18th Street / Mikkeller collaboration

Appearance: A three finger head builds atop the cloudy honey colored liquid; a good deal of splashy lacing

Smell: Smells like a grapefruit squeeze, pith and juice

Taste: Grapefruit juice and pith, with shortbread malt tones underneath; quite bitter, after the swallow, with the resultant aspirin bitterness overwhelming the flavor profile

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Appropriately named, this is a nice, older style DIPA but it does have that aspirin tone I often get from Amarillo hops - I would score it higher if the fruit tones were dominant in the finish

Thanks, TravisMason, for the opportunity

Amber color, little hazy, one finger off-white head
Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, malt,
Taste is lots of grapefruit, well rounded malt profile, big mouthfeel, perfect example of a dipa.

Slightly hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma has overripe citrus fruits and sweet malts, even a kind of flour flavor. Medium body and carbonation, slightly boozy on the finish. Overall it's a decent DIPA but nothing to remember.
