look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Reviewed solo poured into a short pilsner glass.
Appearance: Pours a 1/2 finger head, slight cloudy yellow and wheat.
Smell: I got a ton of sweet hops and lychee fruit and a hint of soap.
Taste: Opens with a sweet freshly peeled lychee fruit acidity which intertwines with a green and fresh hop profile. The sweetness of this DIPA is almost making this brew a bit boozie. The green hoppiness lingers as well as the acidic fruit well into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, light bodied and leaves a slight film on the tongue which makes you want more.
Drinkability: I would definitely have this again and recommend this to those who seek a uniquely exotic fruity open with a nice mesh of hops which compliment those fruit open.

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.
