Poured into a glass mug. Pours pale golden with an abundant, slowly dissipating white head. There are abundant tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. There are aromas of sweet malts and citrusy and piney hops. It's not a strong aroma, but it is a pleasing and inviting aroma. The taste follows the nose. There are sweet, bready malts accompanied by mild citrus and pine hop flavors. There's a mild bitter aftertaste, but this clears up relatively quickly. The body is medium with adequate carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry. The drinkability is high. Overall, this is a very good beer. While there are better IPAs on the market, this one is certainly worth a try if you're exploring the style.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says JAN 14 14.
A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Somewhat resilient lacing streaks down the glass.
S- Hoppy aroma with citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon zest. Trailing malt sweetness.
T- Starts off decent with a moderate amount of bitterness but soon washes away to some stale bready malt and a weak aftertaste. After that, it's just an uneventful ride to the bottom of the glass. One-sided hop character and a teasing bitterness that's gone as soon as you taste it. Drinkable? Yes. Exciting? Not the least bit.
M- Thin, almost watery but with enough carbonation to not be a total failure. Lightish body.
O- Though it's not as horrible as the score would lead you to believe, there's not much here for someone who's used to more potent and lively IPAs. This will be my beer for guests for the next couple of weeks.
