Pours a hazy orangey red color with a small off white head.
Big citrusy nose, lots of hops with a touch of alcohol and malt.
Again, lots of grapefruity hops on the palate with a long lingering bitterness, but it's very pleasent. A touch of tropical fruit along the way, but not as much as I remember in years past. Alcohol is very well hidden.
Nice full body with creamy carbonation.
Very high drinkability given the ABV. If I tasted this blind I would peg it as a DIPA. Tons of hops and they are tasty. A total palate destroyer, but in a good way.

Served on tap in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska.
Great beer, who's 2013 edition is far better than some of the recent Enjoy bys. In a beer this strong, you sometimes worry that the alcohol content will take over the taste profile. That is definitely not the case here.
Serving type: on-tap
