I'm clearly an outlier compared to the community, but I thought this was a fantastic beer. Cutting to my biggest complaint, which is just stylistic, is that this was too dark and the malt character/flavor was too noticeable on the finish for a DIPA. IMHO :-) Other than that, this was a winner. Nice, resin-y notes, quite rich, good balance. I would drink this one again in a heartbeat.

Aside from the malt overpowering hops a bit for being a double IPA, it is overall it a pleasant beer and might serve as a good entry level beer into the double IPA style.

750 into imperial pint. A dark orange, copper with a quick fade light beige head. The aromas were of some tropicals, but mainly floral with pine undertones. The bottle spoke of crushed grapes and citrus. I did not get that. Shortly after my first sip my wife leaned in for a kiss and said "you taste like grape juice." Girl's got a stellar palate.

Taste varied only slightly from the aromas. Floral, pine hops up front (and plenty tasty mind you, not a critique) with some sweet maltiness across the palate. Finish had the advertised grapefruit. This was interesting as DIPAs go. It had the "balance" of big hop and malt, but the flavor left your tongue pretty quickly and did not linger as long as expected with the medium-plus mouth feel.. Still, a good DIPA but tough luck being from a part of the country where great DIPA's flow. Still worth a taste.

Pours a deep amber color. Not very well balanced. Very malt forward but still a decent beer. The Nelson hops were what caught my attention, so I was disappointed when I couldn't distinguish them over the malt
