Nose is really a pungent grapefruit. Not bad, but just different. Grapefruit is overwhelming.

Taste is a little off. The lack of balance shows through in the after taste. Definitely a notch below others I have reviewed.

I can session with up to 6%, but this is not a sessionable beer for me because of the extreme bitterness at the end. The palate is punished, and not in a good way.

So, it's not sessionable, and not an occasion beer, so I don't see it getting any space in my fridge anytime soon. It's really a notch below the Sculpin and Stone's Ruination IPA, imo. It's not even in the same universe as the Enjoy By.
