A great IPA. Pours light toned amber with decent froth. Floral aroma is faint and some pine or spruce comes out bigger. Taste is smooth and drinkable with a medium bitter finish.

Dark hazy amber color, with floral/citrus aroma. Taste is piney with hints of citrus and even some rye. Leaves a bitter taste that leaves you wanting more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Klar gyllenbrun i färgen med ett trevligt smutsvitt skum.
Härlig muskig centennialdoft.
Grapefrukt framträdande i smaken. Barsk beska som kanske känns lite ofräsch.
Påminner en hel del om Sculpin, men lite "grövre" på något sätt.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Medium amber and moderately heady pour with excellent clarity. An essence of caramel malts to begin but the pine hops introduce themselves fairly soon after that. Medium body. A hesitant malt sweetness at first that gives way to the pine and fuller hop bitterness at the end.

Big Eye - Ballast Point - bitter, bold, cloudy, amber red color, nose was o.k. but not overwhelming, nicely balanced with 7 ABV..., not my favorite one.....

I tried an IPA years ago and found that I’m not a fan. My liquor store was offering samples of different Ballast point beers - The lager was mellow. But I bought a 6 pack of this. The flavors that come to mind are grapefruit and pineapple... I guess it’s hoppy along with that. I’m not a fan of citrus or hot peppers in my beer , but this is drinkable , compared to the last IPA? I’m going for my 2nd bottle , I might even explore other IPAs if I hear praise of a real good one?

@ Stordirren 15-8-15: en diskret doft men en fin fyllig smak utan att sticka ut på något sätt. En stabil välbalanserad öl.

This beer turned our heads around 360. Just like the girl spinning her head in the Exorcist. In other words, NOT what we are used to in an initial impression of an IPA. A great appearance, in a nice nasty head. Hat’s off to this very unique IPA. A true craft beer that the more you tasted, the more it slid down without filling you up like other IPA’s do.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Clear and copper in color, nice foamy off white head that left beautiful lacing all over the glass. Aroma of citrus fruit, hops and some malts. Taste is consistent, bitter and hoppy but with a nice malty backbone. Very bitter finish, however it is quite refreshing and easy to drink.

Bitter, hoppy grape fruit and pine character and a malty backbone. Not bad , but not that interesting either

Cn enjoyed by the pool. A malty IPA, showcases malts before hops. Very similar to hoes before bros im afraid, Something that should never be done. Bummer.
