This was something I was looking forward to and was so dissapointed. The grapefruit was way too strong and I had no desire to even finish the whole beer. I see what they were going for....but just struck out.

Straw yellow, slightly orange with a low white head that rises up minimally and settles quickly. Low aroma of resiny citrus, notes of pine. Flavor matches the nose, rich honey malt rides beneath. Notes of solventy alcohol in the finish. Very slick and watery mouthfeel. This one is apparently in high demand, but it's seeming pretty average to me.

This one just did not do it for me. Too boozy with little hop flavor and kind of a nasty bitterness in the aftertaste. There are plenty of better DIPAs out there...

Melon, orange, Grapefruit pith and pine. Fairly malt forward. From what I can tell, this was canned yesterday. It's really not that good. I guess it gets better as it warms, but not by much. tastes like its old. Ugh.

Look - An orange that I cannot see through. There was a minimal white foamy head to it.
Smell - Mostly pine with a hint of orange after smell to it.
Taste - Hoppy taste mixed with some fruits. This was a fairly unique taste that I can't say that I enjoyed nor disliked.
Feel - Really lacking a kick despite the higher alcohol percent and the carbonation is definitely noticeable.
Overall - It wasn't my favorite because of too much fruit tied with this drink.
