Light brown in color off of the pour. A very light bit of foam remains after the pour. The nose is a faint but it is definitely all about the hops. Faint but apparent grapefruit hops on the nose. The flavoring is all hops with the grapefruit and slightly orange flavor. The hops are what you get in the aftertaste and there is a nice hop fade on the tongue. A pretty brisk mouthfeel and it is fairly refreshing. Very well done.

Poured into an impy nonic a clear medium golden with a large blooming one and a half finger white head atop that left multiple rings of broken chunks behind as it settled.Caramel malts and tropical fruits in the nose,sweet but not overly so.I like the full almost airy feel in the mouth,it went down nicely.Flavors of grilled pineapple and citrus with a tinge of vidalia onion the is a little off putting at first but doesn't overpower like another Colorado brewed beer wich I won't name.It's sweet but not nearly as sweet as way to many of the style,a worthy anniversary beer from a solid brewery.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: good clarity, orangey with white creamy head

Aroma: very piney, like a fresh cut Christmas tree, citrus aromas as well, biscuity malt

Taste: outrageously piney and grapefruity with an almost indetectable biscuity malt backbone, clean yeast

Mouthfeel: oddly light and crisp for a 9.7% ale. Medium carbonation

Overall: Delicious. Definitely worth a try. A step up from most DIPAs in terms of piney and grapefruity character that literally explodes on your taste buds

Floral, grass, some pineapple and light tropical fruit astringency. Sweet pink grapefruit in the background along with some pine and very, very slight resin stickiness. Very noticeable breadiness and biscuit sweetness. Really nice DIPA - not very aggressive, but well balanced and big on the floral, grass, and light-fruit sweetness.
