Bottle. Clear very light amber color. Bittery hoppy on palate but not overkill. More bitter than hoppy taste. Little to no aroma.

jbethea (32) - Summerfield, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Clear amber color, nice head. light spice on the nose. A hop forward, balanced citrus with a hint of honey. Relatively middle of the road for todays IPA standards, but if considered just as a session, Id have to say its one of the best Ive had.

Somehow missed tasting or reviewing Dogfish Heads flagship IPA all this time - anyhow this well-balanced brew will definitely now become a regular feature in my beer selection. From the bottle, pours a pale gold-tinged amber color with steady foam and lacing, hoppy but not resiny aroma of pine and citrus, some bready malt. Flavor follows as a more mellow and floral hoppy profile with a background of slight caramel malt, moderate bitterness that doesnt stick to your palate. Northwest piney flavors cede to an aftertaste of citrus tang and orange rind. Medium-bodied and smooth, overall an enjoyable melding of East and West coast IPA accents.

Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - APR 20, 2017
Serving: from tap at Flying Squirrel. Aroma: moderate pine hops. Appearance: thin, white initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, medium-yellow body. Taste: lightly bitter and citrusy initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: light-to-medium bodied with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: okay.

Westy1130 (74) - New York, USA - APR 17, 2017
The perfect summer time IPA. Pours a light copper color with a piny floral scent. Hoppy without being too bitter on the palate; taste: orange, grapefruit zest, pine and lemongrass. Definitely a classic

Clear golden colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour have an abundance of floral hop.
