Our bottle Robust Series gives all beer lovers an opportunity to try our most rare beers, previously available only on draft at select tap houses. Enjoy! Get the Point!

World of Beer, Baltimore, draft. Nice hoppy bitter aroma, but not strong enough to make my eyes roll back in my head. Aroma smells a little like a farm, if you get my drift. Has a sharpness, an anise, to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (12 oz) bought @ Cambridge Wine & Spirits. Hotel Room Tasting.

Appearance: Clear bright golden/orange with a small fully lasting white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Quite hoppy (dank and citrusy hops) with a lot of resin, alcohol and herbal presence.

Taste: Medium sweetness. Quite resinous with dank hops, citrus/tropical fruits, light spiciness, boozy presence and medium bitterness.

Palate: Medium to full body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Super oily mouthfeel. Dry resinous finish. Warming.

Overall: Impressively drinkable for a 10% abv DIPA. It’s a bit boozy, but it’s not one of those horrible DIPA that you could confuse with an hoppy Barley Wine. Tasty and well balanced.

721Lance (72) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Another unreal beer from Ballast. Big huge hop aroma, flavor continues with hop forward ness, slight malt sweetness with some alcohol residual. Ours crystal clear with an opulent hop finish.

VinegarStroke (319) - Napa, California, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle: very light haze, straw with a little copper. Medium head but great lace. The nose on this is awesome. There ’s a load of hops but that’s balanced buy some massive malt. Citrus caramel, fruit, tropical and intense. Far more malt than you would usually see on a West Coast Double IPA. Dry, opposite of sour but very bitter. Massive flavor and texture as well as being as bitter as your mother n law. Almost has an English note to it. Freshness is great for the level of hops and alcohols.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (25) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
12oz bottle Looks like a jar of honey. Golden hue, thin head, Pour shows some density that is evident in the pine resin. citrus and over abundance of hops. All that hops is well balanced leading to a pleasant, lingering bitterness on the pallet. 10%abv is noticable.
