Damico (3145) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2010
The aroma is awesome, sweet hops with fruit and citrus notes. The orange cloudy color has a decent creamy head. The flavors of citrus, hops, and crisp ale blend together smoothly on the palate.

madvike (3224) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2010
Bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Smells of grassy, herbal hops, but with a nice malt backbone. Well-balanced and fruity sweet--not much hop profile in the taste, surprisingly, but finishes dry with grassy hops and a bit of nuttiness. Smooth and syrupy in the mouth.

Thanks to LagunitasFan!

Appearance: Pours a semi clear amber gold with a nice beige head.

Aroma: Grapefruit, perfume, flowers. Probably more citrus notes than anything.

Taste: Big pine bitterness, spicy malt and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, modestly carbonated and sticky.

Overall: Very solid, and distinct from the other IPA and IIPAs Ballast Point makes.

What a lovely bright DIPA!!! Crisp and clean with a huge citrus bouquet pouring out of the glass. Fuzzy orange/yellow color with a frothy head. Delicious beer here! Enjoy.

brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
A: A clear pale gold/yellow color with a nice fluffy head and amazing lacing. S: Very piney, slight citrus presence, and essentially zero malt. T: A lot more citrus on the tongue, grapefruit and lemon peel. A nice piney finish and a bitterness that sticks around and leaves you wanting more. M: Slick mouthfeel, medium bodied. D: An amazingly drinkable DIPA. Great offering by Ballast Point.

MrBunn (2770) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2010
On tap at Ballast Point. Pours a nice orange with aromas of sweet honey and a little bit of floral and resiny hops. Flavor is pretty sweet (the guy pouring said that when extremely fresh the hops are much more assertive and I would have loved to try it then.) As is, its got enough hops in it to keep it from being cloying.
