Far too intense. A palate wrecker for sure. Much prefer Bengali.

God damn is this a tasty beer. Reminds me of a west coast dbl IPA while still maintaining Sixpoint's distinguishable style and class. A few of these went down real nice on a freezing cold night while I dreamed of cornucopias filled with fresh citrus fruits and the sun shining on my face.

12oz can poured into pint glass. Clear golden color; thick head settled slowly, substantial lacing; prominent citrus scent (if you like grapefruit hop flavor, you know you'll like this beer as soon as you get a whiff); crisp but there's some substance to the feel; grapefruit flavor profile, not too bitter with a hint of something sweet at the end. Overall: really good. Sixpoint says "it stings" but while this is very hoppy, it's got more nuance than just a hop bomb. (9.25)

Very boozy and, I'll keep it in mind, next time I plan on getting arrested. Seriously though, behind all of it is some underlying notes of peach skin and delicious red apples. This might not be for everyone given the aggressive nature, but there's a lot more to pull than alcohol, grapefruit and malt. This is super fresh, and I dig it. Can youuuuuuuu dig it?
