A-Pours a tarnished orange color. Mostly clear. Head is a slightly off-white cluster of frothiness. Freckles of lace along my glass.
S-Interesting aroma. The wasabi is noticeable and it seems to bring some impending heat in the flavor. The aroma isn't incredibly powerful. Citrusy hops from the Simcoe and Centennial combo. A bit floral and a bit earthy.
T-A very unique flavor. Sweet, perfumey hops and a much more robust malt profile than in the nose. The finish brings forth wasabi flavor along with just the slightest amount of heat. Sweet rose petals and caramel. Has a sort of Amaretto flavor to it. Woodsy, maybe from the wasabi.
M-Medium bodied. Lingering, soft wasabi heat. Not very bitter. Just a little booze. Still manages to be more of a sipper.
O-Usually don't toss out money for many Dogfish brews; been burned too many times. This one did pique my interest so I went for it. It was, all things considered, a fairly fun beer to try. I would rather have had a pour of it on tap or shared the bottle instead of facing the whole 750ml but I think I'll be able to finish the job without much complaining.

This was an attractive beer. In a snifter it was a strikingly clear cherry amber color. There was a thick tan head that receded quickly, leaving a bit of lace.
Aroma was very herbal and earthy. Peppery in the nose. A bit of sweet fruit.
Herbal taste (? oregano). There was some late, subtle heat that I assumed was the wasabi. A little fruity, but in the background.
Medium-bodied and spicy.
I liked this beer a lot; I see I'm in the minority on this issue.
