3.81/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16oz can poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A - Pours a super clear medium amber color with a thick finger of fluffy pale tan head with excellent staying power. Nice webs of lacing left on the glass.

S - Resiny pine, thick grapefruit and fruity tropical notes of mango. Mild caramel maltiness, lightly buttery and bready at the base.

T - Buttery, toffee-ish and biscuit malt base...overall earthiness to the malt. Hops are medium level bitterness - not as potent as I expected given the aroma and the claimed 85 IBU on the can. Pine hop flavors and some grapefruit, although overall they are quite muted in the flavor.

M - Medium in body with a lively medium level carbonation. Earthy malt and bitter hops yield a well balanced beer. Hops are resiny and sticky and mostly driven with pine flavors...some grapefruit citrus joins the party too.

O - I expected a lot more intense hop experience here, given the claims on the can. I get mostly piney notes and a sticky resiny feel. Malt is more in the forefront and rather earthy overall. Well balanced beer...wish the hops stood out as much as the can claims they should.

3.89/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a crystal clear copper hue with a nice fat one finger head that fades to leave a nice creamy blanket. Solid

S - Aromas of caramel, pine resin, sweeter malts, rather balanced albeit light. Slight earthiness too

T - Taste is light caramel, some pine, faint citrus, light peppery hops with slight spice. Malts are slightly heavier with this, perhaps not super super fresh. Still, a solid amber.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean, crisp, slightly thin though and the alcohol is lightly noticeable.

O - Overall, a solid amber ale. Nice appearance and aroma though wish it was a bit hoppier. Still, not all that bad.
