Very good ipa. First smell is very pleasant with the citrus notes. The taste is flowery, citrus and has a long lasting bitter aftertaste. It had 9 percent, but it is not boozy at all. On my hotlist of very good imperial ipa's!

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

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.

Pours amber and clear. Nose is sticky fruity tropical hops, very fruity, and the hops blend well with the esters and caramel malts. Flavor is similar. Good beer.

Transfer from BA review on 4-6-12 -
Served in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a hazy amber color with a medium white head. The head faded relatively fast giving some nice lacing.
Smell – The smell was of earthy hop mainly. There were also some nice hints of citrus and a very light pine. All the hop aromas mixed with a nice bready aroma.
Taste – The taste was of a bready base with a good dose of citrus hop up front. The citrus gives way to a bit to some more earthy flavors toward the middle of the taste. There is a very interesting melon flavor that develops more toward the end of the taste. It’s odd, but very nice. Overall the taste is complex and nice with many other subtle flavors that rise and fall throughout the taste.
Mouthfeel – The body was higher than average in creaminess with a medium level of carbonation. The beer felt very nice on the tongue and complemented the taste profile well.
Overall – This was a very nice, easy drinking DIPA. Very well done.

Tap. Cloudy copper color. Small off white head. Aroma of....simcoe. Delicious. Not cloying or overly bitter. Surprisingly smooth at 9%. Great beer.
