look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high light beige head that has excellent retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Moderately strong aromas of grapefruit hops are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is very citrusy and has lots of flavors of ruby red grapefruit and also has some bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of bitterness. No crispness is detectable.
O: This beer has lots of grapefruit flavors but isn't as complex as other Some of the other Imperial IPAs.

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

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.

A: Pours a transparent light amber and copper color with a limited white head that dissipates to a small ring around the top. There appears to be a light amount of carbonation.

S: There is an assertive hop profile in the nose. Sweet fruitiness and citrus fruits (grapefruit) accompany the hop backbone. There is also some hop piney aromas present. A light biscuity malt scent finishes off the nose.

T: The taste is similar to the smell but with a bit less hoppy taste and more pronounced biscuit malts. There is still the piney hops and citrus fruits as well.

M: This is a medium bodied beer, but it seems a bit watery. There is no carbonation in the feel at all.

O: This is a fine tasting IPA, but it seems a bit toned down for a DIPA. It is certainly drinkable and overall, not a bad offering.
