A a very nice gold, a softer side of orangish yellow. Lots of bubbles and a thick head with strong retention and surprisingly good lacing. 4
S lots of brightness in here--pineapple strangely enough comes to the front of the nose, followed by light lemon and orange rind. Strong hoppy profile, though not very herbal or grassy. 4.25
T citrus forward, though not as much pineapple as is in the nose. Grapefruity bitterness supplemented by the buttering hop backend. Boozy in the finish, which takes away from the overall citrus palate. Still very good. 4.5
M standard mouthfeel--heavy enough I stand shoulders above a standard IPA, but not a huge deviation from the norm. 4.25
O this is big and robust, but the higher alcohol content stands out and mutes some of the flavor. Single jack is I think more balanced. 4.25

Nice double ipa. Nice and Fruity taste and smell. Grapefruit is very overpowering but in a refreshing way. Like a very fine wine this is a classical combination with just enough zest and peel but not overpowering. Would buy again as a spring and summer beer.

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

Poured into tulip glass from 12 oz bottle (stamped 3/5/14). Clear golden honey color with a finger of off-white head which was a bit soapy looking with minimal lacing. Smell is of sharp citrus (grapefruit), piney resin and alcohol. Taste is sharp bitter hops, some floral notes, a malt backbone and a warming alcohol aftertaste. The mouthfeel is a bit sticky with moderate carbonation and coats the tongue quickly. The finish is bitter and dry, reminding me of very dry white wine. The alcohol was initially a bit too pronounced for my liking. About halfway through the glass my palette got used to this beer and I enjoyed its characteristics more.
