Very hoppy, smelled as such. Malty and pine notes as well. On tap. Easier drinker than most DIPAs. Very solid, as good as you hear about. Not the biggest fan of Dogfish Head but this is a good one. Enjoyed it.

This is a great beer...probably one of the best IPAs out there. Lots of hops that follow to the aftertaste-- also have some malty aromas.

This was another old-school beer that got me into IPAs and DIPAs. I had rated this higher originally on beerpal, but downgraded a few points after a few more samples over the years. Still a solid beer for this style, just have found some more well-balanced ones out there.

This beer did not tickle my palate it started off watery and flushed my touge with massive amounts of pine note which mad it wicked bitter. There are much better ipas out there

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bottle. Golden color with a great bitter hop and citrusy. Very smooth. I agree with the hype that it is one of the best IPA’s.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Craft Beer Cellar. Poured into a Shaker, a hazy orange colour with a finger’s worth of head. Aromas of pine and citrus, like any good AIPA. Carbonation was somewhat softer than I expect for an IPA. Taste was somewhat sweeter and maltier than other imperials I’ve had recently - I actually like this in an IPA. Other than the lack of fizz, I couldn’t find much to dislike about this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sample at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear golden with small off-white head. Very malty aroma, notes of toffee and caramel with some prune and hint of hops. Very sweet and malty flavor, sugary, notes of raisin, moderate hoppy bitterness, some citrus and caramel notes. Soft carbonation, medium to full-bodied. Not so fresh and quite hard to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
oured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a citrus aroma along with a whiff of alcohol.
Appearance- Pours a clear amber color with almost zero head.
Taste- Hops and malt with an alcohol bite.
Palate- A heavy bodied brew with mild carbonation. This beer has a very dry finish.
Overall- A really good beer but I didn’t enjoy it enough to give it world class ratings.
