This beer was served from the tap at One-Eyed Betty’s in Ferndale, MI. It arrived in a generic tulip, glowing the bright, straw colored hue of gold bullion. It held a one finger head of tan bubbles, showing decent retention. No haze or sediment was noted, and carbonation appeared light. The aroma was palpably sticky and heavy with grapefruit hops, sweet honeys, and pineapple sugars. To match was chalky rice graininess, stark plastic and chemically phenols that took on polish remover with warmth, huge sting of booze, and crayon waxiness. The hops, too, changed with warmth, giving more bitter herbals and the high pitched scream of perfume-floral hops. Our first impression was that the flavoring was very juicy and sweet, with nice hop bitterness to balance. As we sipped, grapefruit and lemony hops crashed the palate, with a quick shift to musty herbs, honey sweetness, pale and toasty grain, plastic phenols, and vodka booziness to bring us to the peak. Here we met hollow booziness, sweet cherries, and freshly sliced pineapples. The continued herbal hop bitterness actual helped to dull the booziness a bit. We finished with more pale malts, coiny metallics, apricot sweetness, citric and herbal hoppiness, dill, and mashed basil. The aftertaste breathed of musk, peppery booze, burnt pale grain, grapefruit hop resin, fresh grassiness, and hugely spicy phenols. The body was medium, and the carbonation was medium. There was soft pop, nice slurp and smack to each sip. Froth and cream were lesser, but not noticeably negative. The mouth was left bone dry following an oily coating and coolness. The abv was big, but this sipper was easy.
Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was the insanely bright aroma. This showed such a wild blend between fresh grapefruit-zested hops, strong booze, and phenols. This helped to keep this guy no nonsense. The taste followed nicely, with even balance between the sweets and the bitters. The booze did come out more strongly with warmth, so beware if you’re not all about that. This is a soft, fresh, unique, and highly drinkable beer.

16oz. draft at Crunchy's in East Lansing.
A - Pours a golden straw with a one-finger foamy white head. Light amount of sticky lacing.
S - Aromas of floral hops, pineapple, mango, and biscuity malt.
T - The taste follows the aroma. Upfront is a nice mix of biscuity malt and tropical fruits (pineapple and mango). The finish has a nice amount of resinous hops with some grapefruit.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
O - This is an excellent DIPA. For a 9.5% beer it is very drinkable. Lots of well rounded flavors. Delicious.
