4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Another fantastic hoppy beer from the West Coast! Ballast Point never disappoints! This entry pours a dark orange color with a substantial head that laces around the glass all the way to the bottom. I get a hell of a lot of orange peel and other citrus in the nose. I also got some caramel malt, bread, yeast and a slight hint of cumin. The body was a little full for my liking, but drinkable enough. I got a lot of strong and spicy hop flavors, along with citrus, bread, yeast, grass and tree bark. There was a pronounced dryness toward the finish as well.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled @ Chandler Whole Foods. Bright orange rind brew with a milky ivory head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of tart grapefruit, lemongrass, pine, and tropical fruit. Flavor shows tons of citrus along with bright tangerine, moderate caramel, and toffee. Definitely more hop forward with a nice malt backbone. Really delicious!

On tap @ The Bruery Provisions Store.
Deep amber brew - aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and lots of caramel malt. Flavor of pine and citrus hops with a huge malt backbone that made this quite smooth and drinkable despite the 100 IBUs.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a deep amber with beige head. Aroma is full of resin and some grapefruit. Flavor has plenty of spice; sure makes the name appropriate! Delicious hoppiness full of resin and some citrus. What stands out the most, though, is the surprisingly thick, creamy mouthfeel. With plenty of spice and hop bite, this makes the finish stellar.

This poured a darker orange to red color with a beige head. Aroma was lots and lots of resinous piney hops, some toasted caramel malt too. Flavor was very dank, bitter and resinous hops, definately a good name for this beer, on top of a somewhat balanced caramel malt body. Another great one from ballast point.
