Putting my IPA Rubric to the Test: Ballast Point Dorado (video)


Ballast Point Dorado Double IPA 10% ABV

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect IPA and honestly I think I already found my perfect IPA, Avery Maharaja. So by that Avery Maharaja rubric I measure all other IPAs I find because that beer gives me the perfect balance of sweet, hops and flavor. Enters Ballast Point Dorado Double IPA, does it measure up to the my A+ beer? Does it light that fire under my britches? Well watch the video and find out.

Don’t forget to leave comments below and follow us on both Youtube and Facebook. Cheers!

About Irving

I'm just a guy who has a passion for good beer. Over the past few years I've been making it a point to introduce my friends to good quality beer and now, all of you. There's a world beyond cold activated cans, clydesdales, green bottles and Mexican clear bottled beer, you just need to tap that keg. Stay thirsty but stay different.


  1. Haha, at the end after your last sip it looks like you just drank sour wine. Anyway, I tasted this beer tonight (thank you sir). I’m a hop head but have always said too much hop is too much. I couldn’t find the IBU of this brew when I quickly looked on the net but like its ABV I imagine its high. I give this brew a 5 simply b/c of the hard bitter finish that you so well demonstrated at the end of your vid. The alcohol comes thru more than any other taste. I loved the smell and pour was regal. Cheers!
