A - Light yellow-orange. I could care less about appearance, so unless it's really beautiful or really ugly, it will get the average of the other ratings. Who drinks a beer for appearance anyway?
S - Great hop smell. Fruit, pine, and a little spice.
T - Not as much fruit in the taste. Tastes much lighter than 8.2%. Good balance of hop flavor and bitterness. Not nearly as malty as Dogfish Head 60, which is probably why I like it more.
M - Very light for a DIPA, easy to drink.
O - Another phenomenal value in the IPA/DIPA category as I can get this for $9.99 a six pack. I first tried this together with Dogfish Head 60, Dogfish Head 90, and Southern Tier IPA. While it isn't as good as Dogfish Head 90, both of the Southern Teir IPAs were better than Dogfish Head 60 IMO.

While still better than the majority of mass-produces beer, this is a representation of the style I am not fond of. It's all hops with just a bit of malt sweetness before the hops take over.
Pine-y resins of hops comes through on the pour, with a pale wheat-straw colour giving up a decent-sized head that dissipated quickly, leaving very little lacing. The taste was as I described above - you get a malty sweetness on the tongue that quickly gives way to the 4 varieties of hops used in this brew. This BA cannot taste any hidden notes of fruits. Finish is very dry & bitter, and this lingers for quite a while on the palate. Mouthfeel is decent, a little thick & with good carbonation.
Overall, not a favourite of mine.
