In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Ballast Brewery. It is their Dorado Double IPA. If you read my earlier beer blog post on their Electric Ray IPL that they teamed up with Sierra Nevada, you know the history of this West Coast Craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this California craft brewery. Let us get into this double IPA.
It has a clear copper color with a constant white head. The smell has a heavy citrus notes. The taste has a smooth citrus notes with a dry bitter aftertaste. It is a nice sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.ballastpoint.com):
A huge, hoppy brew that will test your sea legs.
Our Dorado Double IPA immediately hooks you with massive hops that never stop. Mash hopping, kettle hopping and dry hopping makes this beer a serious hop lover’s prize catch. It’s an amazingly drinkable, award-winning beer that’s as beautifully balanced as it is big.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, I am so happy to see this craft brewery in the Michigan beer market. I believe that this craft brewery can teach some other craft breweries somethings. I like it but I am not going out of my way to find this beer. I will pick it up when I see it. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
