10/26/2014. 22 oz. bottle. Floral, hoppy aromas with hints of caramel. Typical SD style IPA with all it entails. Big and bitter, loads of hops and a very long finish.

PacNWDad (92) - 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.

"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.
