Beer #66 Ballast Point Dorado Double IPA

Ballast Point Dorado Double IPA

Name: Dorado Double IPA

Style:   Double IPA

Brewery: Ballast Point Brewing Company website

Country: USA

Region:  San Diego, California

ABV: 9.1%

How served: 650ml (22oz) capped bottle poured into a Duvel glass.     

My Overall Opinion: Amazing.

I paired this beer with: Homemade vegetable soup, tomato based with shrimp, scallops & tilapia.   

Tasted on:  Monday January 18, 2010.

Note:  This is my second different beer from Ballast Point Brewing, the other being Sculpin IPA.  Both were simply amazing.  I could drink this beer anytime, anywhere & pair it with most meals.  This bottle is  a few months old, so it might have lost some of its “hop” bite, which might have made it more balanced.   If you haven’t tried this beer yet & it’s available where you live, BUY IT & enjoy.
