On draft at Mission Liquors. It pours a nice golden color with a big, creamy white head. The aroma is nice and balanced with fruity, floral hops and some caramel malt. The flavor is hoppy fruit and alcohol… definitely a good dose of some caramel malts. Solid bitterness. A touch earthy with a full body and a sweet/bitter finish.

Tap at Stagshead for some odd type tasting thing that seemingly had no structure but tasty enough brews. pours orange with very typical double ipa nose. tastes juicy of grapefruit and pine, with some banana, toffee, and malt.

Hey this one really has a Dogfish bent that is evened out by Sierra. I taste and smell oats in this. Pretty interesting. The syurpy texture reminds me of a barleywine. Great beer but not something I really like

Not too special. Nice hop flavor. Nice flavor in the body I’m not totally familiar with. Enjoyable. Good Sierra Nevada fresh hops.

750ml from CBX, Charleston. Nice looking beer, deep orange and almost pink grapefruit in places it seems. Full head, lustrous and elegant. Nose is initially bright and resinous, but quickly seems to turn into that sweetness I get from most DFH beers (hoppy ones very much included). Robust body, nice to savor on that level. But it comes across a bit too sweet again, with notes of honey amid the strong malt presence.

Sampled in the big bottle. A really smooth and refreshing ale. Not a huge hop palate but very nice drinking.

750 ML bottle poured into my Spigalau ipa glass. Pours a clear orangish amber color with a thick fluffy white head that leaves awesome lacing. Smells of wheat, caramel, citrus and butter. Tastes of all the same things but is a little on the sweet side which was unexpected also getting a sour note on the back end as well. Mouthfeel is mild and creamy with great carbonation and a dry finish. This is what I would expect from 2 of the most popular hop based breweries. You can definitely taste the influence from both west coast and east coast. It turned out well. This is really well balanced, I can’t even tell its a 8% abv beer. Cheers!

5 June 2013, bottle, tasted with DFH's new tasting glass! Yellow, clear, steady bubbles, thick white head. Nose is rich granola malt, big grassy hops, moderately sweet alcohol. Med body and moderately fizzy. Very nice and refreshing. Sugary, grassy hops, mild golden syrup, some botanics.

Nicely balanced brew. Buttery mouthfeel, especially for a sweetly hoppy IPA. Could complement a wide variety of meals.
