danlo (3005) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
330ml bottle from Beer Cartel. Orange amber course with an off-white foam head leaving lots of lacing and aroma of malt caramel, toffee & mellow orange citrus. Taste is sweet, malty, caramel, raisins, honey, fruity floral orangey, marmalade, pine, with dank hop resiny bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, full to medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Well integrated flavours, very drinkable.

Zlotta (3104) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - APR 6, 2017
0.355 l bottle from Beergium, bottled in November 2016 (five months old). Clear, dark amber with a medium large, frothy, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, rather resiny and moderately fruity aroma of orange jam, lots of pine, mango and a touch of honey. Rather sweet, malty, resiny and moderately fruity taste of lots of pine, orange jam, honey, candied ginger and some blueberry, followed by a medium long, rather dry-bitter, very resiny and a bit herbal-grassy finish. Full body, sticky, creamy to oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Very much on the sweet side, huge malt character, but still enough hops for the balance, might be better with a really fresh bottle. Still very nice!

MaltCaptain61 (10) - Pune, INDIA - APR 1, 2017
floral, orange-like aroma, dark orange, crystal clear with light tan head, the head lasted for around 5-6 minutes, umami at the very first sip, but goes down to becoming a balanced malty and bitter, medium bitterness, slick on the palate, low carbonation with a long finish. Medium body.

Hard to objectively rate after high expectations for the beer and brewery. Definitely a good change for an IPA and beer in general. Surprised by the lack of fruitiness I'd expect from this type of beer but the bitterness didn't kill the experience for me, it even made me like it more for how complex the flavours were. Design: Not a big fan of dogfish head branding in general but I liked the hop illustration and colour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nogva (78) - NORWAY - MAR 28, 2017
Pours a dark and golden orange with a modest light tan head. Malty aroma of citrus, caramel and dried fruits. Medium body, slick feel, average carbonation. Taste of pine, lemon zest and some hop resin. Overall a delicious American IIPA.

pjotrapostou (175) - POLAND - MAR 27, 2017
Dużo chmielu, słodowa, solidna podbudowa, krtka, intensywna goryczka. Dobre, ale zbyt słodowe i zbyt słodkie.

czlowiekmotyka (233) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Aroma of tropical frutits but not too strong. Nice balanced bitterness but not too strong. Nice structure but a little but too much malt. Could be one of the best but stil great.

KraftowyJakup (263) - POLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Z butelki na początku lekko zbożowo, po chwili intensywniej, suszone morele, rodzynki, lekka gruszka, trochę przyprawowo, w stronę Belgii, odrobinę ziemiście, pod koniec mandarynkowo-cukierkowo. W smaku dość chmielowe, trochę kamelowe, ale nie mocno słodowoe, taka podrasowana English IPA. Oryginalne, ciekawe, ale nie do końca w moim guście.
