Another I have been waiting to try, It did not dissapoint. The aroma was complex, it seemed to go in several directions but the taste was what I expected. It was an explosion of hoppiness that quickly balances out and makes you want more. It is another super brew from dogfish Head.

Had this a few times in my trip in NY 2 years ago. One bottle reached my home and settled there for a while, reviewing now. Amber color with bright orange shine, wonderful creamy massie head which stays forever. Hoppy smell, yeah. Aroma is strong, raisins, berries, load of malt, syrup and hops resin. Taste is unexpectedly sweet, yet a lot of sugars in it, and wonderfully balanced by strong dry hopping. Body is big, bold. Finish is bitter, quite long, yet fairly dry. Excellent IIPA.

Jesus this is great. Pours almost amber, Huge hoppy, flowery, yeasty, malty aroma. A meal in a glass - thick and chewy but cut with lots of juice an citrus, The tart fruitiness is cut by a malty softness. The big tastes just go on and on. Marvellous,

Bold, clear amber brown pour. Big, complex malt profile - bread, toffee, butter tart. Hop presence is piney and juicy - lots of tangerine sweetness on the nose. Taste is bold but not assertively bitter - juicy tangerine hop profile, lots of malt - caramel and fresh bread; cherry and vanilla notes. Short grassy bitterness in the finish, but overall I find this to be more malt-forward. Very tasty brew.

Bottle. Deep Orangey Amber in colour. Pungent aromatic hops. Very hoppy; resinous piney oily hops. Fruity; grapefruit and orange citrus, tropical fruit. Malty; solid malty base, lots of caramel. Rather syrupy. Despite the extreme hopping this is a very well balanced beer; nice balance between hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Dry bitterness in the finish. Very easy drinking. Smooth. Not an aggressive or extreme beer. Terrific Imperial IPA! (2010-03)

12 fl oz bottle. Pours rich golden brown with a little head. Peach, pine, orange, some musty oak, toffee, gingerbread. Starts very sweet but slowly fades into lingering bitter caramelised orange. Gorgeous.

Gold and light orange with a creamy white head. Caramel malt is heavier with just enough citrus and pine hops to cut the sweetness. Balanced but not as fantastic as everyone makes it out to be.

What a great beer! Not the beer that the 120 is but probably the top readily available IPA!
