12 oz. bottle poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Hazy orange-brown color with a medium off-white head that lingers. Aroma of pineapple and citrus with a hint of bready malt in the background. Taste is a bit sweet for a double IPA, but a nice hoppy bite comes through in the finish. The taste of alcohol is pretty well hidden considering this one clocks in at 10% abv. A very good double IPA that is nonetheless eclipsed by its little brother Sculpin.

minutemat (2780) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
355ml bottle from Brewdog’s world wide website. Pours clear burnt gold. Big fruity aroma. Taste is smooth, hoppy with a good fruit / caramel ratio, and more drinkable than expected for the ABV with a restrained bitterness. My fave from Ballast so far, although like the others I’ve had the hoppiness does seem a bit overkill at times.

Poured a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma was light fruity notes, some light grapefruit, touch of booze. Flavor was grapefruits, light bitter notes. Fruity character. Light heat at the finish.

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Slowly fading white head on a deep golden orange color. Aroma is pretty nice, lemons, grapefruit and a pine deep down below.

Flavor has a juicy citrus up front with a sturdy malt bill. Malt is obviously huge to give that ABV but it does show a pretty aggressive bold bitterness that come from citrus and pine. Great balance. Nice juiciness from the citrus. Damn nice in a bottle, probably crazy good on draft. Wow.. The alcohol is not even notable. Very nice Imperial.

ChrisFields (98) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Pours amber with a thin white head. Aromas of pine, apricot and caramel. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming. Taste is sweet malt which then rounds off into a pleasant bitterness. Fairly smooth with mild carbonation. Overall pretty good.

lownote (346) - USA - AUG 13, 2015
Nice citrus aroma. Not super strong. Pours a dark copper with a big white head that fades fast. Super clear. Taste is a balanced bitter with malt. Lingering bitter. Pretty thin bodied. The hop blend is great.

AAEA (239) - California, USA - AUG 12, 2015
12 FL OZ ($2.99 bottle) This was a pretty tuff beer. at 10% ABV and 90 IBUs this is a relatively hard to consume beer for the newbie. For the pro this is a great complex beer and all i wish is that I had more. but watch out that 10% ABV will catch up to ya.

blipp (7211) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Pithy and rindy hops, some grassy notes, grapefruit, high-moderate bitterness, lighter sweetness, and lingering citric hoppy bitterness. Solid.

Gerbeer (2452) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color with light to moderate head. Aromas of toffee and pine, sweet malts and rubber. Flavors of caramel, muddled fruit, toasted malts, pine and a little spicy hops. Bitter finish. Very nice.

Bottle from brewdog online. Rosy orange colour with a slightly off white head. Aroma of orange and grapefruit, maple and pine. Taste nicely balanced despite the massive hops, sweet and crisply bitter. Medium hops and full body with a nice oily mouthfeel. Really very good.
