Poured into DFH Snifter
A - Pours a medium amber with a slight haziness. Two fingers worth of dense, white head with good retention and a sticky lace.
S - Citrus and a bit of resin in the nose, with a background of sweet, toasted malts. Feint lemon aroma in the background, but honestly, if I hadn't found myself searching for it, I don't know that I would have noticed it.
T&M - Starts with a crisp tang carrying a bit of a pithy quality. Fuller bodied with a generous malting, carrying a sweet, somewhat bready nature. Citrus and a bit of resin abound throughout, carrying a bit of an oily feel, but an intense citrus shows mostly in an intensely hoppy finish that persists long after swallowing.
O - Finely balanced, and one of the more interesting IIPA's I've had. Intense, but clean flavors. I'm hoping this becomes part of the Dogfish rotation.

Gotta say....love the artwork.
Huge white foam with a nice bright amber/copper colored ale.
Aroma has a lot of malt present with light lemon whiffs in the background. Wishing for more.
Taste was pretty good. I am getting more of the lemon on the swallow with nice hoppiness playing around with the malt.
Good amount of carbonation on each swallow, bit not overly.
Overall I was intrigued by the artwork and my man-love for DFH. Unfortunately I was not totally impressed with this offering. I was hoping for more hops and zest but was met with a bigger dose of malt. The lemons didn't make that much of an appearance to the party either. I did like reading the label though.
