Poured into a Dogfish signature snifter. Label says 11/09/12
A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 3/4 inch tan head that bears great retention time before slowly meandering down to an 1/8 inch ring around the edge of the glass and full tufts of surface foam. Solid, semi-thick lacing.
S- Sharp, grassy hop bouquet that's rounded out well by the rye malt. Very pleasant actually. The hops are wonderfully floral and citrusy.
T- That's what I'm talkin' about. Flood of glorious hop bitterness that''s perfectly in contrasting unison with the rye malt. It's not quite as bitter as Union Jack, though. Much more enjoyable. There are tropical fruit notes but they're distorted, in a good way, through the semi-roasty malts. Also some light spice.
M- Delicately creamy and robust. Medium carbonation is on point.
O- Such a great beer on so many levels. I'm having trouble finding a single flaw.
