3.68/5 rDev -12.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
appearance- not much of a head with no retention and slight lacing. Clear and golden in color.
smell- faint citrus, specifically oranges. Sugars are noticeable
taste- fresh, citrus hops with oranges and flowers are balanced with fair amount of sweetness in the malts. Spices and orange lingers in the aftertaste along with some hoppy bitterness. At 8%, alcohol is not noticeable.
mouthfeel- medium body and a bit chalky and fizzy on the tongue.
drinkability- this goes down easy... more like a 6.5%.
summary- this is a nice IPA with fresh citrus hops. If you like orange notes this is the one to behold. It does not feel like a double. It is missing that big malt and hops punch that I expect of the style. None the less it is decent and flavorful. Presentation was sub-par though. I think the ABV is lower than advertised.

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.
