If I could give the aroma an 11, I surely would. Looks like a wheat beer, tastes amazing - fresh, slightly funky, sumptuously hoppy. Please Please serve at 55 degrees or so... you want to taste this baby - don’t freeze it!

From the bottle the pour is cloudy and blond and a thick white head, the aroma is floral slightly sweet and it smells gently hoped with a little citrus, the taste is citrus and hops and a little sweet, the finish is slightly bitter and malty.

[2/24/15] Draught at Hair of the Dog in Portland. Muddy brownish orange. Aroma of citric and slightly piney hops. Flavor has mild sweetness, citric and piney hops, a bit “green”, and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Nice.

Draft. How is a 7.0% ABV beer a DIPA? Rating as an IPA. Some floral hop aroma. Cloudy copper color. Flavors of unfiltered apple cider, cinnamon or nutmeg, resin and maybe some bitter or toasted nuts along with some spice (the rye). A world-class IPA.

Very grapefruit taste. Good balance between hop and malt. Better like grapefruit because it is very citrusy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of citrus, floral and hops with a hint of pine resin. Pours a cloudy gold color with a short lasting white head. Taste of fermented fruit and hops with a dry chalky feel and mildy bitter fruit finish.

Pretty great IPA, I’m getting some pretty sweet flavors, almost berry - ish I’m not sure if it’s because of something I just ate. Pretty cloudy appearance. Nice bitterness. Gonna let warm up a little and think more about it.

22 oz bottle. Tasted on 2/11/15. Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours to a cloudy hazy orange /yellow color. The aroma has citrus, grass, earthy notes to it. The taste has a balance of strong malt & some hop bitterness. As it warmed the flavor improved greatly. Overall a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nous ne sommes qu’un petit point bleu dans cet univers majestueux, mais il n’y a rien de minime avec cette Blue Dot, une DIPA concoctée par la brasserie Hair of the Dog Brewing, originaire de Portland en Oregon. Un mince film de mousse se sauve promptement d’une robe brunâtre à l’aspect marécageux qui laisse deviner une forte présence lupuline et de seigle. Le bouquet est parfaitement à point et combine la facette épicée du seigle et les cannonades résineuses des cultivars de houblons utilisés. L’amertume attaque le palais de plein fouet, mais s’esquive rapidement pour laisser la chance aux céréales d’étaler toutes leurs saveurs qui sont majoritairement épicées, mais également légèrement sucrées. Ce côté sucré coupe l’amertume un tantinet, les houblons en profitant donc pour prouver leur existence en dégageant des notes citronnées et gazonnées assez intenses. La texture collante et la carbonatation sont en excellente juxtaposition, et créent ainsi une bière si facile à boire.

Poured from a 22. The beer looked like something from the American Pie movie. Aroma was a bit barnyard. Taste is a pretty decent standard IPA offering. Somewhat sweet with a barnyard flavor. Not bad.
