4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Essa maravilhosa breja é uma imperial IPA da cervejaria artesanal Ballast Point. Cor amarelo-ouro, com media formacao de espuma e excelente aroma cítrico, floral. No paladar, um bom corpo, com perfeito equilíbrio entre amargor e dulçor. Na boca, lembra manga, grapefruit, abacaxi, maracujá. Na seqüência o amargor entra, de forma estúpida! Final seco com retrogosto lembrando resina e pinho. Excelente!

On draft at Ballast Point. My 100 on rate beer and reasonably so! The best IPA out there! Insane hoppy aroma with a pungent, piney palate. One of the GOATs!

Long Island, NY - 22 oz. bottle poured a clear amber color with moderate head and medium lacing. Aroma is complex with fruits, mango, citrus, floral hops and pine. Taste was initially sweet then developed into fruity hops and the a crisp bitterness. What I liked from this IPA was that the hops was not over powering. A really good IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grapfruit in the aroma, tropcial fruit and a bit of malt. Copper colored, not very long lasting white head. Very piney dry taste upfront with a dry finish. Not overly complex but very unique. A bit of malt and tropical fruit in the aftertaste. Not overly complex but very refined and unique. Carbonation feels very fine. Medium bodied.

Slightly hazy, amber liquid with a big white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Very fruity aroma, citrus and tropical fruits with a hint of caramel in the background. The taste is distinctly bitter with a little more caramel then on the nose. Long bitter aftertaste Medium to low carbonation with tiny bubbles, decent mouthfeel. Very, very good even if this bottle was a tad old.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very light orange color with minimal head. Upon closer inspection there is a slight haze and I can see some extremely small particles floating around. Aroma is citrus and pine and I also detect some tropical fruits. There is a lot going on here. Taste is similar to the aroma with citrus being well represented along with some pine notes. The body is light to medium and the finish is very dry with a lingering bitterness. This would be fantastic on a hot summer day and what you would expect from a West Coast IPA. One of the better IPAs I have had.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours slightly hazy orange with big foamy off-white head. Big bold aroma of herbal hop, ripe peach and mango. Medium carbonation and light feel. Flavor matches the aroma: herbal hop with grassy/woodsy bitterness, slightly sweet with ripe fruit, crisp malt along with slight pepperiness from the alcohol. Finishes dry with lasting grassy/piney hop bitterness, slightly soapy though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty citrusy IPA. Very strong grapefruit flavor - round citrusy nose. Tastes more sour than bitter. Finishes very dry. There are plenty of hops in there...but it starts off and ends with so much citrus, that it feels like a hop cameo.
