Light hazy orange straw body. Citrus smell. Very hoppy. Just finished an Apocalypse Cow, and this is much lighter, but still hoppier tasting. Grapefruit and citrus taste. Good stuff

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a semi-hazy medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white 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 a broken ring behind.

S- The pungent hop character is nicely balanced by the sweet malt backbone. The more I sniff, the more I see that the hop aroma is more grassy and earthy rather than citrusy.

T- Earthy hop flavor, sweet malt and an alcohol presence that's not too noticeable but certainly there all the same. This is treading on barleywine territory but the assertive bitterness keeps me from fully realizing that sentiment. There's even some raisin and other dark fruit flavor that would suggest this is closer to an ageable ale rather than an IPA that needs to be drank fresh.

M- Smooth. That's the only word that comes to mind because this 100 IBU beer is not sharp, tingly, bitey or anything, just smooth. I would almost say that's the coolest thing about this beer. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- I must admit, I was expecting more of a bitter hop bomb than what actually ended up in the glass. Dare I say, this is almost like an English-style DIPA with its sturdy malt presence and subtle hop usage.
