4.31/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

25.4 ounce bomber poured into 16-ounce glass.

A: Half a finger of white head tops light gold, semi-transparent beer. Lovely lacing.

S: Grapefruit explosion, tangerine, cut grass, pine and hops.

T: Starts with the coniferous tree taste, switches to the citrus, then back to the coniferous tree. Very bitter, hoppy finish. Hoppy all around.

M: medium-bodied, high acidity and bitterness. Medium carbonation. Packing heat - slick.

O: >100 IBUs - i'm a hophead who has built up a tolerance to this hoppiness, and this still is going to kill my tastebuds for the day. Just extremely hoppy and bitter.

Serving type: nitro-bottle

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.

4.51/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a golden hue with a respectable head into a pint glass. Looks promising.

Smell is... whoa. Huge aromatics of citrus, pine, and pronounced grassy, herbal character. Cilantro. Pith. Coriander. All present. Along with the more typical hoppy aromas.

Taste follows the nose. Big flavors of grapefruit, rounded out by subtle notes of orange, cilantro, and coriander (yes, the spice). Faint hint of banana. A subtle sweetness frames the hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is solid, but crisp.

This is quite bitter for my usual preferences, but very drinkable with a lot to ponder. I love this. This is the kind of hoppiness I enjoy in a brew!
