look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

A: As the name implies, this beer is a beautiful ros´e with excellent lacing. Upon pouring, it blooms to a full two-finger head that dissipates over the enjoyment of the glass to a thin capping of foam that persists throughout the experience.

S: This beer is fruity and sweet on the nose, and has a fruity punch from the Centennial hops balanced with the earthy qualities of the Simcoe. i'm having trouble picking up the wasabi except for possibly a complexity in the aroma.

T: Sweet, but resinous, this well-balanced beer borders on IPA-like bitterness and alcohol burn with a less assertive bittering that betrays it's APA roots. I'm hard-pressed to detect any heat from the wasabi that the name of the beer advertises.

M: The bitterness lingers, seemingly forever. This beer has a nice balance to make it a great choice for summer nights when the sun has faded.

O: For a beer with the word wasabi on the label, I was expecting to feel a bit of heat from the horseradish. I'm not unhappy with this beer, but I'm surprisingly underwhelmed. There's so little heat that I'm having trouble distinguishing it from the bitterness of the hops and carbonation. Perhaps this offering is just not quite off-centered enough for my taste. However, I must say that I love the story behind the beer and that aspect about Dogfish Head in general. I paid $11 for my bottle, and for that, I'm quite happy with my purchase.
