Citrus aroma. Dark orange color. Bit of lace for attractiveness. Hop attack on tongue and bitterness on palate. Unique mellower finish, after all those bubbles.

Poured orange/yellow with minor head. Had a medium grapefruit aroma. The taste was defintely grapefruit with a good amount of hops and a slight alcohol burn, much less so than the 120. Aftertaste had some spice in it as well.

On tap at "Big City" in Allston, MA. Heavy and bold. A mix of cream and a dash of spice. Feels heavy in the glass, and has minimal froth. Donít expect the beer to jump at you extrovertedly; this is one that seeps down into your corpus.

Great beer! Hops, hops, and more hops. Has an amber like color, with a little head. There is a hint citrus and a lot of hops. One of the best IPAís I have ever tasted.

Art of Beer Festival 2004: Has a nice amber color and a tan head. Smell is of hops all the way. Taste is syrupy/sweet and finishes with a strong hop bitterness. Overall another fine uber-IPA from Dogfish.

Great pour right out of the bottle - fast fizzing bubbles and a thick head. Delicious hop aroma is readily apparent. The high alcohol content is surprisingly helpful because of the complex flavors that reach the back of the mouth near the end.

This is certainly the best IPA I have ever had, and I have had some pretty damn good ones. It just barely squeezes by stoneís IPA. This may sound wierd and sorry for using the reference, but the aroma very much reminded me of really dank pot. This beer has a great hoppy flavor that doesnít come out as overly bitter. Also, nice citrus sweetness that is common with IPAs. Everything blends together very well. If you can get this beer, definitly give it a shot!
