4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Details left out as I was writing it down when drinking. Orange pretty murky stuff with a big head. Looks like a proper dipa indeed. Fruity, hoppy and malty aroma, pretty complex. Oily smooth mouthfeel. Bitterish aftertaste, not that much though. Some alcohol.
I’d have another and with a bit more time to drink it, please.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oooh, aaah, little bit too much sea monkeys bobbing about in the glass. It is almost bright but the yeast here is almost off putting as it floats about giving it a negative vibe. Head is a soppy mess of dense foam, beigish, messy; great lace. Pungent, resinous, fresh hop nose bursting with notes of pine-needles, camphor, eucalypt gum, tree sap and blackbutt honey, fresh baked brioche and lemon candy. Very English in delivery. Floral on the palate with a Nottingham yeast vibe. Fragrant, zesty, spirited pot pourri and rose petal flavour. Biscuity, bready and heavy in the finish. Alcohol is well masked and well behaved making it dangerous. Short in the swallow. Huge presence of orange zest and juice. Body is medium and very oily. Massive bitter edge breaks it up. Quite nice. Really sessionable, which is trouble. (12fl.Oz, Bottled 26/03/13, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Love it! Never had anything from Weyerbacher until this one and I’m super impressed. Lots of piney grapefruit on the aroma. Super fresh smelling. The taste is spot on. Well balanced super bitter. Lots of pine, grapefruit and some woodsy stuff on the taste. Super refreshing just awesome beer. I love the use of only Simcoe hops here, it really shows what the hop does and how it tastes. Definitely will be having this again.

poured into a snifter, with a light amber color, had a nice nose of pine and grapefruit with the taste providing more of the same with a balanced flavor profile and slight malty background with a bit of an alcohol burn at the end. a well done brew and a good reminder of why i love the simcoe hop

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into Dogfish IPA glass.
Pours a deep, hazy, opaque copper with a creamy head. Strong citrus and grapefruit notes on the nose with resiny back notes.
Mild carbonation with a medium mouthfeel and a bit sticky. Sweet maltiness plays against the strong hops. Bitterness hangs on the palate for long enough.
Weyerbacher does it again.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter and a tulip. There was basically the same look and smell in both glasses.
The appearance had a nice ruddy orange coloring to it with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. The lacing stuck nicely to both glasses.
The smell had a nice spicy and piney aroma running under my nose.
The taste had a decent bitter piney and slightly citrusy flavoring. There was a nice sharp bitter citrus aftertaste and it had a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a fairly good sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation was appropriately harsh for the style.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good DIPA well worthy of having again.

Tasted on 6/12/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Maine Wine and Cheese. Pours lightly hazy amber with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is pine resin hops with some nice caramel and brown sugar malt. The flavor is about the same, this is a very nicely balanced DIPA, with plenty of pleasant bitterness. The body is a sticky medium plus with average carbonation and a long bitter resin hops and burnt brown sugar finish.
