Crazy delicious. I like my big IPA’s to pucker me up and say "Damn, man!". This does that to me. Like freshly squeezed hops and hemp, this is a fresh tasting, big time IPA. One of my favorites from Ballast Point.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle into dogfish ipa glass. Golden orange clean appearance with a hearty white head. Smells very heavy on pine with citrus overtones. Fruit is in the background too, apricot I think? Bitter front that gets a bit malty, then more fruit and citrus, mostly grapefruit, into a bitter finish. Nice, crisp, refreshing, balanced.

Klart mahogni med lavt hvitt skum. Frisk duft av sitrus og noe gran. Sitrus skall og karamell i smaken. Skuffende tynn munnfølelse med en tørr avslutning.

Bottle. Pours golden yellow with white head that dissipates. Piney hop aroma. Nice hop flavor that isn't too overwhelming or boozy.

Pours a very clear gold in color with only a ring of froth. Smell is very piney hops. Taste is very green, brutally bitter hops. This is very fresh and very green. Very bittering and tongue ripping. This is a aggressive and brutal onslaught on your palate. The bottle is incredible, I could only imagine how this is on draft. Wow.

Strong citrus bitter hop nose. Gold amber, with a small head and great lacing. A little syrupy. Tart acidity undertones. Citrus hops dominate the palate, lemon, grapefruit. Bitter hop carbonation, and slight lingering bitterness aftertaste.

Bottle from PeteinSD
Awesome aroma dripping of resinous hop oils. The flavor is a little lighter than the aroma and has some more fruit than the aroma would lead you to believe. Grapefruit surrounded by cannabis. A DIPA aroma with a lighter IPA flavor and body. Good stuff.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2012 the aroma right off the bat was the citrus of the hops and as it warmed some i picked up the apricot and peach...what a wonderful scent to have in this beer...medium bodied and smooooooth...hops do no over power this beer at all..the citrus flavor and the apricot are forefront on this one and the smoothness as it goes down. on the back end you do get a bit of the lemon blended with the bitterness of the hops and it works...very very good beer.
