This is a very good IPA. It has an insane amount of hops, but there’s enough barely to prevent it from being overpowering. The weakest attribute is the appearance (the head was a disappointment), but who drinks a fine IPA because it looks good?

The aroma is like that of a Christmas tree. In a snifter the liquid brew reflects the light like a copper ornament ready for that tree I smell. The flavor is an amazing piney taste upfront, followed by a bitterness. The mouth feel is smooth and easy. Overall this is a perfect DPA. I tip my hat to you DFH.

This beer is quite tasty. The aroma is a very very strong grapefruit, and the flavor has no choice but be exactly the same. I’m not a fan of grapefruit, but for whatever reason enjoy this beer. The only problem I have with this beer is that it may be too much. The flavor is borderline overpowering. I will drink this again, but only when I’m really in the mood for something with a very strong citrus flavor.

One of the best I’ve had. Considering the alcohol content, it’s very mild. Very smooth, though I was disappointed by the complete absence of a head. It’s color is beautiful, and it is very rich, especially taking into account how easy it goes down. The flavor is complex. I would definitely reccomend it.

Pours a deep honey amber with a 1/2 finger soapy white head. Decent lacing. Smells of strong floral hops and sweet malt. Dry hopping is pretty obvious here. Flavor is hops up front (duh) with a pleasant malty sweetness. This is more balanced than I had expected. Medium mouthfeel that coats the tongue and finishes sweet with a teeny bitter kick. The high abv% is expertly hidden here. This would be the perfect accompaniment for a nice bloody steak. Awesome.

First beer from dogfish head. dam dog this fish got some head yallz. Smells really great i was expecting more hops from this. Not that it wasn’t good but a lot of malt covers the hops im used to from a dipa. Still very smooth and good definite good stuff

A very nice color and pour. The head is short lasting but the taste is what makes this IPA. Excellent overall. Expensive, but worth it.

One of my favorite beers. Notes of grapefruit and other citrus. A total winner.

There is a nice amber color and fluffy white head with a floral hop aroma. In the taste there are apricots and more floral hop notes. The body is medium but balanced nicely. A very pronounced bitterness resonates on the tip of the tongue, but it goes down nice and smooth. Overall I think this beer is wonderfully balanced and a great beer. A nice slight alcoholic warmth, and a slightly dry, but not overly so finish are very welcome. As it warms up the sweet malt and slight breadyness are welcome.
