UPDATED: APR 16, 2006 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Dogfish Head may best be known for its "extreme" beers, but fortunately they also make more accessible beers like this Pale Ale, which they call their flagship. Beautiful orangey golden, unfiltered with a small, dense head. Very soft, malty character with a nutty touch and a bit of sweetness. Has the typical fruity ale character, and even though the hops are prominent, they dont bite as hard as in an IPA. and 280306

Draft in Gaithersburg. Hazy golden color, small white head, decent lacing. Aroma of citrus, hay, white pepper. Taste starts with decent hoppy bitterness then peters out toward the finish.

Hazy amber color. I didnt expect such a poor, common beer by DFH, with paper aroma nad dry mouthfeel, and astringent.

Oakes (16469) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2001
Well-balanced session ale. Its hard to wrap your head around the fact that there arent caramelized rose petals, sandalwood oils, hickory-smoked ostrich eggs or some other bizarre stuff in here. Imagine, a normal-tasting beer from DFH.

bhensonb (14615) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Medium amber color with a slight white head. Aroma is cat p---, citrus - must be Columbus - . Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is all hop. Could be a little bread in there. It finishes bitter - not like a DIPA, but really bitter. Its a great APA. Could drink this all day.
