look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Long-lasting foam in the Duvel tulip with a golden amber color. Aroma of grapefruit and something flowery. Quite spritzy in the mouth.

This is a big, bitter kind of IPA. It's dripping with hop oils and the acidity that goes with an overabundance of hops. Starts with massive grapefruit peel and descends into total bitterness. If there are some malt flavors my tongue is too buckled to determine.

This is pretty much the textbook example of a "West Coast" IPA. The rest of the bottle will serve for bittering some innocuous brew. Too bitter to be very drinkable but the hop obsessives will want to try this one. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Barons Marketplace in San Diego.
