4.19/5  rDev +0.7%

Poured into Dogfish IPA glass

I have been sitting on this bottle for a while so it is not exactly fresh, although I did have some fresh but didn't bother to review at that time

A-copper, amber slightly opaque, 1/2 inch off white head, constant bubbling from bottom of glass which could be the result of the glassware, fairly thick lacing with above average retention

S-citrus hops upon the first whiff, grapefruit, mango, lemon, slight bubble gum, slight pine

T-sweet caramel, brown sugar malts out of the gate balanced by the hops in the middle and again the malts then a bitter finish. Hops taste mostly of grapefruit, lemon, orange peel and pine. Pine is most noticeable at the finish

M-med bodied beer that gives a mouthful of beer perfect carbonation of the style and abv

O-Very good beer, good balance...alcohol well hidden...not for the meek as you need to really like hops to enjoy this...appropriately named

Second time having this, but the first time was pre-reviewing. Pour is a beautiful translucent amber with nice white foam and beautiful sticky lacing. Taking a whiff gets you a noseful of piney, floral, hoppy goodness. And the flavor is like everything good about hops just exploded in your mouth. So delightful. And super easy drinking; at 9.5% I got buzzed in a hurry. I love this beer.
