Fully reviewed- July 30, 2013

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, honey amber/ light brown with nice lacing clinging to the glass.

Smell: On the nose immediately are hints of bready malts, grapefruit and assorted citrus, honey, and grass and pine resin hoppiness.

Taste: The taste flows from the aromas present with pine resin, grapefruit, orange citrus, sweet honey, and lemon noticeable. A little alcohol in the finish brings character and doesn't detract.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation with a nice finish over the palate. This style can sometimes be too dry; not a problem here!

Overall: A great IPA. Very drinkable. I'd order this beer again. A beer of the month club starter selection although I'm no stranger to this beer and other Ballast Point beers.
