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

On tap poured into snifter.

A: 4.25 Pours dark golden with a hint of copper. Crystal clear, 1 finger of head the reduces fairly quickly and leaves very little lacing
S: 4.5 Strong citrus, grapefruit, hints of pine and malt.
T: 4.5 Bursting with grapefruit flavor, citrus stands back with the pine in the flavor. Lingering pine, just slightly dry finish.
M: 4.25 Smooth, carbed slightly too high for me taste for this style.
O: 4.25 Great beer, holds its own next to GFJ, but doesn't match it.

On draft at the SK IV Anniversary tapping thingee.

Aroma has big nodes of grapefruit hops and brown sugar malts. A very thick smell belying its relatively low (for a IIPA) ABV. I would have taken this to be somewhere around 12%, just by smelling it.

Flavor avoids any syrupy nodes, but the malt sweetness and ripe fruit nodes of the hops get a little cloying when combined. Lots of mango and pineapple, which are both really pleasant but the whole thing just doesn't come together all that well. Good, but not great.

Drank one of these immediately after drinking a Grapefruit Jungle, and the near-perfect, gloriously balanced fruit rush of the GFJ made this one seem a little off.
