4.33/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into my guinness 20 oz glass, no idea when this was bottled...there is no date listed on the bottle
A-pale orange color with a small ½ inch head
S- sweet pale malt, flowery and fruity (citrus) hops
T- very flowery, earthy, oily hops with a subtle citrus fruit taste. Being an 8% alcohol beer there is a nice sweet pale malt backing that provides decent balance but the hops still shine through in the forefront like a good DIPA should. Great hop flavor. Not much bitterness until the end...just a lingering dry bitterness in the back of the mouth. Alcohol is very well hidden. Great flavor with not too much bitterness. I love this dipa...I assume 102 ibus mostly come from the flavoring hops
M- smooth creamy mouthfeel from the large amount of pale malt with a nice crisp finish
D- very drinkable, could drink this all day...I have to resist from pounding the whole thing in one sip

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.
