It has an orange zest with a citric and ripened fruit smell with a bready sweet malt and some alcohol mixed in with that. It has a nice orange tasting hop bite in the front with that sweet almost syrupy bready malts and the aftertaste is the citric bite it left in your mouth.
Its a tangy IPA its pretty delicious and is definitely a beer that needs to be warmed up. The alcohol is noticeable but really balances a lot better when warmed up. It is 10.3 percent so it is expected.
I like the juicy citrus hop bite this one produces. Terrapin always makes a very tasty beer. This one being no exception. It definitely can stand up to the other big double IPA's out there.

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.
