Grapefruit hoppy aroma come from this clear pale yellow brew. Sweet grapefruit taste with an underlying bitterness which combines well with the light body and crispness of this ipa

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 Bra balans med fin god arom med frukt o citrus. Beskan ligger bra i munnen med lång eftersmak. Detta är utifrån att vara en Ipa en mycket bra sådan.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Pours a little on the light side but otherwise amber. Head dissipates pretty rapidly leaving some good lacing.
S: Aroma is very fruity. Appricot... orange are the big players. Some hops but lighter.
T: Subtle fruit notes. A little bit of fruit. A little bit of malt. The bitterness seems to overwhelm the other notes and fade quickly leaving a dull bitterness.
P: Carbonation is a little aggressive. Decent flavor development.
I was so excited to try this beer! Great ratings.... picture of a sculpin (my wife totally takes care of them at the aquarium!) IPA, Ballast Point!!! But this beer was pretty disappointing. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good either. A little uncontrolled... doesn’t bring anything special to the table. The Big Eye IPA and the Calico Amber were way way better. I have a growler of this bad boy in the fridge so I will see if it gets better.

This beer pours out a pale orange with a white head and lots of bubbles. Aromas of weed, grapefruit, and alcohol. I like the flavor a lot more, waves of every kinds of citrus fruit I can think of. Some sweet and slightly bready malt lies underneath. There is a lingering orange zest and bitter aftertaste. Delicious and refreshing, it showcases what you can do with hop aromatics and flavors over hop bitterness.

Flaska bishops marina med päronen - doftar otroligt friskt. Mörkgul med vitt skum och lätt dimmig. Tydlig men behaglig beska. Smakar lite blodapelsin.

Poured from 2 bombers into a pint glass. This is the first time I rated beer in the opposite, usually I go to places and buy beer, drink it, and then rate it. This time I found a highly rated beer, sought it out, and then drank it. It’s funny how expectations change things because after reading the reviews of this beer I guess I must have been expecting a genie to fly out of the bottle and grant me three wishes. Well since this did not happen I will tell you what those wishes would have been. 1.) I wish this beer was $12 a six pack instead of $9 a bomber. b.) I wish this beer was a bit stronger maybe closer to 8% for the price. 3.) I wish I could taste any of the fruit listed on the side of the bottle that was mirrored in many of the reviews. I have had $100 a bottle cognac and can appreciate the reasons why it was 3 times the price, this is not the same, there are better IPA for cheaper. It’s good not legendary.

Another solid offering from Ballast point. Good flavour, not sure its really a 4.05 but its is definitely a well made beer.
