4.05/5 rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured into a Dogfish Head Pint glass from 12 oz. bottle.
Appearance: Goldish in color--pours a nice 1.5 finger head (fluffy white) which diminishes fairly quick. A decent amount of carbonation bubbles up.
Aroma: A fantastic smell. The first thing that jumped out was pine and resin. But there are also fruity notes (maybe lime, and I almost want to say pineapple). The hops are subdued behind these scents.
Taste: Hops stand out as a first reaction; it's almost the reverse of the smell where the pine and fruit stood out. After a couple more sips, I picked up new flavors that make this very nice--some grapefruit (which gives it a nice tartness), and the pineapple I smelled shows up in the taste, too.
Mouthfeel: This saturates the tongue. The aftertaste is strongly bitter and leaves the back of the mouth almost watering. Definitely a full Double IPA.
Overall: I'm glad I bought a 4 pack of this. Despite it being 9.4%, the taste and feel leave me wanting a couple of these. The neck label notes that this beer has 86 IBU's, which I at first found odd, but after drinking realized that the bitterness here really makes this beer enjoyable.

Pours a clear amber with two fingers thick of soapy white head; one ring of lace around the glass from remnants of the head; the glass is undisturbed the rest of the way down. Smell: apricot, grapefruit peel, pine - lots, garlic - a little. Taste: upfront it's summit-y...garlic and green with a white grape and cracker backing; then mid sip seems to change gears to peach, pine, and alcohol. A bit oily and booze slick. It's fine.
