12 fl ox bottle. Pours slight hazy and golden orange with a huge off-white head. Immediate aroma of grapefruite and pine. Solid caramel malt beneath. Flavour is perfectly sweetend with a nice set of fruite note on top, some mild spices appear here and there and there is a little edge og liqourice before the finish. The finish holds clear notes of alcohol, warming, a solid dry bitterness and a lingering fruityness.

Ungstrup (36889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 23, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2004] A hazy amber beer with no head. The aroma is grassy and hoppy, while the flavor is sweet with primary notes of alcohol as well as lighter notes of hops leading to a very dry end.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear amber with a small, off-white head. Some citrus in the nose. Only medium-bodied with some caramel. Soft and citrusy. Hoppy finish but not overly so. OK but not really a great IIPA. 220406

omhper (24776) - Tyres, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2002
Reddish amber. Flowery, citrusy nose. Full bodied, seet, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, and a late bitterness that just keeps growing. Despite its bizarre hop rate it somehow manages to remind somewhat balanced. As usual a very interesting brew from Dogfish Head.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2012 4th May 2008.
Very hoppy beer but well balanced by lot of malt. As undertone of fruitiness adds complexity. Smooth and silky. Finishes bitter, slightly fruity and dry. Original rating 3.8.

20th March 2012
Bottle in hotel before Norway trip. Clear gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth softish palate with mild fine carbonation. Nice hops. Floral start before deep rich citrus kicks in but somehow its still light and so drinkable. Some hop bitterness comes through but its balanced by the lovely malty sweetness. Finishes semi dry with some minerals. Immensely drinkable IIPA. Lovely.

Clear orange with medium white head. Aroma of flowers and banana. Big hops of course, but also some tones of citrus. Very dry finish. Good one.
