This is a nice example of a California Double India Pale Ale. It pours out like a golden stream of the nectar of the Gods. You can definately smell the hops in this one and the taste has a nice bitter bite. I wish the alcohol was a bit higher but even with the lower level this is a nice beer. For the price you can't go wrong.

Excellent Beer.

A - Poured from a bomber into a pilsner. Perfectly clear honey amber. Two inch head with gorgeous lacing and retention.

S - Grapefruit, pine, lots of hop characteristics. Some warmth of malt in there. really really nice.

T - Great bitterness right off the bat. Hoppy pine and citrus with sweetness coming in secondary. Delicious.

M - Wonderful, soft chewy and thick mouthfeel. perfectg carbonation.

D - This is an excellent beer, and an excellent representation of the style.

I had this beer once before at a bar in San Diego, but could never locate it up in Northern California. I finally got my hands on it and was eager to review:

A- Very inviting. Thick white head that laces quite evenly down the glass. Hop aroma evident from a distance.

S- Floral notes are immediately evident. The hope aroma is strong, but not overwhelming.

T- Very enjoyable. Definitely not as striking as a Pliny the Elder or Racer 5, but a very enjoyable experience.

D- Overall, definitely a good drinking experience. Wouldn't mind picking this one up again.

Dangerously drinkable double IPA, strangely not a lot of hop flavor, very malty.

Very malty for an IPA. I can taste the alcohol but it's not overwhelming. The pine-flavored hops come through at the end leading to a sticky mouthfeel.
