Nice draft serving of an iconic DIPA, unfortunately a bit too cold to feel its full richness on this occasion.
Presentation: 10 oz draft serving at a Dogfish Head Ale House. Menu has a small and fair description of the brew. Shows Alc. by Vol. (9%) Served in a snifter.
A - Medium amber with a short foamy head touching the rim of the snifter, and leaving rich lacing and a solid top layer.
S - Hoppy nose, pine, resin and grapefruit and a ranging sweet malt insinuation. There is a conflicted sense of draft freshness with a surprising subdued nose.
T - Resin and citrus coating a fresh sweetness and bringing back the assertive but soft profile.
M - Medium body with an assertive presence. Great mouthfeel, and small and balanced carbonation.
D - Deceptively drinkable for such a brew. This serving on the snifter sends a strange message asking for a slow enjoyment but with too cold, and quaffable a profile.
Notes: Remains a personal classic and a great draft serving but this one today... In general I´m finding they have the brews too cold for my liking at the ale house this time. In fact I´m not even sure I enjoy the snifter for this brew, I´d probably prefer it on a nice tulip glass, or an oversized snifter if anything. Hmmm, makes me think the bottle was far superior in any case.
