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.

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.

Bursting with citrus and pine aroma. Pours a deep golden color with generous white head. The taste is bitter but opens up to some sweeter tropical flavors towards the end. This beer is so good, I feel lucky to be able to drink it.

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.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is all hops, very crisp, citrus, pine and herby notes. Flavor is sweet (like lemonade is sweet) but dominated by the tangy, tart hops, grapefruit, pine, grass and subtle earthy notes as well. Leaves the mouth with a wonderful tingly, pucker.
