Tap @ RnH - pours orange, arouma is citrusy and crispy malts. floral, pine and tangy notes. medium bodied and high (excessive?) carbonation. Tasty though, and the alcohol is well hidden.

Leighton (18520) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Tap at Rattle and Hum. Pours glowing orange-gold with a decent, fluffy white head. Big citrus aroma of pineapple, grapefruit and orange, and strong notes of caramel malts. The flavor is potent but extremely well-balanced, making it an easy drink. Lots more citrus and heavy bitterness, but the massive malt backbone evens things out. Very sweet from start to finish, with a lingering citrus, very mild pine, and plenty of sugar. Medium bodied, average carbonation. So great.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 21, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Poured an unclear amber. Nose is big fruity piny hops that say look out here we come. And come they do. This is very well carbonated so it along with the great taste it’s almost too easy to drink. Very dry and not fruity. It’s bitter in the middle and in the end an leaves you thirsty which is great until your glass is empty.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 21, 2010
On tap at Rattle n Hum during the Ballast Point event on 4/20/10. Poured into an uber Delirium glass.... hazy orange. Taste is largely citrus... tangerines, grapefruit. ABV is well hidden. A monster brew, full of flavor but not burning with bitterness or alcohol... just delicious. Better than most IIPAs. Near world class.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2010
The aroma is awesome, sweet hops with fruit and citrus notes. The orange cloudy color has a decent creamy head. The flavors of citrus, hops, and crisp ale blend together smoothly on the palate.

madvike (3200) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2010
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.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 20, 2010
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 (16053) - 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.
