22oz bottle $4.49. I think this must have been mispriced by the Whole Foods in Hillcrest but I wasn't complaining. Golden yellow-orange, good lacing. Aroma was esters, yeast, hops. Flavor was fruity, hoppy, Belgian yeast. Overall I wouldn't exactly call this a double IPA by any stretch of the imagination but it was hoppy. This is an odd style anyway but I would probably buy this again especially if it was $4.49.

On draft at Ballast Point in Little Italy.

The beer is golden hued with a fluffy white head. The aroma brings hops, Belgian yeast, fruity esters, alcohol. Hop forward, but the yeast and bready character have a significant presence. Medium bodied with some warming alcohol in the finish. I didn't enjoy this nearly as much as the American IPAs I had that night, but this is a solid beer nonetheless.
