hotstuff (5114) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Rated on 9-30-2016 at Black Dog Pub, Fort Wayne, IN. (Draft) When served, the appearance is a small fizzy white head that is mostly lasting, lightly hazy pale yellow body, no visible carbonation noted, and a good amount of lacing. The aroma is light citrus hops, some fruit and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer but nothing really special about it stands out. It is not one of the better Dogfish Head beers that I have drank/rated.

lamas (1635) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Draft at Dogfish Head Alehouse, Gaithersburg, MD location. Arrived at the table a clear amber with a skim of a beige head. The subtle grassy aroma featured some lemons, zesty citrus rinds, wheaty grains, and just a dash of spiciness. Went down fairly thin. The taste started with some semi-sweet grains and quickly transitioned to some zesty citrus qualities. Boring and totally forgettable.

appearance: clear medium gold, creamy white head, minimal lacing. aroma: light toast, lemongrass, hint of flowers and citrus. taste: as the aroma indicates, with a hint of honeyed sweetness. finish: slick palate, quick finish, with a bit of lemon bitterness. notes: Fine.

thedm (6103) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2016
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing. The weak aromnotes of a contained malt hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
