A few tasters at Ballast Point / Home Brew Mart. From the left, Nitro Red Velvet (3 of 4), R&D Table Beer (2 of 4), and Watermelon Dorado DIPA (2 of 4). The Red Velvet has chocolate and beets and tastes of it - there is a fruity/starchy sweetness throughout, and quite a lot of chocolate in the nose. Great nitro body and quite nice to sip. The R&D table beer has some really faint belgian yeast character to it, but is otherwise quite unremarkable. Refreshing, but not a lot going on. Finally, Watermelon Dorado. I was warned I wouldn’t like this by a friend, and while I don’t particularly love it, it is ok. The watermelon is over the top, and there’s a ton of candy sweetness in the body, without nearly enough bitterness to balance.
I'm going to fuck the boats and you can't stop me
