Poured from a bottle into my arrogant bastard pint glass. A perfect creamy white head that is leaving some nice lacing as it recedes and clings to the glass sides. Has a golden orange look to it with a middling amount of bubbles from the carbonation bubbling up. Slightly hazy, definitely looks like an ipa which bodes well.
The smell, very smooth and malty is what I get initially. The hopping must not be too bitter or it's just brewed with a ridiculous amount of sweet malted barley. Definitely the caramel kind of sweet. But I don't get any alcohol whatsoever in the nose which honestly boggles my mind.
The taste is great, the nose wasn't doing a coverup or anything, it precedes the beer wonderfully. Such a gigantic amount of malt must have been used, this brew is seriously caramel sweet, hint of citrus from the hops for sure, but what really gets me is the aftertaste. It sticks around for a long while, gives my mouth that cool refreshing feeling as the sweet malt is taken over by the hopping which isn't bitter by the standards of a west coast ipa, but you know this is hopped up for sure.
Although the flavor was pretty standard, the mouthfeel of this brew is really what I like about it. It's seriously creamy feeling in my mouth and sooo smooth as it goes down. Makes it extremely easy to drink, and very fresh feeling which is a great characteristic of an ipa.
Overall it's a great take on the ipa style which has so many variants now it's awesome and I love having one that defines its own category which this definitely does. Kudos again to Dogfish Head who has never ever let me down, always drop a lot of dough on these and it's ALWAYS worth it. They take their brewing seriously and obviously don't lie when they say they like to enjoy their beers as well as brew them because nobody else would take that kind of pride.

I'm not a fan of IPAs and I've tried a lot of them,but this one is great. The balance is perfect it's not overly hoppy. Dogfish head hit a home run with this one and I think everyone should try it at least once it's well worth the money. It also doesn't leave that horrible bitter taste in your mouth when your done drinking it that most IPAs do.
