Fruity, piney, and delicious. It finally made it to my little area of NW Ohio and I'm impressed.

L) Pours a hazy amber with some hope residue floaters. Maintains a clean white head and has decent lacing.

S) The smell is pure white grapefruit rind with a smidgeon of white pepper and pine needle. It is super juicy, sappy, and inviting.

T) Everything present in the nose is in the taste, although there isn't really that much of a spicy note. The hop profile is amplified quite well with a subtle malt profile with light honey and caramel characteristics. Doesn't linger for too long.

F) Medium carbonation with a smooth and full mouth-feel, but not as creamy as I would like, although this is a hop forward DIPA so it isn't the end of the world.

O) Solid DIPA coming from 3Floyds, nothing out of the ordinary, although it is far from my favorite of their offerings.

I poured this into a tulip and a chalice. The appearance was a nice golden orange brown in color with a decent one finger foamy head that rises a bit and falls in a concave sort of fashion leaving some nice foamy lacing in the wake of the fall. The smell had a ton of grapefruit up front with a decent caramel malty background delicately combining nicely. The taste was almost a perfect bittersweet between the hops and the malts as it wanted to pummel my taste buds but left just enough assault to still let the tastiness of this beer to wrap itself delicately around my mouth and tongue. There was a light grapefruit like aftertaste to lead into a dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable quality running about my mouth and tongue. The carbonation pummels my mouth and tongue a bit, but not too much. Overall, this is an absolutely wonderful DIPA well worthy of having again.

Beautiful foamy head over a slightly hazy golden body. Nose has this strong apricot nectar think straight away while a little pear and grass backs in behind. Taste supports the apricot and pear but ups the ante with honey and pine until alcohol and tobacco finishes it off in sweet, bitter and nearly burning fashion.

Golden orange with very little head or lacing. Couldn't really smell much since I had this at the brew pub, but made out a floral scent.

Crisp, hoppy bitterness obviously, but not overly so. Grapefruit and orange notes, with a sweet malt taste coming through at the end. This is a very "drinkable" beer, but was expecting something more intense for the IBU/ABV.
