From a 22 oz bottle. Pours a tacky, stingy yellow color, highly opaque and cloudy. Thin white head that relaxes on top, leaving a respectable trace of lacing through the top half of the beer. Nose hits with a huge assortment of pungent hops and intense grapefruits. Pineapples and mangoes are swarming around as well. First sip - slightly dank, heavy amount of oily resins and pungent hops - both bitter and sweet, a cornucopia of citruses, fruits, and pines. Malt overtones in the finish help to balance out the ending, but this beer was meant to be bitter and hoppy. Heavy on the mouth, sticky, slick, and held up by a medium amount of carbonation.
Seriously great beer. Amazing flavor, so full of pines, resins, and hops that are counterbalanced perfectly by the fruity citrus, grapefruit, and pineapple flavors which ironically come from the hops as well. Slight malt finish puts a nice close on things. I recommend this beer to everybody.

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.
