4.36/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

So one more beer on the wanted list is killed and consumed. Picked up the bomber on my trip to Atlanta, GA. I am a huge IPA/DIPA fan. But at the moment, I guess i am going through what they call Lupulin threshold shift. So my review might be biased on the lower side of things.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into large snifter.

A two finger thick white colored head. Disappears into a thin white layer. Just decent lacing left by the fading head. Otherwise the lacing is below normal. Pale golden in color. Very clear. Some bubbles.

As soon as the cap is just half open, the hop burst enters the nose. Flowery, citrus and resin aroma is pretty obvious. A comparatively good overall strength that stays almost the same and does not fade away. Very characteristic of an IPA aroma. Malt is apparent as well, but subdued to some extent by grassy and citrusy hops.

I expected more bitterness at 102 IBU, but did not get that. It still is very hop forward. A good amount of bitterness enters the mouth and hits the tongue. Some malt backbone as usual. Very well hidden alcohol, though 8% is not that high. ABV is not felt in either nose or taste. A very good hoppy bitter aftertaste. No room for malty sweetness. Leaves the palate dry.

Medium bodied mouth feel. A lot of oily character may be due to resin or piney hops. Very smooth. Slight astringency due to hops, but i did not feel it. Very moderate carbonation. Drinks really easy.

A nice brew overall. Well worth the hype/reputation. Only thing i missed was may be some bitterness at 102. Sad for me. I will need to revisit this.

if Hop Stoopid didn't exist, man would have had to create him... or something like that. This beer is a winner, and not as pricey as the other big bottles on the shelf. Bitter was never so sweet. Pair with spicy food of choice and wash those scoville units to hell.

Great color and decent head. Very enjoyable beer overall. I can't quite put my finger on what it"s missing but there is something small holding it back from being near the top for me. It's definitely a beer I will recommend and buy in the future though.

Great beer. Great taste. Goes down as one of the tops... for now.
This wasn't on my "to-drink" list, but I made an exception. I'm glad I did.

A- Looks great, but I'll admit, I drank it right out of the bottle.
S-scent was of a perfect for a solid drinkable beer. Not over powering to the point that you felt like you had to brace yourself for a kick in the mouth, but not weak.
T- taste, my favorite part. It was good, very good. Easy and smooth. A great hop taste and even flavor.

O- this is a good solid beer. You should definitely check it out.
