Pours hazy light amber with an orange blush. Has a subtle glow. About a fingers worth of white foam that fell fast to a thin film on top and an island of big bubbles. Soapy lace. Nose is fresh. Melon, caramel malt, hop floral and underlying spice. Tangerine and grapefruit. It's full of citrus and smells sweet like a hop punch. In the glass the malt smacks of a little brown sugar and soft earth. Taste is grapefruit up front with all that sugar and herbal citrus. Dry grain and a little pepper. Finishes with pine, an assertive bitter and some resin. Body is light but sticky.

This is a lively beer. Crisp and has plenty of rousing hop bitter without being too aggressive. It's dynamic and while it could have used a touch more bread the malt was as sweet as possible to keep a good balance between the ever expanding hops. They take you on a fabulous ride form grass and perfume to citrus fruit delight and a terrific bitter. There's a bit of excitement in the drink and a colossal aftertaste that lingers and makes your mouth water.

Appearance is copper with a finger of head that enjoyed good retention. There is a distinct fresh hop nose to this offering. The malt and hop flavors combine well throughout and the finish possesses a solid hop bitterness (perhaps with a bit less punch than the smell would indicate).

This is a very drinkable and solid IPA.

12oz bottle poured into a nonic pint.

A - Good clarity, copper color. Off-white head holds an adequate cap. Plenty of lacing clung to the glass.

S - Pine bomb. Has some underlying biscuit malts. Resiny hops, some solvent-like aroma.

T - Pine hops show bitterness very early. More of a toasty malt dimension underneath the onslaught of bitterness which gives sensation to my whole tongue. Some sweetness midway and finishing up with a lasting wallop of resiny pine hop flavor.

M - Medium body, medium to medium-light carbonation. Finishes dry but has sweetness in the taste.

O - Some haziness to the brew but nice appearance overall. Aroma showed little dimension and was putting off some harsher alcohol. Little sloppy going sweet mid palate. Too hop heavy (blasphemy!) from being just resiny to the point of unpleasantness. Could use more body but feel was descent.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says 020613 and 060613.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch cream-colored head that retains well before becoming a thick sheet of surface foam. Fluffy, non-resilient lacing.

S- Piney hop aroma that has a bit of a plastic-y, medicinal fume to it.

T- The bitterness has little character to it as the plastic continues on into the taste. Still, easy to drink since the alcohol is so light. Not much malt going around, just one-dimensional bitterness.

M- Sharp and not so pleasant. Probably the main downfall of the beer. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- An IPA that's bitter just for the sake of being bitter. Quite underwhelming.
