Poured from a 750ml bomber into a pint glass, bottle courtesy of Long813. Shared with my best friend/blossoming BA, visiting town for the weekend.
Pored a clear, pale golden orange with a thick soapy and sticky offwhite head. Good retention, minimal lacing (bottle is a couple months old from my interpretation of the Julian dating). Aroma is very citrus and pine oriented, with some of the sweet malt detectable here. Lots of tropical fruits are here, I got some pineapple, mango and peach, but the list goes on. Taste is awesome, starts initially with the sweet and solid malt base upfront, gradually fading into a hop attack, where the flavour opens up and matches the aroma in terms of the tropical bouquet. Just so goddamn tasty. Mouthfeel is great; full, medium to low carbonation and a LONG lasting bitter and dry finish. By long, I mean that from the point I left my girlfriend's house (where we imbibed) to the point I got home, over an hour later this bitter, dry cottonmouth effect lingered. Don't mind this at all, and in fact was the first time I've ever experienced this effect. ABV is undetectable and goes down super smooth. Great stuff here.

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.
