Maybe I got an old batch but it didn't blow me away. Super malty and super boozy.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
A- Pine, citrus, malty, alcohol.
A- Burnt orange color, clear liquid, off white head.
T- Pine, bitter, burnt caramel, malty.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- Decided to try the watermelon version of this first thinking I’ll go from worst to best. Somehow I think I did it backwards. This seemed actually worse. Decent aroma but insanely full of bitter pine and malty caramel. Just too much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy brown colour, some white lacing. Slightly malty aroma with a hint of fruit: mango and citrus. Strong, bitter taste, lingering dry finish, prevalent alcohol taste as well. Tingly carbonation, overall quite light-bodied. Ok for the style, but not that great.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a pure example of the San Diego (Imperial) IPA. Hop-forward, piney, bitter, and resinous. Amber-orange pour - just a bit of haze. Juicy tropical fruit and pine needles in the flavor profile. Herbaceous with some subtle nectar sweetness. Definitely heavy on the hops, but there’s a big malt body holding them up. Beautifully done. Pretty close to perfect for me.

From a bottle. A very interesting beer, I’m not completely sold on the watermelon flavour in beer but this is quite restrained and worth and worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very good sweet flowery aroma, taste is quite good...flowery and sweet as well but with the hops bitterness... bitterness is on front end and a bit too strong for me...also has a hotter alcohol taste that is about the highest it could be without degrading taste. Lots of flavors...good and bad though lol

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great cornerstone of the Ballast Point "fish-themed" IPAs. Clean, tasty west coast Double IPA with a fantastic, complex hop profile.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance- hazy amber, a big off-white head which quickly diminishes, leaving a clinging foamy covering. Aroma- lots of tangerine, grapefruit and pine, hops, pineapple, juicy fruit, hints of bready malt. Taste- bitter grapefruit and pineapple juice, hop resin, orange peel, marmalade, long bitter finish, juicy, fizzy and full mouthfeel. Alcohol well hidden. A nice, fruit-forward DIPA.
