Reviewed on 2009-03-30.

Pours a light clear amber with a small white head into a snifter.

Nose is an intense citrus blend of grapefruit and orange, with a small bit of woody and vanilla notes trying to come through. Struck me immediately after opening the bottle. An intense and fully enjoyable aroma.

Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied, crisp, medium to low carbonation. Surprisingly refreshing for a double IPA.

Taste is all about the hops. I'm hard pressed to find anything else of note to mention. Citrusy and a little piney. A little of that vanilla showing through as it warms a bit. The bitter hop bite starts off a little slow and then builds quickly and lingers long after swallow.

This is a fantastic and surprisingly drinkable beer. Hoppy but never too bitter. Great citrus notes through and through help make it really refreshing.

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.
