StueyD (1122) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
A mid to dark amber brown coloured beer with a thick and frothy white head. A strong fresh hop aroma, grassy and citrusy. Dry mouthfeel. A strong hop taste, pithy grapefruit and lemon, plus a piney, grassy element. Later, there is a mild hint of malt. The hop flavour lasts into a lingering finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg in the Flask NW3. Dogfish Head, on tap in Hampstead, who’d have thought it? Exciting! Quite brown in colour, doesn’t smell that hoppy. Initially quite malty, some English hop. There must be a bit more, surely...maybe it’s too cold, maybe maybe maybe. No, it tastes like a slightly cleaner and marginally hoppier version of Bombardier. It was basically the best pint of Bombardier I’ve had. Very quaffable, balanced, but don’t expect Dogfish fireworks. So not that exciting after all...

Una IPA a basso contenuto alcolico? Forse una bitter. Pulita, con un certo odore caramellato e un buon amaro persistente alla fine.

Bottle from Tesco. It’s a Bitter. Ropey, dull. Tangy sweet/sour malts and a rucksack of twigs.

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Enniskillen [160714]
Copper amber, clear, frothy white head
Aroma - slight citrus lemon, slight caramel, very little aroma
Taste of soft citrus lemon, soft caramel, slight toasted malt, dab of grassy hop, much lower amount of hops then expected, very dull
Palate - soft carb, medium body, fairly oily. Finish as main flavour, slightly gooey finish
Overall - very lackluster, not craft beer, not an IPA, ordinary supermarket tosh, adding Dogfish Head label is all marketing bullshit

RichardW (1464) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
330ml bottle, Tesco. Saw the Dogfish Head logo and got a little bit excited. In reality, its very English and brown, with merely a trace of fruity hops lurking in the background. The Wells characteristics dominate this beer and there’s a small metallic tang in the finish which doesn’t really help

ciaranc (804) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 8, 2014
330 ml bottle from drinkstore. Clear copper, foamy off white head. Dusty malt nose, very English. Flavour is a traditional English IPA with a touch more bitterness maybe. Very light in body, very low carbonation. Short finish. Ok, not much going on.

dinkle50 (943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Reddish clear color with a single finger head. Creamy looking head. Aroma of flowers and light grain. Taste is mild. Nice and balanced. Grain, flowers and a light bitterness. Very easy drinking. Palate is a little light.

330ml bottle@Cimmeria, Oviedo. 04-07-2014.
BBD: 15/02/15.
In short: a fruity pale ale.
Pours quite clear light amber, with some off white head. Short head retention, poor lacinf. Malty, fruity, subtle roasty aromas. Light to medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is smooth, fruity, citrusy,peachy, light bitterness. Enjoyable.

Pint at the Albion London. Ok aroma. Sweet. Pine, light orange. Clean brownish orange color. Good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body creamy smooth mouthfeel. Bitter dry finish. Its ok. Flavor best part for me. Aroma tad mellowed. Nothing to scream about. Nothing to offend.
