For me, this is a pretty typical Imperial IPA even though it seems to not have as much of a wallop as other exponents of the style.

Pours an orangey color & smells candy-sweet. Flavor is a big hit of grapefruit up-front and a malty sweetness giving way to a big boozy mouthful.

Not my usual style but nothing terribly special about it in a city/region where a ton of these are brewed.

An appearance darker than your average ipa, almost light brown and auburn. 1/2" white head. Aroma wasn't really hoppy.

A sweet ipa, caramel sweetness. Grapefruit with sugar added to cut the bitterness. Bomber format sucks, would not repeat buy, nothing unique or awesome here. Comes off like a brown lactose ale.
