Poured into my Bell's tulip glass.

A-Pours bright amber color with a one finger head. Nothing really out of the ordinary for the style.

S-This beer has one of the most pleasant aromas that i have smelt in a long time. The grapefruit smell of the hops hits you right off the bat with small notes of pine.

T-The taste definitely follows the nose and opens up with a tropical fruity bouquet of hop flavor that seems to be dominated by notes of grapefruit and pineapple. That is balance with a light sweetness from the malts and honey. Leaves a slightly bitter alcohol aftertaste that you would expect a DIPA of this strength to leave.

M-Thin silky mouthfeel with a mild amount of carbonation that adds a subtle sharpness.

D-Pretty drinkable beer considering the 10% ABV. My palate says yes while my brain and body say slow down.

With as much hype as it received and how difficult it was to obtain it i was fully expecting to be let down, but surprise when i really enjoyed it. It's definitely a first class DIPA, however a bit overhyped (due to the ridiculous lack of supply). That being said i will still probably get up early and wait in line next year just to get me a 6-pack.
