Bottled in February, so this has enough age on it to possibly affect the review. Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a: Clear amber with an inch thick offwhite head which receded to thick even surface foam and dense lacing.

s; Citrus.

t: Bitter hops up front, followed by a medicinal note and then more hop and grapefruit peel bitterness, all over a solid biscuit malt base. Bitterness lingered on an otherwise dry finish. The rough edges of the bitterness naturally faded during consumption, and throughout the high ABV was very well covered,

m: Medium plus, very good body, plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: When I saw the "brewed with grapefruit peel" on the bottle of this recent Wormtown offering I immediately thought of Grapefruit Sculpin, which I found too bitterly citrus rather than flavorfully so to be particularly tasty. Same here, although this one has more substance to it and mellowed out better.

Pours a clear copper, leaves a fizzy white head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaves a moderate amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell is fairly mute, light hoppy fruit aroma and that is it.

Taste is pleasantly fruity, with grapefruit and tropical fruit notes, for 120 IBU, it is very balanced and not overwhelming at all. Still cakes my tongue with a bit of resinous bitter, but certainly nothing that turns me away. Find the malt takes much backseat to the hops.

Medium light bodied, leaves very clean, but not crisp.

Surprising to find an IPA that has some balance to it's flavor, and wouldn't turn it down if I was offered some.

Great DIPA. Malts and hops move in tandem, great grapefruit with a hint of pineapple on the finish. 120 ibus, but not a abhorrent piney resin bomb.
