Another I have been waiting to try, It did not dissapoint. The aroma was complex, it seemed to go in several directions but the taste was what I expected. It was an explosion of hoppiness that quickly balances out and makes you want more. It is another super brew from dogfish Head.

Bottle into glass. Interesting earthy aromas. Pours a light red. Medium bitter. More malty than most IPAs.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear orange/amber. Two finger light tan head that retains and laces nicely. Aroma of caramel, pine and lemon. Taste is assertively bitter, but has a a nice malty sweetness to balance. Medium-full bodied, moderate carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes bitter. Tasting notes of grapefruit, tangerine, spruce, resin, toffee, lemon peel, cherry and slight alcohol. This is one of the best IPA’s out there, I thought I rated this one, but I guess not!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Faut avouer que c’est bien foutu. Nez très caramel quasi barley wine balancé par des notes légèrement agrumes.
Bouche très ronde, attaque caramel et notes agrumes (orange) très présentes.
Pas une grande palette aromatique mais du goût et un bel équilibre. Potentiellement écoeurante.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
