12 fl ox bottle. Pours slight hazy and golden orange with a huge off-white head. Immediate aroma of grapefruite and pine. Solid caramel malt beneath. Flavour is perfectly sweetend with a nice set of fruite note on top, some mild spices appear here and there and there is a little edge og liqourice before the finish. The finish holds clear notes of alcohol, warming, a solid dry bitterness and a lingering fruityness.

[Cask at GBBF 2004] A hazy amber beer with no head. The aroma is grassy and hoppy, while the flavor is sweet with primary notes of alcohol as well as lighter notes of hops leading to a very dry end.

Bottled. Orange colour, mediumsized beige foamy head. Wonderful fruitish hoppy aroma with hints of caramel and pumpkin. Rye, honey, caramel, malt and barley in flavour, which all peaks in a nice smooth hoppy finish. Very pleasant and drinkable!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish amber. Flowery, citrusy nose. Full bodied, seet, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, and a late bitterness that just keeps growing. Despite it’s bizarre hop rate it somehow manages to remind somewhat balanced. As usual a very interesting brew from Dogfish Head.

Beautiful copper-amber color, creamy head. Wonderful hop aroma. Explosive; I like it because the maltiness can somehow support the huge hopping. And the fruity character in the nose and palate. Excellent I<sup>2</sup>PA. Thanks Philippe (Bov) for sharing this bottle.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2012 4th May 2008.
Very hoppy beer but well balanced by lot of malt. As undertone of fruitiness adds complexity. Smooth and silky. Finishes bitter, slightly fruity and dry. Original rating 3.8.

Bottle in hotel before Norway trip. Clear gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth softish palate with mild fine carbonation. Nice hops. Floral start before deep rich citrus kicks in but somehow it’s still light and so drinkable. Some hop bitterness comes through but it’s balanced by the lovely malty sweetness. Finishes semi dry with some minerals. Immensely drinkable IIPA. Lovely.
