I've had some good Ballast Points before, but this is a truly great one.
This one has a very pretty color with great clarity and a nice little head. The aroma is the best part - perfectly balanced without being a real challenge to the nose.
The taste is also well balanced (but still American, over the top). Loads of hops and malts but not syrupy. It is slightly harsh, probably a water characteristic.
The aftertaste is all hops, but nice. Not nasty. There is no boozy taste at all. This was a nice one to try in a growler from Saveon in Mentor.
Serving type: growler

Small head, disapated quickly. Bunch of white stuff from the rim to the bottom of the glass.
Faint smell of a pine needle when you snap it between your fingers.
Leaves a film on your lips like chapstick. That was cool.
Don't really want to write any more words. Just trying to make quota.

Clear gold color with a touch of orange. White head that faded rapidly into a thin collar and wisps. Aroma is faint citrus, grainy malt sweetness, slightly piney. Nice hop bitterness, medium-high carbonation, medium-low body. Taste is grainy malt, grassy/floral hop and grapefruit citrus, very faint spice.
Serving type: bottle

Appearance is a clear light copper color with a thin layer of head that dissipated almost immediately. The nose is certainly hoppy. The flavor is dominated by the hop profile except for a touch of citrus that pokes through the hops. This is certainly a fine offering, but it pales in comparison to Sculpin.
