look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Huge ~4 finger pour in a large ale glass from a turbulent pour. Surprisingly dark coppery pour, settling to a golden straw color with orange highlights. Head is bright white and fluffy, which great retention and nice sticky lacing. Transparent and slightly bubbly.

Expected single IPA aroma, reminiscent of Mosaic, although apparently that's the Centennial and Magnum combo (I'm not very familiar with Magnum hops). Citrus and tropical fruit in equal measure, with some sweet dankness as well, floating on a biscuity maltiness. Slightly floral, with some honey. No significant grapefruit aroma.

Flavor dutifully follows the nose, with a balance of floral, tropical, citrus, dank, and pine hops that blends together in a way that makes it difficult to pick out the dominant flavors. Grapefruit peel is mostly present on the back-end, with a dry citrus finish, typical of older IPA hop profiles. Definitely a super bitter brew, impressively so (think Ruination), although mostly present on the back-end; the front and mid palate hoppiness is more of the hop juice variety.

Grapefruit acidity definitely builds up as you drink it, giving it a nice balance to the fruity hops.

Lively with a nice sting; juicy middle, with a semi-dry finish that lingers forever. A little sticky residue. Fairly drinkable.

This is a solid DIPA; I imagine this is how Enjoy By would be if they went for massive bitterness and astringency instead of fruity flavors. Worth trying, but I don't think I'm going to revisit it any time soon.
