Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Cloudy grapefruit juice pour... thick and opaque with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Great lacing.

S: Grapefruit juice and tropicals.

T/F: Bitter hops but muted... strong grapefruit. Milder pineapple/tropicals. A little more punchy than some of the others in the 'v' series. Medium bodied... sticky/oily on the tongue. ABV hidden but present.

O: A big fruity juice-bomb DIPA... similar to others in the series but a little more bitter with higher ABV. Not my favorite of the 'v' beers but damned good. I only wish they lasted a bit longer. One you have to drink fast as they definitely tail off quickly at the 'best by'.
