COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The elusive brew is made from pilsner malt and amber malt with an original gravity of 26.5?P, yielding an 11% abv. It's hopped with Warrior and Glacier varieties. Primary fermentation takes place in open vessels using two yeast strains, one American and one English. For added complexity, the beer is conditioned on barrel staves of French Oak for four months before being dry hopped with Glacier at the rate of a half-pound per barrel. This elixir is then blended 50/50 with 90 Minute IPA. After blending, the beer will measure 80 IBU and 10% abv. Bottled in corked bottles through Michael Jackson’s rare beer club by late November 04 and available in 12 ounce full distribution in early January 05.

Finalmente um Dogfish Head que vale a pena. Bom balanco entre maltes e lupulos, alcool e corpo equilibrado.

gyllenbock (7707) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle bought in Hong Kong in November 2015. A bit hazy dark orange with a white head. Aroma of orange, light pineapple, toffee and malt. The body was around medium and the finish medium bitter. A descent one although a bit old.

@ Eddan 15-12-5: Men munnkänsla med lite små toner av apelsin. Aning malt och något trött men ändå rätt ok.

Ok. Decent interesting taste with the oak but too malty for me. Wouldn't seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of my favorites. Strong malty flavor and not too hoppy. Strong like a barleywine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TH28 (379) - - NOV 21, 2015
12oz bottle. 9/2/15 bottle date (72 days old). Appearance: Deep golden orange, clear, with a moderate off white foam head. Nice lacing down the glass. Aroma: Pungent tropical fruit aromas (pineapple, mango, orange) with strong resin and a bit of green apple. Taste: Rich malt sweetness with some breadiness and caramel. Quickly rolls into a bold but balanced bitterness and hop flavors or resin, grass, pineapple, and grapefruit. Leaves a dry tartness. Mouthfeel: Medium body with a low to moderate bitterness. Alcohol warmth is there but well hidden considering the strength. Finish: Dry, sticky resin on the tongue with long lingering bitterness and touch of bready malt. Overall: Really nice complex aroma. Malt character similar to other IIPAs, and the bitterness balances well considering it’s strength. Very drinkable for a beer of this size and intensity.

Would have loved more hop presence in this new barrel aged fad......but still excellent. Old ale, bourbon, oak. Not an ipa.

Bottle. Trembling Madness, York. Hazy, dark orangey amber. Film of sticky, off white head. Big, chewy, barley wine like, orange hoppage. Minty, and herbal. Sticky fruits. Taste is thick, fruity, sweet. Big bitterness. Soft, slick, oily palate. Sweet, woody, chewy, fruity bitter finish. Mega tasty.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle, pours hazy gold, small white head. Aroma is piney hoppy, medium caramel & toffee malt, pineapple. The oak comes through late in the palate, with light bitterness. The texture is resiny, chewy and sticky. For such a hoppy DIPA, not too bitter, all nicely rounded and balanced, very very good, although there is a bit of residual alcohol in the aftertaste.
