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!

My neighbor knows I dig IPA's so he was kind enough to return a favor by snaggin' me a bottle of this in return - thanks chris! Poured into a Brouwerij 't Ij branded tulip.

A: Pours a slightly hazed straw-like hue with a fat white head that gives way to massive amounts of lacing that coat my glass from start to finish.

S: Grapefruit rind, piney, chlorophyllic grassiness, cracker malt, finishing with a slight hint of distinct California ale yeast - nice balance going on here.

T: On point with the nose but with greater amounts of hoppy goodness - not unlike chewing on grapefruit rinds of the white grapefruit variety (not that fake pink shit), pine sap, fresh cut grass that recedes only slightly to reveal a modest amount of malt - just enough to lend a slight balance to the hoppy goodness of this ale. Damn fine West coast stylie here!

M: On the mellow end of a medium bodied brew, perfect carbonation for the style, with a great resinous finish from all that lupulus goodness.

Great West Coast IPA from a brewery I had no prior knowledge of. Thanks to my good neighbor here in OB, I was fortunate enough to try this fine ale. Damn good representation of what we're doing here in San Diego - again, fu*k the malt - bring on the hop!
