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!
