3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Light orange color. Very clear. Medium head. Good retention. Aroma was crisp, fresh citrus with grassy notes; some nice caramel malt with some biscuity overtones. Flavor was well balanced and crisp. Middle-of-the-road bitterness. bitterness balanced by caramel. Mouthfeel was soft with low carbonation. Very good, but more of a session beer. This is not a put down. I have had too many "extreme" beers that fill the novelty niche. This one is comfortable and drinkable. Can I have another, please.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice golden amber colour with a thick and crisp white head. Huge nose. Big stone fruit hop aromas with pine to boot, this smells intense. A really well balanced beer, punchy citrus and pine up front, held down by a wonderfully deep malt backbone. Quite a creamy texture and adequately carbonated, well rounded out; an excellent drop.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the classic American IPAs and a Dogfish Head staple. Bottle at GBBF. Cobweb lacing, snow white, thin, long lasting, off-white head over an initially hazy, deep golden coloured beer with quiet sparkling. Aroma of yellow grapefruit, lemon peel, white bread, pineapple, hints of spruce and field flowers; less aromatically hoppy than I had expected (and hoped). Crisp, clean, smooth taste, fizzy to the point of being overcarbonated for the style, bit bready with hints of apple peel, refreshing with a smooth body and some pale male sweetishness, bit grainy too; long, drying, hop bitter finish, a bit minerally and less citrussy or piney than I thought it was going to be. Perhaps I need a fresher bottle, but in this form this was a bit of a disappointment, honestly speaking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a tiny plastic glass in my hotel room - it was all I had available. Nice looking IPA - tangerine coloured with a big white head and good lacing - even in this drinking vessel! Body a touch on the light side but nice and frothy. Nose has pine, orange, pineapple, mango and apricot. In the mouth the pine becomes almost minty but it blends well with the citrus flavours. To be honest I wasn’t too sure when I first tasted this but it has grown on me over the course of the bottle.

Bottle, medium amber beer, decent white head that faded slowly. Aroma is malt, spruce, and citrus. Taste is malt, orange and grapefruit juice, lemon, spruce, and citrus rind bitter finish. Palate is light, carbonation moderate and fine.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly hazy golden orange, brief head. Standout aroma - orange, tropical, faint bread. Nice effervescence on the tongue. Orange citrus, resin, subtle malt background. Crisp, refreshing, and chewy - great body and mouth feel. They call it their session IPA... its one of the better sessions.
