4.55/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Alas, I have finally tracked this down in Central, OH.

Aroma: Explosive fruit juice aromatics that remind me of grapefruit, orange, and orange zest. Clean fermentation character. No malt aromas or really anything other than tropical fruit hoppy goodness.

Appearance: Clear amber pour with an off-white head that retains reasonably well. It appears still in my Duvel tulip.

Flavor: Wow! Like drinking hop juice. Earthy, firm bitterness up front followed by orange rind and grapefruit flavors. Balance is definitely bitter. Just a brush of sweetness that you might get by putting a couple grains of sugar on a slice of grapefruit. Finish is bone dry.

Mouthfeel: Just a hint of alcohol burn and a carbonic bite when combined with the hop bitterness borders on a touch of harshness.

Overall impression: A new favorite for sure. I still think Columbus IPA is #1 but this is in the ballpark. I'll be back for more of this.
