Clear orange. White foam. Sweet grape fruit on the nose. Lots of bitter grape fruit and grassy harsh hops. Medium body. Very nice but a little too harsh for my taste.

71 day old 12oz bottle to snifter. Crystal clear copper. White head. I wonder how fresh it needs to be to live up to the hype. Still good.

Finally got my hands on a nice variety of fresh Ballast Point brews, and this one was "just" a good IPA, nothing crazy like hype would have you believe. I found the grapefruit version of Sculpin better.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This IPA pours a gorgeous clear bright golden orange color with a good sized bone-white head on it that left spotting lacing on my glass. The nose on this beer is very unique and interesting for an IPA. I think mango is the strongest scent followed by passion fruit, peaches, lemon and orange zest, floral hops, and a slight pine bitterness as well. The smell on this beer is leaping from my glass, and it never left for the entire beer. The flavor profile is loaded with citrus fruits with grapefruit and tangerines being very dominant followed up with only a slight touch of caramel malt. The hops are extremely fresh and vibrant on this offering. The malt is only barely noticeable, but somehow supports the hops beautifully. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation that left a very dry finish on the back of my palate. The drinkability is superb on this beer, and is one of the best IPAs I’ve have ever had the pleasure of tasting

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden orange with a nice off white head that fades and leaves good lacing in the glass. Aroma is lots of mango and apricots, a bit of caramel malt. Taste is very bright and fruity with tons of apricot and a bit of mango, bitter hops and then some sweetness then more hops cleanse the palate, good ipa but stone ipa is still way better.

In the bottle in Seoul. Decent IPA, but was overhyped and didn't live up the expectation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is hazy amber, with a thick creamy beige head, which clings to the glass. Aroma- orange, pineapple, creamy malt, tropical fruit juice, pine, hop resin. Yum. Taste- massive hop bitterness, orange peel, pineapple, juicy tropical fruit, pine, grapefruit, hop resins. Huge bitter fruit, but also there’s biscuity malt underpinning the whole thing. Mouthfeel is oily and clingy, hugely long bitter finish. Superb IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle@konttori. Light copper color with a small silky head. Aroma is earthy with some pine, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is malty with long bitter and a bit sweet aftertaste. Flavors of malt, grape, pine, nuts. Very nice aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear copper hue with a bright white head that seems to last for quite a while. Smells of tangerines, caramel malts, grapefruit, lemon zest, pine a bit of earth. The caramel seems to mix well with the citrusy tangerines and grapefruit giving this a terrific aroma on the nose. Sweet oranges and tangerines on the palate lead the way but quickly turn to a stronger hoppy presence. Nice piney presence mixes well with the earthiness but the sweet citrus fruits and strong hops are the predominate flavors. Wonderful!
