This is possibly the best single IPA I have had. Color is light orange due to light malting, but the aromas are exceptionally complex. Ballast Sculpin seems more restrained, Stone IPA less intense, but those are the two I would compare. The hops intensity of Wipeout seems higher than its 78 IBU rating, almost like a lightly malted double IPA such as Pliny the Elder.

A - Golden orange and cloudy. Some carbonation

S - Scent is obvious. Its like a blanketing hug of hops. Very fruity and citrusy. They need to make candles that smell like this. Or maybe a perfume. I could smell this all night, but my mouth is watering so a taste is in order!

T - A somewhat sharper hop taste. Sweet and juicy fruityness balances it but not in the way malty-ness does. Really great fruity, citrus hops.

M - Some dry feeling at the end of the sip, but still mouth watering. Not too much carbonation, but far from a smooth drink. Lighter mouth feel. No harsh alcohol.

D - This far exceeded my expectations. Really great beer and you can bet I'll be buying more of this. Super wonderful and highly recommended!

This date on the keg was 8 days old when I brought it home, and it was marvelous. Forget the reviews before September 2012, this is a whole new batch with the hops available during this high tide season. Really bright aromatic hops, and then more hops after that. Pungent would be a good word to describe it. Sweet, some alcohol evident, but still a bubbly refreshing beer that you can have a few of in one session. Nice balance on the malts, it leaves the fresh hops taste something to bite your flavor buds with.

Serving type: on-tap

Pitcher at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Awesome beer! Amber burnt sienna color, excellent piny citrus cascade hop aroma been one of my favorites. Nice light caramel flavor with intense hop bitterness. Very crisp clean dry finish. Be carefull of the high alcohol and do not drink anything after that is lighter because this brew really fatigues the tastebuds
