4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 Bottle. Amber with a white head that laces well. Aroma of lemon, kumquat, stone fruits, pineapple. A little oily, but pretty light-bodied. Taste is barely sweet, but quite fruity, with stone and tropical fruits; lemon. Crisp finish with a fair bit of bitterness (although a little more wouldn’t have hurt). Alcohol is dangerously well-hidden. Not interesting to drink, just very good. 
A bunch of these about 6 weeks old, if the bb is 150 days. A little more complex than before with some citrus flowers in there with the rest. Probably better within a fortnight, but this is very lovely indeed.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours cloudy golden with a nice dense two finger head that has duration. Aroma is resinous oily hops, some citrus, but mostly piney resinous hops. The taste is sweet light malt with a wallop of piney bitter hops, now this is an IPA, bold and in your face hops, yet light enough malt to be massively drinkable, there is a nice fruity character to it without it being fruity too, if that makes any sense. I loved this beer, one of the best IPA’s I have ever had, man I love beer.

I've had this before and didn't much care for it. This batch (6-pack that just arrived at the store) was fantastic. It pours a beautiful orange and smells like fresh sticky hops. Fruity hops, like citrusy orange, mango & grapefruit. It tastes much the same, juicy! Bitter on the finish but not overly, all in all it's delicious, balanced and in my opinion, what a great IPA should taste like.

On tap at Money Plays. Pours a clear amber with thick frothy white head sticky lacing. The aroma is floral hops and pine. Medium mouthfeel with a strong hop bite and bitter finish. Easy to drink,really enjoyed this one. An impressive IPA from Ballast Point.
