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!

Aroma and taste are a bit onion like. I expected a citrusy west coast ipa. Color is copper and clear with white sticky head. I guess I don't care for the onion-vegetable hop flavor and smell.

Interesting DIPA. The thing is with this beer, it doesn't feel like a DIPA at all. Weak head on the beer, and despite an ABV of 9.7, mouth feel is very light as well as the nose. I liked the flavor: lots of citrus notes, especially lemon and bitter orange. I definitely didn't expect what i got with this beer. I'm glad i tried it, but probably wouldn't get it a second time. Interesting note: at the market where i picked this up, a tag advertised a RateBeer score of 97. Pretty drastic difference from beer advocate.....BA's rating is 77 "just OK" with user average reflecting the same. I knew there was a reason i preferred BA to RateBeer.

Just okay. In a market where DIPAs are everywhere, this one does not stand out. Low aroma, body is too light. You could do better for the money.

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.
