Finally found this in SC and got a bottle.
Being bottle conditioned I fliped the bottle a few times to mix up the sediment from the bottom of the bottle. This beer poured a hazy dark orange color with a good floral/grapefruit aroma. Looking through the glass it's a nice cloudy beer with floating particles throughout.
First sip was "WOW"...this is a serious beer. Huge hoppy/grapefruit flavor with some alcohol taste following, a little think but very dirnkable. BR didn't hold back in making this beer, it's really good!

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
