Poured a golden yellow with a 1 finger head and a good amount of lacing. Smells of pineapple, mango, and sweet malt. Taste matches the aroma - pineapple and mango up front with peach flavor in the middle. A little taste of alcohol on the finish. A pronounced sweetness throughout. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with good carbonation.
Overall this is an awesome IIPA. It is sweet, but not cloyingly so. Very big fruit flavors from the Citra dry hop but balanced by the big dose of Maris Otter malt.

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.
