Finally! A Ballast Point product that has LIVED UP to the hype.
EPITOME of what it means to be a west coast IPA, done better than most any other WC IPA I have tried.

Might have had a bottle slightly past its prime, smell and look were great but taste was quite bitter and not in a crisp hoppy way. I will try it again and revise this if necessary.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter, great bitterness, a bit boozy, but great as expected as a West Coast double.

Hoppy, floral and a bit boozy. It's delicious but No Sculpin.

Appearance: Hazy gold, huge head.

Smell: Citrus, berries--reminds me of strawberries?

Taste: Solid malt body, then sweet fruitiness. Citrus mixed with pineapple, a little bit of booziness underneath.

Overall: I'm really impressed with this DIPA from Ballast Point. Hits all the marks--some sweetness, good hop flavor, some booziness. Glad to have another A plus DIPA option to choose from!
