bombelsky (31) - - MAY 18, 2016
Poured from a 12 FL.OZ. bottle into a snifter. Golden, clear color. Very thick 3-4 fingers, frothy head. Decent lacing. Average, medium carbonation. Nice fresh aroma of a resin and sweet aromas of a grapefruit and mango. Some alcohol, some caramel. Heavy bitter flavor, later light sweetness. Bitterness is not harsh, that I can tell. Medium body. Creamy, oily, sticky and little bit salty. Has a very long, dry finish. Tasty but not very special beer. Expiration date: 22.01.2017 Review date: 18.05.2016

This is a fairly enjoyable double IPA. Aroma and taste is hoppy, earthy, fruity and shows hints of citrus. Not too boozy. Pleasant long lasting bitterness.

vandc01 (339) - North Branch, USA - MAY 9, 2016
12oz bottle poured at home - no bottling date on it. Tastes fairly fresh. The aroma is present, but not overhelming. Taste is very crisp and dry. No alcohol present for a 10% beer. Pretty tasty

TattooJack (509) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Poured from the six pack of bottles, not the first time I’ve had this one just can’t get around to rating it because it’s so potent and delicious. Taste is creamy, piney, sticky, tropical, thick, and not boozy at all considering it’s alcohol content. This is one of my favorites and always a go to when I find it cold.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready malty tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

growler6 (127) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2016
Orange, rosemary and tea aromas blend well with caramel sweetness and hop bitterness. Medium body and not too sticky. Bitter finish lingers in the back of my throat. A solid DIPA.

Golden coloured with big white head. Pineapples in caramel aroma. Big on the toffee with huge piney, bitter finish. A beautifully big beer. Rated by BrewTom

I think what I like best about this one is how it feels on the palate, very smooth and silky. All the right hops and malts blend together nice. I would also recommend to not drink this super cold. It get much more interesting when it warms up a bit. Never disappointed with Ballast Point though.
