Pours a clear golden straw color into a tulip with a foamy, bright white 3 finger head that fades pretty fast and leaves spotty lace.
Lots of citrus hops undercut by a sweet floral note. Grapefruit, mango, lemon zest, a little peach, a touch of sweet malt and some floral hops in the nose.
There's a sweetness to the brew from start to finish that is quite nice. It's a caramel malt taste that meshes very well with the hops. The hop profile follows the nose, with interplay between juicy citrus (peach, grapefruit, lemon) and floral. I also get an onion/garlic flavor (in a good way) in the middle of the mouth and into the finish. A dry pine bitterness finishes out the beer.
Medium bodied, slightly creamy, very dry finish. Leaves an almost cotton-mouth feeling, which I've never experienced before. A little too dry for my liking, but the rest of the mouthfeel is solid. Slight warming alcohol that doesn't detract from drinkability.
At $5 a pop for a bomber, this is a really solid DIPA. Nothing mind-blowing, but a super reliable and tasty brew. A great go-to when you want a nice DIPA that you don't have to hunt down or take out a second mortgage for.

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.
