3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great straw colored IPA with thin and quickly dissipating head.
Nose and flavor do not disappoint with great hoppy bite in some of the more floral hop varieties.
Malts still come through cleanly, making this a great drinkable beer, but perhaps lacks some of the depth or interest of other iPAs. Nonetheless, Ballast Point has a great brew here with durability through the seasons, with enough character for fall and a clean and effervescent mouthfeel to deliver through the summer. Cheers!

Wonderful aroma. An explotion of citrus fruits. Lemon, mango, peach and grapefruit. Also some pine. Taste is light sweetness and pretty heavy bitterness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just over three months old bottle, which is unfortunately the best we could ever hope for over here. Pours a deep gold with slight chill hazing and off-white head. Interesting bouquet with hot rubber, a bit like a vigorously used eraser, a dank quality like a moist dugout, some pine needles and tropical fruits, mostly mango. The palate is medium bodied with good freshness, pleasant, off-dry and round flavour with a very long bitterness which stays at a pleasant level throughout. Very nice.

Really nice and juicy ipa. Aroma of pine, sweet grape, orange, tangerine, peach and some floral notes. Tastewise it is bitter and refreshing with notes of pine, grape, unripe mango and some sweeter fruit. Long aftertaste.

Clear pale orange colour, medium Carbonation, tight fluffy white head. Aroma has Mango, citrus, apricot jam, most of tropical fruit you can get. Soft mouth feel. Mild bitterness but the sweetness is balanced. Taste follows nose. Could session this quite happily. Superb!

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.
