One of the best beers Ive had. As hoppy as any IPA short of Stone Ruination or the 120 Minute, and as complex as most imperial stouts. At the same time, its accessible even to non-hopheads. Try this if you havent already (hell, even if you have).

Bottle. I was greeted by a pungent aroma of hops. Appearance was golden clear with nice head and lacing. Flavor was overwhelming citrus and orange peel. By the bottom of the glass I felt like I was back on the California Grapefruit diet! Too much citrus for flavor for my liking. I dont think there will be a repeat performance for this Dogfish product in Pods World.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Very strong hoppy aroma. No room for any other scents in here. The Flavor is strong nose of hopps, but the height of the hoppy flavor was very mellow and quite pleasent. The finsh was fast and clean. This the type of beer that is easy to drink and hids its high alcohol content. Great beer.

Powerful and pleasant aroma. Hoppy. Sopay white head that dissipates quickly. Clear amber color. Taste is hoppy and bitter at the end. Up front taste is fruity/orange. A great beer!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 A favorite i loved to go to. Great aroma. Citrus and sweet biscuit malt. Palate full yet carbonated. Nice lacing. Flavor sweet citrus (some pine) hoppiness.Quite sweet but finishes with lingering bitterness. Excellent IPA

One of my favorite beers. Wonderful aroma, warming flavor. Its a beer that just feels good to drink. Must have food on hand because IPAs give me the munchies.

Bottle. Fantastic IPA/Double/Imperial IPA. Very aromatic, and a nice taste of oranges and grapefruit.

What a great beer. This is an excellent IPA that is plesantly aromatic as soon as you pour it into a sniffer. This most recent sampling was from the typical 12oz bottle. The pour is lively with a moderate head that gives way to an attractive clear orange hue. A heavy taste of orange and grapefruit grips you as you sip it but is balance nicely by the incredibly hoppy-ness of this beer. The finish is nice but slighty sappy but it still is not too overpowering. One of the best beers for your $.

blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - JUL 25, 2006
Best IPA in my book. The flavor is present, yet not overwhelmingly bitter with grapefruit hops. Pours tawny golden in color with a decent head and some good lacing. A bit heavy mouthfeel, hence the imperial name I suppose. A good one.

abb73 (27) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Strong resin aroma with grapefruit undertones and apple & pear in the background. Pours a crystal orange with a mostly diminishing head that leaves good lacing. The initial flavor is of sweet caramel malt balanced immediately by a rich floral hop bitterness. Both a candy sweet and bitter hop aftertaste. Great beer, my only complaint is the palete is a little too syrupy.
