On Cask @ brewery. Holy christ was this a booze bomb. Big, sticky, boozy hop bomb, and I loved it. Can’t wait to get my hands on some Ballast Point spirits.

1st rating of this extra special cask from the scripps ranch location. Damn, I was debating whether or not to make the drive for this, and damn, I’m glad I decided to make the drive. Poured orange with a very nice stable tan 2 finger head. Nose is sweet and hoppy and smooth. Taste is sweet with resin, and hoppy, balanced malts and a nice smooth rum. Damn good. Damn Damn Good. Excellent, to see a collaboration between both side of BP, looking forward to trying the rum and having this beer again. I had a pint of this, and it went down super smooth, if i didn’t have to drive i could have pounded these all day.
