Bomber courtesy of my secret santa joeneugs. Pours tiny hazy deep golden with a rather fluffy offwhite head that is pretty quick to dissipate while leaving some sticky trace on the glass. Smell is sweet, slightly malty, fruity and hoppy with biscuits, crackers, grapefruit juice, pineapple, mango, alcohol, oily pine, resinous wood, oily fresh lemon zest, caramel, lychee and cape gooseberries. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and fruity with grapefruit juice, oily pine, resinous wood, biscuits, alcohol, orange zest, lemon zest, overripe tropical fruits, crackers, caramel and hints of gooseberries and green kiwi fruit, mouthfeel is round, oily bitter, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with caramel, oily pine, pineapple, resinous wood, biscuits, alcohol, grapefruit rinds and green kiwi fruit. Solid stuff...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
