The four-inch, frothy white head competes for space within the Dogfish Head fisheye pint glass. The hazed, honey-amber (SRM 8) beer with occasional carbonation eventually dominates as the head slowly, slow as in continental drift, turns rocky as it gives up sticky patches of lace.
Strong pineapple up front yields to fresh pine and grapefruit. Mandarin orange and floral notes come out later.
Lunch is far less intense in flavor profile than the nose would suggest. However, mild grapefruit and light caramel combine as bitterness builds into a lengthy finish. Sweetness does come out much later with fresh orange flavors.
Well carbonated with a medium body and soft woolly texture. Alcohol is as expected in this quite dry beer.
This is a great beer to enjoy while unwinding, but would go equally well with an afternoon ballgame.
