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 that’s what going Ballz Deep is all about! Brewing specs: Original gravity: 19.0 Plato Terminal gravity: 3.25-3.75 Plato IBUs (approx.): 82

I was expecting a NW hop explosion from this, instead, I got a serious introduction to the malt backbone. Not sorry I bought this, but not quite what I expected. In any case, if you like malt, this one’s for you.

We very low aroma to this double IPA. Flavor is not as complex but the color and finish are clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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, there’s something there that lingers around and is slightly un-tasty. Somewhat hot wet mouthfeel. O.K...But I wouldn’t 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.

A 4 oz taster at Brewers by the Bay festival in Bellingham WA. A medium amber, medium hop, big malt. 3.3

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 39’s 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 (19409) - 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

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tumbler on 11.13.14. A: Citrusy. It smells a lot like Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s. 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 Dale’s, but it’s a bit rougher around the edges. Setting that aside, it’s 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.
