Pours amber gold with a frothy head. Big aroma of hops; citrus, pine, and sweet malts. Flavor was well balanced, with sweet malts up front, though floral hops to a bitter/citrus finish. Very nice IPA. I’m looking forard to more Ballast Point

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma was full of fresh hops as if I just pulled them out of my own hops freezer very floral and a little spicy. Poured deep golden with 1 finger of white head that laced nicely on the glass. Flavor was not as enjoyable as aroma. Really grassy and a little garlicy, but it had gotten better by the end of the glass and was more citrus tasting. mouthfeel was oliy and fully. a decent ipa.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Found this one bottled at Lundeen’s in DeKalb, Illinois. Hazy light copper pour with a nice, fluffy rose colored head. Brassy, piney hoppiness in the nose, balanced with some bright citrus notes. Potent bitterness from intense hoppiness. Grapefruit and orange rind, rosewater from start to finish. Very strong finish, tapers to a strong bitterness at the back of the tounge. Among the finest IPA’s I’ve had recently.

(on bottle) Got this beer from my wife, I needed some cheering-up. Being an clear amber color and having a beauitfull white foamy head, it looked like it would work. The nose was a hopattack of , yeah well hops; citric, piny and tropical fruity. The Taste was a true joy of a good bite of hops and firm malts(malts of the light side tho´). Finish goes nice and deep, both refreshing, a small, tart bite and a wellbalanced malttone, resulting in a full and happy-making beer.
