Ballast Point Dorado
Ballast Point Dorado is an American Double/Imperial IPA. 10% ABV. Bottled 1/28/15, opened 2/27/15.
I really like the aroma of this, big sweet caramel, some sweet tropical fruits and a nice punch of pine as well. The taste starts a little bit sweet and fruity, getting some grapefruit, orange peel, and a little bit of bread crust. This is followed by super intense pine resin and a good bit of alcohol heat, both linger long into the aftertaste.
Not exactly my cup of tea when it comes to a DIPA, but that doesn’t stop me from seeing the quality in this bottle. Grab some of this if you’re a big fan of a big west coast IPA.
