Thanks to Millerbuffoon for this one.

A - Pours a hazy copper orangte color with very active carbonation and a thin but reasonably creamy head.

S - Aroma is light resin but still with a thick texture in the nose - mango, papaya, grapefruit, and light caramel malt. Average to slightly above.

T - Bready caramel malt, grapefruit, pine resin, spicy, light floral, herbally weed, and alcohol presence. Leaves a lingering finish of citrus and pine bitterness with some caramel malt and alcohol effervesence.

M - A full bodied D-IPA, a little sticky on the lips, moderate lingering bitterness, moderately dry finish.

O - Being a lover of Double/Imperial IPA's this one is "decent", but I prefer Sculpin. Compared to many other big IPA's from the West Coast this one is sitting in the middle of the pack. For the price that was paid, I wouldn't procure another bottle but glad I was able to finally try this. I apologize for this review because I really love the beers from Ballast Point, they are very talented at their craft. As a lover of DIPA/Imperial IPA's, this one is "meh" IMO. Today is July 24th and this bottle is dated "Enjoy by 6/22/13", just an FYI if anyone is reading this review. This is a beer I would love to try right around bottling time.
