4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mildly hazy orange with some light carbonation and a filmy head that has good retention. Aroma has a very strong apricot, mango and grapefruit scent along with some pale malts. Flavor is very citrus forward with grapefruit, apricot, piney hops, resin, mango and peaches with some slight caramel maltiness. Body is heavy along with the carbonation. I think I may have found my new favorite IPA that isnít local!

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Smells of grapefruit and orange peel. Tastes of a light bitter with a medium sweetness, well balanced but not perfectly. Light bodied. Light carbonation. Texture is syrupy. Finishes dry.

Iíve been fairly impressed with the offerings from Ballast Point that Iíve been able to try so far. Itís newer to me, but good beer. The aroma is booming with fruity hop smells of peaches, mango, lemon, and grapefruit. Had a nice golden tone to it with some haze. Some sweetness to start followed by a good medium bitter. If you havenít had a chance to try Ballast Point, I suggest you do.

Nicely carbonated and clear golden in color. The aroma is of citrus, hops, and lite sweet malts. A simple, balanced, and perfect IPA. The flavor matches the aroma. The finish has a mild bitterness that is very pleasant. It doesnít linger either. Overall this is an excellent beverage to try.
