3.53/5 rDev -12.4%
On tap at the Rehoboth Brewpub. Pours a chesnut-orangey color with an inch of head. Good amount of lacing. Floral hop aroma with lemon peel. Taste is alot of lemon. Floral as well but lemon peel dominates. Not very bitter for an Imperial IPA. The small write up at the pub says its 10% abv and flavored with lemon slices. To me the lemon overpowers any hops and it reminds me somewhat of Sam Adams Summer ale. Overall I am glad I tried it but it`s probably a good idea that they don`t bottle it.

According to the description this is an Imperial IPA spiced with lemon. I believe the ABV is 10%.
It pours a hazy dark golden color with a creamy white head and nice retention.
Aroma is very hoppy with citrus and fruity notes. Very low lemon zest is also perceptible.
Taste starts just like a DIPA (90 min) with sweet malts balanced by fruity and citrus hop flavors. Towards the end you can definitely pick up a lemony zest and tart character. Aftertaste is bitter and lasting.
Body is medium to heavy with mild carbonation. Drinkability is a little low for a DIPA probably due to the high citric aspect that this beer has.
Overall a sour ipa with lots of lemon presence. I feel that the hops already bring all the citric notes needed for this style of beer so there is absolutely no need to "citricize" it with lemon. But I guess it is DFH in one of their brewpub experiments so I'll take it!

Pours a copperish orange color with a nice one finer fluffy head which gives way to some nice strings of lace. The aroma is amazing nice big floral hop smell like being in a flower shop. The taste is not as strong as I would have liked. Floral hops and earthy piney hops make up the flavor. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. Drinkability is good it was an easy drink but lacking the big hop presence.
