3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle is clear orange with white head that stays pretty well, some bigger bubbles but nice looking. Aroma brings notes of lemon, orange and some slight tangerine, hints of biscuit and some slight spice in there as well. A bit one-dimensional but it smells pretty good. Taste is big lemony, orange, some tangerine, more lemon and some sweet biscuit malt, going into a slightly bitter but a touch alcoholic finish. Not the best DIPA, but still nice flavors and drinks smooth.

Pours a nice amber color, almost copper. Citrus lemony aroma, creamy and tangy with a bitter finish. Delicious! grass, citrus, lemon, orange, hops and more hops.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml, bottled on 10/22/2011 and consumed within the month. The pour yields a mostly clear, very lightly hazy dark orange-golden amber body. A thick head of off-white to light tan froth slowly settles to a low, bubbly blanket, leaving sticky clumps and splotches of lacing all over the glass. The nose booms with pithy, dry, biting lemon sharpness, touching also on floral orange blossom notes that seem overly soapy. Alcohol is prominent, almost overpowering, mixing with the lemon to suggest of boozy limoncello liquor. The hops dominate the underlying crackery, toasty-sweet malt. Flavors are just as out of balance, showing loads of pithy, bitter, biting lemon hops up front, followed by boozy, under-attenuated, bready/crackery malt. Alcohol is astringent and hot. This somehow seems stale after only 3 weeks in the bottle. The palate is cloying, syrupy, and just downright unpleasant. Ugh. This one was a struggle...not to mention a complete letdown.

Bomber: pours clear amber with a nice lasting head. Very hoppy with a slight lemon taste to it. You can also taste the alcohol in it a bit. still pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an attractive orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is alcohol and lemon pledge. The taste is super alcoholic, slightly bitter, a little taste of lemon. I don’t like it. The lemon/ipa thing doesn’t work at all for me. The hop aroma is completley hidden by alcohol as is the flavor. Not very enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An okay beer, but definitely not a favorite from Dogfish. There is an abundance of earthy and floral hops that are complimented by citrus notes. This is followed quickly by a surprising amount of malt flavor that presents itself as syrupy sweet and ends up overwhelming this beer. Not bad, but far from a favorite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the Brewpub, Rehoboth Beach De-Golden/Orange pour w/a slight off white head. Strong hop aroma. Strong flavors of citrus hop, pine tar, pitch....this is a hop bomb. Very one dimentional, too much so for me. I’d much prefer a 60 or 90 Minute....even a 120! Long citrus finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orange colour with a short lived white head. Aroma is hops with some lemon and other citrusy fruit. Taste is lemon rind and caramel leading to a hefty bitter finish with nice warming alcohol. A really nice and unusual IPA.

Pours a nice dark amber color, has a nice citrus scent and taste that hides the biterness well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL thanks to the Tally beer crew at Proof. The pour is a clear yellow with a weak yellowish head. Nose is citrus hoppy, sticky kumquats, big cheesecloth. Taste is spicy, sticky, boozy, with overripe kumquats. Sticky jackfruit and obvious alcohol presence. Not bad. Quite boozy overall though.
