding the alcohol. Finish is long and bitter. Finish is bitter sweet. Quaff Score 8 / 10
