4.08/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

330ml bottle into a pils glass. Clear golden orange, big, big tight head and quite a bit of lacing. Dead handsome. Bubblegum and white grape on the nose - I think Kiwi hops, although I'm pretty sure they didn't use any - also a bit of bread, lemon and elderflower.

Like drinking liquid flowers at first, then everything sorts itself out - spicy, grassy saaz, a bit of slightly off dank citrus (Simcoe, maybe), more flowers, honey. Some alcohol bite. It's not well hidden but it does contribute quite nicely to the flavor profile. Slight sour bready lager finish. Lingering bitterness builds with every sip. I sip it again as I'm about to finish this paragraph and notice more stuff. Eucalyptus.

A little thicker than most pils, but it does have more going on than most. Works out well. Silky. Very pleasant. I've had a few of these recently and I like it more and more. Could drink a ton.

4.34/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

appearance: Clear medium Golden. Huge billowy head with loads of messy lacing that stick to the glass forever. Quite a looker.
smell: Rather subtle but getting some bread, some leafy, grassy notes, some citrus and a bit of peppery spice.
taste: Much like the nose. nicely melded flavors, with that hint of spice in the finish.
overall: very drinkable, creamy brew.

4.61/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: 2" of hazy burnt orange liquid with about 14" of thick white head. This might be the most overcarbonated beer I've ever poured. After it finally settles it reveals a glass full of hazy orange beer with a nice retained head and lace.

S: Complex interplay of sweet orange ,lemon, pine, nutmeg, clove, caramel, yeasty esters.

T: Wow. Really nice flavors of citrus hops, some pine, some tropical fruit, light nuttiness, caramel. Very yeasty as well.

M: Much more full bodied than any pilsner I've had before. Its creamy and light. Doesnt have a carbonated feel at at all. Not nearly as crisp and dry as most pilsners but I like this mouth feel a lot more.

O: Amazing pilsner. Only one Ive had that I like more is Humulus by The Bruery and its very close.

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£4.20):
Light, clear amber with a 0.5cm, creamy looking head that is a white & holds well, leaving some nice lacing and stopping short of going patchy on the surface.

Citrus, orange peel and some spices, the beer is quite hoppy for a lager and some pine and bitterness comes through early on. Malty base with faint biscuit & sweetness rounding things off.

Grassy hops with some citrus & pine with a malt base & some sweetness making an appearance alongside some biscuit & spice. Orange, pineapple & tropical fruits all come through as well.

Thicker than I expected, coming around just past medium bodied & it seems fairly well carbonated with a pleasant citrus tang and a crisp, dry finish. The alcohol content is very well hidden throughout with a sharp feel that goes down well.

A nice beer with a good malt and citrus base, some pleasant fruits and a good balance between flavours. The alcohol content was very well hidden and the beer was a good, highly drinkable one.

3.79/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: an awesome brown 330mL bottle with a super-long neck and a squat little embossed body. A very stylish label too - a great-looking package.

Appearance: pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with extremely fine, sporadic carbonation. A one-and-a-half finger white head rises up and hangs about, slowly dropping to a thick cap. Absolutely amazing lacing across the entire glass - some of the best I have ever seen. A great looking beer.

Aroma: a bit disappointing after the appearance to be honest - very light aromas of citrus and particularly tropical fruits. Pineapple and grapefruit take the fore. Update: once the beer has warmed some more (from initial taste at 6-degrees to 9-degrees) there is a stronger aroma with additional sweet sugar.

Taste: lemon citrus and tropical fruits up front, with a sweet malt backbone. Some spices also.

Aftertaste: the sweetness drops away a little, to be replaced with some hop bitterness and more spice.

Mouth feel: a moderate feel with fine carbonation, quite dry on the finish. Pretty decent.

Overall: this is the first Dogfish Head collaboration beer I have ever had, and it doesn't disappoint. Plenty of citrus hops and tropical fruits, with spice and malt. I still don't think it's worth AU$120 a case of 24 x 330mL, but one every now and then definitely won't hurt.
