Ballast Point Grunion Pale Ale

Ballast Point Brewing Co, San Diego, CA


Our Grunion Pale Ale wasn’t born on a beach, but in a backyard.  Originating from an employee-only homebrew contest, this award-winning hoppy Pale Ale is named after the tiny local fish known for late night frolics on shore.  A pair of new hop varieties lend strong yet balanced summer melon aromas and herbal flavors, while a soft carmel malt sweetness holds it all together.

5.5% ABV

Clear dark gold in color with a nose of Citra hops and grapefruit.  A very light bodied beer.  Nothing up front and then the bitterness hits mid-palate.  Bitterness lingers into the aftertaste and beyond.  Not very balanced and does not taste like it smells.

Would we have this again?  No
