Pours orange/golden. Aroma is one of the best ever in my opinion. Apricots orange jelly come to mind. Flavor was a bit too much citrus at first, but as I come back to it, I think it opens up as it warms. I liken it to grapefuit with a bit of sugar. Finish is nice a lingering with a bit of a hop bite. Very well done.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 Fantastic ipa, ... pine, citrus, bready goodness. Lingering smooth bitterness. Quenching and easy to drink.

Color and smell were amazing. Liked the body and head remained constant. Clearly deserves rank amongst the best.

Bottle from local grocery. Good aroma. Well balanced hop flavor. Very impressed. Never had ballast point before, but will look out for their beers again. Very good.

I’m not liking the lack of dating on this beer. It’s brewed in San Diego and I’m in Massachusetts, where I purchased it off a wooden uncooled shelf after a long, hot summer. I see that it is a highly rated brew (there’s nothing higher than 100, unless you play football and always give 110%), but what I’m drinking just seems pleasantly ordinary. In which case, depending on price and availability (never seen it anywhere else in MA other than Trubeer in Easthampton) I might have it again.

Wow! Pours a long lasting head with a good hoppy flavor with a firm hop bitterness. The maltiness shines through adding a supporting balance for this tasty, well brewed beer.

Had at forum shops in Ceasars in las vegas. 6.75 for a twelve ounce. Expensive but in Vegas. Big floral nose. not real bitter on ront end. Excellent hop balance. Very light to non exsistant malt profile, but perfect for an IPA style. would drink all day, but too much $$$$. great brew.

By far the cleanest, most well balanced IPA I have tried. Not too heavy and complimented by a citrus aroma. Not overly hoppy but remains full of flavor. The body is solid throughout. Overall one of my top 5 beers. Try it!
