Looked forward to drinking this since I bought a single in a mixed six a couple of weeks ago. Supposed to be one of Dogfish Head's premier offerings.
Poured directly into a tulip glass from the 12 oz. bottle.
a. Translucent medium amber with a two-finger head which slowly dissipates to a half finger foam film with dense lacing. Halfway down, the lacing is still thick back up to the top. Wow.
s: Fruity plus,
t: Complex fruity-hoppy-malty, leaving a delightful woody aftertaste almost as though you licked the beer off the inside of an oak cask (and did not get any splinters in your tongue). The combined tastes are a velvety treat, but the hop bite increases as it warms, becoming somewhat harsh, although still very tasty.
m. Moderate to heavy, but smooth.
o. Really top quality all the way, So good I'd rather sip it in an easy chair all alone than use it as a refresher/session ale, but then at 10% ABV sessioning wouldn't last long with me. Definitely worth the extra cost for its added dimensions over most other IPAs.
