From South Bay. Same hop/malt profile as dreadnaught just not as peachy and complex. Really fantastic.

JonMoore (2012) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
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 (2659) - 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.

amber color; citrusy hop aroma; dry, citrusy hop flavor; lots of citrusy, grapefruit notes; very light malt base; all about the citrusy hops; surprisingly light malt base for the alcohol levels achieved

Nothing special but has a swimmingly good balance of pine, grapefruit and orange marmalade with burnt caramel and ......whoops forgot it was 10% which is the most distinguishing comment.

Decent appearance but I think the hops were a bit oxidized. Very good body and the beer is quite drinkable. Don’t notice the alcohol.
