Every bit as good as an IPA. Big citrus hops, refined, refreshing, just plain yummy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating from two days ago up the river. Bomber. Aroma is doughy, catty, pineapple, gun metal (not intrusive), wet hayfield, skunk (not too off-putting). Smells like a lot of German lagers after the catty tropical hop notes fade out. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium off-white head with great retention; leaves some lace. Taste is bitter backed by a nice candy sweetness, grainy with a lingering bitter finish. Carbonation is high, medium body. Doesn’t taste exactly fresh. Don’t see a date on the bottle. Nevertheless, it’s not bad, but I expect more from this brewery. It’s kind of dull, but I’m sure it was better fresh.

Tap at Red Cow in St. Paul. Gold pour with a spotty white head. Floral and citrus aroma. Kind of sweet smelling. Medium to lighter palate. Finishes smooth. Not over the top in any way but nice overall.

Bottle dated about a month ago. I have a feeling it has fallen off a bit but it’s still pretty nice. Piney, citrus-y hop flavors big on the nose. Taste is clean with hops and bready malt flavors. Balanced and enjoyable.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Thanks to our host for this winner. Clear pale gold beer, good fluffy white head. Palate is very light and airy. Superfine carbonation. Very light malt base, slightly sweet. Little floralness. Hops are a nice combo of mild skunk, resinous orange and mild tropical fruits. Light airy finish. Tasty and super drinkable.

Den här var riktigt bra. Fruktig i aromen, bra fyllighet i smak och kropp, beska.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Den har en mycket angenäm arom, påminner något om parfym. Smakar mycket humle men man kan ändå känna malten och det avslutad med en tydlig härlig beska.

Bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting. Big juicy IPA with big juicy aroma, fresh, zesty and full of life. Bitter grapefruit, orange peel and lime batter you before a dry finish. Lovely stuff.

The aroma coming through is pine and floral. The 7% alcohol is present, but not over powering. The hops are there to enjoy, but balanced and smooth. Full on the palate with a nice lingering citrus finish. Another good beer from ballast.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2014 Tap at Young & Jackson’s. Pours bright and vibrant orange with a small, firm white cap on top. Nose is full of pine and big tropical fruits - pineapple, mango and lychee. Kind of like a slightly toned down Sculpin with a heavier base to it. Lager yeast goes well with the huge amount of hops. Plenty tropical and piney with typical sweet lager yeast which keeps it all in check. a solid drop
