3.73/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass at 45F.

A - This pours a deep golden orange with a pretty thick, dense head with good retention and above-average lacing.

S - Disappointingly mild. Surely citrusy grapefruit there, but it was a lot more subtle, and required a much deeper inhale, then I was expecting for such a hoppy beer.

T - A bit one dimensional IMHO, but in that one dimension it does shine. Having read so many comments from people stating that this is their favorite DIPA, perhaps I was expecting a bit more. It is indeed quite hoppy, with great
citrus and floral flavors, as well as good bitterness, but the malts are truly hidden and overpowered. That said, much better tasting then the Lagunitas 2009 Correction Ale.

M - Nice mouthfeel, but not amongst the best I've had. A slight bit watery, with moderate carbonatio.

D - Pretty high considering its 8% ABV that is well hidden and sneaks up on you. I could easily go back to this one, even if I might not seek it out. Heck, you almost have to if you want to drink anything else, given this one's hop profile.

If hops do truly help provide tranquil sleep, I will be sleeping well tonight.

3.74/5  rDev -11%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
