Again one of my top 10’s. You can’t go wrong with a Dogfish IPA. Great beer for summer and BBQ or just alone in a frosty mug.

mateuszk (2044) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle. Orange in colour, nice white head. Aroma of biscuits and flowers. In taste quite malty with huge hoppy, citrusy counter. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry and bitter finish. Nice beer, nothing shocking but Europe do not get fresh bottles, very fresh probably would be much better.

Rex_Remes (128) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2016
(12oz bottle, Beijing) AROMA: sour, yoghurt, sweet hops, sweet corn/grain, barbecue sauce, smoke, dried fruit, touch of tobacco. APPEARANCE: medium amber orange, a bit cloudy, creamy off-white head, quite sticky. TASTE: smooth and kinda fruity upfront, followed by a burst of flavor and a fair amount of bitterness, can taste the alcohol but not in a bad way (seems in balance with the flavor and mouth feel ... I’m guessing as this breaths a bit, it will get better), different flavor (hops?) than most typical IPAs, some caramel, dried fruits, pine, almost a liqueur taste to it, so it is sweet-sour-then dry-with residual sweetness under the tongue. PALATE: Full bodied, oily, complex, long bitter finish. OVERALL: A very good beer and a good IPA that does not only focus on hops. It is a well-rounded IPA with interesting sweet and sour notes, so some hardcore IPA fans may not rave over it. I like the complexity and interesting balance of unique flavors. As I said, a very good beer, and if they could find the middle ground between this and a standard over-hopped IPA, they would have the perfect beer.

ALIBALI (687) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2016
Immer noch britisch und pragisch, genau wie das 60 minute. Wieder vom Hahn in der STONE BREWERY BERLIN vernascht. Probierschluck for free ☺ . Das Ganze wieder mit allem erdig würzigen Charmebrocken gerüstet die wir so sehr lieben. Allerdings wird hier noch eine gekonnt eingesetzt Süße reingefeuert. Muss ich noch mal aus der Bulle probieren.

hartmat (13) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2016
turning it up to 11. transition from the 60 minute, and not disappointed. Exceptionally easy to drink with such a high abv. classic IPA profile.

GlennHendry (288) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Smells big - dark fruit and pine - and tastes like a big fella as well. More dark fruit and pine, with ripe orange and loads of sweet malts. Big malt bill with booze.

Samtzu (190) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 15, 2016
330ml bottle. A very different style of IPA. Shying away from the huge hop notes we see a lot of, this is leaning more on the malts. Sure there are hops there but they are an underlying note. Full body with an exceptional velvet mouth feel covers the alcohol perfectly. Well and truly one of the best IPA’s even if it is different to the others.

onmysofa (1) - FRANCE - SEP 8, 2016 does not count
Bière achetée 7€ dans une cave à bière connue de Paris (20e Arr), je m’attendais à avoir de l’amertume comme toute Imperial IPA (surtout américaine), et quelle ne fut pas ma déception en goûtant cette bière de la mythique brasserie Dogfish Head. Rien, pas d’amertume, juste une belle couleur cuivrée. Rien même d’une simple IPA. Est-ce la faute au temps passé en cave ? Ma déception ne saurait rester silencieuse et je me dois vous en faire part. Bad mood.

Well balanced. Aroma: hops, lemon. Golden brown color with medium white head. Taste: bitter, strong alcohol, bread, fruit. Long bitter dry finish.

beerplace (769) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2016
12 oz bottle from Elizabeth Station. Bottled 08-Jul-2016. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma is malty and some European hops. Same character taste with citrusy hoppy bitterness and boozy notes. Good beer, but not so good as lots of other American IIPAs.

Bosbouw (2662) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2016
Heldere koper kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig zoetig, mout, suiker. Smaakt zoetig, kruiden, hop. Aparte smaak. Redelijk zwaar en zoetig. Droge en late bittere afdronk.
