Very hoppy pale ale. Borders basic one dimensional IPA. Not bad thin head. Overall decent beer.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent golden orange colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild caramel and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Taster. Pale orange gold, white head. Fresh hop and dank aroma. Mild pine resin and sweet toffee, fresh clean finish. Delicious! rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2015
Draught at Ballast Point Linda Vista Road, San Diego. Slightly hazy golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Hoppy pine flavor, citrus, grapes, tangerines and grapes. Hoppy pine flavor, citrus, oranges, grapes, some pine apples. A tad thin but still refreshing. blipp (9374) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Fruity cascade hop profile, mild/moderate bitterness, mild malty sweetness, and some light spicy hoppy notes as well. Pretty good, but at any given time BP will have 3-4 IPAs on that are better than this.

Draught at Lulu’s, 7/10/15dwyerpg (6217) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Glassy, pale gold appearance with a small, foamy white head that shows moderate retention.
Soft, clean nose shows fuzzy apricot and tangerine notes, fresh, leafy-green floral hop notes and a smattering of pale malt sugars, light touches of fruitiness from the yeast and no alcohol or flaw.
It’s funny how similar all of the (very few) wet hopped beers I’ve tried taste. They all have low bitterness, which is nice, with a lightly grainy, almost plant-like (white tea like, perhaps?) flavor. Some continuous, soft orange/tangerine-like flavors are highly pleasant and no resin is noted, the simcoe and centennial being only present in dry-hop form. Watery, drinkable texture with medium carbonation. High attenuation and quite dry. Great session beer. Ballast Point is really doing great things (minus Sculpin having gone down hill, IMHO).
This has a medium hop aroma and a medium hop body. Very easy to drink a lot of. a good way to start the evening BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 10, 2015
On tap at the source. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy grassy. Flavor follows. Earthy. Nice beer.

On tap at Ballast Point brewery. Pours a brilliant bright orange with firm small white head. Nose is very light tropical fruit, mango and a grassy note. Taste is relatively bland. Maybe some mango, pine and a little grapefruit.

With it’s super fresh aromatics and hop presence, it sure blurs the line between ipa (especially the new trend towrds sessio ipas) and pale ale. I bet the ibus are lower than a lot of ipas, though the hops are used at the right time and are showcased well. Great combo of vibrant hop varieties. Citrusy, tropical and spicy, with very light pine and caramel. Light bodied and refreshingly delicious. I could drink a lot of this. aroma and flavor would be 8.5 if i could, so overall gets a 9 to make up for that :)"
