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.

Ok its official I just dont like Ballast Point hoppy offerings... Not sure what it is they all taste like hop jello. Anyhow, pours a medium orange golden color with lots of aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pine and some sweet pineapple. Palate follows but is masked in this weird layer of foggy gelatin, not sure what it is, its apparent through the whole line. Never had a beer disagree with my palate as much as these. Abrasive, boozy. Meh.

amber color; citrusy hop aroma; dry, citrusy hop flavor; lots of citrusy, grapefruit notes; very light malt base; all about the citrusy hops; surprisingly light malt base for the alcohol levels achieved

Nothing special but has a swimmingly good balance of pine, grapefruit and orange marmalade with burnt caramel and ......whoops forgot it was 10% which is the most distinguishing comment.

drpimento (2460) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Decent appearance but I think the hops were a bit oxidized. Very good body and the beer is quite drinkable. Don’t notice the alcohol.

JK (4916) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Copper color. Dry hop aroma. Flavor has sweet malt, which I expected based on the high abv.. Balanced by the dryness of the dorado hops. Dry and earthy flavors, some wild grass and flowers. Fairly heavy palate, and it took awhile to drink one glass. Good.
