3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy yellow with off white head and lacing.
Nice smack from hops up front, crisp and refreshing.
Lingering bitterness on the finish.
Not really getting the fruits as described by the brewer but still a pleasant beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong citrus, grapefruit aroma. No malt on the nose. The appearance is slightly hazy with a light gold color. The flavor is super hoppy with a lingering bitterness on the finish. The malt is very light on flavor. The mouthfeel is medium -light and the beer coats the mouth on the finish. The carbonation is medium. Overall it's really hoppy for an IPA, tastes like a double IPA. I enjoyed drinking it and will order it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light copper with not much of a head, but a thin lacing that lasts quite q while. Initial smell was of orange, but after it sat a bit got whiffs of citrus, grapefruit and light hop smell. Taste is citrus upfront, pretty strong sweet malt backbone, grapefruit and pine resin taste and feel at the end.
Pretty solid IPA. Will be getting again. One of the best ones I have found in stores in Utah.

Drack denna öl för kall första gången och var inte alls imponerad. Nu drack jag den något varmare och fick en smakupplevelse i gengäld. Härlig doft, kompakta balanserade smaker och en påtaglig beska som sitter kvar länge. Mkt bra öl kort sagt.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a beautiful gold with a thick white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, oranges, HOPS!!! Hops and more hops on the palat, but somehow not overpowering; very easy to drink. Nice dry bitter finish. This is without a doubt one of the best balanced super-hoppy IPAs I have ever had the pleasure to try; glad I bought more than one bomber!

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.

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.
