Poured into a SA perfect pint, it glows a hazy amber. The head is modest, mostly large bubbles that cling to the edges but don't dissipate until the beer is a memory. Small filmy lace spots speckle my glass when all is commenced.
Loads of bubblegum and citrus fill the nostrils, primarily sweet and bitter pink grapefruit. Leafy garden greens and The malt base is substantial and offers bold caramel, toffee and sweet flavors.
Zesty orange and tangerine flavors are up front accompanied by a pine and grapefruit bitterness that escalates and eventually dominates the finish. It is all checked by a moderate amount of sweet and toasty malt cues. They certainly did not neglect the grains needed to back 90+ IBU's, therefor balance and flavor are right on.
The viscosity of this one is excellent, it just fills the dark corners of the mouth with a resiny goodness. The carbonation is sharp initially and mellows out with just a bit of a tickle and all finishes dry and earthy.
I wouldn't expect anything else from GT brewing. They have always delivered a robust west coast hop profile and balanced it wonderfully with more than a minimal malt backing. This beer is 5 months after the brewed on date and still delivers.

Served on tap into a tulip glass.
A- Poured a hazy orange color with off-white soapy head with big bubbles that left webbed lacing.
S- Huge pungent grapefruit, piney, and orange citrus notes. Lots of huge juicy hop character in the aroma, very strong and aromatic.
T- Lots of sweet and juicy grapefruit, big piney hops, orange citrus, dankness, and some tropical fruit notes. Very pungent, juicy, and lots of sweetness for a DIPA, but pretty low bitterness for the style.
M-Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, some warming, semi-dry finish, and slightly syrupy.
O- This is an intensely hoppy and enjoyable DIPA> Very concentrated hoppiness with lots of residual sweetness but not over the top.
Serving type: on-tap
