Tap. Clear rusty bright orange. Lots of nice citrus, melon, soft vanilla notes, and slight fruity juiciness. Flavor is very similar, juicy citrus, balanced, but very hop forward and lacking gross malt heaviness. Slick light to medium body. Lovely

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Capital ale house Innsbruck just outside Richmond, VA
pours bright orange with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is big grapefruit like a clean old skool double ipa with faint honeysuckle alcohol and pine. Flavors are big line grapefruit bomb all the way! Huge bitterness on tbe finish just how I like it! Perfect! Long resinous grapefruit finish. Slight alcohol burn but blends well witb the onslaught of pine and grapefruit. This is my kind of IIPA but not I can see why some don’t like it.

Amazed I had managed to miss this one until now. Growler fill from the new beer shop by my house! Clear pale orange, good head. Aroma initially of beautiful pure pink grapefruit. As it warms, picks up some gummy malts and a hint of pine hops. Flavor is a masterful balance between gummy malts and grapefruit and pine hops. Yummy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small, white head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is grapefruit, misc. citrus, fresh hops. The flavor follows suit: citrusy DIPA with real hop intensity, nearly a note of freshly ground pepper. A touch of honey sweetness in the back. Lingering hop bitterness. Alcohol is very well-masked.

Heavy body, thick creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Nice , has some real good moments. Aroma best part. Flavor tad more one dimensional good overall,
