3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Premier Gourmet. Pours a clear orange colour with modest-sized off-white head. Aroma has big resiny hops, some floral and fruity character as well as some graininess. Flavour is solid resin, some floral hops, a little citrus and an underlying graininess. Decent bitterness in finish. Good one.

Pours out a nice copper color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet citrusy hops, light floral notes, some tropical fruit and light cracker. Taste is complex for so low Abv. Nice citrus, tropical fruit light cracker malts. Damn lots of flavor and super crushable

Small, tight, white head, good lace and a clear, copper hued appearence. Nice flowery, grassy nose with light fruity citrusy notes. Nice mouthfeel, good carbonation, lightly oily and a hint resiny, clean and light. Dry, pale malts, nicely biscuity and freshly grainy, slightly juicy hops and a clean dry finish with a balanced bitterness. Cool little quaffer! Pretty tasty, clean aromas, nice mouth feel for such a small brew. Cans from statelineliquors.

Can. Piney nose, thick floral notes, too. Medium straw color, thick head. Pine, mixed tropical fruit. goes to moderate bitterness, and has some hop tracks in final. Thin-medium body. Light enough and tasty enough, as a session beer.

Thanks Jim for sending.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange to yellow color with a slim finger’s worth of white foaminess that quickly dissipated leaving some ever so light stringy lacing sticking in parts and then sliding.
The smell had a sweet to slightly piney aromatic hops in front of a light caramel malt.
The taste combined freshly and gracefully the hops to the malts leaving no aftertaste and a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionable aspect running about it. The carbonation was somewhat smooth but also a semi - sharp bitter bite on the tongue.
Overall, I say this was definitely one of the better session IPA’s I’ve had. Ballast Point is quickly growing on me.

On tap at Ballast Point. Pours a light orange with a little bit of a head and aromas of soapy hops, oranges and pine. Flavor is very nice... like a light IPA... lots of flavor, enough malt to make it interesting, but not filling. Very interesting and good.
