A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. This beer is an excellent candidate for use with Randall The Enamel Animal! 90 ibu

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2006
(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

Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit mittelmäßiger Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr hopfig, fruchtig, malzig. Geschmack sehr malzig fruchtig, stark exotisch fruchtig, wunderbare Aromen.

Leighton (22819) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Draft at the Euston Tap. Pours clear, shiney gold with a modest, tight, white head. Good and hoppy nose with pine and light fruits, along with tons of malt. Very sweet flavor with notes of caramel and honey, and plenty of bitterness, but not at all abrasive. Medium to full in body with average carbonation and a fairly resinous mouthfeel. Lightly warming on the finish with tons of sweetness, malty caramel and sugar, and plenty of lingering bitterness. Just great and super drinkable. Worth the reputation.

Rasmus40 (22162) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle from Voldby. Hazy orange with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and moderate hoppy - grapefruit. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish with warming alcohol. 191013

Koelschtrinker (22074) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Hopfiger Geruch, leicht nach Kaffee. Der Hopfenantrunk ist dementsprechend recht malzig und karamellig, zudem alkohlisch. Die leichte Kaffeenote ist schmeckbar, röstig. Karamellig bleibend, vollmundig, die Hopfiegkeit gerät teilweise in den Hintergrund. Sehr würzig-malzig werdend, cremig, hefig frisch, aromatisch. Sehr gut! Test vom 13.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,13,12,13,12,13 - 12,40

Amber color, bright, hazy. Fruity and sweet, almost a special Barley Wine, not the expected IIPA.

Beautiful copper-amber color, creamy head. Wonderful hop aroma. Explosive; I like it because the maltiness can somehow support the huge hopping. And the fruity character in the nose and palate. Excellent IIPA. Thanks Philippe (Bov) for sharing this bottle.

Bottle on my balcony of the Shore Hotel, overlooking the Pacific, that was probably the highlight of this number acquired from Surf Liqour Santa Monica, 16/04/14. Clear golden amber with a moderate off white head that retains well. Nose is caramel malt, straw, bitter grapefruit, bitter orange. Taste is caramel malt forward, orange pith, bitter citric tinges, straw, light grapefruit, pinch of spice. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close laced with hop bitterness. OK DIPA but can’t see how this acquires such high scores. I’ve had this many times in the past prior to joining RB, including on tap at Rehoboth and remember it being far better than this, perhaps an old bottle?

mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 12 oz. bottle, pours an attractive amber into chalice. Beautifully balanced aroma of intense hops, balanced by caramel malts and a potent grapefruit scent. Flavour is complex- high hops, but the bitterness is masked by everything else going on- grapefruit flavours are prominent as well as a considerable sweetness. Simply one of the best IPAs there is.

saxo (19583) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2008
Sample at EBF Copenhagen. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich with hops and flowers.

harrisoni (19548) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Cask at GBBF 2005. My beer of the festival. Never had anything from Dogfish before, so I had no idea what I was letting myself in for. Slightly cloudy dark copper/orange colour. Slight herb on the intensely hoppy slightly metallic aroma. This is just a huge rollercoaster of a beer. Superb. Good citric lime flavour mixed in with the hoppy finish. I could still taste this in my mouth the day after (4.5) Cask at GBBF 2006. The hop aroma is just so wonderful. Fresh hops, grapefruit and golden syrup flavours. (4.8) Cask at GBBF 08. This is one of my favourites and I looked forward to it for 2 years, so I had it twice on the day it came on before it ran out. Just so drinkable for a 9% beer, it’s untrue. 4.6/5
