NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Medium golden, lager appearance, thin white head. Moderate carbonation. Light, citric aroma, lemony, with some pale malt sweetness. Light texture, without being watery. Sugar cookie malt flavors, with a respectable hop bitterness. A decent session pale ale.

willisread (3174) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - MAR 8, 2017
Bottle from Old Town. Pours a hazy gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Grassy hops with some faint citrus and light grain notes. Clean and crisp on the palate with a balanced, albeit slightly dry finish.

Tap at Dogfish Head, Milton. Colour is cloudy golden with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Fruits, some spices, hops and malts. Spicy apa.

rondphoto (4355) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 28, 2016
on tap @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Aroma of citrus and malt. Slightly hazy light-medium amber, white head that drops to a full cover, curtain of lace. Taste is malt with a heavy-handed bitter citrus in medium fizz, then all fades quickly in a short finish. Too much bitter. Poor balance, uneven performance.

PhillyCraft (6898) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Bottle in 2011, clear or lightly hazy gold color with average sized head. Lacing wasnt much. Notes of lager skunk, toast, toasted hop, and grain. Nothing going on with this beer.

Draft pour. Clear copper with a big head of white foam. The aroma has grassy and herbal notes. Dry herbal notes in the taste. Medium body and medium carbonation.

DFH really bringing the heat to OBF. No insult intended but come on man! Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A nice toast, caramel and citrus nose. The flavor is more of the same, lemons, oranges, some toast earthy malt. Solid pale.

Maverick34 (3167) - New York, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottled. Fondly remembered from back in the mid. 2000s when I thought 60 minute IPA was a really hoppy beer. Good times.

Sekemoto (20) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Pours a cloudy sparkling amber with an average size frothy tan head. Looks really good. Aroma of sweet malt and floral hops. Flavour of malt, hops and citrus isnt hoppy enough -- in fact as it gets warmer it gets sweeter. Light bitter finish.

A favorite from years ago that Dogfish discontinued which was disappointing. I remember being at the Rehoboth brew pub one winter and the bartender said we discontinued it. I was ecstatic to hear they brought it back for a limited run. Golden color with a nice head that stuck around for a while. Pale ale nose to hit, weak smell. Not a lot of hop flavor, mellow and well balanced. More malt flavor on this then I normally like but again, balanced, not very sweet on the palate.
