On draught at the pub in Gaithersburg. Reddish amber color with thin fine head. Mild aroma but tough to tell more due to the delicious smell of ribs emanating from the kitchen. Taste is bright and hoppy with notes of grass, lemon, and peach, some almond taste as well. Finish is tart and the lemon cones through more but pretty nicely balanced. Tasty and mildly adventurous Dogfish offering.

Pours amber and slightly hazy with a white, lasting head. Smells metallic, soapy, some citrus, sage. Tastes of strong citrus, spicy with some peppery notes and a honey hint on the finish.

Hoppy aroma with some lemon. Golden amber pour with an off-white head. Superb lacing. Hops, lemon, and alcohol make up a sophisticated flavor. Great beer!

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 Draft at the Birch. Nice bright honey color with a nice head. The aroma is subdued if a bit citrusy. But the flavor is grand, yet mellow at the same time. Tangy with just a hint of lemon, the 10% is well hidden in a quaffable, light body. Delish. (#4109, 5/21/2011).

On tap at urbn pizza for Taphunter 2nd anniversary party. Nose pinetree and bit of bubblegum hoppiness. Taste big pinetree with gooey sweet pine back. Amazingly itís not too far over the top. Sharp alcohol in there you bet! 10oz pour is plenty.

Bottle shared by atom. Pour is hazy copper orange with a nice large white head. Nice citrusy aroma with lemon peels being up front. Somewhat reminds me of sour lemon flavored candies. Taste is slightly sweet like candied citrus, with grapefruit and lemon citrus, and a strong bitterness towards the finish. A lemon sour flavor lingers for a while and causes my mouth to water. This is pretty slick on the tongue, but it coats the sides and roof of my mouth which is a little off putting for me with this sour lemon flavor lingering. Pretty solid though.

Bottle pours bubbly cloudy amber/orange with a large khaki head. Aroma of citrus, floral, malt, honey, lemon, and apricot. Taste is very sweet citrus and caramel slight biter pine with lemon peel on the finish. Alcohol is very present on the finish lots of malt throughout. Not bad but not overly impressed.

Draft on tap at Mariaís (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice decent hazed golden orange pour, good glow with a decent sized offwhite head atop, laces small. Aromas are a moderate citrus hop presence, lemons and grapefruit, grass and florals mesh with bready malts, some sweeter caramel, toast. Hop presence grows as it warms. Initial is medium bodied, dusty lemons, bread dough, fairly sweet malt complex with a moderate hopping, florals, grass, a touch of perfume. Hops grow, but still quite sweet. Perfumey florals, some resinous pine works in. Fresh, without the most complex hop profile in the world. Not a bad DIPA, with very floral and piney hops, not the most citrusy. Finish is dry, bitter, fruity elements throw some pear, booze, and pineapple. A touch hot. A solid DIPA, but the hop profile isnít for me. And the nose is sweet, almost apple juicey. Strange.
