Finally got my hands on a nice variety of fresh Ballast Point brews, was super stoked for the DIPA and wow, what a let down. Boozy, unoriginal, pretty lame to be honest.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 This beer is quite good. I have special need to get supar boosted for Louis Prima celibration of my own liking when he came to california from new orleans to expand on fine festive music and to stimulate glorious butt cheeks on west coast of US. since the fish named ballast is in san diago - louis and my wondewrful girl betty for surf and sun area are perfect for time of much record spin and tanned butt-cheeks for a wonderful time. While betty enjoys fine tasting beer - she is not familiarn with streanth of beer and combined with the glorious sounds of Lous Prima - she has movered her cheeks in a way that makes this beer very memorable for me and for that I love the Ballast people and Betty with her glorious ass.,

Holy alcohol forward dipa batman! This is ten percent. Not much to taste but your brain is fucked up so who cares. Ballast point has impressed upon me high alcohol beers with just over the line taste. And that is ok. I will always purchase their stuff. Reliable and consistent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear bronze with a good sized beige head. The aroma has tropical fruits, tangerine, dank funk, pineapple and sweet caramel malt. It has a medium full body with very light frothy carbonation which is plentiful. The taste starts with a sweet tropical fruit punch taste - pineapple sweetness, mango, spice and some point along with sweet malt that would be overpowering if it wasn’t for all the hops. The finish has more spices and earthiness, and houses the alcohol incredibly well. Super solid IPA.

What a great double IPA. Great citrus piney aroma. Smooth flavor but not as heavy as most doubles I've had. Could drink a few of these at a sitting. Maybe my favorite double I've had so far.

Murky burnt orange with a bright white head. Sweet toffee, crumbly cheesecake base and tropical hop aromas on the nose - pineapple mainly. Very big but overly sweet aroma. Pine, grapefruit, honeydew melon, grass and sweet toffee, it’s pretty damn good. Thick body, good carbonation and silky afterfeel.
