orange and clear, head and lace ok, nothing special to look at.

Aroma has some funk on top of plenty of fruity hops, a little pine and some resin. The flavor has far more powerful hop taste, with searingly resinous hoppiness as the dominant form, with touches of funk and less fruit than expected from the aroma. There might be just enough malt to claim it's there but this isn't one of those "balanced" DIPAs (if there is such a thing).

Body is medium with pretty good carbonation and a bitter, resinous finish.

Overall Ballast Point's hoppy beers all seem to have a particular thread in common, but that's not a bad thing since they're all delicious.
