4.15/5 rDev +3%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle pours a golden light hazy orange color the smell is of hops, citrus great smell though could be stronger. Expect to be hit in the face with the hop presence and it's just not there in the nose for me. Hop bitterness is there on the tongue tastes great... none of the overpowering sweetness that you get with some double IPA's these days. very pleasant mouthfeel easily drinkable alcohol is well hidden in this 10% offering could put back a few of these before I realized it.

4.05/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
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.
