Had two bottles of this one, different tasting ones at that. Aroma is sticky resiny blood grapefruit. Taste is almost exclusively that too, i´m drinking it wishing it had more piney tones!
Bottle from SB.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is on the lower end in both the malt and hops, but pleasantly sweet. The taste experience is nice and smooth - almost a little like honey and the hops lightly tap dances around on your tongue before exiting, leaving you with a mature, dry, bitterness. Excellent stuff, and the color is lovely also!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home from rlgk, thank You very much! Pours deep amber color, white head. Aroma is very fruity - mango, papaya, orange, floral hops. Taste is great, nicely sweet, but bitter at the same time, papaya, mango, orange peel, tangerines and floral hops. Nice bittersweet, very fruity finish. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice clear amber, thin foam. Fruity and hoppy aroma, attractive. Taste has all these hops that nose was warning about - but they feel nicely balanced with the body and are not overwhelming at all. Fruity and surprisingly light for a double IPA of this strength. Good beer, great job with balancing - but maybe not too exciting.
