On tap at Linda Vista – 8oz pour served in a Tulip style glass
A: Hazy caramel orange body in the glass. Thick buildup of foamy bone white suds rests on top for a few prolonged moments. Nice intermittent tracks of lace and sticky dots cling to the glass after every sip.
S: Very floral aromatics with a spray of citrus fruits and some mild dank herbs. Smells juicy with hops and some sugary pale malts. Getting a nice tropical element to the nose like a mango pineapple combo. Has a very enjoyable citrus spiced tropic thing going on.
T: Flavors come together quite nicely with juicy mangoes, citrus zest, and florals. Not particularly lemony but the beer is fruity and lightly exotic with just enough sugary malt sweetness binding everything together. Has a very nice controlled bitterness across the palate and good drying lift with a resinous finish. I pick up on some of the alcohol in the background but this is otherwise nicely balanced.
M: Moderate to lighter fill with a nice creamy consistency from the carbonation. Lightly resinous pucker from a moderate amount of bitterness and a good drying affect towards the finish. Lingers on the palate in the end.
D: A very nice and new hoppy offering from Ballast Point. It is light and refreshing with great balance between the fruity tropical hops, bitters, and malt sugar levels. Would definitely have more of this one.
