Pours a clear yellow, rather than the usual orangey amber of a lot of IPAs. Quite fragrant with the usual assortment of hops. They seem to have covered the bases, with the intent to hit a home run. Flowery and fruity and resiny, with a serious stab of grapefruit pith at the heart. Rather light bodied with a faint malty substance, but not much flavor survives the hop assault.
A workmanlike IPA that should satisfy the hop-centric drinker. Since people are comparing this to Sculpin, I have to say this is a good deal less bitter. It is, however, plenty bitter, and more than enough to reduce the drinkability. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Blvd.

On tap at True North in the North Park area of San Diego.
Pour is light amber-gold with fine-grained visible carbonation and a very durable, semi-creamy off-white head. Exceptional sticky lacing.
Smell: strong and pungent (hops).
Taste: Not as intense as the aroma suggests yet this could still pass as a DIPA. Medium-high bitterness. Bitterness is moderated by some malts. .
Feel: medium body; medium-high but soft carbonation.
O: Very good IPA IF you like this hop load ... but not my cup of tea.
Serving type: on-tap

While partial to SOCAL-style IPAs (if it isn't yet, "SOCAL IPA" should be an official beer style), I particularly like this offering. A refreshing slight-pine, slight-citrus taste that isn't too overpowering with malt or hops (although the bias is definitely more towards hops). I particularly like that it now comes in 12 oz cans. One of the great San Diego offerings (yep... I am biased towards SD too).

Not "just another IPA" out here in the land of the IPAs
Offered in six packs and on draft almost anywhere I go out here in LA
Looks great in the glass.. Same shade of IPA orange as they're double IPA .
Smells of new age hops combined together. I get a big aroma of this beer without even bringing the glass to my nose. Squeezed fruits, hop bliss, a small earthiness as well
Taste is hops up front - very balanced and not too bitter . After taste leaves you beggin for more. Not much ABV burn or taste here. Very easy drinkin swill
Mouth feel is über refreshing. Crisp from carbonation and not overly carbonated - this mouthfeel but not at all watery.
Overall this flagship beer can rival some of the older classics - not selling as fast as the others making this tough to find real fresh .. I think out here in the west were near the end of the IPA six pack
Serving type: on-tap
