Bottle dated the 69th day of 2012 (a little less than 2 months). Poured into one of my Dogfish "fluted" pint glass.
A: Hazy bright orange, with a huge (3 fingers) frothy off-white head on top.
S: Cotton candy dominates. A touch of grapefruit underneath.
T: Citrus and Lemon, undetected in the nose, explode onto the scene. A welcome addition, as I was initially concerned by the nose. Grapefruit throughout. Cotton candy and a touch of breadiness near the finish line. The most pronounced flavor here, however, is the Citrus/Lemon, which gives this beer a bit of uniqueness, but I expect, ultimately, to wish for a bit more pine/grapefruit.
M: Thick, hefty, and sticky. Carbonation is low for my liking. Finish isn't terribly dry/bitter, but it does have a lot of sticky flavors left behind.
D/O: Too sweet. Over time the sugar wore down on me. Needs more hop bitterness to balance it out. Perhaps because of age? But it really needs to be able to last 2 months before falling off...
I finished it. I will likely finish the sixer. But I don't feel like I need to revisit again beyond that.
