Poured from 22 oz bottle into a Nonic.
Appearance- Pours a crystal clear gold color with some Orangish highlights. 1 inch white head fades quickly.
Smell- Pure pine needles and grapefruits. Smells awesome. No spices of note in the nose.
Taste- Fruitiness is foremost in this one. Not as bitter as most IIPA's. Kinda sweet. Really balanced flavor. I love it. Has a great little bite to it at the end.
Mouthfeel- Crisp and tingly at first and then creamy when you swallow. Leaves the tongue feeling tingly.
Drinkability- Awesome, pure awesome. I could drink these all night. The 8% is right at that level where you can have a couple pints and get a nice buzz from it.
Overall- I think this is a very underrate IIPA. Not nearly as hyped as some of it's contemporaries, but it has outshined many of them. I would love to have these in my fridge at all times.

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.
