Something very hoppy came this way with this beer. It poured a hazy golden with thin head that left a spotty lace. The scent carried fresh hops which leaned more towards bitter citrus. The taste has very hoppy and bitter...but not overly bitter. There was enough malt to help balance the beer. Grapefruit was the primary driver for this fine ale. The mouthfeel was medium in body with subtle carbonation. Overall this was a good beer....but 10% abv and the price keeps it from being a go to. Certainly worth a try, but I would go out of my way to search for this.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip
Bottled 10-18-13

A- A brilliant hazy orange color with one finger of head.

S- Mango, fresh grapefruit, and a bit of mary J. A sweeter aroma and very pleasant.

T- A crisp but not overwhelming bitterness at first. A massively complex hop profile takes over. A bold citrus consisting of grapefruit and fresh mango's. A hint of Mary J and some grassyness. As well as a hint of lemongrass. Not much malt flavor but what is there balances the hops very well.

M- Strong but very easy drinking and well balanced.

O- Been a while since I had a DIPA this good. Really solid stuff.
