Poured from a bomber. Orange and mostly clear pour. Thin white head. Fruity aroma. Amazing taste as good as any IPA I have had. Orange pine grapefruit hoppy floral - all my favorite attributes in this one. On my short list top 5-10 I have had

Draft at railroad. Pours clear copper with minimal head. Aroma is a true pine bomb. Taste is bitter and well balanced. Killer Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle at home shared with my dad. Pour is hazy peach in appearance with a frothy white head that is sticking around for quite a while. Spicy hops, earthy, grapefruit, light vanilla, caramel, and light lemon in the aroma. Taste is earthy, dirty, caramel, orange, chewy toffee, grass, and pine with that unmistakable Ballast Point spicy hoppiness. Sticky/chewy mouthfeel with high carbonation. Great DIPA, with those typical spicy/earthy Ballast Point hops and great caramel body. Well-done. mwbrady12 (469) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Incredible aroma and attractive amber pour with an awkwardly complex taste and decent mouthfeel.

Bright copper orange color in the glass with a medum head. It has an aroma of pine and citrus. There is also some hops that come through. Taste is great. Big bitter bite but has so much flavor it is well balanced. There is grapefruit and a earthiness to it. What I like the most is the creaminess it has. Great finish.

bright orange color. Big pine and grapefruit nose. Medium mouthfeel. Dank and bright hop flavors from beginning to end. It isn’t Pliny, but this is a great double IPA Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2012
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has some candy and resin hops, with some biscuit malt thrown in. The flavor is very similar. I get some bitter pine and resin from the hop notes, as well as some brown sugar and orange citrus notes. There is a good amount of malty sweetness, which is mixed with some strong hop flavor and a medium amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. larryLSB (533) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - AUG 12, 2012

Almost clear golden decent head, fairly piney and citrusy aroma, grapefruit, flavors are similar with just a bit more malt than the aroma would dictate, leaves a bit of an astringent finish... fullish bodied...
