Ballast or blast? Excellent combination of enough malt to support ENORMOUS hop blast. Hot with alcohol and hops and I’m in the mood and I love it. yum yum yum

22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a medium sized white head with good retention. This has a wonderful aroma of floral and citrus hops, some pine, and hints of caramel. The flavor did not disappoint either. Hops dominate this one a bit, but in a good way. Perfect bitterness, grapefruit, pine, and enough sweet caramel malt to help balance things out. This is medium bodied and smooth drinking. Everything I have come to expect from the West Coast IPA/IIPA and long for here in OH.

Orange color, cloudy with small head. a hint of caramel scent. Hoppy with a dry finish. Awesome beer to drink on a warm summer day. Hop 15 is a much better IPA

jrob21 (2478) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2007
One of the better ones from the evening. CLoudy orange color. This is what I think of when I think west coast IPA. Big floral aromas. Mellow bitter hop flavors. Nice grapefruit taste. Slightly sweet full bodied malt character.

Pint at PP Carlsbad with my friend, Tete. Light orange color. Small head, but nice small bubbles. Good IPA. Slightly above average score for IPAs I’ve tried lately. Very drinkable, would buy again if there isn’t something new to try.

22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly hazy light orange gold with a medium white head. Nice aroma of pineapple, apricots, pine and caramel. Taste is hoppy with a strong pineapple presence and hints of apricots, citrus, mango with a grassy finish. Very nice.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy gold amber, with a small white head. Smells of big grapefruit hops, very floral, with citrus fruits in the background. The hops were fairly bitter, alot of that grapefruit, but nicely balanced here for a double IPA. The finish is pretty sweet, I get some brown sugar left on the palate and on the lips. The hops are definitely big, but there are other flavors as well, which made this beer quite enjoyable.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Thanks to Weeheavy for the bottle. Amber/orange color. Smell of hops, pine cones, grass, grapefruit, apricots, kiwi, minor caramel, malt and spice. Taste of lucious hops, malt, grapefruit, apricots, caramel, pine, earth, alcohol and a nice bitterness. Its a great Double IPA but a little light for me.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2007
22 oz bottle traded with drewbeerme. Pours an orange yellow tall white head. Nose is really nice. Grapefruit/pine/carmel characteristics of a great IIPA. Medium bodied smooth carmelly and a little sticky. More of those PNW hops sweet carmel balanced well with a strong pine bitterness. Refreshing brew.

decaturstevo (4929) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2007
A slightly hazed light orange pour with a nice white head. An aroma and flavor that are dominated by the hops. The flavor has some malt but the hops carry this big muther through. A very good mouthfeel that compliments the hops and malt of this beer. very damn good.
