4.81/5 rDev +13.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75
Glad my buddy picked up a four-pack of this stuff for me to try, this stuff is great.
Appearance: Poured a deep hazy amber with a thin white head that disappeared leaving delicate lacing along the edges of my tulip.
Smell: Hints of bourbon, piney and earthy hops and citrus aromas compete for the spotlight in the nose. A little bit of oak comes into play, and this is just a lovely aroma.
Taste: Delicious. Sweetness from the malt and also citrus and great bitterness from the hops. Slight alcohol burn as this warms but the 10% is masked quite well.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with solid carbonation and creaminess. A bit sweet but not overly so, the alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Goes down pretty smoothly.
Overall: I loved this IPA from Dogfish, as it is yet another strong effort from them. I can't wait to get my hands on another 4-pack of this stuff, definitely try it if you can!

3.49/5 rDev -17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: This poured a slightly red, almost orange, color. It had a 1 finger thick, off-white head, which disappeared quickly. The lacing was very thin, but it stuck around.
Smell: I could only smell a slight hoppyness, but definitely not as much as I expected it to be; At least not when I compare it to other Double IPA’s. I also sensed a heavy alcohol smell. Which is not a big surprise, this beer does have a 10% ABV.
Taste: This had a dark and thick taste to it. I definitely tasted the oak in it. That’s probably what gives it such a heavy taste. Just like the smell, it had a slight bitterness from the hops, but nothing too crazy. This also had a boozey taste to it, due to the high alcohol content.
Mouthfeel: This was definitely a full-bodied brew. It left a nice fizzy sensation on my tongue.
Overall: Where can I start with this beer? Well, it was definitely not what I expected. When I saw that this was an Imperial IPA, I was expecting a higher hop smell/taste to it. But I can only assume that the oak affected this. (just an assumption) But I have to be honest, the more I drank it, the more I enjoyed it. After I got over the fact that it wasn’t as hoppy as expected, I actually really enjoyed this. Another plus to this beer was that it left a good aftertaste in my mouth. It left me wanting more.
