From the bottle. Poured a orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some nice pine notes, with a touch of malt character and a touch of citrus. Flavor was some malt, pine, and citrus notes. Flavor was pretty tasty. Interesting hop profile in this one.

this is a miss for me, when I spend $15 for a bottle I want to be wowed, this is not meeting that standard. Just doesn’t come together well, way too bitter, not enough flavor, just not tasting good on the palate. I may write them as a dissatisfied customer.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of foamy with a frothy top white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a very good lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty and orange peel. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of orange peel citrus crisp hops and bread dough. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Churchkey. Mostly clear orange pour, smallish bubbly white head. Nose and flavor bring clementine, lemongrass, and hints of pine, but nothing too distinctive. Nice flavorful IPA with good malt balance and above average body, but definitely not a stunner.

750 from Capone’s. Poured dark straw with off-white head. Nose was yeasty caramel malt, hops, mild fruit. Tasted like a Belgian IPA to me , with yeasty caramel malt up front, and tart mildly fruity hops at mid-palate.

Beautiful golden beer with perfect head. Very clean and crisp as expected from Dogfish and Sierra Nevada. Nose is very sweet, almost like cotton candy with sweet melon dominating. Melon is so strong in the flavor, I didn't even know this was possible in a beer. I guess that's the #644 hops. It begins almost sickeningly sweet, gushing with melon flavor, but crisp hop bite and more typical citrus flavors from the Bravo come through just in time to finish it off. Sweet melon notes linger for a while. Very much worth a try for how unique it is although a too sweet for me to keep coming back to. I'll be very interested to see what can be done with #644 in the future.
