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

beer-yum (1042) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 6, 2016
Restrained pine citrus aroma in an amber pour. Initial taste is ’wow’ -how do they manage to be so laid back. Only later does the hints of strength make an appearance - and knock your socks off! An excellent brew - but one surpassed by the local (NZ) version = Liberty’s (remember that America) Citra.

jandd1983 (3443) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2016
On tap at 109 Brews. It poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma was of toffee, pine, malts and hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, florals, toasted malts, pine and a spicy hops. Quite tasty.

blueshockey24 (180) - Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours Orangish Amber. Aroma of sweet citrus. Taste is sweet and malty with a citrus pine alcohol heat finish. It’s pretty good but i like Sculpin better.

Svesse (7500) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2016
(Draught at Monk’s American Bar, Stockholm, 1 Feb 2016) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with citrus, orange marmalade, caramel and resin. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of caramel, resin, citrus, marmalade, apricots and a generous resiny/citric bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Quite powerful with an impressive hop presence and a touch of alcohol. Very nice.

flatmatt (1347) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours clear, slightly orange amber with an off-white head. Fairly juicy piney citrus aroma. Flavor is piney, grassy, floral hops finishing with a bit of toasty malt. Solid.

Hop_Hedonist (392) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2016
Solid DIPA although not my favourite - great balance between sweet caramel malt and flowery hops although I was left wanting more hops - full-bodied - not aggressively bitter (as I prefer) - smooth drinker - alcohol invisible.

nerdboy19 (129) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 21, 2016
Very bitter Imperial IPA. Lots of tropical fruits, earthy, caramel malts aroma. medium carb, full bodied, very bitter and malty sweet. Nice but what I can get here is average 4month+ old so I should try the fresh one again when I visit California.

rondphoto (3337) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 18, 2016
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear and dark amber color, long-lasting 1" ivory head, Aroma of pine hops and malt. Taste is huge malt that is beaten down by strong pine hops that grow through the palate, heading from there to a finish that shows a little of tyhe malt for an encore. A huge brew, too much for most food or snacks.

ibrubeer (237) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Draft @ Ballast Point tasting room. Fairly malty flavor. Nice hoppy aroma. Light amber color. Pleasant hoppy flavor. Didn’t taste like 10%! Good beer!

Finally got my hands on a nice variety of fresh Ballast Point brews, was super stoked for the DIPA and wow, what a let down. Boozy, unoriginal, pretty lame to be honest.
