4.53/5 rDev +7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
The moment the cap was popped this just oozed a beautiful whiffy glaze of husky lightly piney bitterness.
When poured this immediately formed an off white foamy 3/4 inch head which slowly shrunk but remained a decent ring ring for the duration. Nice light bright golden orangy slight haze colour. Initaially not much beading until I was about 1/3 of the way down the glass then many tiny tiny waves of ubiquitous beads.
A penetrating but trim and finesse bitterness. A great deep dry husky cleansing and dominating bitterness with some hop oily element there at the end as well. As it warms in the glass the body grows ever so slightly and takes on a a honeyish element.
Still not much more than medium bodied but supports all those 102 IBUs effortlessly without anything roidish whatsoever. Truly astounding. Must be some sort of world record and it just lets the beers many positive qualities just do the rounds around your sense.
Totally dominant and delicious. Was on my lips until the end of the evening.

A - clear amber, frothy one finger head fades to film.
S - tropical fruit salad, mango, floral hops.
T - on money, fruit salad still, pineapple, hops to the fore and well balanced. Little bittering hops makes easy drinking. Good malt backbone. Hint grapefruit / pine. Overall quite a moderate taste level.
M - medium weight, moderate carbonation. One stage from oily. No hint of ABV save a little warmth.
O - excellent effort, well balanced beer, not as in your face as I would have expected.
