Clear golden color with a nice one finger white head. There are lots of bubbles in this one.
I noticed the aroma as soon as I opened the bottle. Fantastic hop aromas, pine mostly and also detected some caramel notes.
On the first taste I get a subtle hop bitterness which leads the way for the pine. Dark toast and a slight maltiness round out the flavor profile.
This beer is very crisp and clean and you. An feel that on the palate. This sensation gives way to a resinous hop bitterness and a pleasant lingering aftertaste of roast.
Wow! Good stuff! Glad Ballast Point made it to OH. No bottle date but I'm pretty sure it will always be fresh bc I can't see it sitting on shelves for long.
