Draft. Amber color with a thick white, soapy head. Aroma is grapefruit, oranges, and pine/resin. A lastly bitter punch that is at first balanced with tropical fruit flavors.

Pours a very pale golden color. At first I thought the head was lacking, but it quickly built from the bottom and cratered with large bubbles on top. Carbonation appears to be somewhat light looking at the glass. Aroma of pine, resin and wet grass - all good hop smells. This beer has a lot of bitter hop bight as soon as it hits your mouth. I’m not sure if I’d call this beer one note, but hops is the overpowering characteristic. Given the ABV on this beer it is surprisingly crisp in the mouth, too, so you could probably drink a couple of these without your mouth tasting gross.

Always a fan of single hops IPAs and all the more imperials. No let down here. Lots of bitter citrus and exotic fruit from the hops. Balanced malt with a little sweetness. Bitter, bitter and not at all boozy in the finish. Great execution.

well, had this in a winter time. and it was dark, and couldn’t manage to get a glass. very dry and bitter, hoppy. very much an imperial ipa characters should have. felt less sweet than eviltwin’s molotov, less bitter than firestone walker’s double jack. but it was very dry.

On tap at BrewDog Liverpool. Rich golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is big burnt orange oil and deep fruit. Taste is light sweet to a long bitter finish. The alcohol was evident as is was warming. Very nice.

ebone1988 (774) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Aroma is really nice, sweet tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, pine, maybe a hint of booze but very juicy. Appearance is perfect, off golden and completely clear with a white head. Taste is wonderful, very sharp hops, pine, tropical fruit, no detection of malt and just the slightest hint of booze. Mouthfeel is perfect, crisp carbonation, body is light to medium, drinks like a perfect IPA with a bit of booze present in the aftertaste. Overall, a very very good offering, as always, by Ballast Point.

jeremyh70 (977) - Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Pours a clear copper with a white head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma is grapefruit with a bit of a floral. Taste is very similar with a strong bitterness and only a slight backing of caramel malt. Medium body with moderate carbonation. More drinkable than most double IPAs with an interesting mix of hops. Well constructed.
