Just picked it up, but Bottled on Oct 25... Could explain why the nose was faint-def expected more hop aroma! The hop bitterness literally explodes and then dances on the tongue! Taste is hoppy, but somewhat muddled. Again, expected more of the San Diego grapefruit, but a month out, so it may have faded too. Some warm alcohol on the nose and in the flavor, but def a well-hidden 10%!
Would love to try this fresh, based on the high ratings an ecstatic reviews.

Exceptional fruity tones without the heat. Medium body feel and nice malt sweetness.
