4.25/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25
Served via bomber at The Crow's Nest in Johnstown, PA.
A: pale orange. Minimal head and lacing. Nice depth of color. Not quite crystal clear.
S: malty yet floral. Slight sweetness to go with a bready aroma. Very reminiscent of Great Divide pale ales.
T: immediate hops, but smooth. Not as overpowering as the 102 ibu would suggest. Malty backbone that finishes crisply. The tongue is left with a slight sweet after taste combined with a hoppy citrus note. Very balanced overall. Possible clove taste associated with a slight alcohol but. Pleasant.
M: solid, but not too thick. A medium bodied beer if there ever was one. Slightly sticky.
Overall: while the 102 ibu is intriguing, the fact that they use hop extract may decrease the hop bitterness. A beautiful beer. So balanced. A bomber may be the ideal serving size, as the profile changes as it warms up. Great beer

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.
