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.

3.71/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Glass: Odell's Rastal Tulip.

Appearance: Huge, dense head with fine bubbles. Quite hazy. Very pretty! Excellent rings of lacking.

Smell: Aroma consists of spicy hops with a bit of a floral note.

Taste: Similar to smell, with lemon, perfume, floral notes, and a sweet malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: Dry finish, though slightly sticky.

Overall: Tastes like a slightly old 60-minute IPA, but with the spicy lemon hop bill of a pils. Not refreshing enough, nor flavorful enough.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

It pours clear light amber with a creamy white foam. Aroma has lots of floral hops, with pine and grass. The hop aroma is sharp and a reminder that this beer is continuosly hopped. The first thing that hits when tasting is the agressive hops, the body is light to medium and despite the hops it is easy to drink.

Poured into a tulip glass.
A nice golden color with a brilliant white foam head.
A light nose with slight hints of fruit.
A crisp mouth feel with tiny light bubbles. A touch of bitterness around mid palette.
A light hoppy grassy flavor, summery.
Over all an enjoyable experience.
