Really, this beer is not good. Aftertaste is like fish, its namesake. Not crisp, not refreshing, not sessionable like a west coast IPA. I don't know how it even falls in this class. Its bad fruity with a bad aftertaste.

I tried this highly rated IPA based upon the high number of reviews. This was my first and last brew from Ballast Point. If I wanted grapefruit in my drink, I would make a paloma from one of my fine tequilas. I am delving into craft beers very late in my life and this beer only backs up my theory that craft beers are for hipsters who have yet to graduate from snowball syrup to fine distilled spirits. I did find one great craft beer with Founders Centennial IPA and it's bye-bye Heineken for me.
