If you are a "hop-head" this beer is for you! Even if you aren’t, this beer deserves a try. Very nice aroma, in the correct glass (I had a goblet that trapped the essence very well). Crisp flavor with a great bitter hoppy bite at the end. This is a beer to be enjoyed not to be drunk! As a resident of Delaware and a devotee of Dogfish Head, I’d put this beer up against anything Sam and the gang have put out there! Easily one of the best IPAs I’ve ever tasted. Well Done.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Bottle at bar. Amber color, full white head. Epic hoppy taste with caramel, grapefruit and extremely dry bitter finish. If you enjoy hops, this is the one and only beer!

Light, bright amber, thin film of oily, off-white head. Aroma is of tons of sharp citrus and sap. lemon peel. Pine. Yum. Body is medium-to-medium-light. Flavor is driven by the hops, resinous, slightly spicy and sappy. Huge and refreshing. Not overly-bitter or astringent. Nor is there too much caramel showing through; this is definitely and IPA, designed to showcase hops. Very good. Not my all-time favorite hop flavor (I like the orange-citrusy/floral hops more than the tacky-sap IPA’s).

Clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is tropical fruit candy and grapefruit. Taste is pure hop resin and malt syrup. It ’s alcoholic and medicinal, but in a very good way with popping notes of various citrus fruits. $2.5/12oz

12 oz bottle: Aroma is a floral citrus hop texture, lightly fruity, with no real malt notes. Appearance is a clear golden with a thick white head that lingers. Taste has got a wonderful pungent hop texture a little bit of alcohol burn on the backend but overall a really nice big hoppy beer. Cheers!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the Bottle 2012. Strong damp Pine/Pine Resin aroma with some Grapefruit Hops.
Oily mouth feel , not as sweet as I would of expected which is a good thing, Alcohol is present but not overbearing and doesn’t detract from the overall flavour. The bitter finish lingers nicely. One of the better DIPA’s I’ve tried recently

Slightly hazy light amber pour with moderate foamy cream colored head. Big aroma of citrus and pine hops with some subtle grassy notes. Taste hits with a lot of bitterness initially followed by some fruity sweetness. Finishes off with a bit too much alcohol taste and warmth for my liking. Overall, a good DIPA. But not on par with some others such as Hopslam.

Has a super nice fresh pine scent. A nice smooth bitter that finishes quite well.
