Enjoy by 6/24/13
A - Hazy orange that pours a massive head. Looks great in the glass.
S - Easily the highlight of the beer. Tropical notes with orange and grapefruit shining, smells great.
T - At first is a wave of tropical fruit with buttering hops, then on the backend is extreme EXTREME bitterness. Probably the most bitter beer I've had that stays in the back if your tongue for minutes on end.
M - Typical DIPA, medium mouthfeel
O - Palate Wrecker is exactly what it calls itself, don't plan in enjoying any other beers after you have this one. I'd recommend it being the last beer of the night. I enjoyed it but I enjoy big bitter hopbombs. This might have been a bit too much in terms of the backend bitterness for me but to each his own. Great DIPA.

BBD 6/27/14. Pours a clear medium amber with a nice dark ruby hue. Average head and lacing. Rich nose of grapefruit, with hints of other sweet citrus, over a light background of pine and caramel malt. Medium body with a smooth texture. The carbonation level is on the low end of normal. The complex flavor profile is a hop assault over a nice caramel balance. Grapefruit begins the assault with notes of other citrus. It then progresses to pine coupled with a nice intense bitterness that is pine and grapefruit rind. Towards the end, a well balanced caramel sweetness emerges to somewhat soothe the palate. The finish is an alcohol burn at the back of the throat with lingering bitterness and tartness. This one is not for the faint hearted.
