BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States
ballastpoint.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
We’ve developed many IPA recipes in our R&D program, but right from the tank, our Manta Ray Double IPA was a winner. Aromas of fresh, citrusy tangerine, melon and light pine leap from the beer and linger over a smooth finish. Like its namesake, this brew can sneak up on you – a big beer without a bite.

Golden with a hint of haze, no carbonation and 5 fingers of foamy, yellow tinged head.

Smells of passion fruit, mangos, pine, caramel and garlic.

The taste follows the nose with a nice sweetness, solid bitterness and big balance of tropical fruit notes. Very refreshing.

Medium to light body with medium to low carbonation.

Got and drank in Chiang Mai. July 8th, 2017. Amazing balance, fruitiness and smoothness.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong citrus hops, piney hops, floral hops, pale malt, slight sweet malt, and slight earthiness. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is a strong bitterness. Tastes of strong citrus hops, piney hops, floral hops, pale malt, slight sweet malt, and slight earthiness. Good appearance, blend, too bittern, but otherwise tasty.

Very good DIPA. Pours a light gold with a frothy while head. Decent amount of lacing for this ABV. Aroma is a malty citrus, melon and pine. Starting to hit triple IPA aromas. Taste is similar to the aroma. Feel is soft for a DIPA. Overall, very good.
