A - Nice clear golden body. White foam head - 1-1.5inch in height with aggressive poor.

S - Fantastic hop scent with citrus and pine notes.

T - Very good IPA - All the right notes of hops, citrus, and pine with a sweet complex finish. So good that I may make a brewery trip part of my California vacation this year.

O - Great Session IPA. Certainly needs to be part of the summer IPA rotation. Excited to try some of the other offerings from Ballast Point. Nicely Done!

An absolutely amazing India Pale Ale. This is a west coast IPA at its best!! The clarity of the beer is great. A wonderful balance of bitterness and dankness!! As huge fan of IPA's this along with Bear Republic's Racer 5 are my go-to's on any given day!! Keep up the great brew's Ballast!!
