750ml bottle, thanks Aleksi & Jay

Bottled 01/29/13 - Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of aged hops, vegetables, caramely malts and mild hints of hops. Taste is sweet, malty and caramely with hints of toffee, aged hops and citrus. Finish is crisp, malty and sweet with loads of caramel, toffee and hints of aged hops. Would probably be pretty good from a fresh bottle, but this one is just way too old.

LearninBeer (394) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2014
The aroma is hops and malt; caramel and spruce/grass. Pours a clear copper/orange with off-white head, mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy and the carbonation average, the finish bitter. Very good.

bbertels (122) - NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. A somewhat strangetasting IPA; some caramelly malts, some wheat taste and a slightly off-hand, bitter hoppy taste. Tried to warm it a little but still found it to be a bit too unbalanced (and not in an interesting way) for my taste.

liquidhedonism (178) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2014
750 mL bottle from Uptown Market in Braverton, OR. Aroma is floral and sickly sweet, with hints of honey, bubblegum, and cotton candy. Mouthfeel and taste is way too sweet throughout, with a bit of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Hard to drink much of this one.

julesjis (150) - Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Poured from a 750ml. Color is a nice amber color although the beer is very cloudy and it looks "thick". Aroma and flavor are floral/citrus with a nice subtle bitterness in the after taste. The beer is very easy drinking for the 8%, but the price point is highway robbery. You do pay for the name and I am a sucker for Dogfish Head...

Dark gold pour with a small head, very nice aroma. Pine and citrus flavors with a bit of malt coming through.

zach8270 (3583) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2014
(bottle - 750 ml) Cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. Citrus and pine are heavy in the aroma with a hint of pepper and floral under it. Flavor is bitter hops with a heavy pine undertone and a bitter and lingering citrus finish.

"Full disclosure - I did not pay for this bottle, and wouldn’t have. I’ll drop $14 or more on a 750 in a heartbeat, but not for a wheat IPA bordering on a double. This did not exceed expectations, either. Nice aroma of pine and spicy hops...same in the finish. But, even though this is fresh, and dry hopped, it did not taste fresh. Too malt heavy. Pretty pleasant beer, but an absolute rip off at the price."

Transfer from BA review on 3-26-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a medium amber color golden color with a nice one finger pure white head. The head has very good retention, slowly fading over time to leave a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma was not all the heavy but consisted of a nice blend of fruity aromas as well as some other lighter hop smells . The fruit was a mix of melon and some tropical notes of tangerine and mango with the hoppy notes being mostly of a nice mix of grapefruit, floral, pine and herbal smells. Taste – The taste begins with a mild hop flavor of a grapefruit nature and a fruity flavor. The fruit flavors are mainly of a melon nature creating a rather sweet and lightly hopped flavor. As the taste advances other hop flavors begin coming to the tongue as well the melon lightening to a small extent. The hop flavors that begin taking over are of a more herbal like nature with the melon now being replaced by some flavors of honey and a light tropical fruit flavor. Toward the end, more hop flavors of an herbal and grassy nature dominate the hop taste to leave a moderately sweet and “green” flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the more syrupy and thick side with a carbonation level that was rather average to just above average. The syrupy feel actually complemented the melon flavors quite nicely in my opinion giving it a more chewy yet slick fruit watery fruit like feel of a melon. The carbonation being on the average to just above average side was furthermore both nice of the melon as well as made for a quite easily drinkable beer. While the carbonation was nice for the melon flavor, it did hide some of the hop flavors, so… it is sorta a toss up on the mouthfeel. Overall – A fairly melon sweet but overall quite drinkable brew with a good hop blend. While I would have liked a little more hoppiness, it was overall a quite enjoyable drink.

Bottle. Dark ruby/copper with thick off white head. Aroma is caramel, apple and grape juice. Taste adds some light woodiness and just a hint of hop bitterness. Medium sticky mouthfeel. Ok.
