Orange color with a lasting offwhite head. Smell is grapefruit, and orange hoppiness and sweet malt. Sweet tasting with a light bitter finish. Well balanced.

Cybercat (3571) - Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours beautiful dark amber with a thick and fluffy pale buff head. Strong aroma is quite hoppy, resiny, with fruity hints. Bold flavor charges fierce hops across the tongue, resiny and evergreen, somewhat bitter, subtly malty and fruity, with just a whisper of honey. Texture is firm and smooth, going down well, if not too fizzy; finish is evergreen hoppy and a little fruity. Glad that I finally caught one!

mrhopsbeertalk (165) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2015
A really solid DIPA with a hop aroma focussed on citrus, floral and orange. Lots of clean crisp bitterness with similar flavors tempered very slightly by the caramel malts.

Nice balanced Imperial IPA. Pours a beautiful amber color. Scents of citrus and sweetness. You get hops, but also a lot of citrus flavors like orange, grapefruit, and passion fruit. First time for this beer and I would have it again.

Ericular (705) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Bottle #1: Pours a nice clear amber with lasting white head leaving great lacing. Aroma is boozy pine hops. Taste is strong overall, with resinous, alcohol-laden hops up front. Drying with continued alcohol and hops in the middle, into a warming bitter aftertaste. I know itís 10%, but this is way too much alcohol. Bottle #2: This stays relatively drinkable, although itís not on my side of the earthy/vegetal<-->citrus explosion DIPA spectrum. Tempted to move taste to a 7, but letís wait for the other 2 bottles first. Bottle #3: Lots of alcohol. Way too much.

ChrisSc (290) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2015
12 oz bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Bottled 15 008. Pours golden on color with amber tint. Transparent. Small white head. Aroma is citrusy, orange in particular. Floral. A little piney. Alcohol is also notable. Taste is bitter upfront. A little sharpness from alcohol. Medium/full bodied for the style. Average carbonation. Long alcoholic finish. Overall this is a good ipa, but the alcohol is not super balances

bigda83 (310) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours orange and clear. Aroma of lots of citrus and juicy. Taste was orange, lemon, grapefruit, and intensely bitter. Bitterness lasted throughout. Not their best offering, but not bad.

Orange pour, small off white head. Fantastic aroma of orange, clementine, grapefruit, flavor is more citrus, with a strong caramel malty backbone.

Bomber - great golden/amber color coupled with clarity and a light head. Love the huge piney grapefruit aroma. Another excellent IPA from Ballast Point. The entire array of hop flavors burst in your mouth - resinous pine, citrus zest, juniper, tart floral and ruby grapefruit. Can't ask for more IPA goodness.

Jlax10 (14) - Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Poured from a growler on 1-2-14....pours a golden color with a very nice off white head. Head stays with you throughout, so you definitely get some nice lacing. Smell of hops punching you in the face with lots of citrus. Taste follows the nose, lots of hops and citrus up front with a nice piney bitterness to top it off. Medium body with just the right amount of carbonation. Little boozy, but what DIPA isn't? Good beer.
