This is a great iipa! I feel it's up there with Pliny the Younger... and a whole lot easier to get!

Light, clean amber color with a thick creamy head. Aroma is heavy on grapefruit with modest floral notes around the edges. Taste is sour grapefruit, a little bit peppery, a touch floral, with a subtle honey background in the malt. Juicy at first then a dry biscuit finish. Surprisingly smooth both in taste and feel - fortunately lacking the harsh astringency of many strong IPAs - while yet possessing a nice, bright crispness too. Don't let the name scare you, this one doesn't sting a bit. Overall a very pleasurable IPA to spend time with.

Served in a pint glass at Clyde Commons.

The nose is floral fruit, jasmine and raspberries.

It's very bitter. Aggressively hoppy. I love it. Some fruitiness, but only just and mostly on the end. Otherwise it's grapefruit peel and hop acids.

Quite drinkable; I have no complaints. Highly recommended.

Really Fantastic DIPA. Not too bitter, with a slightly sweet finish. I would put this up against PtE anyday.
