growler. Pale golden w/ struggling petite white head. Nose is every single sweet citrus, all of them... at once. Mandarin orange in sweet water, under-ripe grape fruit, gardenia, and booze. Exquisite DIPA.

beeratarian (142) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pours a nice, clear, light amber with 1/2 inch white head. Aroma of new hop varieties like mosaic, piney alcohol. Flavor is more of the same. Rough, grassiness. Long, bitter finish, probably the best part of it is the finish. A little boozy.

Jerm719 (128) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2015
Huge hoppy nose. Full bodied, pale malt dominated by big piney, citrusy, sharp hops. Alcohol well hidden. Great dbl IPA. Big long finish, fading with an almost copper tasting hopness.. Did someone throw a penny in my beer???!!!

Atom (1630) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear orange/golden with a large off-white head. Orange citrus aroma with light caramel malt. Sweet caramel malt flavor is quickly over taken my big hops, citrus orange and grapefruit, lightly tropical, with bitter pine. Nice!

anderson01 (227) - Idaho, USA - APR 18, 2015
Cloudy in appearance that is golden in color. Thick frothy head with glass covering lacing. I smell bananas, cherry and hops. Slick texture that has a long sweet finish. First thing that popped into my head when i tasted it was banana cream pie. There is a hint of alcohol but very well hidden. I am very impressed with this beer.

dpgjrnhcraftbrew (64) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2015
Amber color with a nice off white head and some pretty good lacing too. Aroma of hops, grass, and pine. Taste was well balanced with the hops, grass, and pine working together. There was a bite to the palate and a decent bitterness when finishing. Great imperial ipa by Ballast Point here!

badhack (380) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 18, 2015
Hops from beginning to end. High hopped, but balanced with the flavor and alcohol. Itís 10%. Malt, bread and lots of bread crust. Finish lasts forever. Nose is sweet, fruity and alcohol. with orange, grapefruit, resin and maybe a little stone fruit and a tiny bit of banana. Mouthfeel is a little sticky, dryer, and not nearly as sweet as the nose. Also fresh cut grass.

Guerde (1207) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2015
(bottle) Pours a semi-hazy orange color with a medium off-white head. Aroma holds a nice bouquet of fruit flavors with green grapes, kiwi, fresh lime, potentially pineapple, and perhaps strawberry. Really nice smell, and one of the better noses Iíve encountered in a DIPA.The alcís here too, but it doesnít singe, merely leaves a little bit of warmth in the nostrils upon sniffing. The flavor is a bit of a letdown when compared with the aroma, as it holds just a glimmer of kiwi, some grapefruit, pine, and a medium intensity astringency on the finish that is fairly tea-like. The alc is stronger here and gives a peppery vibe towards the far finish. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is dialed in. Overall this was a solid beer that is memorable due to the unique and pleasant aroma.

Poured a medium garnet with a lively head. Strong hoppy nose that followed in the mouth. This one was a little bit past its age, but still held good heat in th mouth from the ABV. Nice sipping beer.
