4.16/5 rDev -3%
12oz bottle (Enjoy by Jul 06 2014) poured into a Bruery tulip.
A - Pours a hazy, peachy colored body with a thick finger of densely foamed white head with good staying power. Several minutes passes by before the head recedes to leave a thick collar and foamy lacing on the glass.
S - Very fresh grapefruit aroma that dominates the entire aroma. Very much like fresh squeezed juice with a touch of sugary sweetness added to it. Also getting traces of oranges and hints of grassiness too. Not much else, but I don't feel like I am missing out on anything either.
T - Definitely a big citrusy grapefruit flesh and also the rind here, but not as dominant as in the aroma. Apricots, a bit of booze, medium hop bitterness that is clean and crisp, low level sweet malty-ness. Low level earthy flavors too.
M - Medium body with a medium high lively carbonation. Combination of malt sweetness and earthy-ness at the base underneath a bitter grapefruit hoppiness. Clean, pretty dry finish with lingering citrus bitterness.
O - Very good, but not amazing DIPA. Too many other good ones out there to get too excited about this one. Solid, well made and highly enjoyable, but just not wowing me either. I had high expectations on this one - can't say I am really disappointed, but didn't live up either. I would easily get this again, but wouldn't go crazy looking for it.

Had a growler filled at Premier Gourmet this weekend....I love that place.Poured into an impy nonic a clear light to medium golden with a great looking blooming white head that left two multiple rings of lace as it settled into a frothy mass.Pine and grapefruit along with sugary sweetness in the nose,there is drunken fruit element to it.Fresh citric hops greet the taste buds that melds into a grassiness and then into a sweet dough caramel base,a sugary alcohol element is there but doesn't overpower the hops.I like it,top 5....not sure,but it kicks ass.

12oz bottle poured into Mr. Pint.
Appearance: A hazy, mostly translucent yellow with brisk bubbling action and a white head that leaves a little bit of lacing on the side of the glass as it slowly dies down.
Smell: Holy complex nose, Batman! Citrus, hops, pine, grass, grapefruit all just take their turn in blasting out for my enjoyment.
Taste: Very much reflects the nose. Nice, complex - and distinct - flavors centered around citrus, pine, grass, and hops hit pretty good.
Mouthfeel: Pretty crisp. A little bit of the pine lingers as an aftertaste.
Overall: Well, then. $9.45 for a 4 pack well spent!

4.15/5 rDev -3.3%
A: A light colored DIPA that is a deep golden beer with good clarity. The white head is quick to fade into a thin cap of soapy bubbles.
S: A strong citrus hops aroma that mostly has notes of grapefruit, pine, some pineapple and a fair amount of an herbal character. There is a light malt a sweetness and a low alcohol sweetness.
T: An aggressive hops bitterness and a very strong citrus hop flavors. The hop flavors are a lemon/lime, pine, some mango and little citrus zest. There is just enough malt for support and nothing more making for a very bitter balance. The finish is off-dry with a lingering, citrus hops flavor and bitterness. There is some herbal qualities to the hop flavor that is more apparent towards the finish.
M: A medium bodied beer with a light creaminess and a strong level of carbonation.
O: A very well crafted Double IPA that brings a ton of American citrus hops to the party. The entire focus and balance of the beer is out towards showcasing the hops.
