Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is exploding with grapefruit and honey.
The taste starts with some bold lemon and grapefruit bitterness, then turns to a honey and malt sweet finish.
The texture is light and airy.
The taste is a bit sweet for me, but great aroma and texture.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Honey gold in color, big off white head builds and sticks to the top most of the way through, big sticky lace down the glass makes this one nice looking beer. Smell is of candied orange, grapefruit, lemon, and cake like sweetness. Taste is hop forward, soft cake like malt backbone from the wheat works it's way in and out with flavors of citrus and tropical fruit in the form of orange, grapefruit, pineapple and mango. Medium body doesn't show the heft of the ABV, sharp carbonation breaks into a more creamy and coating feel on the finish. Overall this is a great DIPA which uses light malt flavors and showcases some really fruity hops.
