Bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Smells of grassy, herbal hops, but with a nice malt backbone. Well-balanced and fruity sweet--not much hop profile in the taste, surprisingly, but finishes dry with grassy hops and a bit of nuttiness. Smooth and syrupy in the mouth.

Thanks to LagunitasFan!

Appearance: Pours a semi clear amber gold with a nice beige head.

Aroma: Grapefruit, perfume, flowers. Probably more citrus notes than anything.

Taste: Big pine bitterness, spicy malt and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, modestly carbonated and sticky.

Overall: Very solid, and distinct from the other IPA and IIPA’s Ballast Point makes.

One of my favorite beers. Great taste. Nice aroma. Potent. Just wish it was available all the time and cheaper.

What a lovely bright DIPA!!! Crisp and clean with a huge citrus bouquet pouring out of the glass. Fuzzy orange/yellow color with a frothy head. Delicious beer here! Enjoy.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
A: A clear pale gold/yellow color with a nice fluffy head and amazing lacing. S: Very piney, slight citrus presence, and essentially zero malt. T: A lot more citrus on the tongue, grapefruit and lemon peel. A nice piney finish and a bitterness that sticks around and leaves you wanting more. M: Slick mouthfeel, medium bodied. D: An amazingly drinkable DIPA. Great offering by Ballast Point.

Draft @ Hulmeville Inn. Orange pour with white head. Citrusy hop aroma. Flavorful iipa, grapefruit, citrus, abv does not stand out.

MrBunn (2677) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2010
On tap at Ballast Point. Pours a nice orange with aromas of sweet honey and a little bit of floral and resiny hops. Flavor is pretty sweet (the guy pouring said that when extremely fresh the hops are much more assertive and I would have loved to try it then.) As is, it’s got enough hops in it to keep it from being cloying.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle from South Bay Drugs & Liquors. One of the best DIPAs on the market. Has all the bases covered....awesome hop blast to the nose, outstanding flavor....not so much due to any great balance between malt and hop, but more due to the fact that the intense hoppiness is just that good. Not thin on the palate either........quite a tasty brew.
