Didn’t feel like a local when I looked at board and asked for a Del Mar..I guess it is called DMJ. Funny. I am cool now. Good well balanced IPA. May have had palate fatigue from Stone one stop before. Nothing wrong with the brew. A good solid brew no lie. Well rounded typical SD brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy orange. Breakwater obviously knows what is up with the hops. There is solid, bold grapefruit in the aroma with pine. The body is medium with some caramelly malts. There is a lot of citrus bite in the flavor with a long, zesty finish. With this malt profile and density, it kind of reminds me of 2 hearted. I can’t believe this absolutely solid west coast IPA is only rated a 79 on this site.

tap at brewpub-6/16/11-pours lite orange with a small fizzy head. nose is tropical fruit basket here-kind of one dimeisional big citrus and catty notes going on long citric finish with some dry resin. pretty standard for the course but decent nonetheless. there are too many good IPA s in CA to even compete.

Really excellent Cali-IPA. Huge aroma of grapefruit and other citrus and a bright fresh flavor on top of the perfect hue and appearance. It really is a beautiful thing, and I see why it has taken home awards.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The beer pours a hazed golden amber color with a finger of white head and some mild lacing.
S: Initially, this beer smells great. Lots of grapefruit, tangerine, and pine. However, as I let the glass sit, there was a ton of butter aroma that came through. The hops were still there, but the butter was just too much to get past.
T: The bitterness is certainly there, but not quite the punch of hop flavor I was looking for. A decent pine flavor and some grass to go with the bread and malt. I experienced the same butter character on the palate, as well.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: This one really lead me on but ended up being a disappointment.
