22 oz. bomber poured into Dogfish Head signature glass (June 9, 2010). No freshness date. Special thanks to Randallt11 who supplied this is a trade. Cheers Randall!
Eyes: Pours very hazy, darkish ruddy orange. An extremely fluffy brownish eggshell head will the glass up three fingers. Bubbles are tiny, retention and lacing are heavy.
Nose: Like it's younger sister Daisy Cutter (single), this has a potent, complex and impressive nose. I've come across few ales with such an impressive and enticing aroma. Top marks here.
Tongue: The alpha acid punch is in the same vein as the nose, but not exceptionally bitter, which is a very nice surprise. There is a good amount of sweet malt that balances the flavor and pushes the profile away from an APA and well into DIPA range.
Mouth: Smooth, rich, and well carbonated.
Libation: To be honest I expected this to be a hopped up version of Daisy Cutter, with would not necessarily translate well into an IPA. Somehow Half Acre has jacked up the gravity and hops, all while injecting a fresh, malt character. A truly great DIPA. Half Acre should be proud.
