Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says 2014.

A- Pours a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves behind large clots.

S- Tons of pineapple in the nose. Seriously smells like straight pineapple juice. Also some orange and grapefruit.

T- Flavor has more rye character going on with the citrusy hops playing well off the malt. Medium-high bitterness rounds things out nicely.

M- Sharp and a bit oily with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Awesome representation of a RIPA with the resinous hops playing off the spicy rye in a delightful way.
