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!

Label stamped 07 16 15 vertically.

Pours a brilliantly clear and saturated orange, with a steady plume of rising carbonation. Ample head of off white foam with a creamy surface texture, clumps of sticky lace all around the glass. Head lasts for a few minutes after the pour.

Initial aroma of bubblegum and pale malt sweetness... Where are the hops?

Taste is a little more hop forward, fruity citrus notes of oranges and a light pleasant bitterness. Aside from the ABV it drinks more like an IPA, which says something about its drinkability also. Lighter bodied though substantial. Overall it's really not bad at all, and it's nice to know its freshness dated. From the reviews here I was expecting a letdown, but the only thing lacking was aroma.
