Purchased from Green's Midtown for $7.49. Slight cloudy orange pour into a Duvel stem. Smallish white finger of white froth. Super bright aroma, pineapple and mango whiffs bursting into my nostrils. Huge right off the bat- tropical fruits and pine. Crunchy grapefruit rind, white pepper in the middle. Massive, dense and resiny. What I loved about this the most is that with all of this hop flavor, there was no messy malt sweetness to be had. Clean and highly drinkable for 11%. Could be my #1 Terrapin to date.

Poured into a rinsed chalice from the bottle.
A: hazy golden deep orange Suspended carbonation or solids, can't tell. one finger head quickly dissipated to a thick collar and some islands of bubbly head. Some say generous lacing, I am getting some but not generous. No legs are visible.
S: Musty grapefruit. Synephrine laced orange pith. Carmel or other medium roasted malts. Malted milk ball centers.
T: Puckery grapefruit, bitter citrus. Huge malt stands up very well to the hops. Sweetness like a candy sugar, most likely unfermented caramel malts and not candy sugar. Bittersweet is the perfect moniker for this beer. Yeast is not offensive, just a light estered note.
M: SMOOOTH,carbonation is spot on and malts are generating some sweet smoothness. Very slightly dry at finish with phenolic notes on outbreath. Hides booziness pretty well.
O: Big. Has the most grapefruit notes I have had since Devil Dancer, without the huge dryness and desert parching qualities of DD. This is pretty good for a high IBU grapefruit bomb.
