4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours into glass a hazy amber/orange, with minimal white head that fizzes away within a minute. Almost no lacing.
Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, hops. Very pleasant.
Really pleasant, heavenly mouthfull of citrus hops, grapefruits, pineapple all swirling on the tongue complimenting each other. With a medium body, this is good stuff.
Fantastic. A great example of the great West Coast IPA. Look forward to more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Brewmaster’s in Wilson. Golden hue, normal clarity with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus & lemon. Heavy bitter grapefruit hop up front with more of an average bitter orange-citrus finish. Crisp on the palate. I thought this was a solid IPA, my favorite beer from Ballast Point so far.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden amber color with a medium head the leaves decent lacing. Aromas of hops and citrus with more hops and a bit of pine. Flavors of hops grab you with citrus notes, a botter but pleasant aftertaste. Definitely a top selection for IPAs.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops and good amount of bitterness. Palate is a bit fizzy, but smooth finish that leaves bitterness on the tongue. Easy drinking IPA that would be great on a hot day.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a can into a snifter. Pours a cloudy orange/amber with a small white head. Aroma consists of pine, resin, peach, mango, and tangerine. Taste is much the same with a nice and balanced malt backbone that does not take away from the hop flavors. It has a very nice dry bitterness on the end. Medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Amazing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 355 ml in a tulip glass. Pour is clear orange with a frothy thick white head. Lots of floral and herbal hops in the nose. Tropical fruits dominate with passion fruit, lemon and grapefruit notes. Light bread notes. Taste is lots of fruit flavours with a medium but long lasting bitterness. Hints of bubblegum and very light malt sweetness. Pretty light body for an IPA! Well balanced! Great representation of an West Coast IPA, but not my favourite.

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.
