On tap at King's Table

Hazy honey/amber color. Lasting layer of retention and great lace.

Orange, grapefruit and grassy hops hold most of the aroma aside from some toasty grain. Yeah, mostly hops though. In another example of WTF, the taste is vegetal all while suggesting the taste of perfume fragrances if one could taste the fragrence and not the purfume itself. Soft body and carbonation.

Overall: Gorgeous lace. Terrible beer.

This beer is pretty boring. I give is credit for being refreshing in the summer, but just not a lot of character all the way around from nose, taste, mouth. Not to impressed. Ballast Point is a great Brewery so I am glad they don't bottle this one. I have been pouring it at the shop on tap for drinkers that come in looking for something generic like Blue Moon or Bud light. It seems to go good for them. For a heavy beer guy I would really stay away.

Had on tap at Ballast Point taproom in San Diego. This is my first IPL. Pours a golden yellow with a moderate white head. Smell is strange. The hops are there as well as a funky yeast. Taste is challenging for me. Some mild hop bitterness up front then a wash of diacetyl and buttery yeast flavors. Aftertaste is pretty dry but something sticks around longer than is welcome. Mouthfeel is medium. Not into it.
