look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a bright orange and yields 2 fingers of cream-colored head. I can smell the hops from the pour alone... and it's intense. Closer smell gives the overpowering, citrusy, dank hop smell you'd expect from a 102 IBU brew. The taste definitely has a powerful PINEY bitter hop smack but doesn't have the grapefruit-y citrus taste that I like in my DIPAs. Might sound like I'm splitting hairs here... but when you drink enough explosively-hoppy beers, you know the subtle flavors that make or break a beer for you.
Great beer for hop-heads, though. 5 mins after the last sip, my tongue feels like it's still coated in bitter hop residue. And for $5 for a bomber from my local deli, you can't beat the value. Overall: thumbs up.

3.74/5 rDev -11%

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.
