Rhizing Bines is a collaborative IPA using the best of both coasts: Carolina-grown red fife wheat and Dogfish Headís continual-hopping from the East and Sierra Nevadaís estate-grown caramel malt and Torpedo dry-hopping from the west.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Fiery golden, slight haze and sediment, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Somewhat of a musty and pale fruit hop aroma.   Somewhat strange.   Doesnít seem like an IIPA, not that strong in hop, malt, or alcohol.   Barely an IPA in my book.   Sweet, a little mealy towards the end.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Musty and barnish hoppy finish.   This was really weird, very much like an aged IIPA, but I have had this only for 5 months.   Not a bright or sharp example, muted, and even then not all that hoppy or malty.   Its an odd duck.   More like an IPA if anything.   Musty, hoppy but not biting, seems a bit stale overall.   Donít detect the 8% ABV at all, which is nice.   Pretty boring overall, yet without any flaws.   Just tastes... well... old.

Yet another old IPA from the Millvale beer festival. Pathetic. I can't believe they charge money to dump old product. Malt bomb.

Pours a beautiful clean golden color with a dence white head the dissipates reasonably fast. Smell is indicative of Dogfish Headís well documented citrusy hops. The initial flavor is quite smooth but some what bland and for what I would expect for a dogfish IPA. For a collaboration beer between dogfish and Sierra I would expect a much bolder flavor. All the typical dogfish IPA flavor is there but but far to muted.

nimbleprop (5417) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2013
750ml bottle pours a slightly hazy, yellowy orange with some thin, creamy, white head. Nose of tropical fruit, some orange and grapefruit, a little birch, malty and a little floral too. Flavor is bitter, grapefruit zest, papaya, some pineapple juice, again an earthy birch-ness lurking underneath. Full, bitter finish.

7/26/2013 and 7/27/2013: Dogfish Head Life & ... Aroma: Juicy, sugary citrus with pineapple and papaya. Appearance: Shiny, bubbly golden color with and attractive and lasting ivory-colored head. Flavor: The bitersweet, perfumy start bleeds into a sugary toffee middle with a delicious, soft citrus peel finish; moderate level of bitterness overall; strong, but even bitterness and alcohol throughout. Palate: Medium-full body; smooth finish; great mouthfeel; sticky on the lips. Overall: I like the pineapple in the front and mango in the backend with a touch of resiny pine throughout; quite delicious!

Draught (sample and growler fill) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #91 for this beer.

S - Doughy caramel malts, sweet lemon and grapefruit citrus, pungent floral hops show up when swirled. T - Bright sweet citrus against a sweet and clean caramel malt.

drpimento (2349) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2013
From a properly chilled bottle: Poured with a massive, cream-colored, foamy,frothy head that lasts to the bottom of the glass and good lacing. Color is a clear amber with a few bubble trails. Aroma at first reminded me of oxidized hops, but then other qualities, such as caramel malt, spice, grass, & peppers, come through and round things out. Flavorís like nose, bitter is in front, fairly dry except in the finish where some residual sweetness lies; carbonic tang is just right. Body/carbonation are perfect for this brew. Finish is as stated above, has a bit of alcohol warmth, and has some length. This is a welcome reminder of more traditional American IPAs with a sense of balance. Very quaffable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Nimrodís place. Thanks Nimrod. Floaties, clear golden with white head. Delicate sweet apple bubblegum and shampoo aroma, generic bitter with a little citrus in the mouth. Light body, a little oily texture and bitter finish.
