Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
S - Floral, citrusy hops with a grainy malt backbone. As it warms, a spicy aroma emerges combined with a mild fruitiness.
A - Crystal clear light gold with a 1 inch white head with sticky lacing.
T - Grainy, bready malts balanced well with a moderate bitterness. A hint of booze present but well hidden for 7.5%. A spicy, peppery bitterness persists with a fruitiness (ripe apples and pears) that emerges with warmth. A dry finish with no lingering aftertaste or bitterness.
M - Moderately carbonated, although lower than I would expect from a Pils. Medium bodied.
O - Leave it to Dogfish to buck the trend of traditional Pilsners. This is not your traditional, nobly hopped, crisp and clean Pilsner offering. It is a flavorful, strong, original take on the style. While not strict to the style, it is certainly an interesting adaptation. Would recommend.

Got this at MOM's organic market in Herndon. Opened in my hotel room in the Crowne Plaza a few blocks away. Surprisingly, gushed on me, messed up the carpet a bit. Now to the review.
Very Murky yellow body with quite stable little yellowish white head. Head is creamy but looks a bit coarse. No bubbles visible
Nose is some pilsner malt, there is a whole lot hop aromas going on. There is some resin, noble spiciness and some fruitiness too, maybe pineapple
Taste starts a little sweet and is followed by resiny hops and bitterness, sweet pineapple again.
Drinks very smooth with little carbonation and the suspended yeast. Alcohol warms a bit.
I do not really know what to make of this. I expected a Pilsener but it is way too sweet for that. I think it is overly hopped but the hops are nice. It does not have the refreshing sharpness of a lager but it is smooth. The suspended yeast would make it a Zwickl still it is more an IPA than a lager. Do I like it? I am not even sure about that.
