11/VI/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ DICT BBQ - BB: n/a (2014-618) Thanks to Erwin and Frederic for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, some sediment floating around under a nice creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity, caramel, honey, malts, sweet, biscuit. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: fruity start, bitter hops, sweet malts, honey, bit piny, resinous, little sour. Aftertaste: quite the alcohol burn, very resinous hops, bitter and dry, alcohol is very noticeable, bit sourish, sweet malt base carries the very high bitterness. Very decent beer, this one!

Bottle amongst friends. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is a piney citrus with a light honey note. Taste is moderately hoppy and slightly sweet. Overall enjoyable.

Floral and rich to the nose, no palate wrecking on the finish. If you like to have room on your palate for a follow on selection this one will do it. I got a "Christmas candy" taste followed by a nice warm soothing finish. Ballast Point nailed it!

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh with Devon, Don and Katie. Yes sir, a perfect score for a memorable beer. A bit heavy on the hops but nothing that would detract from the perfect taste and flavors.

Copper color with a large head. Dank aroma. Light citrus. The flavor is a bit like candied orange peel. Just a bit of sweetness, but lots of orange and tangerine bitterness. Medium bodied.

Thx to Will for lugging this xcountry. Pours a clear orange with fluffy white head. Aroma is pithy orange, heavy pine, hop resin, piss. Flavor is resiny hop, very nice pale malt backbone, grapefruit.. Not overly sweet or boozy for 10%. Nice

Bomber purchased at the Little Italy tasting room. Nice light amber color with a light floral hop aroma. Excellent mouth feel, not overly malty. Excellent hoppy brew without being overly bitter with no alcohol undertaste. An excellent double IPA and I would have again.

Ballast Point is ON POINT with this one. Like most of their hop oriented brews, the Dorado is one to enjoy. The complexity from the varieties of hops creates a smorgasbord of piney, grassy, and citrus flavors and is supported by a strong backbone of toasted malts. A darkish brown color creates a telltale tan head and nice palate that comes from the near perfect balance. Great brew.
