The first time I had this I defintely didn't see the hype, but this has grown on me. The aroma previews the taste with a big dankess of grapefruit. The taste is even better as more tropical fruits come through with the grapefruit with a solid amount of bitterness. No complaints here and I fully intend on getting much more of this. (95/100)
