3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2006 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Dogfish Head may best be known for it’s "extreme" beers, but fortunately they also make more accessible beers like this Pale Ale, which they call their flagship. Beautiful orangey golden, unfiltered with a small, dense head. Very soft, malty character with a nutty touch and a bit of sweetness. Has the typical fruity ale character, and even though the hops are prominent, they don’t bite as hard as in an IPA. and 280306

Bottle at Brickseller, Washington DC
Hazy amber color. I didn’t expect such a poor, common beer by DFH, with paper aroma nad dry mouthfeel, and astringent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well-balanced session ale. It’s hard to wrap your head around the fact that there aren’t caramelized rose petals, sandalwood oils, hickory-smoked ostrich eggs or some other bizarre stuff in here. Imagine, a normal-tasting beer from DFH.

Medium amber color with a slight white head. Aroma is cat p---, citrus - must be Columbus - . Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is all hop. Could be a little bread in there. It finishes bitter - not like a DIPA, but really bitter. It’s a great APA. Could drink this all day.
