COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We went a little overboard on this one! A mash tun packed mostly with pale ale malt and several different varieties of crystal malt provide a firm, slightly sweet malt flavor while copious amounts of resiny Yakima Valley hops go berserk on bitterness, flavor and aroma. Yes, this IPA is massive, but thats what going Ballz Deep is all about! Brewing specs: Original gravity: 19.0 Plato Terminal gravity: 3.25-3.75 Plato IBUs (approx.): 82

Dogbrick (12343) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Slightly hazed orange-amber pour with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of biscuit malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, bready malt and dried fruits. The finish is caramel malt up front with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Tap at brewery. Crisp filtered dark copper color, minimal head. I definitely get the "malt backbone", orange, banana, lime, and some sweet sugary hops. Interesting bitterness, but not the hop kind, theres something there that lingers around and is slightly un-tasty. Somewhat hot wet mouthfeel. O.K...But I wouldnt go as far as calling it an Imperial though.

A well made, nicely balanced beer. Because of the balance, the hopheads rate it far lower than it should be, but I pay no attention to them anyhow.

No real nose on this one, but tastes great. This is an IpA? Tastes more like a hoppy Amber. Nice lingering sweetness to it.

7 Seas Ballz Deep Double IPA 8.4% On tap at Garage 39s 2nd Anniversary Event. An orange gold pour with a thick beige head. The nose is big juicy citrus.mefium bodied with a raspy mouthfeel. The taste is sweet malts, fruity citrus, mint & pine. Tasty easy drinking stuff.

Oakes (16469) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Light bronze, touch of haze. Thin head. Light rambutan aromas and a subtle toasty crystal chewiness. Quite sweet, smooth but very caramel, and a dash of toffee.

Poolieo (46) - Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2015
A hoppy flavor with sort of a sea salt after taste. Strong aroma but lite on mouth feel. Beware 8.4% alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WABeerFiend (400) - - JAN 20, 2015
Poured from a 16 oz can into a tumbler on 11.13.14. A: Citrusy. It smells a lot like Oskar Blues Deviant Dales. Tropical fruit with a big brown sugar malt base. A: 2 finger head. See through red/amber body. T: Pineapple and brown sugar dominate. Pine is subtle and on the back end. O: It really does smell and taste a lot like Deviant Dales, but its a bit rougher around the edges. Setting that aside, its not in the West Coast style because it has a big malt presence. This does have a nice bittersweet piney sting on the back end.

16 Oz can pour. Pours a copper color. Bitter hops and caramel malt flavors, and a little boozy. Decent flavor here. You can tell its strong by the taste. Overall a pretty good IIPA. Will drink again.

pours a clear dark amber with a thin white head, and good lacing. smell is of caramel, hops, and a slight pine. taste is about the same as the small with some malt.
