Pours a amber honey color with abundant creamy foam head. Smells like grapefruit pith,apricot,mild BBQ sauce( non hickory), some ethyl also. Tastes somewhat astringent with malts struggling to suppress the massive hop presence. Stone fruits,burnt toffee, diluted maraschino cherry juice. Feels well carbonated, not too slick, but not dry either. This is barely a 2X IPA with the alcohol taste seems much higher. Overall a robust east coast style IPA. Worth trying.

Poured a cloudy amber with a decent head. Slightly musty smell, with a whiff of hop bitterness. Semi viscous with a slight maltiness followed by a bitter finish. Coated the mouth well but I wouldn't rate it as high as most on BA.

Smell has light citrus notes to it and is not overly pungent. Color is a deep amber color with slight head, Taste is light, not hoppy, and has citrus undertones. Slightly bitter aftertaste that one can feel in the mouth. Would pair well with sandwiches at lunch.

Very unusual beer. First off, the smell is horrible so don't judge it on smell (at all). The taste, as others have said is fruity, somewhat tropical with an emphasis on grapefruit. Overall not too bad and a good diversion. Would I buy it again? Who knows with this one...but likely not.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Hearty amber color with some haziness. Thick, slightly off-white head with very good retention. Leaves excellent lacing.

S---Tropical fruit up front. Mild floral notes.

T---Juicy grapefruit. Nicely balanced between hops and malts. Maybe some passionfruit or mango.

F---Juicy & wet. Quenching. Nicely carbonated.

O---Excellent IPA. Never had before, but hope to find it again.

Buy from whole foods. One of the first 'premium' beers that got me started.

Wow! Excellent. A nice cloudy orange pour. Thick foamy head that doesn't fade. A nice bright hoppy flavorful taste. Citrus and almost sweet with a nice bitter finish. A fantastic IPA. Hooray!
