viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - DEC 10, 2013
Mild, malty IPA, bit meh. Tastes somewhat underpowered, maybe i’m too used to having hoppy/bitter IPAs.

ciaranc (784) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 8, 2014
330 ml bottle from drinkstore. Clear copper, foamy off white head. Dusty malt nose, very English. Flavour is a traditional English IPA with a touch more bitterness maybe. Very light in body, very low carbonation. Short finish. Ok, not much going on.

Reddish clear color with a single finger head. Creamy looking head. Aroma of flowers and light grain. Taste is mild. Nice and balanced. Grain, flowers and a light bitterness. Very easy drinking. Palate is a little light.

330ml bottle@Cimmeria, Oviedo. 04-07-2014.
BBD: 15/02/15.
In short: a fruity pale ale.
Pours quite clear light amber, with some off white head. Short head retention, poor lacinf. Malty, fruity, subtle roasty aromas. Light to medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is smooth, fruity, citrusy,peachy, light bitterness. Enjoyable.

OldGrowth (2595) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Pint at the Albion London. Ok aroma. Sweet. Pine, light orange. Clean brownish orange color. Good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body creamy smooth mouthfeel. Bitter dry finish. Its ok. Flavor best part for me. Aroma tad mellowed. Nothing to scream about. Nothing to offend.

beerfest5 (1128) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 30, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a clear gold, medium white head, no lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus, caramel and bread. Taste is heavier on the malt than the aroma suggests. Still a nice balanced if thin flavor, some hop bitterness combats the malty sweetness. Overall way more of the Wells influence here than the Dogfish Head.

Graham77 (228) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Quite pleasant weaker IPA at only 4.5% ABV. The hops have a distinct lemony taste and aroma from presumably citra hops. Reasonably good.

Burgers (246) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Golden amber, small white head. Aromas of fructose and fruits. Taste medium sweet, light bitter, trace of saline. Starts unpromisingly but improves. Decent mouthfeel. Soft bitter finish. Ultimately very good.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
330ml bottle from Tesco, Camberley. Straw coloured with a fast fading white head and light carbonation; aroma of over stewed hops; chewy malt taste; with a sweet caramel finish. An ocean away from the real Dogfish Head IPAs.

On tap at a pub in Witney. Light hoppy smell, a bit buttery. Similar taste. Sharp carbonation.
