2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.
As ever, San Diego’s Ballast Point looked to the sea for the inspiration behind Electric Ray. A play on the fish’s scientific name—Torpedo californica—this beer pays homage to our mutual home state, as well as to our Hop Torpedo, the source of much of the big flavor in this high voltage, hop-forward Imperial Pale Lager.
Ballast Point brought their homebrewing dreams to the big leagues and started brewing professionally, but they never forgot their roots. They still run a successful homebrewing supply shop in San Diego. A love for hops and the ocean inspire incredible brewed and distilled offerings, and their one-of-a-kind labels boast some beautiful, and sometimes gnarly-lookin’, fish.
Wow really outstanding beer! Nice fluffy ead plenty of lace, clear amber color. Aroma is mainly a resiny hop and malt. Flavors like aroma very well-balanced between bitter sweet and tang. Excellent palate. Super easy drinking beer with a little booziness in the finish.

Orange golden, good clarity. Nose is melon, tropical fruit, green tea. Flavor is mango, mild grapefruit, honey, biscuity malt, grass, pungent tropical fruit finish. Hop forward but not overly bitter. Could be a shade drier mid palate but I’m nitpicking. Really nice.
