Big bottle pour....btw, the label is an awesome piece of artwork! I would love to find a print of it. Wafting scents of citrus, piney hops before I even start drinking! Copper/straw color with a tiny haze, very nice appearance. Head is fine and foamy about 3/8", but with lots of fine bubbles. Great aromas of citrusy pine, some alcohol (10%abv btw!), mild grassy notes and a hint of mash. Well balanced in the taste department, the hops is prevalent up front with a light bite of bitterness, moves to a sweeter finish. Again, the alcohol is also noticeable that adds a bit of warmth, which I find interesting. The finish is a tad thick, and the hops sticks around on the tongue till the next drink. Would have preferred a thinner finish, but I am still very impressed with this brew overall. Yes, I have to say that the earthquake state knows how to brew a very impressive IPA. This one is fully enjoyable, and the abv certainly catches up to you quickly! Damn!

Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready malty tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

Orange, rosemary and tea aromas blend well with caramel sweetness and hop bitterness. Medium body and not too sticky. Bitter finish lingers in the back of my throat. A solid DIPA.

I think what I like best about this one is how it feels on the palate, very smooth and silky. All the right hops and malts blend together nice. I would also recommend to not drink this super cold. It get much more interesting when it warms up a bit. Never disappointed with Ballast Point though.

Pours golden, with slight orange tint, and minimal head. I taste grapefruit. This is really nice...and strong. Worth savoring. Great brewery.
