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

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.

This is one of my favorites. Strong malty flavor and not too hoppy. Strong like a barleywine.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
