Pours a golden honey color. Smells hoppy yet also some sweet with pine notes. A little thicker creamy head for an IPA-ish beer. Lots o' bubbles. It tastes pretty much like it smells, hints of pine and fruit notes along with a strong and bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel is excellent, fizzy but pleasant and refreshing. Overall, I liked this beer. Not what I was expecting from the name, but probably something i would drink more of if it were on tap in my area.

The Beers of California

#62

Bottled Date:

A: Golden clear with an off white head which leaves a capillary network of lace on the glass.

S: Pine freshness, flowers, citrus zest, and California summer heat. Traces of bread and sugar attempt to shrine through and fight the smothering hop weight.

T: Clean, balanced and surprisingly smooth. Fruit comes through as grapefruit peel and pineapple. The fruit fades to a clean and aromatic bitterness which is less pronounced than expected. The malt is in the back doing its best to hold things together with a bready and sugary sweetness. The finish is warm and somewhat dry.

M: Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. The linger is there as expected given the lacing on the glass.

O: Great hop presence in a well balanced brew. If I could pick a beer to represent the DIPA style this would have to be it: widely distrubuted, big and clean with both spice and fruit complexity.

Wow as soon as you crack this open you get an immediate power punch of hop aromas. A true variety here too many to list just about everything you would expect for an American Double IPA. Occasionally you get a subtle sweet malty tone.

Color wise this beer is light amber in color not bad but nothing spectacular either.

Taste- Hops, hops, more hops, and add some more hops the name fits this beer perfectly. Despite the fact that this beer is so hoppy and has 102 IBU's its not insanely bitter. Theres a good balance from the malt to keep this from being brutal if the hops had been left to their own.
