Big thanks to JoshCool for whipping this monster of a Double IPA out tonight on this cool summer evening. Ballast Point has not let me down yet, so I had high hopes for this one.

A: Cap pops with a slight hiss. Pours into the pint glass like a thick, sticky liquid yielding a very small white head that does not stick around for the festivities. Hazy, orange copper with minimal floaties.

S: Bitter grapefruit, bitter grass notes and bitter pine. Nice combo here of citrus and pine. If these two attributes were to sock it out in this beer though, the citrus would win. Just nice citrus notes overall followed by bitter pine.

T: Nice, just what I was looking for. Nice bitter grapefruit, mango and orange followed by grassy notes, pine bitterness, some residual sweetness, most likely due to the thickness and high residual sugars left over.

M/D: Thick. Very thick, yet surprisingly drinkable.

Overall, this is a great Double IPA. Another Southern California beer that makes me want to take a jetplane out west and live under a brewery. Very nice.

I bought this in Imperial Beach on the advice of a friend and brought it back to Colorado. The color was a clear orange hue with not much white head. Smell was fruity, hoppy juicy. Taste was like watermelon rind, cantaloupe, and green melon, a bitterness in the aftertaste. This was a good beer but I actually liked the Big Eye IPA more, which is also the case with Green Flash; I like the single IPA better than the double. This was also a little more expensive than all the other DIPA’s I brought back from San Diego at $7 a 22. Rock on.
