3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: slightly hazy yellow. Full white head on the pour.
Poured from a 22OZ bomber into a pint glass.
Aroma- this beer had not much that could be identified by the aroma, maybe some basic hops?
Appearance- a clear nice golden yellow with about a 1.5 inch white head
Taste- Fairly good flavor, I could really taste the hops
Overall- A fairly good beer, it is not my favorite Ballast Point beer but it was not a disappointment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some light citrus brings this together for a decent drink. Pours golden with ok head and lacing. Some citrus, and a touch of trashy aroma in finish with some bitterness - perhaps I just don’t prefer lagering. Comes together well though, for style. Tap at Churchkey.

Sample at Daily Growler UA. The beer pours a slightly hazy straw-gold color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits, herbal hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of grapefruity hops and pineapple, toasted malt and pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the better IPLs out there in my humble opinion. Manages a delicate balance of bready malts and intensely aromatic and fruity hops. Bitter leaning, but not overly so. "
