Pours an amber/golden color with a off white head. The head thins out as you drink it but it leaves a lot of lacing. Smells of fresh American hops, piney and slightly citrusey. Tastes a hell of a lot like grapefruit from the hops. This is common in a lot of DIPAs I've had, but I've never had one that had it this obvious. There's a lot of hop bitterness, but it doesn't overwhelm the beer. I've had pale ales that "taste" more bitter, despite the 102 IBU scrawled across the top of the label. This is a fairly hyped beer and I was afraid it wasn't gonna live up to it but it does. I have a feeling the scores on this one will be very high, but I think I like Stone's interpretation of the beer better. I don't feel like I should score it lower since its so well balanced though.

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.
