When all is said and done this is a well made slightly off the intended mark IPA. Looks and smell delicious. beautiful hazy orange/amber color and nice nose. Taste is unusual as the hops are an weird mixture. Not a total miss as the glass empties my score lifts. weird but good collaboration.

Au nez, les houblons sont présents. Le goût ressemble vraiment gros a la 90 min de Dogfish. La bière a un beau sucre résiduel. La finale est assez longue, sucré et agréable.

Another good, unique beer from Dogfish Head. Pours a basic clear orange with a white head. Smells like an orange creamsicle, with some rose. Taste is a bit hoppy to start, then becomes very creamy and sweet, with some vanilla. Very well balanced. Had on tap at Billcos.

P: Slightly fragmented but clear golden copper body. Creamy wet head that laces the edges gracefully.
S: Fresh sun kist grains, wheat, barley, orange oil, lemon and lime leaves. Clean and crisp.
T/M: Toasted caramel malt forward, toast with honey, lime, lemon grass and fresh grains left in the sun. Bitterness presents itself in a stable citrus assortment creeping in toward the finish with an ever evolving profile. Timid persimmon bitters in the back of the throat. Creamy medium feel with a dash of perfected carbonation to create a creamy smooth pull.
O: The aroma is a powerful beast of beauty and grace. Smooth and relaxing flavors massage the palate and coax it into submission. The profile changes from sweet sunny malt to a assertive yet refined bitter dragon that creeps in towards the end. Enjoy!

Honey golden with a huge foamy head. Aroma sweet with lots of floral hops and a touch of alcohol. Flavor is earthy and bitter with a hit of grainy honey. Finishes very bitter.

The aroma is citrus, caramel, wine-like. The appearance is orange, clear, white head. The flavor is citrus, sweet fruit. The finish is citrus, grapefruit. Nicely done.

Bottled sample from Specks in San Antonio. Could be one of the best beers I have ever had. Pours golden with medium head. Great aroma, and very complex taste. Loved it

Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Earthy hops, medium malty sweetness, and a floral and earthy bitter finish. Not that good.

0.75l bottle shared with Inbreak @ the Ginger Man NYC. A light blurry golden one this and it has a nice medium sized just off-white light bubbly top. Not to extreme on the nose but it get a nice strawberry sweetness with green hops, pine cones, quite fresh on the nose, perhaps a bit cold but fresh. Nice light hoppy flavors. It has a oily mouthfeel and a below average carbonation level. Light fruity, kinda blend in a way. Some white fruit meat with a little bit of something spicy. Tangerines are mentioned and I agree. Not bad in any way, but perhaps a bit mellow? Had hoped or at least expected something a bit more from these two great brewers. 19.06.2013
