Golden amber appearance, with a strong malty aroma, smells more like a stout to me. Hoppy flavor with a bitter bite. Sticky texture, medium bodied, with an abrupt finish, lively carbonation. Decent IPA, and another good beer from Dogfish.

Highly satisfying IPA. Nice head well carbonated. Palate is light enough with hints of hops that say hey this beer deserves another round and another. ;)

10/16/05 bottle. Pours a 2 inch white head and a cloudy light orange color. Smells sweet with light malts. Quite carbonated with a very clean finish, not extremley hoppy like I expected. Good lacing in the head and throughout the beer. Long lasting head. Slight watery finish which peaks my interset to why that is. Great brew and well deserving beer from DFH.

Small head out of bottle, very thin. Nice color, kind of dark copper. Nice aroma, smooth bitterness, very pleasing taste. Ends with some hoppy flavor that lingers in the aftertaste. Aftertaste is pretty good for an IPA.

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2006 Pours light-brown, clear, and nicely carbonated with off-white head. Smells hoppy with hints of citrus. Very hoppy flavor but nicley balanced with a lasting bitter finish. Lively palate. This is the IPA I measue all others against.

jcwattsrugger (12251) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2005 12oz bottle-pours a tall creamy tan head. Color is deep gold. Aroma is crisp hops. Taste is hops backed up by some malts, good carbonation. Has a sharp bitterness and finishes with a flatness and a hint of caramel taste. 3.1 was my original rating. * I have had this again, since 1st rating it and have enjoyed it more. bottling info stamped on my subsequent efforts is 5224 B-12056
