smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Served cold from tap at brewery. This is the best Ballast Point brew, in my opinion. Almost 10% ABV, big hop aroma, citrus and floral notes. Flavor is well balanced, not nearly as bitter as expected, but great taste. Almost no presence of the alcohol, even though its an Imperial. Feels great on the palate, smooth, and a fine hop finish.

thirdeye11 (6158) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2009
( 22oz bottle thanks to ballewblake) Pours a clear yellow with low oily bubbles. Nose of pine, sweet grapefruit esters/oils. Taste folllows and is pretty bitter for me with some wood thrown in. Body is oily and light. Well balanced but not enjoyable for me.

Macegan75 (841) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Pours a beautiful clear golden straw color. The nose is not as strong with hops as I thought but still prominent. I taste a lot of tropical fruit like mango and papaya. The malt is present in the middle and bittering hops finish nicely. What a great clear finish.

emacgee (4671) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Pours a brilliant translucent gold with a two finger cascading white head. Aroma is bursting with fruit and citrus character. Mango, sweet citrus juice, tropical, tad spicy, some honey. Flavor is less delicate than the aroma. Spicy bitterness, pink grapefruit, a bit of honey. Spicy palate with a citrus rind bitterness. Awesome

nickd717 (4597) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Tap at Toronado 22nd Anniversary. Clear golden-amber color with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet malt and piney/resinous hops. Flavor is lots of sweet caramel malt, toffee, honey, and heavy-hitting pine/citrus hops. Fairly syrupy and oily palate with lingering hop bitterness. Good stuff.

Drake (13488) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2009
22 ounce bottle courtesy of CrellMoset. Thanks! Pours a hazy peach color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Big resiny citrus notes with a good toffee-like maltiness. Taste is resiny hop notes with citrus, pineapple and a note of toffee. Full bodied. Straightforward double IPA but very good.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 16, 2009
650 mL. Pours a clear apple juice-colored amber with a one-finger, egg-shell head. Awesome, sticky lacing. Aroma is exquisite- pretty much the exact aroma in my opinion to Bells Hopslam: tons of orange blossom and clover honey, big grapefuit hops, fresh citric hops. Taste is caramel, grapefruit hops, spices, honey, and some nutty bitterness. Pretty refreshing actually. As this warms the near 10% comes into play with an extra spicy kick. Very close to Hopslam but lacks the palate.

Skeets (25) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle from Bev Mo (not refrigerated). Pale clear golden color..No head. Nice full piney hop aroma. Flavor is well balanced, pine, some citrus, some light malt. Not too bitter. Hides higher ABV welll. Might not have been fresh, but I still enjoyed this beer.
