This IPA is brewed out of San Diego CA at the Ballast Point Brewery. It has a 7% ABV, and is available year-round.
I found this beer to pour out a nice light orange color. It produced a decent amount of head, that laced nicely on the glass, and had good retention. The aroma of this IPA produced some fantastic grapefruit, and orange notes. When tasting this beer I found it to be very crisp while carrying a fantastic balance between the fruity front, and the mild hop bitterness in the finish.
To date this is the best Grapefruit IPA that I have enjoyed. It doesn’t lack anywhere, and is very well balanced. I would recommend it, if it is available near you.
