A- Orange-tinged, amberish color. Large head no matter how you pour. Foamy and just won't lay down.
S- Hops. Grapefruit citrus notes, very floral and pungent. Slight metallic qualities and some light alcohol.
T&M- This has some bite to it. Very bitter hops. Absolutely overpowers the malt though some mild sweetness peaks briefly. Grapefruit is strong but the hops kick you butt until the end. Bitterness builds until I can't finish the bottle. I would say it is medium bodied with some tight carbonation.
D- As one of my first forrays into DIPA's, I didn't think I would ever like them after this one. I have heard some say this is more IPA but I think you guys are nuts and need to give your palate a break. 72 IBU's is damn high. I will have to share my last bottle as I know I couldn't finish it.
