3.81/5  rDev -6.8%
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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Viscous tangerine.

S: Dank, resinous hops that are orange-like in character. Mango, nectarine.

T: Peach, mandarin or tangerine, hoppy but not overly bitter.

M: The thickness of a double or triple IPA without being too astringent on the finish.

O: Super impressed with this one. Apparently a "hoppy-dank amber" lies somewhere between a double IPA and an imperial red in taste and mouthfeel (though without the higher ABV).
