4.03/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Randomly just picked this up today. Decided that I might as well review some ‘classic’ beers that I’ve tried many times but never reviewed. Drank from my Surlyfest mug while watching Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland.

Appearance- Pours a crystal clear light orange yellowish with a fairly small foamy white cap (even from an aggressive pour). A decent collar and spotty cap remains but no lacing at all.
Smell- Very fruity and super nice. Plenty of tropical fruits right from the start with loads of mango and pineapple. That ever so present grapefruit is right there as well. A bit more of a crystal malt sweetness sneaks in than I’m used to in these big tropical IPA’s but different is good! Touches of caramel and a lightly toasted malts.
Taste- I think the nose has more of a hoppy tropical fruitiness than the taste does. Starts with a bitter bite and a surprising amount of alcohol. Not enough to ruin the beer but more than I like in my IPA’s. Tons of grapefruit pith as the raw bitterness is really potent. Touches of mango and pineapple do sneak in though (especially in the aftertaste) but for the most part I just get that grapefruit. Enough malt sweetness in the flavor to cut the bitter but definitely not as much caramel as the nose led me to believe. The finish is clean with a touch of alcohol and a nice lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Nice full body with a light clean bite of carbonation. Somewhat dry too with a fair amount of warming.
Drinkability- So after reading the label I see this is all hop oils/hop extracts. I think that probably explains the raw sort of hop bitterness that seems to be sort of one dimensional. Saying that though, the beer is still really tasty. I wish the booze was toned down a touch but otherwise I enjoyed the shit out of this beer. Definitely a great brew for $5!

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.
