3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Numba 999. Bottled 03/03/16, so about 60 days old. Pours clear honey, white frothy head. Aroma is orange, caramel malt, burnt sugar, maybe just a bit old, but kinda malt heavy, could just be that DFH high gravity residual sugar I seem to find in so many of their IPAs. Dank notes (CTZ I reckon?). Flavor is nice hop bite, sugar sweetness, lots of pine, little bit of boozy burn to it, just in the back of the throat, orange, citrus. Not bad. Not their best IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from beer junction. Nicely flavored. It's marketed as an IPA however at 9 percent more like a double. A bit of melon and sugar undertones. It does have a bit of corn additives on the aftertaste which I'm not sure why that is there.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a warm reddish-amber from a bottle, nondescript fruit, maybe a peach or papaya. Flavor is booze, front, center, and back. Big rock candy sweetness, some bitterness toward the end. Weird IPA, okay though. Might need to sit a few months.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 03-03-16, 2016 Release. Pours golden amber. Pretty clear for unfiltered. Plus: taste fresh. Minus: Where are the hops? Lots of alcohol, for sure, but waayyy too sweet. actually cloyingly sweet. and alcohol forward. I do not understand this beers appeal. If I were to go with a 9% IPA, Stone’s enjoy by is so much better. This just adds to my perception that Dogfishhead is way overrated. not recommended for hop heads. good dessert beer, but that is about it.

Bottle from a small shop in CT. Pours out a deep golden amber with a lacy off white head. Complex earthy-floral-citrus aromas and flavors. Lots of bitterness with a sweet honey backbone. Long spicy bitter finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. On the verge of being bright, this settles into a vaguely murky pour of orange, well topped with an airy head. The aroma is really nice, hinting at spicy orange. This drinks with a pungent spiciness up front, but really settles into a nicely fruited ale, incredibly easy to drink for 9%. Another DFH masterpiece. (#6184, 5/6/2016)

Had a bomber of this in Tallahassee with Jacob and Zach. This beer was fine but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange-amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is mango, pineapple and citrus rind. Taste is all of the above in a mellow sweet kind of way followed by a mellow bitterness that lingers for a short bit. Aroma is better than flavor, but not bad overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Nearly clear medium amber color, White head, bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt and citrus earthy hops riding a wave of medium carbonation to a long sweet n bitter finish. Slight taste of bitter cardboard takes away from an otherwise solid brew.
