3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark amber color with a moderate white head. Aroma is very citrusy with a slight lemon smell. Taste is bitter throughout with a slight alcohol burn at the end. Overall a very good beer as most DFH beers are but I have to admit that my favorite IPA from them is still Burton Baton.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear chestnut with an inch of off-white head. Aroma is mildly lemony, and taste is like a gin and tonic, with dark alcoholic citrus pith, and oxidized english yeast into the finish. $10/750

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brew pours a mild golden amber color with a fast head that settles softly to a thin silky canopy and a fluffy lace. Smells GREEN. Green grapes, green stems, green alcohol. Medium full nectar with good carbonation. A rich malty brew, mildly sweet with a strong green profile. There’s a touch of sea salt and fresh white confection. Seriously, this brew is so out of whack. I fell like I’m sucking on a tar bag in a baseball dugout. I got a mouth full of my lawn mowers grass catcher. Cold or room, this brew is not worthy. Knowing the constituents, the lemon has a negative reaction to the beer as a whole and turns it green.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light brown, with a nice off-white head. Very nice aroma with loads of citrus hops, mild alcohol, and piney grapefruit. Flavor is very bitter, with citrus hops, alcohol, and mildly malty (loads of flavor). Finishes VERY dry and a slight alcohol burn! I like.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled off white, long lived, head with some lacing, over a slightly hazy amber (SRM 9) body....nose is pine, grapefruit, toffee/caramel, pineapple.....taste is grapefruit peel, resin, toffee/caramel, light pineapple finishing with lingering lightly astringent, pine and grapefruit bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol heat present, carbonation adds a lovely creaminess. This meets the style, and is quite typical for an I/DIPA. The lemon adds to the citrus qualia, but to me at least, does not add subtlety to the grapefruit layers of the centennial. This is another of the craft beers that must be served slightly warmer than typically done in order to appreciate its true brilliance. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Beautiful Clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Amazing citrus aroma and taste of orange lemon and grapefruit with an exceptionally well balanced bitterness against the sweet caramel and candied lemon peel flavors. Alcohol un-noticeable minus some slight warmth on the back end. Nice creamy palate that accentuates the citrus flavors and hints at vanilla. This is as close to perfection as IPAs get!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
24 karat with a nice tangerine hue and thin ring for a head. Spatters of lacing inside the glass. Nose of mild citrus, caramel, and light pine. Flavor also is subtle with grapefruit, lemongrass, and sharp pith. Still mediocre...

Nice bottle to honor Robert Johnson and a fine brew. Has plenty of flavor, with a nice lemon, hoppy taste and a bitter, long finish. Another great beer from Dogfish

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 oz. from Chuck’s. Yellow-orange in color and cloudy due to suspended yeast particles. Slight citrus--though I hesitate to say lemon--aroma. Wonderfully full malt tempers the 100 IBUs. Big full body with a satisfying finish. The only reason I didn’t rate it higher is because I’m not sure how this differs from the 90 Minute IPA. $14 a bottle? Probably not again.
