Picked up a bomber at a Temecula 76 gas station (wish gas stations back home carried craft...and I mean real craft). Halfway through the bottle and I'm having a hard time believing this is a Double IPA! For one thing, the hops are nonexistent except a tad in the aftertaste....however, overall this is a really good ale. Maybe a Double Pale??? I'd get this again though, enjoyed it!

On-tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad
A: The pour is a cloudy orange-amber color with a nice white head and some mild lacing.
S: Hmm this is probably the lightest nose on a DIPA that I've ever experienced. Subtle pine and citrus, otherwise it's faint bread notes.
T: The flavor is similarly bland. I pick up some light citrus (grapefruit, for the most part) and a moderate bitterness. Some bread and caramel malt sweetness, too.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Not one of Oceanside's better beers. I was expecting to enjoy this one, but found myself not doing so.

Just picked up a growler of there newest batch. Not bad. the claim it is a 9.6% on there board but after a full growler not sure it really is. When cold first sip is pretty good. Nice bitter tasted with a grapefruit and hint of orange. Gets sweat quick if you let it sit for a bit. Overall not bad. It's in my driving route so when the Dude is around i Abide.

On tap at Barley and Hops
A- Dark amber color with a finger of of white head. Great lacing.
S- Pale malt and citrus hops.
T- Bitter hops up front. Dank, and more hempy than citrusy. Some orange notes. Sweet caramel malt in the middle. Finish is bitter with some alcohol presence.
M- Feel is thick and chewy with a medium level of carbonation.
O- A tasty, but somewhat predictable DIPA. Good, but there are so many other locals which I would reach for first.

On tap at Stone
A: Appears slightly hazy golden orange with a fizzy white head.
A: Aroma is sweet grapefruit flesh with some bitter rind and a little pine. Malt is bready. Somewhat muted all around.
T: Flavor is sugary sweet up front, almost candied, with notes of grapefruit, orange, and subtle lemon. I think there's some sweet peach in there. A distracting astringent character kicks in midpalate, and carries through the finish, it's seemingly augmented by the strong alcohol profile. Malt is caramel and bready at times. For 7.2%, there is a lot of alcohol flavor.
M: Light medium body with upper moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and somewhat astringent.
Overall: Merely okay. At 7.2% it's on the border of single and double IPA, and it's a double in name and alcohol flavor only, really. Call it a single IPA, mute that alcohol flavor, and tend to that astringency, and this would benefit greatly.

A - Fantastic clear bronze with humongous, thick, sticky head leaves so slow. TONS of cling remains.
S - The expected hops and malt found in most IPAs is not there. Bitterness, but almost metallic.
T - Similarly, the taste lacks malt, very bitter, not much malt or hop character. Also a little metallic.
M - Balance is to bitter. Not much in way of sweet malt.
D - One is more than enough. Very one dimensional. Sure looks good though.
