Pours a pure amber, clear body, head just under an inch.
Smells pretty dank, lots of peach, some mandarin orange, some sweet malt.
Taste is dank, has a little peach again, some orange, some grapefruit maybe, lots of fruit but not too bitter, fairly sweet with a big malt backbone, pretty spicy hop character too.
Good carbonation, fairly thick body, not as dry as I like my IPAs but pretty drinkable.
Good beer! Big fruit character, fairly hoppy, pretty malty too which isn't my thing but this is really good. Glad to finally get to try this!

64oz, filled 4/4/13, drank 4/12/13
A: Clear orange amber like color. Full finger of off white head initially. Faded to a layer. Leaves some sticky lacing.
S: Juicy fruit character. Over ripe peach and mango. Some herbal notes. Sweet malts there as well.
T: Big hops up front. Tons of that same fruit that you smelled. But there is a good layer of sweet malts to match it. Maybe an herbal like flavor. Finish has lingering fruity hops.
M: Big medium. Has some body.

Bottle from Capone's. Smooth DIPA, full of citrus hop flavour and flavour up front. You do not notice the palate erasing as you are bribed by the flavour. Nice malt supportVery good drinkability and style representative. Cloudy orange appearance.Top level label.

Bottle poured into tulip. 2013 vintage acquired via trade.
I feel like someone beat me on the head with one of those bags of citrus fruit they sell tourists driving on I-75 entering Florida. Not that that's a bad thing. I tend to like more of a hop punch, but the flavor is there in moderation. Poured a nice copper color, moderate carbonation. The alcohol content is well-disguised - could easily knock back a bunch of these without thinking much about it.

12 ounce bottle -> Dogfish Head Glass
This one doesn't seem to be that balanced between malt and hops but that is okay. It is a citrus bomb following by a massive bitterness. The alcohol is very well hid for a beer with that much alcohol. Nose is very floral and citrus. Mouthfeel is pretty nice. Try this one if you like the grapefruit.

Pours golden orange.
Lots of orange and pine in the nose.
Taste is orange rind, pine, lemon and other fruit. Pleasant malt backbone with good bitterness that lingers well.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated.
Overall this was really great. Will definitely buy again.
