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!

Good solid IPA. A little malty for my taste.

Poured into a flute glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates to a ring around the glass leaving slight lacing. Aroma of citrus and piney hops, grapefruit, faint biscuit malt. Flavor is very hop forward; grassy, herbal and citrus hops. Light biscuit malt body that supports the hops surprisingly well. Finish is somewhat dry with a long, lingering herbal hop finish. Medium bodied with hints of creaminess. I usually don't like light malt body in my IPAs, but 51/50, which is very up front about the malt taking the back seat, seems to be designed around this and I really enjoyed this IPA. A very nice balance of hops that stand on their own. It's a sign of a good brewery when they can make you enjoy a style that you are normally not excited about. I'll check out their other ales.
