A: Pours an exceptionally dark golden hew which is pleasantly complimented with an eggshell white half inch head. The inside of the glass is practically painted white by the retention.
S: For a DIPA there is much more of a malty sweetness than expected. The hop notes emerge subtly, providing a pleasant complex citrusy aroma.
T: Complexity does not begin to describe this brew. The hops are present, but not in the typical bitter fashion that tends to linger on the back of the tongue. The malt sweetness works remarkably well at subduing the bitterness of the hops and the warmth of the alcohol. What truly comes to mind is a slightly toasted hop cone cover in syrup and dip in sugar.
M: Astoundingly perfect carbonation delivers the flavors beautifully throughout the mouth. Once the loftiness subsides, an overwhelmingly chewy sensation rushes in to replace it. Truly a wolf in sheep's clothing.
O: Quite an astonishingly unique brew. I know it's labeled as a DIPA, but try to be open minded when enjoying this beer. Dogfish Head uses "labels" like titles for a book. A few little words to describe an entire story, so sit back and enjoy.

12oz bottled 3/4/2014. Served in a DFH signature glass
Appearance: Pours a bright copper orange color with 1+ finger of a white creamy head. Decent retention and light spotty lacing. Body is relatively clear with medium amounts of visible carbonation.
Smell: Grapefruit like citrus, sweet caramel and toffee, pine, slight earthiness, touch of booziness.
Taste: Big malt sweetness balanced by hop bitterness in the finish. Flavors are more citrus and pine with lots of sweet and toasted bready malt character as well.
Mouthfeel: Medium/full bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium.
Overall: Really good double IPA from Dogfish. This one is a classic for a reason.

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.
