Hands down the best brewery in Temecula and one of the best in a large radius! Everything they do is fantastic! The Ballast Point pedigree is apparent yet, like with a son and his father, eventually the apprentice becomes the master! This is a phenomenal IPA! A seamless blend of several hop varieties makes for a crisp, dry, piney, citrusy bomb that you would never suspect came from a year-old brewery! There's a reason these guys are blowing up and a reason they have an absurdly loyal following!

Serving type: on-tap

Feeling crazy, drinking straight from the bottle, so can't say what the "color" is...but have to report this offering represents the SoCa "West Coast" IPA scene very well! My bottle has 6.5% Abv (not 7+% as Ba states), not that it matters, as it makes an excellent session brew and one I'm currently enjoying...in-laws and all!

This is about as close to Sculpin as a beer can get. In fact, I'm pretty sure the brewer from Ironfire used to work at Ballast. Similar overall aroma and smell, with maybe slightly less aroma than really fresh sculpin and maybe a touch more bitterness. Overall a pretty nice IPA.
