Beautiful orange pour with a small, but fluffy white head. Much more complex than one would imagine from such a heavily-hopped brew. Alcohol is well hidden. The oily hops are obviously bitter, but also have a distinct smoky flavor. The hop powerhouse is well complimented by a smooth malt backbone and sweet fruit flavors.

huge fluffy white head that laces well nice carbonation on the glass and a light copper color. Flavor is a big crisp citrus and grass hop the back of the smell was an alcohol and some light carmel. The palate is pretty solid a dry finish w/ a nice body a good light creaminess. The flavor is a great hop blend citrus, grass, something else.. just cut w/ enough malts to keep it from being biting but nicely bitter in the finish. Overall a damn good IIPA.

This is easily one of my five favorite beers. So hoppy but the brilliance is that there are actual flavors here. This beer is quite complex. It not balanced or centrist but it is popping with flavors. You can taste the different notes that hops have to offer. Ahhhh...so good!

Wow---Pours amber with white head. Huge aroma of Hops, pine needles, and citrus. Hops dominate flavor with caramel, pine needles and citrus showing up also. Finishes hoppy with a touch of sweetness (caramel). This beer really displays dogfish signature style with an integrated touch of sweetness blending beautifully with rich hop flavor. Alcohol is totally masked. This is the best crafted brew Iíve ever had.

This is a super 2xIPA!!!!! I was in hop heaven. Itís super hoppy, super balanced and super drinkable!!!!! Only problem is that my distributer canít keep enough in stock. (At $40/case, I wonder why?)

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2006 IBUs live here. Hops driven as the style dictates. No malt to speak of. One sided? Yes without apology - thats a Double. I like their 60 minute where hops dominates but a little more centrist.

Bottle. Poured a golden amber with medium white head. Complex aroma of hops and malt with sweet tone. Full body and flavor with long bitter finish. Very good double IPA.

Bailz316 (228) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2006 Nice gold color with almost no head. High alcohol content is masked beautifully. Good balance between malt and hops. Beer is bold and flavorful, notably citrus, caramel, and pine. Long-lasting bitter finish. Great beer.

Zeswaft (1446) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Surprisingly, there is not as much hop presence as I was expecting. Pours with almost no head and a copper color. There is somewhat of a minute hidden roasted coffee scent. Very rich hop flavor that is not too overpowering and a nice malt balance. It has a sweet citrus taste. There is a minor alcohol burn on the palate. This is an amazing brew. Best IPA Iíve had, probably my new favorite beer. rerate. not that great. kind of alcoholic and not nearly as hoppy as a lot iipaís. On second rerate this is totally inferior to a lot iipas. of course itís not bad but itís nowhere as good.

Wow!! found this at my local liquor store, thought I give it a try. This beer is full of aroma of Citrus and earthy notes. The Smell of hops is abundant, taste of hops, hops and more hops. Citrus flavor with a taste of the forest. YUM
