A big cream-colored head of small bubbles sits atop a slightly hazy, deep burnished gold liquid that looks very inviting. The aroma is of grapefruit with background notes of resinous, piney, spicy and earthy characters, but not just from the hops. There's also a nice balance of bread crust and bready notes. There is some grainy, caramel, and bread crust depth to the malt character in the flavor, along with big (but nicely balanced) grapefruit, and a rustic spiciness with a crisp and clean bitterness level. The finish is dry with notes of tropical fruit that linger. Overall, this Double IPA is very nicely balanced -- sure, it features a huge hop profile, but the malt provides a great counterpoint and balance. This is an amazing DIPA that's perfect for sipping (use a snifter to contain all the hop aromas), but the tropical fruitiness would also go very nicely with some dry-rubbed Memphis-style baby back ribs.
