3.28/5 rDev -15.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Into a pint glass.
A: somewhat hazy golden orange colored body that shows a nice deal of transparency, one finger white foamy head that rises a bit and then falls leaving a nice deal of foamy white lacing sticking to the sides of the glass
S: malty, earthy and grassy with a decent backing of citrus (seems almost like a mellow EIPA)
T: sweet and earthy through the citrus and malts combining to end up showcasing a sweet malty aftertaste that leads to a dry finish
M: sits about a medium on the body, but not as sessionable as I had hoped for, carbonation comes across fairly odd, but not so much in a bad, as its not harsh nor is it smooth, hmmm....ok, no worries
O: for the most part, its not a bad AIPA, just seems a bit different to me perhaps closer to an EIPA with an added earthy and grassy sort of quality to enhance the beer. There wasn't a date anywhere so, for the most part, I really don't know. If given the chance, I'd seek on tap

3.69/5 rDev -4.7%

12oz bottle poured into a Dogfish IPA glass.
A: Hazy orange color. Rocky white head retains very well. Lacing is clumpy and sticky.
S: Freshly cut grass, tangerine, grapefruit rind, and perhaps a suggestion of mint. Toast and caramel malt base.
T: Tobacco, dry herbs, cut grass, spicy and peppery hops, grapefruit rind bitterness clamps down. Playful tropical notes of lemon and tangerine. Oily. Big toasty malt base, hints of dark caramel. Drying finish with some lingering bitey hop oils.
M: Full medium body with some sense of weight. Drying, astringent, and oily hops. Moderate carbonation.
O: Billed as an English style IPA with a "descendant's twist." A substantial malt base attempts to balance a powerful dose of dry hopping with American strains, and it almost succeeds. It's an IPA that has the powerful American dry hopping that the modern American palate craves, but it keeps its foot just close enough to the English side of things so as to reflect the branding.
