look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Aroma: Grapefruit, clean soap, lemon zest

Appearance: Gold (much more so then Enjoy By) with a perfect, creamy, 2 inches of white head, great lacing and retention.

Taste: As has been said by others, bitter grapefruit. Its layered though and as you go, sip by sip, it develops (kind of reminds me of how HT does this). More pine and spice and herbal/earthy notes come out. Stays pretty damn bitter the whole time and Ive crossed all lupulin thresholds years ago ;-)

Mouthfeel: Full bodied for an IPA, resiny. Awesome.

Overall: An amazing IPA from brewers who just get it.

Serving type: bottle

On tap at Capone's.

Clear, golden pour, with a thin white head that retained as a ringlet; minimal lacing. Nice aroma, obvious grapefruit, crisp leafy hops, promises of a pale biscuity malt profile. Blast of fresh grapefruit in the taste, pith, peel, and pulp, good balance of sweet and bitter, herbal/leafy hops, solid biscuity malts. No complaints here. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel with a dry finish, moderate to low carbonation. Pretty good overall. I'd imagine its charms wouldn't last very long in a bottle, so drink it fresh.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/23/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit peel, orange zest, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Incredible aromas with huge citrus/floral hop and citrus peel aromas, with light-moderate malt balance; and great strength. Taste of big grapefruit peel, tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit peel, tangerine, pineapple, orange/lemon zest, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of bright citrus/floral hops with grapefruit peel, and light malt balance; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome DIPA. All around great complexity of citrus/floral hop and grapefruit peel flavors, with light-moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
