3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a 1/2 cm head. Lots of lively carbonation present. Soft floral hops on the nose, grassy, floral and fruity. Flavor is rather subdued with a general hop bitterness against a lightly malty background. The hops in this are a bit muddled together with a very one dimensional character to them, just kind of bland. Tastes of grapefruit, citrus, and caramel malt. Mouthfeel is a little over carbonated for my taste, with medium body. Not bad, but a far cry from some of the awesome stuff these guys make.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber with a white head. Aroma is of hops and a hint of pines. Flavor is of hops and a little bit sweet. It could stand to have a little bit more hops but overall this is a great beer that I will enjoy again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice golden amber. Head vanishes and leaves a nice halo around the rim. Nose is mildly hoppy with that strange smokey musty dogfish funk with subtle hints of pine. Palate is sweet on the tip and bitter on the back edges with a nice thick mouthfeel. As usual dogfish gives me an ipa I could drink all day.

Golden color, small white head. Hoppy, flowery, a bit smokey nose. Sweetish, hoppy flowery, balanced IPA. Long flowery hoppy aftertaste, not too hoppy, so quite enjoyable as such.

Bottle: Nice copper color with an average white head that lasted but left no lacing. Great hop smells of lemon, grapefruit, and flowers. Light sniff of malts. Great IPA taste with grapefruit, spice, and fruits that left a nice bitter tingle. Smooth medium body.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled@Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) slightly hazy, light amber color with a small head. Lightly vinous, brandy-aromatic-flowery-hoppy aroma with toffee notes. Aromatic-hoppy toffee flavor with a quite long, bittersweet finish. Some alcohol present, but not as warming as 90 min. Very well balanced like the 90 - but much lighter in every way.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2005 Bottle: It didnt look bad but it poured a foamy head that took me at least fifteen mins just to get poured into glass. I was nice and gave the appearence a 2. Aroma isnt spectacular but nice. Has citrus/fruit and grassy aromas. The flavors are very much fruity/citrusy way more than I was expecting. Also some floral aspects and some hops.
