PacNWDad (89) - Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2014
On draft at Chuck’s 85th as part of a 4-Ballast Point beer sampler. Golden hue, pretty clear, thick head and lots of lace on the sides. Strong hops notes, with lots of citrus - grapefruit in particular, and tropical fruits like passionfruit. Caramel and brown sugar from the malt. Strong bitter flavor, then sweetness from the malt, overall a good balance. Body is heavy and oily, a little alcohol pepperiness, not highly carbonated. Overall another great beer from a great brewery.

slowrunner77 (5942) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"a little too sticky and malt heavy to be great, as the malt muted the hops a little too much for my personal taste. that said, it was quite good, just as a change of pace. i’d take a sculpin in a heartbeat before this darker, heavier brew. 8/12 - musta got an old bottle - on tap it’s faaaantastic! 3.8 to 4.2 or higher!"

Overall great brew kick butt aroma of floral and pine. Big huge hop flavor too. Palate of oily hops was a little much. Taste overwhemlming hoppy.

orangesol (876) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Served on cask at Al’s of Hampden into a nonic pint glass. This one is dry hopped with Crystal and Horizon Hops.

A - Pours a hazy light orange/yellow with a thick two finger head with thick, sticky, lacing down the entire glass.

S - Strong pungent smell of hops with hints of grapefruit, tangerine, and mango with a slightly sweet aroma from the malt. A faint smell of caramel comes out as it warms.

T - Fairly bitter thanks to all those hops. Not as much fruit as in the nose, the malt seems to be dulling down those flavors a bit. A bit sweet from the grains. Very well balanced. Not as good as the sculpin casks I have had but still a very good offering from ballast point.

M - Medium-Heavy body and flavor with a good balance of flavors. It could use a little more carbonation is it appears a little dead in the glass.

D - Drinkability is fairly high on this one. I would like the hops to come thru a tiny bit more in the taste but still an excellent cask offering.
