4.15/5 rDev +10.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
The beer pours a deep unfiltered burnt orange color into the glass at the brewery. The head was decent; one finger in height and the smell of the beer was deep and restrained earthy hops with a slight sweet edge. As this beer (as of now) is not dry hopped the aroma is lacking but the smell there is pleasing. Very balanced.
Glug glug glug
The taste is more promising than the smell. The hops and malt profile are very well balanced but the hop bill is more apparent upon tasting. (Duh) The hop flavor is herbal bitter at first but really opens up with sweet fruit flavor like orange and citrus, along with a slightly resinous flavor as well. The malt is robust but balanced and this beer leaves me thinking of DFH's 60 minutes with is taste and balanced, although the nose is still lacking. The mouth feel is what is should be, certainly not watery or overly heavy, well done for me. This brew at this stage is full of subtlety and balanced and taste great. After talking to Glenn at the brewery about the beer, his plans to eventually dry hop are exciting as the only thing this beer lacked to me was a strong nose and the hop kick upon impact. That said this is still very good.

3.8/5 rDev +0.8%

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on February 3, 2014.
The pour is golden to light copper with a decent but short-lived head. Reasonably good clarity.
The aroma is very mellow which is how I like my IPA's really with its earthy hop and fruity character. Not explosive by any stretch of the imagination but pleasing on the senses.
The body is around medium but very smooth.
The taste is just as low profile as the aroma suggests with a mellow hop character, a decent caramel note, and an astringent bitterness at the finish. Lingers quickly but fades but it is memorable.

22 ounce bomber -> Dogfish Head Glass
A - Pours up a clear gold without much of a head. What head there is lingers for awhile, and there is some leftover lacing.
S - not much on the nose. Mostly a fresh grassy smell
T - fairly well balanced between malt and hops with a slightly perceptible alcohol note on the finish.
M - lingering bitter mouthfeel, good carbonation.
O - not too bad, taste is the best part fortunately.
