Quite possibly the best IPA I've ever tasted (haven't tried Pliny or Heady Topper though). Nevertheless it's just a damn fine IPA. Very smooth, not bitter, yet has all the citrusy, piney, hoppy flavor that you love from an IPA. Great mouthfeel. Aroma is citrus.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
650ml bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours golden with a thick white head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is subtle with hints of lemon citrus, apricot and perhaps a touch of mango. Body is quite light with a medium to low carbonation. Taste is lovely with lots of citrus characters with a subtle dry bitter finish. Such an approachable IPA. Smooth and crisp and just Awesome !

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The smell was superb, one of the finest Iíve felt. Very fruity (9/10). The appearance is a flat yellow. Nothing special (3/5). The taste is very light, maybe too light for me (7/10). Palate leaves a hoppy & fruity ending (4/5). Overally an excellent beer, but for being honest, I expected more. Iíve tried better from Ballast Point (16/20)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 11.03.14.
A: Orange. Maybe honey malt. It smells sweet, but itís not a very strong smelling IPA.
A: 1/2 finger head with a moderate pour. Hazy pale orange body.
T: Orange, tropical fruit, and honey malt dominate. Pine, lemon, and biscuity malt are subtle.
P: Crisp with bubbles on the back end.
O: This is in the San Diego style, obviously, but itís a well-balanced IPA. It has a subtle piney bite on the back end. Overall, itís not very strong, but it might make a good entry IPA. Stone IPA is similar but seems to have a stronger kick to it as itís more hop forward.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is dank, sweet tropical fruit, some malt, delicious. Appearance is gold-orange, opaque, white head. Taste is bitter, lemon tea flavor, bitter hops, piny, balanced. Mouthfeel is decent, crisp, decent carbonation, not too bad. Overall, itís pretty good but I expected more.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber. The pour is a darker orange-ish gold with a thin white head and some great lace as it falls to a soapy film. The aroma is just great. There is a lot of tropical fruits and a malty hop presence. The pineapple and tangerine really pop through, but it's not overly done. The maltiness is a little surprising here. The flavor is much more malt forward than I was expecting. The fruits and hoppiness are really relaxed, letting the malts control it. There is a light bitterness on the back end. The mouth feel is really good. The carbonation is a little light, so it does fall off of the palate pretty quick. The aftertaste is really malty and dank, not really bright and hoppy as I would like to see. Not bad by any means, but it could be better, for sure

Drank ice cold from a bottle. Great hoppy citrus aroma. Fruity light flavour with a generous dose of hops. Really nice and refreshing.

First I noticed the awesome head this beer gets on the pour. Then the awesome fruity/citrusy aroma. And the clarity of this beer blew me away as it was crystal clear. First taste I noticed the tangerine/orange hints then on the swallow moved to the grapefruit pine bite finish LOVE this beer. Great American IPA and first beer for me from this Brewery.
