Bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange just after release. Color is yellowish gold with nice thick white head. Aroma is all citrus hops with strong grapefruit. Taste follows with strong citrus notes. High alcohol is nicely hidden by the malt and hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy. The extreme citrus notes of this beer are really nice. Really good DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop thanks to a tip from thatoneguymike. Poured into a tapered rocks glass. Slight haze, orangey amber color with off-white head that held for 30 seconds. Collar holds for a few minutes. Aroma is extremely grapefruit forward, with what I assume is citra/simcoe/cascade. Some spice aromas, a decent amount of tropical type sweetness as well. Taste is also extremely grapefruit forward throughout. Some hop bite in the middle, the spice comes at the end. Grapefruit tart tang holds until the mid-palate. Reminds me of when I was young and used to raid my neighbors’ grapefruit trees and split on open to eat. Enjoyable mouthfeel with high carbonation and filled bodied for an IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden, cloudy amber with an off white head. Aroma is very fruity with peach, a little lemon. Exotic - reminds me a little of mojito. Taste is pretty bitter up front. Slight pine or grass, but most of all this massive fruityness. Grape/lime, peach, pineapple, followed by a late bitter end. Quite a mouthful, but still pretty fresh for it’s high ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy golden amber with off white head. Aroma is fresh hop forward. Also some peach, pineapple, lime, citrus and some pine. Quite tropical. I also get some more bready notes behind. You can smell that this is a big fat DIPA with some balls. Taste is nice fresh hop forward with refreshing citrus notes, tropical fruits, pine, quity ’crispy’, almost minty and with some bready notes behind. Alcohol is there but not overpowering in any way. Very good!
