4.18/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A - Pours a cloudly orange amber, with a soapy white head. Leaves a wet lacing trail down the glass as it dissipates into a thin layer of foam.

S - Subtle hop aroma with notes of citrus and pine. Some malty sweetness also comes through.

T - Well balanced brew with notes of caramel malt and a great hop flavor that doesn't dominate. No alcohol burn at all.

M - Incredibly creamy and smooth, with good carbonation.

D - Probably the easiest-drinking DIPA I've ever had. Terrific mouthfeel and very well balanced.

3.38/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Looks clear and dark amber while pouring, but fills a Dogfish Head snifter murky old bronze (SRM 17-18). Some yeast likely migrated to the glass. A scant white head leaves spotty lace and a thin white film.

Bell Ringer is quite malty with some hop resin and pine straw. Caramel and honeydew melon add to a dark tea aroma.

Light bitterness and tea aromas translate directly to the flavor profile. So much so that it is all that I perceive long into the finish.

Alcohol is as expected in this medium-bodied Strong Ale. A silky texture and acrid notes are brought out with soft fine carbonation.

This beer was sampled both fresh and after 2 ½ -years-age. Neither version was particularly notable, however, age did clean up some muddled flavors and added to complexity and the aroma. Alcohol did tone down as well. Both versions scored similarly.
