ACHops (951) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours slightly cloudy medium pale orange with minimal head. Aroma is minimal - mild pale malt and lighly fruity spicy hops. Taste is big, abrasive juicy caramel malt with assertive earthy piney hops on the finish. Sizable abv is evident. Maybe think of this as an imperial Big Eye? Wish they’d had this on tap at the brewery in SD when I visited earlier this year; I bet this would be better fresh.

You can tell from the start this is serious craft brew. Presents in a sniffer perfectly. The high ABA is not hidden as well as some brews. Taste of citrus is ever present about long finish and bitter but not unlikeable. High marks on this fine brew

Bottle from Brewdog online. Dark gold/orange with slim white head. Aroma is malty, hoppy, caramel, pine. Taste doesn’t’ disappoint similar elements, touch of alcohol warmth, nicely balanced sweet and bitter, medium body, soft carbonation. Long bitter finish. Very good.

Lukaduke (2664) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 30, 2015
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.
