Very nice hoppy beer. 22 oz bomber poured into an oversize wineglass.
A - Color is copper with a bit heavy carbonation, the head was very nice at 2 fingers, and the beer was clear. This beer laced very nicely and better than most.
S - On the nose was an immediate citrusy aroma surrounded by pine (almost reminded me of being in the woods on summer afternoons following a rain), there was a slight hint of floral and a sprinkling of biscuit.
T - The immediate taste was of cirtus, and the pine came through once it rolled over the tongue. A very nice bitter flavor once the beer entered the throat, and there was a very strong hop leftover once the beer was swallowed.
M - Very nice medium body with a smooth finish. This beer seems to be a little heavier on the carbonation, but overall was very pleasing in the mouth.
D - Yes, very nice drinkability. I could have several of these without much problem. I wouldn't call it a session beer but definately a beer to have again, and again.

Julian dating on the 22oz bomber revealed to be from May 20th (so almost 2 months on this by the time I cracked it open and poured it into the tulip glass). Might have wanted it a bit fresher, but that is no news flash. 1 and 1/2 fingers of white head which dissipated quickly and left some nice lacing. Interesting tangerine hue in the light, very tempting. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and bitterness (yes, bitterness... this IS a 102 IBU brew!). Pine notes on the front wave of the taste profile, along with a citrusy (almost lemony) mid-note, with a big bitter finish. Continual carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel, and a slightly oily presence on the back end. This had a nice balance for a big beer, and though I was v. happy... would have to try one that was super fresh to make this a go-to choice.
