Fra flaske på høstens siste Mi2, Cardinal des-17: lett uklar korngul med flott skum som varer. Søte juleappelsiner og mandariner, aprikos, rosa grapefrukt, ananas og melon. En lekker IIPA som ikke er for maltsøt eller "in your face". Meget velbalansert og farlilg lettdrikkelig, med andre ord. gunnar (9762) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2017

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 Dark orange, hazy. Aroma fruity, with lots of citrus. Taste very well balanced with more fruit, malt, sweetness and bitterness that dominates at the end. An exellent classical west coast ipa, towards the imperial style. Ballast Point can be trusted....

Tap at brewery. Pours clear gold. Aroma and flavor are big piney and citrus hops, pale and lightly toasted malts, very faint caramel, dry finish with lingering bitterness. Medium body. Nik925 (800) - USA - NOV 19, 2017
The aroma is off the charts amazing, everything else doesn't match up. Malt is tasty but thin. Bitterness hits then comes back around but you don't necessarily want it to. Aka lingering after taste goes on past he great hops HKdIPA (854) - HONG KONG - NOV 19, 2017
Bottle from Craftissimo at home after Clockenflap 2017. Clear golden yellow pour with dense white foam head. Aroma is tangerine, pineapple, dank hops. Crisp malt. Taste is dank pine and citrus hops with sweet cereal malt. Smooth palate. Sharp bitterness. Better than expected. Pretty good would probably get again. CacheManyHose (772) - HONG KONG - NOV 19, 2017
